I recently replayed Gen 3, and finally met (and caught) my first Gen 3 shiny: a Slowpoke. I'm not doing anything with it yet.

My first shiny was a Shroomish on Sapphire, which I didn't even realize was shiny. To be quite honest, I don't even remember catching it, but I found it sitting in my first box a few years later before I restarted my game, so I must've caught it right near the beginning. It's now a Breloom that I transferred over to HeartGold.

The only shiny I found in gen III was a Whismur, which is my only random shiny I no longer have. I caught it cause I thought it was diseased with its green ears yeah. I have two shinies from trades though, Sunkist the Mightyena and Key Lime the Spinda. Both are on my storage Emerald.
Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be

My first shiny ever was actually on my Ruby: a beautiful red Duskull (one of my favorite ghosts). I spent so much time looking at it, wondering if it was the lighting in the room reflecting on my original GBA that made it look sorta reddish (since I missed the shiny stars). Of course I had to catch it, and it eventually became a navy-black Dusknoir when I transferred it to Pearl years later. ^-^

A Duskull in Ruby, which was also my first Shiny in any Pokemon game.

I even recall it being female with a Serious nature!

A Shiny Mightyena on an Emerald ROM. Which is a little sad considering I played Ruby for a long time a few years ago. Oh well. Maybe one day I will buy an actual copy again and play it and find a shiny then.

I have found two shiny Zubat (both in Shoal Cave), a shiny Cacnea and a shiny Metagross against a trainer at the battle tower, as well as a shiny Jolteon in the battle pyramid.

I've only had one on these games, Poochyena on Emerald. Crystal was the most fruitful for me.

Mine was a Pidgey, from one of the first routes I think.

I don't really care for shinies so I restarted that game after I decided I didn't want a team with Bulbasaur and Pidgey (back then I wasn't a big fan of Bulbasaur. Now I prefer them to Charmander).

You're correct

I've ran in to two, and one happened today!

The first was a Poochyena, all golden, pretty cool. The second today was a Nidoran in Fire Red. I was wondering about how annoying it may be to encounter one in the Safari Zone and voila. I caught it though. A blue Nidoran male.

My first shiny was Aron. I remember it so well as I had the volume down and was just level grinding early on in the game. I was watching TV and I looked down at the screen and saw an Aron. It was weird because it's eyes were red, but it was female. I thought that it was weird they were red, so I caught it and boom, my first shiny! :D

First encountered and caught a shiny Oddish today in FireRed while training for the Elite Four. First and only 3rd gen shiny, and second shiny total of all random encounters. I think I'll trade her to SoulSilver and evolve her into a Bellossom.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)
