What was the first shiny you ever encountered? Did you even know what a shiny was? Did you catch it, did it faint, or were you out of pokeballs. Mine was a sunkern in the Hoenn safari zone. Caught it with my last ball. I bragged for two days.

*Lake of Rage Gyarados does not count. It likely was everybody's "First" shiny.

A shiny sneasel is really awesome. They are rare in their normal form!

The first shiny I saw was Sableye in Sapphire, but I ran from it. The first shiny I caught, however, was Koffing in Emerald. Since then, I always catch shinies as soon as I see them.

After I encountered my sunkern I thought I would never see another shiny and years later(just a few weeks ago) I found a shiny Nidoran female. I did not realize it though until after i caught it.

My first Shiny encountered was a Duskull in my Ruby Version.



Caught her and she's now resting in my PC. She's female with a Serious nature.

never caught a shiny, but I did see a shiny Starly on Route 201 right before I got my Pokéballs.

I've never seen a shiny since or after.

ughhhhhhhh

The first shiny that I ever encountered was a Teddiursa back on Gold. I only had high-leveled Pokemon with me at the time, and I ended up KOing it even with a weak move.

The first I caught, though, was a Shiny Shroomish on Sapphire. I don't even remember finding it, but a few years later when I was checking my boxes before I restarted my game, I found it sitting there. I ended up trading it to my Fire Red, and then transferring it to Heart Gold where it still is today!

You should evolve it. Breloom is one of the best pokemon out there!

Forgot to mention that I already did, haha :D. I would use it more, but I've been waiting until I finish up with Pokemon White, and then I'll transfer it over again and train it there.

A Raticate in one of the Gen II games on Route 38, and a Pidgey on one of the early routes in FireRed. That's it so far though.

Unfortunately I've never been able to put either of them to significant use. My Silver's battery died and Gold and Crystal I've started new games on numerous times, and Gold's battery also died about a year ago. FireRed I started a new game on because I wasn't happy with Bulbasaur at the time and him and Pidgey were my only Pokemon. I love Venusaur now, though.

My first was a green Machop in Emerald, I was shocked but I caught it. It was a girl so I caught a boy and used that instead. And then in the same play-through I caught a Green Zubat. I have since started over. The only shiny I have now is a shiny Magikarp I found in the Lake of Rage, I also have the red Gyarados from the Lake of Rage, but I was so pissed to find a golden Magikarp right before I caught Gyarados. Now I'm refraining from evolving it because then people think it's hacked or something

Actually, forgot to mention that the shiny Ponyta ran away from me about 3 times, but I managed to keep encountering it!
That was cool.. I still regret trading the dang thing for a dumb Sceptile..

Yeah, I still remember this like it was yesterday. A green Tentacool - had no idea what a shiny is. So I thought it was a glitch of some sort and ran away from it...

A shiny Goldeen just outside in Mt. Mortar in Silver. I'm not sure I was aware of shiny Pokemon, but I knew that Goldeen had something special about it. Since most people in this thread caught their first shiny in Gen. III or later, then I guess I was lucky.

I can't remember if I found one when I played Gold because it was long ago, but I remember my first shiny in Ruby, and it was a Magnemite found in New Mauville.

I still haven't caught a shiny yet but I did see a Shiny Latios after finishing emerald. Too bad I had already used my master ball. Is finding a Shiny merely chance or is there something special to do to find them?

Per chance. There is a 1/8192 chance that a wild Pokemon will be shiny. But it's not completely random, as there is no method of creating a real random number generator. This can be exploited to find shiny Pokemon, but their legitimacy is highly debated.
