The first shiny I ever came across was a shiny Swablu in Ruby. I wanted it so bad but when I tried to weaken it, my pokemon used a critical move and wiped it out in one shot ><

However, in LeafGreen I found a shiny Venemoth that I caught :>

I still don't have any shinies in gen 3. The only shiny I've ever had is the shiny pichu I hatched in crystal last summer.

Shiny Tangela at Route 21 in FireRed, while I was traveling from Cinnabar Island to Pallet Town after defeating 7th gym. It was actually my first encounter of Pokémon on this route - and it was shiny . I had good Pokémons, and I didn't wanted to risk fainting because of critical hit (I hate critical hits when catching wild Pokémons), so I simply poisoned it, and threw Ultra Balls. The second throw catched it. Too bad it was in ROM version, not on my actual cartridge, but still.

The first Shiny Pokemon I saw was an Oddish. Unfortunately, because I was at the tender age of five at the time, I didn't realise that it was so rare, and so I fainted it, just like I would have any other Pokemon. It was only three years later, when I worked out what the hell Shiny Pokemon were, that I realised what I had done...

My very first shiny on FireRed was a shiny Caterpie caught in Viridian Forest. In leafgreen I did not managed to capture a shiny geodude because I only have 1 pokeball left T_T

While I managed to capture a shiny zubat in Ruby and a shiny tentacool in Emerald.

My first Shiny was a Shiny Regirock, I was in so much shock, and was able to capture it.
This was in Pokemon Emerald by the way.

My first ever true shiny that I didn't hack, receive from storyline or otherwise even look for occurred in Generation 3. It was a Shiny Spinda in Emerald, and I named her "Emerald" :3

My first shiny was on my Sapphire game. It was an awesome looking Electrike, at first I was like wait he's not blue? Lol I then realized what had happened and was ecstatic

RNG, the skill for the well informed

I think it was my Spinda in Sapphire Version. That or Oddish, I'm not sure. I caught like over half a dozen shinies in Gen III though so it was a lucky gen for me :p

Never caught a shiny. Only seen one ever, which was on my friends Fire Red. A shiny marrowak. He actually made me believe you had to have played more than 400 hours. I passed the 450 hours played on Leaf Green without ever seeing a shiny.


There was once a time I saw a shiny in my own game. I had started a new Leaf Green save game for teh lulz (without saving ofc), got to the point where you meet the old man who teaches you how to catch a pokémon and I kid you not, the weedle was a shiny weedle... Or at least it seemed shiny o_o
