Caught a shiny Yamash in a quick ball, named her Cleopatra. Also got a salamence in the GTS, and a Scyther that I found in Platinum was later transferred.
If I were to have a "Dream team," this would be it.

No, unfortunately not in BW2. While I was training in BW though, I did find a shiny zigzagoon, but I killed it.

In Diamond, I hatched a shiny squirtle. I was so happy, I don't know why in the world I traded it!

The only shinies I've found was a shiny Feebas, which I was hugely stoked about, that I transferred to my BW team later on (totally forgot which game I had found it in .3.").

The other one I've found was a shiny Meinshao, which I killed with one hit, thanks to my glorious Chandelure...Wasn't that glorious of a moment.

Very excited to say that I got my first RE shiny yesterday on Black 2! It was a lv 55 Audino, and it pretty much snuck up on me since I didn't have the sound on and I wasn't looking at the screen when it appeared. Luckily had my Watchog in my party and it didn't use Double-edge, so I was able to catch it easily. I'm so glad to have caught my own shiny, but I'm not sure how I'm going to use him yet.

Just today, I obtained a Shiny Altaria via the GTS. Altaria is beautiful when it's shiny. And it's one of my favorite Dragon-types too. All it cost was one Ninetales. Or was it Rhyperior...? I like trading away pokemon I get on the GTS for better ones, but Altaria is a keeper.

nothing in black 2, but I recently bought white and not only caught pokerus off some wild pokemon but found a shiny karrablast. evolved it into escavalier and called it Pinkie. the only problem is that its stats aren't the best, and a 31 IV in speed isn't that good when your base speed is 20

Finding a shiny Pokemon in gen 5 is nearly impossible for me... To put it into perspective I got the Pokerus before I found a shiny.
Recently the Pokemon gods have been watching over me, and infected my Pokemon with the Pokerus.

In Black/White I found a shiny Audino. (It's purple!!)

In Black 2/White 2 I found another shiny Audino.

Shinies aren't even that big of a deal to me anymore... They're just different-looking.

Out of pure curiosity, were you looking to catch in Audino in both games or was it just pure luck that you encountered two Audino's that were both shiny just walking through the grass. Interesting though, nice find.

Have the odds of getting a shiny stayed the same across all of the games?

Yes and no. To begin with, without hatching or acquiring the shiny charm, the chances are the same as all other games with a 1 out of 8192 chance. There is a method that has been introduced in prior games however called the Masuda Method (only from D/P and so on) when hatching which involves getting two Pokemon from completely different countries that somehow increase the odds of hatching a shiny to 3 out of 4096. The shiny charm, only introduced in BW2, increases the chances of finding a shiny to 1 out of 2730.

The other day posting on this thread saying how I was yet to find a shiny Pokemon in gen 5 actually changed today! I was trying to breed Charmanders to create an absolute beast of a Charizard. Timid nature, and maxed out EVs and perfect IVs for the timid nature. However during my conquest in doing so I hatched a shiny Charmander! It was a good surprise!

I haven't seen any shinies since a Mightyena in Sapphire (which went missing).

In fact, in all my years playing, I've only seen 3 shiny Pokémon (excluding the red gyarados in Johto).

Aside from the rareness factor though, are there really any differences between shiny and non-shiny Pokémon?
Patiently awaiting final versions of these hacks: TheJohto Legacy series - starting with the most complete one, the Christmas hack, Pokémon Liquid Crystal, Pokémon Crystal Dust, Pokémon DarkViolet, Pokémon Prism

For starters, there's the shiny Haxorus. Not long after I fully completed my Unova Dex back in November, I went to the Nature Preserve and brought my Synchronizer. First attempt at catching it was female with Mold Breaker. One Quick Ball, and it was mine. Even better, Adamant nature with 30 HP IV, 31 Attack and 29 Defense. While it's general fare, I think that was a pretty good pull.

I completed the National Pokédex and got the Shiny Charm back in May. First shiny i've found since getting it was a Petilil while I was EV training my new Nidoking in Victory Road a few weeks ago. It was in a double battle with a Roselia. I would have liked if it was the Roselia that was shiny, since Roserade is one of my favorite Pokémon, but hey, i'll take it.
