This has probably been done before but what was your first shiny? What game was it in and say anything else interesting about. The shiny gyarados at lake of rage does not count.

My first shiny was an onix in pokemon silver in rock tunnel. I was actually looking for a kangaskhan. I didnt know about shinies then, i thought that the red gyarados was like a special, only alternate colour pokemon that exists thing. Everything in my team was a ridiculously high level at the time so i ended up throwing about 60 of my ultra balls at it (i had like 400) as i was afraid to try to weaken it.. The thing nearly died from using struggle. Anyway, she is now a shiny steelix and currently resides in my pokemon crystal.

She is the only shiny i have ever found.

Mine is was a Whismur, then a Diglet. That's it for me, but today my friend found a shiny Machoke, so I traded with him and then back and he got a shiny Machamp, not bad.

My first was....red gyrados. just kidding XD. I think my first was gold growlith in my gold version, but i cant remember for sure. Overall ive owned a bunch of shinys...purple wurmple (my first in ruby/sapphire), red zigzagoon, black zubat, lime green tangela, and maybe a few others, cant remember.

The first Shiny I came across was a Hariyama, and guess what!!

... It blew me away with Whirlwind :/

My first Shiny that I actually caught, was Shinx in my first successful Poké Radar chain in Pearl.
After 8 years of playing, it's about darn time! >:O

I remember it because I used my Master Ball on it. xP

I was freaking out cause I'd never seen or heard of shiny Pokemon before, so when I saw that golden Pidgey I knew I HAD to catch it.

I have once found a Tentecruel with green eyes in Silver.
But the game restarted for unknown reason and now the only shiny i have is the Gyarados
Also i remember someone having a blue mew, but he never traded it.
Back then i just wanted 5 pkmn to fill my Dex. now almost 80

I have never ever caught a shiny. I once saw a dhiny oddish in a Sapphire game I borrowed, but I killed it. :( All the shinies I have are trades.

I caught shiny Machop wayyy back in Yellow, but my most recent one was a Machoke.. now i somehow have to try and catch a shiny Machamp in the wild XD!!

Woot to me for it was a charizard. If that doesnt count it has to be the ferocious rayquaza. I never wanted to catch a shiny or do so many soft resets again1

Um, did shinies even exist in R/B/Y? I don't think they did. o_O

Anyway, mine was Totodile. Not really caught, but whatever. I'm too lazy to chain.

I was well lucky when I got mine, story time (For the 100th time XD)
Okay, i always wanted a shiny (especially when my friend got a shiny tailor :()
So I was going to beat the E4 when I saw a Steelix (Normal and this is in D/P)
So I said "Cool, you can catch Steelix's. I thought you had to trade and that was the only ay. So I tried to catch it. I failed :( So I said the next one I found I will catch it, and it was Shiny O.O I named it Goldy. Yay Shiny Steelix :)

Apart from (a) the red Gyarados in G/S/C, and (b) hacked shinies, it was a Goldeen, I believe.

Mine was my shiny piplup. I started out with Turtwig and ended up getting one of the other starters in the game as a shiny! :D

My first shiny was when I was playing Firered, I was in the Viridian Forest and saw a Caterpie that was shiny. I evolved into a Butterfree.

Other than the red Gyarados, I didn't catch any shiny Pokemon during Silver or Crystal.

First one was WAY back in Silver, and Ironically, it was its mascot:

Lugia!

Another reason as to why it's my favorite overall.

A green Pelipper... I thought it was a glitch so I caught it just because.

Same here, really. I caught two and ran from the third. Yes, I did find three.

Um, did shinies even exist in R/B/Y? I don't think they did. o_O

Sort of. They did, but there was no way to know until you transferred them to Gold, Silver, or Crystal, or used them in Pokémon Stadium 2.

In the middle of 2005, I was speeding through Victory Road with a Lv. 100 Charizard from Leaf Green to rush through the E4. I had just completed Channel and was eager to get myself a Jirachi. As I was surfing a shiny Golbat popped up right before my eyes and thankfully I caught it. ^.^

My first shiny was a green taillow in my Emerald version. I freaked out at first, because I didn't know what shinies were then. I decided to catch it anyway.

I found a shiny Roselia at Trophy Garden and i trained her now she's level 63

red gyarados in gold ofcourse! but my first one that wasnt supposed to be caught was a girafarig. my pokemon were weak at the time, I couldn't use fly yet then after it nearly killed my whole party and I was afraid of damaging it, I caught it with a timer ball.

My first shiny was a Meditite I just caught on Dimond which is terrible considering I have been looking for shinys up from the gold version days. I am not consideing Gyrados my first shiny on purpose XP.

My friend made me bring his LeafGreen and GameBoy Advance SP without any reasons at all... o.O
So I played it and after Prof. Oak gave me a PokeDex, I went to Viridian to buy some Pokeballs, and the first grass I stepped on I encountered a Shiny Pidgey level 3. :)

It was the very first time I saw a shiny for real, too bad it wasn't mine, oh well... :)

My first shiny was Elekid in Crystal. I got it from the egg that the Day Care Couple gave me. At first I thought it was a glitch, but I think I hit my Crystal Version or something, because I started a new game, and in the Odd Egg, guess what! There was another Shiny Elekid! I consider that too much to be a coinsidence (sp?). My first Third Gen Shiny was a Wingull, but when I transferred it to Collosseum (sp?) the cable messed up at one point and dropped one variable: The Shiny Variable. My Pelliper (Yes, he evolved) had lost his shininess! And when I traded him back, Peliper still no shiny! Wah... But, I got a shiny Ditto in Pearl, and this time, there was no glitch behind him! :)

June 14th, 2008, 07:51 PM
I probably ran into a bunch of shinys in G/S/C, but probably didn't notice. But my first caught shiny was a Shiny Electrode. I didn't know what it was so I kept chuking ultra balls at it untill I caught it... and that is how I first came here, because I was trying to figure out what was wrong with my game. And then in Victory Road I was trying to train my Pokemon, and I found a Shiny Hariyama, but it whirlwinded me away.

June 15th, 2008, 12:24 AM
My first shiny wuz in my ruby version. It was a shiny tentacool who is now my shiny tentacruel. My other two shinies are also from my ruby version, they are duskull and linoone.

I've never caught a shiny before, but I've received two over the GTS - a Surskit (whut) and a Rhyperior. Though I've since traded the Rhyperior away for an ALAMOS Darkrai.

My first shiny was a Golbat in my Gold version. I caught it without knowing it was shiny and being different from the other Golbats :'P
