• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Colosseum question

So, I was playing Colo, and I go to fight Dakim, and he sends out a Shiny Entei! However, I noticed that the Entei was not shiny before, so I beat it. Will it still be shiny when I go to catch it at Realgam Tower?


groove out!
Er... wait, what? You beat it because it wasn't shiny before? Whyyyy?

If I remember correctly—and I'm reasonably sure I do—shadow Pokémon are regenerated every time you battle them until you snag them, in which case no, it won't be shiny again unless you're incredibly lucky.

EDIT: And Bulbapedia agrees, for what that's worth.
