Outside the red Gyarados, the first shiny that I ever encountered was a Shiny Teddiursa on Gold. I knew what shinies were at that point thanks to that Gyarados, but I ended up one-hit KOing the Teddiursa with my weakest Pokemon, so I couldn't catch it.

The first shiny that I actually caught, though, was a shiny Shroomish in Sapphire. To be honest, I never even realized I caught one years later until I was going through all my boxes, and noticed that it had a shiny sprite. Wish I had a more exciting story than that for catching my first, but I really don't.

My first shiny was a Zubat in Leaf Green. I had no idea what it was, but I figured the sparkly must mean something, so I caught it, then only later found out what a "shiny" was.

I've always had good luck with shinies. I don't hunt them, but I do spend a lot of time in the games, since I use a lot of different pokemon in the course of a single playthrough, so I have to grind a fair amount. So I generally run into at least one per playthrough.

Currently playing Heart Gold and I've found two so far - a Rattata on Route 32 and a Metapod in the Bug Catching Contest at National Park (and it won the contest too - I don't know if shiny counts for extra points or not).

My first shiny was a Quagsire in the Pastoria Great Marsh. I did catch it. Most traumatic experience of my life. Over a pink fat salamander.

My first shiny encounter was a yellow Onix in Pokémon FireRed. I found this Pokémon when I was heading to Lavender Town through the Rock Tunnel. Unfortunately, I was unable to catch this Pokémon. I didn't have any Poké Balls with me at the time. I was very upset with myself. D:

My first shiny was a little golden Swablu. I showed my best friend and she thought it was super cute, so I traded it with her. I came to regret that later. xD

If memory serves me right, my first shiny was a shiny Roselia in Diamond. I think I caught it as well, as I was super happy.

I was playing Pokemon Pearl, and I just used surf and surfed a small distance almost reaching land, and ran into a shiny Golduck, and this is after years of playing Pokemon. I was stoked, but all my pokemon were like lvl 70.. And I tried spamming balls but it didn't work.. So I took a chance to hurt it with my weakest move.. And I killed it.. I quickly turned off my game and tried to find it again.. But I never did.. ;(

My second experience was in Emerald, I was in a cave and found a shiny Zubat, and I was like 'Well... It is a shiny..'.

My third and last experience was recently-ish when I was playing Saphire.. And I found a shiny Electrode.. That was the most intense experience ever... I mean, any moment he could of self destructed and killed my Pokemon.. (Plus they're hard enough to find in the wild and I didn't wanna have to get him with the evolution way).

But I caught him! ^.^

My first shiny was a shiny Solrock in Emerald. I caught it and raised it to lvl.100, then restarted the game years later. I didn't really know it was a shiny, but I knew it was special because it's color was different, so I caught it anyways.

I haven't gotten a shiny since a couple of days ago, since I soft-reset my HeartGold dozens upon dozens of times to receive a shiny Cyndaquil.

The first shiny I encountered was Sableye in Sapphire, but I ran from it. The first one I actually caught was Koffing in Emerald.

Right now I'm going through White, Platinum, and HeartGold with the "all wild Pokemon are shiny" AR code activated because I've been playing Pokemon for thirteen years or so now and don't view my AR runs in my emulator as 'unfair', merely 'having fun', so I'm seeing a lot of shinies at the moment, haha.

However, my first legitimate shiny encounter was, I believe, with a shiny Zubat in Rock Tunnel. Didn't know what it was and I have the vague memory of defeating it. I was probably about eight and the oldest of my four siblings so no one was there to tell me what it was. I ran into a shiny Koffing around the time I got Ruby, that was right next to Lavaridge Town in the Fiery Path. Caught it, but still didn't know what it was or how rare it was. Found out what it was through Google but failed to understand how rare it was and eventually started a new game, so the Koffing's gone forever.


The last shiny I encountered is absolutely maddening. It happened about two and a half years ago and it was in the Battle Pyramid. A wild Shiny Ludicolo. I wasn't using cheats at the moment so I had no way to catch it. I just stared at it for a while hating my life, haha. It pained me to dispose of it.

I've only encountered one shiny up to now and that was a level 10 meowth. Unfortunately I had no pokeballs with me so I couldn't catch it. That was years ago and I have yet to see another one.

I'm.. pretty sure I got a shiny or two in Crystal from that special egg, but I don't really remember nor want to count that since the chances of it hatching shiny is like 50%. xD; So my first real shiny was Whismur in Sapphire! :3 Sadly I don't have her anymore since I was an idiot and restarted my game.

Shiny Lotad in Pokemon Sapphire. Since then I have expanded... I'm fairly lucky when it comes to shinies. My grey Charizard and gold Steelix are still staples in my teams. Also have a gold Pidgeot, black and gold Luxray, grey and gold Metagross (favourite shiny) and green Skarmory my sister has only ever found a brown Starly... lolz bad luck.

EDIT: I have had others traded to me but these are my wild ones
