    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).
