Shiny Pokemon are some of the most elusive creatures in the series, so giving one a chance as part of your collection can be heartbreaking. Pokémon Sword and Shield The player and Reddit user Cliffa-on-a-Laptop shared a video of the Max Ride fight, in which they had a chance to capture a Shiny Metagross. In the video, the user can be seen deliberating between the Poke Ball options before the election to use the Ultra Ball. While this cannot be seen in the video, the user mentions in the thread that they did indeed have a master ball, but chose to save it. Unfortunately, this was not enough to capture the ultra ball creature, which led to the birth of a lost Shiny!
Video from the Cliffa-on-a-laptop can be found embedded below.

introduced into Pokémon Gold And silver, Have become highly sought after shiny Pokemon. There are fans who dedicate hundreds of hours to discovering some of the most elusive shiny Pokémon, so the prospect of getting lost on one of those occasions is horrifying to say the least. What’s more, metagross is often used by competitive players, so the creature can be an invaluable part of a team!
I wish it looked like it wasn’t for Klefa-on-a-laptop! Perhaps his video would stand as a cautionary tale (not to be confused with the Kiefel Tale) about the need to use Master Balls a little more judiciously. Were introduced to Master Balls Pokémon Red and Green, And most series entries allow players to receive only one throughout the game; They also have a 100% catch rate. Like, some players were waiting to correct them. If a Reddit user had chosen to use only that master ball on their list, they might have a new team member, as opposed to a lost opportunity regret. Pokemon fans, the same thing will not happen for you!
