My first and second shinies were both on my first Ruby game. I remember they were a shiny Zubat and a shiny Duskull, and they were pretty awesome! Unfortunately, my file got corrupted and I lost them, so that's not as cool.

My first (and so far only) shiny is a Krookodile, evolved from a Sandile. It was found by pure chance- I wandered into Route 4 to catch myself a Darumaka in my White 2, and my first encounter was the shiny Sandile. I was running around the house screaming in joy afterwards.
For those who can't construe a dry witticism, a striking montage or an insightful quote to place on their signatures, copy this into it. Now I can rest, knowing I have brethren suffering from a similar dilemma.

My first seen and first caught was a Zubat in Leaf Green. I looked it up online (I'd never even caught a Zubat before) and found out that, if it was happy enough, it evolved into this thing called Crobat that had good stats and could learn Fly, so I kept it in my party. I didn't like Golbat much (and still don't) so I was just looking forward to it evolving that much more.

I bet I watched that Golbat start to evolve, then stop, half a dozen times. I tried everything I could think of, but it just wouldn't evolve. I finally gave up and put it in a box.

It wasn't until after I beat the E4 and got the National Dex, and figured out that that meant that a whole bunch of pokemon that hadn't been available before were now, that I had some idea of what the problem was. So I got the Golbat out of the PC and gave it a Rare Candy, and presto - a shiny Crobat. Finally. I used it from then on and was very impressed, and have gone out of my way to catch a good Zubat and evolve it into a Crobat in every game they've been in since.

That particular one currently lives in my Emerald, along with all my other 3rd gen shinies. And I actually caught another shiny Zubat in Diamond, but even though it's got awesome stats, I haven't used it, just because I really prefer shiny Zubat over shiny Crobat.

Umm, Whismur in Sapphire, I think. Don't remember if I got a shiny in G/S/C (and if I did, it was probably from that egg you get from Daycare that has increased chance of being shiny) so I'm leaning towards that! Not the best Pokemon in the world but it's still not bad~

My first shiny - and caught - was a Golduck in Black. I went into battle, and BAM! There it was. I'm lucky I realized it was shiny and caught it...*sighs*...however, I think I may have traded it, or maybe Misty got jealous and stole it. I forgot.

The only random shiny I've ever seen was way back in silver version, before I even made it to the lake of rage. It was a mareep, I wasn't really paying attention, just grinding, then I saw it right before it fainted and was like: WTF? It's pink! I didn't realize shinys even existed untill I made it to the red gyrados, I thought my game had glitched or something lol. Actually, now that I think about it, I was using an AR with HG to fill my pokedex with a wild encounter code and when I got to hoothoot it was shiny @_@

I find this odd because the first one I saw was a shiny Elecktrike in Ruby... Haha what an awesome coincidence! ^-^ I caught it naturally!

Mine was a Dewgong in SoulSilver, but really it's almost impossible to tell the difference between a normal Dewgong and a shiny one.

My first was a Tentacool on Crystal. I didn't know what it was, it barely looked different. I only noticed it sparkled, I thought maybe I just hadn't noticed it made a move. I was about 7, so I don't judge myself for running away from it. It was just another ugly jellyfish to me.

Then, when I got nostalgic and wanted to play RSE, I used an online emulator thing. Found a shiny Poochyena. I like shiny Mightyena, so it was cool. I caught it! First one caught. It just wasn't like I could save the game or anything so, you know. Does that even count?

Technically, I haven't even caught one on a real game I guess.
