I think that the GSC games gave some shiny starters via event in NYC but I have never had a legit shiny starter. I obtained a shiny emboar through the GTS but I don't count it because it is obviously fake. It has perfect ivs and everything.

Excluding forced shinies, it was a Weedle on SS.

I knew what shinies were in gen III, but I never owned a shiny until Diamond where I got a shiny bellossom from the GTS. I did get some shiny oddishes using the musuda method.

I've had three. First was a Dragonite that I bought from the Game Corner in Pokemon LeafGreen. Second was a Wailmer in Pokemon Ruby. Third (and my favorite) was a Mankey, which I caught in FireRed, and when I tried to get it to Pokemon Platinum, it said I had no game, and my save was deleted. I dont have any of them anymore (I lost all the games on an airplane)

I've had a volley of shiny Zubat in my time, and I think my first one was a Zubat. The earliest I can remember was in Silver inside Slowpoke cave. Interestingly enough, in SoulSilver I also ran into a shiny Zubat within Slowpoke cave. The nostalgia hit me like a train.

That was actually before I had caught the Lake of Rage Gyarados. The Zubat was in my second playthrough, and on the first I had slain the Red Gyarados.

Yes, but I was utterly too impatient. The first shiny Pokémon I encountered was Buizel via Pokéradar in Pearl version.

My first shiny was a Staryu, back in LG. It was the most frequently used Pokemon at that time, because I just caught an odd coloured Pokemon. Levelled it up to 60 in a couple of weeks and traded it to my Ruby. And then I traded it back to LG. But for some odd reason, my LG's save file got corrupted. I was obviously dismayed.

The first shiny I encountered was a shiny Poochyena, in my Emerald version. I didn't expect it at all, and was just training my Pokémon, so it was a very good surprise. Unfortunately, as I was trying to weaken it, it used "Roar"... It was the disillusion. I never saw any other shiny since that moment.

The first and only shiny I have ever encountered was a shiny Geodude in a cave. I caught her and named her Tiara or something lol. It was in Diamond, and I deleted the file long ago.

I didnt try to but i did get one. i got leaf green on the side of the road, and it didnt always work right on my ds. anyway, i played through it a few times, and never ran into a shiny. then my sister erased my file and i was mad. i resarted and chose charmander, and lo and behold, my first shiny! unfortunately my game chose that instant to be retarded and froze on me. never ran into a shiny since, and i have been playing since blue first came out.

Linoone.

But I accidentally OHKO'd it with my Blaziken because at the time I thought shiny Pokemon were stronger than regular Pokemon, etc etc....

Yeah I was hugely embarrassed afterwards. ._.

My first Shiny was a Shiny Raticate for my DS copy. It's the only legit shiny I've gotten. But when I play on a ROM I get shinies quiet often idk why though. I was playing crystal on VBA and I just started it and I found a Shiny Hoppip but I didn't have Pokèballs. Then once I got Pokèballs I was searching for Phanpy and found Shiny Geodude instead lol

The red Gyarados in Pokémon Gold, of course. After that, I encountered a shiny Ryhorn on Victory Road, and I ruthlessly killed it...

Red Gyarados doesn't count for this...obviously hehe

In Pokemon Ruby, during training sessions, I happen to come across a Loudred. Funny to say at the least, when I encounter a Pokemon, I rarely pay attention to the entrance & start to play attention when the battle choices are up. I did randomly catch Loudred, though at the time I don't think I had him caught yet, but never evolved my Whismur either.

After a while I was scouting through my PC, I noticed when I started to use him to train, I came across another Loudred, I noticed mine was a different color! That's when I realize that Shiny Pokemon actually exist. It was just a strange moment pretty much. I did wonder why the stars come out everytime, until I fully understood everything

Shiny Swablu in Sapphire, and I think the next was a Spheal. Pretty awesome, since Altaria was one of my favourite Pokemon at the time.

Ohai Red Gyarados in Gold version. You and your cousin - the Red Gyarados in SoulSilver - have the dual-honour of being the only shiny Pokemon that I've ever seen. I think I might have caught the Gold Red Gyarados, but I can definitely remember making the SoulSilver one faint.

Yes, I've never seen a shiny apart from these two. I'll go hang my head in shame now.

The first shiny that I can remember was a shiny Chimchar in Pokemon White. I was hatching eggs in order to get a good nature for an Infernape and I was caught by surprise when I saw it.
