    LET'S FREAKING GOOOO!!! I found a shiny Floatzel on Route 221, such a random encounter lol, shinies shouldn't be required for mainline achievement sets imo

    I'm just glad I didn't have to spend hours with Pokeradar / teaming up with Buck or something, that would have sucked

    Lol, my luck is insane today, I also managed to catch a shiny 'M' unown while trying to get all of the different letters.

    Somehow it didn't pop for me after catching a shiny Bibarel. Was using the newer melonDS build for android which supports cheevos
    .

    @vlizzard, for what it's worth, I think I used DeSmuME instead of melonDS.

    You should report an issue (IE, make an open ticket) for this achievement to see if you can get a manual unlock.

    Congrats on catching a shiny :)

    Are you able to hatch a shiny using the masuda method?

    I got suuuuuper unlucky here. See I tend to do the Professor Oak Challenge set alongside the main set whenever I do the Pokemon games (I'm constantly having to switch back and forth between the two). So I had the POC set loaded up trying to find an Absol when I instead ran into a shiny Machoke, and since I had the POC set loaded instead of the core set I couldn't get the achievement for catching a shiny Pokemon. ;_;

    Thankfully the RA mods on the Discord granted me a manual unlock for this one. It would have massively sucked if I had to grind for a second shiny.
