The Shiny Pidgey copypasta is a story believed to have originated on 4Chan’s /v/ in which the user claims to have caught a shiny pidgey from pokemon. But the user’s girlfreind comes in crying that her cat died, when she sees the user ignoring her she knocks his gameboy out of his hands, breaking it. The user then punch her and she runs out crying. The user then asks whomever is hearing or reading the story “What am i supposed to do?”

Specifics within the copypasta have changed from one instance to the next.

The Copypasta

Hey /b/, I have a very serious problem. I’m fucking crying because of how stupid I am.

Okay, so my girlfriend was supposed to come over to my house today because I was going to go take her to a movie. She lives about 20 minutes away, and the movie we were supposed to see started at 4:15, which was in about 40 minutes. I figured “cool, I’ll just play Pokemon while I wait”.

So I’m playing Pokemon, and having a pretty damn good time. Anyway, she finally does show up, except she’s crying as she walks into my room. Instead of doing the right thing by comforting her, I half-focus on my game and her. She starts telling me her cat died, and just as she was getting into it, I get into a random encounter in my game.

A shiny pidgey. Holy shit. (For those of you who don’t know/care, shiny Pokemon have less than a 1/1,000 chance of appearing; 1/8192 to be exact.). I stare into my screen in amazement, yelling “holy shit, YES”, interrupting her mid-story. She sobs more, and she starts to yell “You don’t even fucking care! YOU JUST WANT TO PLAY YOUR FUCKING GAME!” I’m still looking at my screen, still focusing on catching my shiny Pidgey, when she walks over, and tosses the game against the wall. I run over and pick up my DS hoping that nothing has changed on screen, and quickly noticed that she broke it. My system and my shiny Pidgey, gone forever.

I start screaming every obscenity I know, and started flailing my arms around. I didn’t know she was behind me, and apparently I backhanded her in the face while I was being a dumbass and swinging my fists around. She yells out “FUCK YOU”, and runs out of my house in tears.

What have I done? I’ve fucked up so badly, and I need to know how to approach her. I don’t want a game of Pokemon to be responsible for ruining my best relationship ever. Help me, /b/.


  • “Howard” trolls Girl Talk with the Shiney Pidgey


The setup and execution of “Shiney Pidgey” seems to follow a basic “say something absurd, laugh at those who think you’re serious” formula. It’s basic copypasta lulz trolling.
