Once upon a time there was a shiny Pikachu. It was living an innocent life in Viridian Forest. However, one day it was hunting Caterpie when a trainer appeared.
The trainer was clearly a madman. "AT LAST, I WILL MAKE ASH LOOK LIKE A LOSER!" the trainer exclaimed. He started viciously chucking pokeballs at poor Pikachu. When will this hell end? the Pikachu thought. Eventually it went, "Screw it," and let itself be caught.
"YES!" the trainer yelled, "Ash's Pikachu is a loser compared to mine!"
Then the shiny Pichu event came and the trainer shot himself, freeing poor Pikachu.
