I've always had this obsession over shiny pokémon. I always liked the alternate colors and the way they shimmered when they came out of their pokéball. The only thing I disliked was the sucky IVs that came with it. I could never get over how angry that made me. At the time I was breeding Pichu for a timid with Hidden Power Ice. I got a new foreign Smeargle the same day. I put him in the Day Care with my Pikachu and rode around on my bike.
I went through the same cycle, get egg, hatch it, check nature and Hidden Power, and release into the wild. I was about to release a Pichu into the wild when I saw a red star next to it. My love for shiny pokémon grew from there. She was of a quiet nature with a poisonous Hidden Power. She wasn't useful in competitive battling, but I still loved her. I took her to the nickname rater and named her "Sun Kiss". She seemed to like that name. It made her smile whenever I said it.
It broke my heart, but I had to put her in my PC and continue the endless cycle. When I finally got the Pichu I was looking for I had a whole party of eggs left. I flew to Skyarrow Bridge to hatch the remaining eggs. To my surprise, the third egg hatched shiny. Sun Kiss had a brother. I was thrilled. I checked its nature. He had a mild nature and Hidden Power ice. At this point I was jumping for joy. I infected them both with pokerus and went off to train them.
I started with Sun Kiss' brother who I affectionately named Sparks. I gave him a power anklet and had him fight off some Bascilun. He quickly grew and evolved into a Pikachu. I was so happy when I finished training. I decided to wait and train Sun Kiss. I wanted to see what damage Sparks would do.
I took him to the Giant Chasm to level grind some Audino.
"A wild Audino appeared!" I read.
"Go! Sparks!" His battle cry seemed a bit mutilated, as if someone cut off his tail. I ignored it as if it were nothing.
"What will Sparks do?" I chose ThunderBolt.
"Sparks refuses to listen." This puzzled me. I hatched him from an egg and evolved him into a Pikachu. He has to love me.
"Audino is too scared to move!" I became frightened now.
"Sparks loves you, do you love Sparks?" It gave me a yes or no choice. I taped yes.
"Would you have kept Sparks if he weren't shiny?" I hesitated. I thought for a while. I taped yes.
"You're lying." I read
"Would you have kept Sun Kiss?" I tapped yes without hesitation. She was my pride and joy.
The Pikachu cry happened again, only sadder and higher pitched.
"You don't love Sparks, Sparks will get you."
"Audino fled!" The screen turned black. I was scared for Sun Kiss and Sparks. I loved them so much. My eyes began to water. A flash of light happened; my character sprite was standing next to Sun Kiss' beheaded body. I cried.
"Sparks will have your head next! I went to Sun Kiss and pressed the A button on my DS lite.
"No pulse. She's gone . Forever " I was shocked at what I just read. my mouth was gaping open as I gasped for air.
"I loved her." I mumbled.
Sparks appeared in front of my character.
"Are you proud of Sparks?" I chose no. He had a not amused look on his face.
"Sparks used Time Travel!" The room spun around.
"Sparks lives to please trainer."
I was back at Skyarrow Bridge with the two shiny Pichu in my party. I looked at their information. Sun Kiss looked like the normal happy Pichu she always was while Sparks looked sad as if he'd done something wrong. I stuffed him in my PC and never looked back again. It was just me and Sun Kiss now.
