These shinies all sound pretty awesome. I don't have a large history with Shinies ( only four, including the Gyarados ) So for, it was Vulpix, then I got a shiny starter ( Charmander & female, nicknamed her Maleficient ), Shroomish in Emerald.
Best news of all, I ran into a shiny... in the DreamWorld, on my White. I was screaming happily well internall, considering I was in class. Afterwards was lunch, so it was a different story. It was a Ponyta.
I seem to only get fire types as shinies, haha.
