In the third generation, all I saw was a Shiny Zigzagoon Lv2-4ish. And I saw it faint after an automatic response way-too-strong attack

Wow, Shiny Zubats and Tentacools everywhere.
Mine, was a shiny Swablu. It turned into a wonderful shiny Altaria, but then...
Well, Pokemon Diamond was best, I got 3 shiny's without PokeRadar. 7 if you count trading.
Shiny list:
Swablu - first time (Fake Ruby)
Aron - (Sapphire - turned to Aggron later)
Zubat - (Diamond - turned to Crobat later)
Bronzor - (seriously one day after I got the Zubat)
Ratatta - (top percentage)
Celebi - (traded event from SoulSilver)
Bagon - (my brother hatched an egg and lo, it's a shiny Bagon!)
Gyarados - (no explanation needed)
something else which I kind of forgot.

Come at me bro.

If I remember correctly my first shiny in Gen 3 was a Voltorb. It was blue instead of red, which was pretty badass. Didn't ever use it though.

First gen. 3 shiny for me was a Swablu in Ruby. Funny thing is, I caught her while looking for a shiny Zangoose...

Did you hear the falling bombs?
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter

Well it was quite an interesting story.

Back in the day when I didn't really know much about shinies and such, I encountered a Shiny Numel. Now, my cousin (Who's a very "hardcore" Pokemon player) was with me at the time. I told him "Woah, a water type Numel, IT'S GONNA DIE) . My cousin was all "Dude what the heck are you talking about? " . He took my game and stared at it for about a minute and told me too catch it. Once I caught it he offered me a Groudon. Now, at that time to me, Legendaries were just A+ material to me, and having a second Groudon just made my jaw drop. Now too this day, even though he cloned it many times over with this Action Replay (During 4th Gen) , he refuses to give me a Numel (Which is now a Camerupt) .
If you want to play Dota2 with me, just send me a PM, I'm always willing to play in a stack :D

My first shiny in the third generation was a wingull. I was playing Ruby and had been playing for only twenty minutes.
Together we should be able to do anything. Because you've been my best friend since the beginning.

I've been playing these games on and off since Generation I was released and I have yet to encounter a shiny Pokemon in any generation. Admittedly I haven't played the recent generations as much, which from what I understand it's easier to catch shiny Pokemon in the later generations.

I've recently resumed playing the Gen III series of games. I'll definitely update this post if I catch a shiny Pokemon.

Shiny Aron in Emerald. The funny thing is it was the first Pokemon I encountered in Dewford, I was so happy but I didn't end up using it because it was not a legal Pokemon to use in my fighting monotype...sad times.

I caught my first shiny in my brother's Sapphire game. It was a shiny Lotad. I traded it into my game later, and traded another Lotad in return. I wonder if he ever noticed anything.

To be honest I never got a shiny pokemon before. Even though I had 240 hours on emerald. I even didn't meet Latias/Latios.

I want a Gameboy color!!!

Weedle in Leafgreen :/ My cousin was playing it, and I was in the other room. Then I heard him shouting, "Abby, why is the spike purple!?" and I went and was like "HOLLLLLLYGOSGMRPHINMBNS;RH;NBFS;RH" and I caught it. Not the coolest shiny ever, but I was excited.

My first Shiny ever was in Emerald, about 7 or 8 years ago, just outside Fortree to the right in the big patch of grass; a male Poochyena who I nicknamed GOLDWONDER. Trainer was a guy called DACTYL at the time (I used to prefer using the male protag and Aerodactyl was the first thing I thought of to inspire a name at the time xD).

I still have him as a Mightyena, all this time later, as I bring him with me across each gen. <3 Best part is, Mightyena is my favourite Pokémon, and I don't like having female Pokémon. Not to mention there's no such thing as shiny hunting in RSE, it was all down to random encounters. Yet I still got him. <3

My first shiny was a male gulpin I begged my cousin to trade to me from his Ruby version. I still have him, and he currently resides in my copy of HG. I haven't caught any other shiny Pokemon in a gen 3 game, but I did encounter a shiny pidgeotto on one of the sevii islands in LG and accidentally KO'd it...

Ah my first shiny in III gen was a swalot on a ruby a friend had lent me. I thought I was gonna have a heart attack from the emotion. I was also the first "real" shiny I captured( as red gyarados from gold didnt count and I couldnt catch a shiny spinarak back then). I also got a shiny wooper on my firered. It was like 7-8 years ago... nowadays... turns out that I gave my diamond where they were to my nephew, he exchanged the game card and when he got it back...no more shinies... I only cried three days X'''D
