I don't think I have ever encountered a shiny in GSC besides the obvious Gyarados. Honestly I can probably count with one hand how many shinies I have encountered in all of my pokemon games.

Nope. Gyarados wouldn't count either.

The second Pokemon I ever encountered in Silver was a shiny Hoothoot. This was during the very beginning of the game when you don't have access to Pokeballs yet, so it killed me inside when I was forced to defeat it.
I think that was the only shiny I've encountered in Johto.

I have encountered both a shiny Stantler (Gold) and a Snubble (Crystal), however, those two times were both on emulators...

Yes I did, a shiny pidgey, which corrupted my game. Then a shiny Geodude, now a Graveler, still on my crystal game. And a Tentacool on my hack of Pokemon crystal, while playing on an emulator.

Apart from Red Gyarados, I only encountered a Shiny once. I don't remember exactly which Pokémon it was, but it was south of Ecruteak City, but I didn't catch it, partly because I didn't really know what the "clickclickclickclickclick" sound was all about, and I didn't notice an all-that-different coloration either.

I got a Shiny Ditto in Pokemon Crystal (not from the Red Gyarados transfer to RBY glitch). Anyways, I named it Shiny and I use it from breeding now.

Besides Red Gyarados? Nope.
I've never been lucky when it comes to random shinies, but I have had friends lucky enough to find them. I remember using a cloning glitch to clone a friend's shiny Pichu.

Only Gyarados. Nobody else. Not even met one. So sad. (Once got Pokérus, though)

Yes I found a shiny Hoothoot on gold on the route where there is the daycare center. I was completely amazed to see that shiny although I didn't used it because it is such a weak pokemon. And besides that, there is always the red Gyarados.

Just recently I found a shiny Parasect in Mt. Silver, the first shiny that I ever encountered (and I've been playing this game ever since it came out).

YES! My very first shiny was found in Crystal! It was a shiny Wooper!
I remember finding it and being really weirded out by it, I had thought it was a glitch but I caught it anyways. I was like "Oh It's... PINK. A PINK WOOPER"

I found most of my shinies on Pokemon Emerald however. I had encountered at least 3 or 4.

I encountered my first shiny ever in my Silver Version. It was a Hoot-Hoot, but unfortunately, I defeated it D: I always remembered that. I haven't seen any since :/ (Legit anyway).

I've never encountered a Shiny and I didn't even know they existed until a couple of years ago when I stumbled on the Bulbapedia page.

The only shiny I have ever encountered in my 244 hour reign of Pokemon Crystal is the Lake of Rage Gyrados.
I think that the world just hates me.
