Kid Catches a Rare Shiny Pokemon After 25,968 Attempts [Video]

In what is quite possibly the happiest outburst ever spurred by a video game, or at least in the top 10, a gamer caught a shiny Pokémon, which is an extremely rare type of Pokémon that is exactly the same as a non-shiny one, except it is a different color and has a sparkling sound effect and glittery animation when summoned.

After 230 days and 25,968 encounters, YouTube user Abenzio499 caught a shiny version of a Ponyta Pokémon, prompting the hilarious outburst, though after almost eight months of trying, I can’t say I wouldn’t flip out either.
