Moved this into Pokémon Gaming Central, since it relates to the games rather then in general.

Moved.

Unofficially, a shiny Lugia that I got from a trade. (I know it's hacked but didn't care...)

Officially however it was a Starly in Pearl.

shiny gyarados on gold lol
excluding that one, a ghastly on heartgold.

i did find a couple more during my 3rd gen runs but said runs were done on an emulator (couldn't afford to buy the console AND the games at the time, unfortunately) so those ones don't really count seeing as i was constantly playing at around 300% speed, which means i probably wouldn't have found a single one on the real games.

A Pawniard. I've been playing Pokemon since second grade, yet most of the shinies I didn't receive from trades ended up being from Pokemon Black (and Black 2).

The worst part? After I caught it on my DSi, I left in on the table to go to the bathroom, and I forgot to save. Next thing you know, my brother is using the camera.

Worst. Day. Ever.

I've never actually seen a shiny but a friend of mine caught a Goldeen.
We was playing Heartgold and Soulsilver together.

First shiny was back in Silver, with a sneasel. I didn't even know how special shiny Pokemon were till the 4th gen, cause without a GBC, only the sparkles made a difference. I mean sure I had a GBA, but I rarely played silver on there cause of how badly the cartridge was sticking out of it.

The first shiny I saw (and caught) was a shiny Graveler that I found using the PokéRadar in Pokémon Diamond. xD

Caught a shiny Paras in Silver a couple years ago, after having played the game for 10 years. Dropped my Fire monotype run to fit it into my party.

First shiny I caught was a whismur in Pokemon Sapphire. I remember being completely new to the games and thinking I got this much better version of whismur when it was just a different colored version of it.

First shiny I saw was the Red Gyarados in Gold. Considering that doesn't count, the first shiny I officially caught was a Sableye in Pokemon Emerald. I was waiting for my neighbour to come and battle with me one day as we were doing a Pokemon Emerald playthrough together. He had me waiting forever so I decided to do a little training in that cave in Dewford. And walluh! I found and caught myself my very own Sableye. I named him... shiny ._.
