Your First Shiny
Who was the first shiny you guys saw/caught in the 3rd gen games? Mine was a Zubat from Leaf Green in Mt Moon.

Tyranitar042 February 12th, 2013 10:13 PM

Golbat in Sapphire I saw it and caught it with my last great ball after it almost knocked out all my pokes... lols and it had a garbage nature. but was a great crobat

Seki February 13th, 2013 2:03 AM

Never had one in the 3rd Gen, my first and only legit random encounter one was in 4th Gen.

Talli February 13th, 2013 2:13 AM

My first and only shiny in 3rd gen was a Shiny Spinda who now is on Black 2

RenegadeClyde February 13th, 2013 8:11 AM

A Shiny Wingull and a Shiny Electrode (That I couldn't catch)

Sirius February 13th, 2013 8:34 AM

Minun and then soon after that a Wurmple that eventually evolved into a Dustox.

I recently replayed Gen 3, and finally met (and caught) my first Gen 3 shiny: a Slowpoke. I'm not doing anything with it yet.

Venitardus February 13th, 2013 11:25 AM

I only encountered one shiny in 3rd gen, my 2nd in 4th gen. i was on one of the sevi islands.. i encountered a Shiny Geodude but ran when i was down to 5 Ultra balls left and 1 Pokeball

WishCookie February 13th, 2013 11:52 AM

My was Pikachu in Leaf Green :)

My first shiny was a Shroomish on Sapphire, which I didn't even realize was shiny. To be quite honest, I don't even remember catching it, but I found it sitting in my first box a few years later before I restarted my game, so I must've caught it right near the beginning. It's now a Breloom that I transferred over to HeartGold.

Ludger February 13th, 2013 7:32 PM

The only shiny I found in gen III was a Whismur, which is my only random shiny I no longer have. I caught it cause I thought it was diseased with its green ears yeah. I have two shinies from trades though, Sunkist the Mightyena and Key Lime the Spinda. Both are on my storage Emerald.

waveguidebuizel February 13th, 2013 8:12 PM

My first shiny ever was actually on my Ruby: a beautiful red Duskull (one of my favorite ghosts). I spent so much time looking at it, wondering if it was the lighting in the room reflecting on my original GBA that made it look sorta reddish (since I missed the shiny stars). :P Of course I had to catch it, and it eventually became a navy-black Dusknoir when I transferred it to Pearl years later. ^-^

Hikamaru February 13th, 2013 8:25 PM

A Duskull in Ruby, which was also my first Shiny in any Pokemon game.

I even recall it being female with a Serious nature!

Ash February 13th, 2013 10:34 PM

A Shiny Mightyena on an Emerald ROM. Which is a little sad considering I played Ruby for a long time a few years ago. Oh well. Maybe one day I will buy an actual copy again and play it and find a shiny then.

vaporeon7 February 14th, 2013 1:19 PM

I have found two shiny Zubat (both in Shoal Cave), a shiny Cacnea and a shiny Metagross against a trainer at the battle tower, as well as a shiny Jolteon in the battle pyramid.

Sonkitts February 14th, 2013 10:17 PM

I've only had one on these games, Poochyena on Emerald. Crystal was the most fruitful for me.

Isseubnida February 18th, 2013 12:31 PM

From my memory, my first shiny was the Golbat I caught in Unknown Cave last year.

BENSJAM February 19th, 2013 8:00 AM

After playing Pokemon off and on over the years i have never come across a wild shiny , but did once trade my first lv 100 (chansey) with a red gyarados diamond.

Future Arceus February 23rd, 2013 1:06 PM

My first was a shiny seedot on sapphire. She was also my first ev trained pokemon ever (on diamond). Later she was stolen by someone on these forums *looks around shiftry-ily*, but she's been cloned several times and is now on Black II.

Nothing Is Real February 23rd, 2013 1:11 PM

Mine was a Pidgey, from one of the first routes I think.

I don't really care for shinies so I restarted that game after I decided I didn't want a team with Bulbasaur and Pidgey (back then I wasn't a big fan of Bulbasaur. Now I prefer them to Charmander).

Sonkitts February 23rd, 2013 11:15 PM

I've ran in to two, and one happened today!

The first was a Poochyena, all golden, pretty cool. The second today was a Nidoran in Fire Red. I was wondering about how annoying it may be to encounter one in the Safari Zone and voila. I caught it though. A blue Nidoran male.

PowerArmor34 February 26th, 2013 9:38 AM

My first shiny was a shiny was a shiny ralts and i was the happiest man alive.

Captain Fabio March 4th, 2013 1:57 AM

My first shiny was Aron. I remember it so well as I had the volume down and was just level grinding early on in the game. I was watching TV and I looked down at the screen and saw an Aron. It was weird because it's eyes were red, but it was female. I thought that it was weird they were red, so I caught it and boom, my first shiny! :D

pokem0nprincess March 4th, 2013 10:49 PM

First encountered and caught a shiny Oddish today in FireRed while training for the Elite Four. First and only 3rd gen shiny, and second shiny total of all random encounters. I think I'll trade her to SoulSilver and evolve her into a Bellossom.

darksoul97 March 6th, 2013 1:33 PM

My first was a Tentacool in FR
