Unfortunately I've had no luck in scoring myself any shiny pokemon in HGSS. Although I caught myself a cute little swinub on the original gold. Other than that, I don't think I've come across any other shiny pokemon across my other games. I've got a shiny Tyranitar in Pokemon White, but I recieved that through trade. (Which I'm sure doesn't count.) I really wish I would find a shiny Pokemon in HGSS, since it's one of my fav games -- but I supppose it depends on luck and then the determining factor how much you play the game; which for me isn't a lot anymore. :x

I have been playing for 5 years, never to even encounter a shiny. I must be unlucky, because im sure i have encountered more than 1800 wild pokemon easily.

Don't bump threads over a month old since the last post, please.

That said, I'll leave it open as it's a topic that usually gets a lot of posts anyway.

I've caught a shiny SUNKURN, (evolved into a SUNFLORA), shiny VULPIX, shiny GRAVELER and of course the scripted shiny GYARADOS.

It's funny that I decided to stop playing any emulators until I got a shiny on a REAL POKeMON game for the DS and before that, between various emulators and previous games I had never caught a shiny until I bought SoulSilver.

And I'm always proud to mention I found my shiny SUNKURN long before I got to the scripted GYARADOS.

Furthermore, when I encountered my shiny SUNKURN I was, at first, skeptical; (the alternate color palette isn't much different for a non shiny SUNKURN) so I made sure I saw the red star (even after seeing the signature shiny sparkles upon the beginning of the battle), then I went on google and made sure the red star meant shiny.

I caught a shiny Onix in my SoulSilver version. Other than that, I don't think I've caught a shiny Pokémon before. I'm somewhat sure that I encountered a shiny Pokémon in Yellow before, but I didn't know what it was at the time, and it was a Pokémon that I didn't really want, so I let it get away. Oh well...

Well, my first shiny was a Golduck but, it was in Pokemon Black. (Caught it btw. Named her Gummy. xD)
In Soul Silver my first shiny was a male Ponyta I caught and named Meteorite <3
Those are the only shinys I've ever encountered out of all the pokemon games I played.

In my SoulSilver, aside from Red Gyarados I have caught two Shinies - a Graveler and Farfetch'd. Both are male.

In all my years of playing pokemon, I am yet to encounter a shiny. Go figure. I could probably RNG one, but it's not worth it.

I have never seen or caught a shiny, other than the red gyarados, which is unfair because. my older brother has caught over 10 shinys in the course of one day. Shinys never come when you're looking for them.

I've had my fair share of shinys. I've had a shiny ditto, whismur (now an ev'd Exploud), Caterpie, and giratina. I found a shiny weezing and now i regret not using the masterball but it used self destruct >.<

I saw a Red Gyarados in SoulSilver. I think it was at the Lake of Rage... Made it faint too!

That is all.

As a shiny hunter, I feel obligated to say that I've found loads of shinies. Not true. I've found 2 Cyndaquil (one in Soul Silver, now a Typhlosion), one in Heart Gold (now a Quilava). In Silver, I found a shiny Totodile without even hunting it. I was just 5 and thought something was wrong with the game. I have the red Gyarados. Then on Emerald, I found a shiny Lotad while looking for a Ralts. In Ruby I found a shiny Zigzagoon, but I was on my way to beat May the first time, so I couldn't catch it. I have a shiny Charmander that took 6-7 hours of soft resetting on my Fire Red. I'm currently hunting Lugia on SS right now. Day 6 of that hunt.

Nice story! Good luck catching shiny Lugia! That would be awesome!

The only shiny I've gotten in HGSS other than the obligatory red Gyarados was a shiny Ekans in SoulSilver. I was just minding my business, grinding before going to the Azalea gym and BAM. There it was. I named her Pants and traded her to HeartGold to use there, because I was doing a challenge on SS at the time and Ekans wouldn't fit into it. She's an Arbok now and almost level 60, I think. I need to start RNGing in HGSS though. I find RNG more fun than shiny hunting, and it's a lot less tedious. Plus you get results you want, not like...shiny adamant Abra. Ruh roh.

I've only found one, a shiny Meowth on that route west of Ecruteak. And this was after I had caught the Meowth I wanted for my team and I was just leveling it up on that route... it just showed up out of the blue and I asked myself, "How lucky can I get?"

I've still kept it untouched since It really doesn't have a good nature conducive to battling, so I just keep it as a trophy of sorts.

Let's just say that shiny pokemon are all but easy to find =) In my career i had the privilege to own a red gyarados, a pink crobat (something horrible) and i saw a white/green pelipper from a friend of mine. My cousin has a golden scizor! (that's pretty cool). You were very lucky to have a shiny starter!

Being yet another shiny hunter, i suppose you could assume i have a collection, but that isn't the case. I have a Shiny Ho-oh i soft resetted the other day, but on the same profile i found legitimate Pokerus, which has the ever so dandy odds of 3/65,536 on wild/bred pokemon.

I sure wish I could find some shinies, especially shiny linoone. But I don't wish too much for them, cause some of em look kinda stupid. I do actually have 4 shinies, red gyrados from the lake of rage, and shiny raikou, entei, and suicune from GameStop events. I nearly missed one of the events because I got there as they were locking up on the last day! I did have the pokerus once but I didn't know what it was and I didn't know what to do with it. D:

Only encountered one random shiny, and that was a Voltorb :D which was lucky, 'cause that happens to be one of my favourite shiny Pokémon! Other than that, nothing. Apart from the red Gyarados, but that doesn't count.

The last time I saw a non-Gyarados shiny was in Gen 3, never have I caught or bred one of my own in Gen 4.
