    I am mad right now.
    Why?

    Because someone at Gamefreak decided to not take a page out of the Pokemon Colosseum/XD book and allow you to target a Pokemon in a double battle, and FORCE YOU to knock out a Pokemon before you can capture the other one.

    Put that on top of an AI controlled player that doesn't understand the concept of "DON'T TARGET THE SHINY POKEMON!"

    I was at Reversial Mountain and I saw the shiny Skorpuri, my first reaction was to use the Master Ball but when I went to use it expecting it to play out like Colosseum/XD where I have to select my target, this happens:
    "No! It's impossible to aim with two wild Pokemon!"

    What a crock of crap! Does that mean that Miguel had some sort of impossible aim?! Did the snag machine have a targeting system and balls thrown with it homed in to their target Pokemon?!

    Because of this stupid oversight on the game programmers' part, I just got screwed out of a shiny Pokemon!
    I didn't have a Pokemon powerful enough to 1HKO her Musharna and all her other Pokemon. But trust me, I didn't leave Reversal Mountain without rage-team-killing her Musharna!

    Has something like this ever happened to you? Share your story! I wanna read about the most rage-inducing, B.S. time you encountered a shiny Pokemon!

    Now if you excuse me I'm going to level all the wild Pokemon at Reversal Mountain out of pure rage.
    I'm so rage-filled right now I feel like I'm gonna puke. >.<
    Gethsis?! Unova has a greater threat then him. ME LEVELING AN ENTIRE ECOSYSTEM OF WILD POKEMON OUT OF RAAAAAAGE!

    The snag machine actually does have a targeting system which aids Wes/Luke in capturing Pokemon in double battles.

    Across five generations of games and playing both legit and with codes, I had never encountered a legitimate shiny... ever. :(

    I wouldn't care so much, except that Game Freak, the *expletive*s at Smogon, and the nitwits at large on the GTS which follow their respective gospels, forced me to care. :(
