    My first shiny? Hmm... I think it was a Voltorb in Gen 2.

    Might have had one prior to that, though I can't recall.

      I haven't caught one but I remember it like it was yesterday. I was maybe 8? I had Ruby, my first Pokemon game though, I liked it from the beginning. I was coming back to the lab after beating May and on Route 1... shiny Poochyena. of course at this point you couldn't get pokeballs sooo... you know. I almost died that day. It may have been my first game but I still knew a lot about Pokemon.

          First one seen was an Absol on my SS. I don't know how I ran out of all of those 100 or so ultra balls... The first one I caught was actually a Skitty on Emerald. It was my favourite pokemon ever, but I lost my GBA with pokemon emerald in it... Now I play on emulators I will miss my Skitty...

            My first, and only, Shiny is a Geodude. I named him Rock-man.

              I encountered & caught my first ever shiny about a week ago. I was just casually making my way through victory road when I ran in to a pokemon and saw the twinkle of the shiny stars surrounding a Banette! I kind of had a little nerd moment and freaked out, wife has no idea what I was babbling incoherently about shiny pokemon and 1/8000 encounter rate.

              Nonetheless, I had a decent supply & variety of pokeballs along with a Haxorus with false swipe to seal the deal. Now have my first shiny!

              I haven't really put him to use yet. Don't have much interest in ghost or Banette in particular, but it's still nice to come across in my box when I'm searching for something else!

                My first shiny was a Zubat in FR but I was rushing through Mt. Moon and accidently ran from it.
                My next was a Rattata also in FR but it was on Route 1 and I had no pokeballs.
                My first shiny that I caught was a Bellsprout in HG on the route east of Mahagony. The story is this-
                I was going through the route and I just wanted to check the grass pokemon for fun when this came out.

                My first was a Bidoof on Diamond version. D:
                After that (not including Lake of Rage Gyarados) my next was probably a Golbat on White version. Right now I'm hunting for a shiny Treecko by breeding them.
                I can't think of a good signature.

                  I'm not sure and I don't know if the first was a Magnemite or maybe a Zubat. In any case, they both were caught in my Ruby version (I couldn't find any in my Gold version T.T)

                  Allez, hop!

                    My first shiny was in Pokemon Crystal, and it was... an "i" Unown... I was so happy and I thought it was amazing, but only having hidden power kind of sucked...

                    Excluding the red Gyarados and the sinies I have received by trade, I would say that I unfortunately never encountered a shiny in the wild yet =/
                    Bu I did manage to breed a shiny Treecko tho.

                        I didn't get my first shiny (minus the gyarados in gsc) until Emerald when I found a shiny Wailmer.

                          My first shiny (besides Gyarados) that I found was a shiny Unown V while I was Unown-hunting in my Silver version. It was rather anticlimactic, and I didn't even know it was a shiny at first, but it still holds a special place in my heart.

                            The first one I got was a shiny Lotad in Sapphire, which belonged to my brother. I transferred the Lotad to my game later.

                              My first ever shiny Pokemon was a shiny Gyarados back in Pokemon Silver. I never used this Gyarados because I never liked Gyarados.

                                Shiny Weedle in SS. I don't even think I used it, shiny or not, Beedrill is garbage.

                                    The first shiny I ever saw was probably cheated for :/ can't remember which one I would've picked first.
                                    Legitimately, first one I saw and caught was a shiny numel on Emerald, I think.
                                    I still prize my legit shiny numel.
                                    Turnips shall rise.

                                      My first ever shiny was one of the most badass ones out there. I caught myself a shiny Ponyta back in Leafgreen. Looking back, I wish I hadn't traded it.

                                        A memory I savour. I was fishing in Oldale Town for a new surfer, but I was talking to my friend as well. So when I pulled it out, I missed the shine animation, but thought I heard it. Unfortunately, I'm colour-blind for red and green (this caused LOTS of loss of data back on the GBA) so I couldn't tell whether or not it was shiny. So I was just like, heck why not, and caught it. And I had a happy.

                                          My first & only shiny (excusing the Red Gyarados) was the most depressing Pokèmon moment of my entire lifetime.

                                          I had just begun my very first playthrough of Pokèmon Crystal & ran into a shiny Hoothoot.

                                            I bet everyone in here is lying and their first shiny was actually the Red Gyarados in Gold/Silver.

                                              ALL of my shiny sightings have been in emulators :< I guess I'm just luckier on the computer than in real life lol. Anyways, my first shiny sighting ever was in an emerald randomized version. I actually hadn't seen any pokemon at all yet before getting my pokeballs. It was weird. It was the SECOND pokemon I saw, a shiny castform. I practically screamed XD I caught her on my last pokeball somehow and nearly died when I threw that last one and saw it click. I named her Sparkles :3

                                              I've also seen a wild shiny grovyle on the same randomizer and caught it, and got a shiny turtwig as a starter (not on purpose) on a platinum emulator.
