What's RNGing? Never heard of it.
RNG abuse can be used to get flawless shiny Pokemon, which is what I use it for. Though there is discussion on whether or not it is legit. It manipulates the game, however it doesn't use an external device like an Action Replay. It's more commonly seen as legit, including here at PC so trading RNG'd Pokemon is perfectly fine.

This thread might explain better than I can. It's actually pretty fun to do when you get the hang of it. But I digress.

Only one, and it was a Tentacruel, in Pokemon Diamond I think it was. So pretty much out of 9 years or so of Playing Pokemon, I only caught one Shiny. Though when I saw it, I kind of jumped!

I might have seen other shiny Pokemon in the past when I was younger, but never knew it was anything special, or I might have not been paying much attention and just trying to get through the grass.

Two Geodudes, a Magikarp (Why do I always get terrible ones)
A couple weeks after the Winona episode of Pokemon Advanced Battle aired I almost caught a shiny Taillow. It was amazing. I was all like "OMG NO WAY, It's winona's shiny taillow!!!" And then my Manectric killed it with Shock Wave.....I have never used Manectric since.

Gyarados (hasn't everyone?), Unown, Rattata, and Chansey. Other than Gyarados on SoulSilver, the other 3 came from Diamond.

Though, I used a trick with Red and Silver to get a Shiny Ditto way back when, but I guess that's cheating.

Just a Swinub in HeartGold. What's great is that I was actually looking for one to add to my team, then the first one I encountered in the Ice Path happened to be shiny.

Well I've chained quite a lot so I've gotten quite a bit the legit way. I don't know how to hack and i'm too lazy to learn so it's easier for me to chain in platinum. My happiest day was when I got my first shiny eevee. I wanted to Turn-it into an espeon and I did. (just had to get my username in there :D)

I ended up getting a Shiny eevee once, I think from that one house in Hearthome. I've seen a few shinies in previous gens but don't recall catching any of them. I was really happy about the eevee at the time too because I wanted a shiny umbreon and/or espeon.

Years back in Emerald was when I first saw a shiny espeon while I was taking that trainer hill challenge or whatever above Mauville, was a few floors away from the end and this one trainer had one; made me mad that that was how I stumbled upon one, haha.
Don't you think Hoenn deserves to be at least this beautiful?

First shiny was in Gold, which was an Unown.

The last shiny I caught was in Sapphire. It was a Psyduck. I kept it as a Psyduck because it stays blue as a Golduck. I migrated him to my Diamond and then to my Black.

Black = 3310-4621-6704
Diamond = 1292-3359-4411

As far as I can remember, I've only captured one shiny Pokémon: Geodude. I was filming a video on how to capture a Hippopotas in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, and somehow managed to run into it on film. In anticipation of uploading the video to YouTube, I accidentally forgot to save my game. Haven't seen a shiny since...

Im assuming this is general talk about shinies. Well my random shinies have been an Oddish in Sapphire version( lucky catch too, I had one Pokeball), a Lillipup in my Japanese Black version and an Audino in my English White. Ive soft resetted for many shinies after deciding they were pretty awesome and started actively seeking them out. Some of the shinies Ive gotten are Cyndaquil, Lugia, Ho-oh, The Sinnoh lake trio, Treecko, and Lapras. Ive also chained a few, like Magnemite, Togepi, Shinx, Sentret, Spoink, and Cubone, though I have trouble with that method usually.

The only shiny Pokemon I have ever captured was a female shiny Meditite! I was playing Pokemon Platinum one day and I captured it after lowering it HP to only 2 HP points! I named it Shine (horrible name I know XD)

Volcarona FTW! Oh and Larvesta, he is cool too.......
