I was walking through Eterna Forest after unsuccesfully hunting Heracross when I stumbled upon a Wurmple. Now, normally I would have killed it and continued on my merry way, but I just had a gut feeling that I needed to catch this Wurmple. It was slightly difficult seeing as I only had Pokemon who would have one-hit it had I dealt damage, but after the second Pokeball it succumbed. So, I headed back to meh PC to get a closer look at it, and sure enough, it was shiny. Like, all purple-ey n' stuff. And it was TIMID!!! So now I have a Speed and Special Attack EV'd male Shiny Beautifly.

Little bit of sarcasm in there, for those who didn't catch on. I suggest you go smother yourself in celophane.

Just kidding.

Or am I.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

Mine was a Meowth that is now a Persian. (Technically, the first I saw was a Golbat on Sapphire, but I thought it was a glitch in my game. (I had no damn Poké Balls left, either. ) My cousin and I called it the "Mutant Golbat" until we found out what shinies were. ;_; Then , we got mad at each other, saying it was the other's fault. XD)

At least you guys could catch your first shiny!
My first shiny happened to be the second Pokemon I found on Ruby Version.
The first being Poochyena who attacks the Prof. Then when I was sent to find my rival for the first time, I stumbled across a reddish Zigzagoon. I quickly ran to the computer to check if it was shiny and it was!
Too bad you couldn't have Pokeballs at that stage of the game...
I had to run away from my first shiny...

Mine was a Tentacruel. Well, it wasn't mine at first. My brother caught it in his Emerald game and migrated it into my Pearl game.

The first shiny, appart from the red gyrados from GSC, I caught was a bibarel. Of all the pokemon. xD I've also missed: A Shiny Geodude and a shiny onix. Because my smelly Magmortar thought it was fun to critical hit them. xD O' well.

My first was a tentacool in Ruby, which I was able to catch. The funny thing is, I got my second and third shining pokemon on the same day. A duskull and a linoone ^_^ . I don't go hunting for shinings on purpose, I just wait for them to appear. (and I'm terrible at chaining xD)

I've seen a shiny Cubone in Crystal and a shiny X Unown in Fire Red.
Both were blue, neither was caught.

Well I do look back now and I think I had a few shinies on Gold, but I can't fully remeber. Also my first real shiney that I had was the baby form of Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan and I didn't knew it was because I breed it. Anyway, I restarted the game for my brother and then later found out that it was infact a shiney. The first shiney I saw and knew it was a shiney was a Ponyta in Pearl, but I accidently hit "run" and I didn't caught it. Now the first shiney that I caught was a Whismur in Emerald.

i remember the first shiny i caught on G/S/C, a Donphan.Didnt even know it was shiny until I asked my older brother and he pointed it out to me.I also remember having a shiny Aipom, though i totally forgot where from.Also, by an incredible stroke of luck, I was checking back on one of the trees i had smeared honey on, and voila, a shiny Aipom. I put it down quite a bit, and threw my only pokeball at it.It shook 3 times, stayed still a little, then...popped right back out of the pokeball.Nearly destroyed my whole DS, i was that annoyed.
