    I got super lucky with Kendall, my Shiny Torkoal from Emerald. He was sooooo cool! B)

          My first shiny ever was in 3rd gen, and it was a Minun. Unfortunately that play-through was an emulated play through on an unpatched Emerald and as soon as I beat the E4 the save file was gone.

            I caught a shiny Zigzagoon in route 118. I had no idea why is it different in color.
            I didn't know that there were shiny Pokémon.

                Mine was a shiny Zubat in Meteor Falls when I was 6 years old. I did not know what a shiny Pokemon was at the time so I KOed it :p. The first Shiny I ever caught was a shiny Swablu right outside of meteor falls the next year.

                I've never had a shiny encounter on ANY pokemon game, my life sucks...
                But my brother had 4(!!) shinies on his ruby: a swablu, an exeggute, a Rhyhorn and a wailmer.

                  Mine was actually my very first shiny caught, a female lotad on my brother's game. Years later, I transferred it to my Soulsilver game, where she remains, as a Ludicolo.

                    Funnily enough, I've only ever captured three shinies and they were all in Emerald, on the Daycare route (I clearly spent way too much of my time there, haha). My first was an Illumise, followed by a Marill and finally, a Poochyena.

                      My first one was a shiny Tropius in Ruby. It was quite magnificent.

                          My first was an Oddish in Emerald, that I killed. In one hit. From my weakest Pokemon. I cried for the rest of the day.

                                  My first shiny. Wow, that takes me back... to a couple of hours ago. Yes, I caught my first shiny, literally a few hours before reading this thread. A beautiful little yellow Swablu on my way to Meteor Falls, like 2 others on this thread. Why is everyone going to Meteor Falls? Conspiracy...

                                      Ahh, my first shiny.
                                      Been playing Pokemon for years, and I found it while walking around on HeartGold.
                                      It was a Rattata.
                                      A freaking Rattata.
                                      Hahaha, I was kinda pissed, but also, it was my first shiny, too.
                                      But then I got a shiny Mudkip from Prof. Birch one time.
                                      That was fun.

                                        On Sapphire I caught a shiny Electrike. My gameboy died as I was saving. Corrupted file, dead shiny.

                                          I caught a Shiny marill. Weeks later, as I was preparing to face the E4, my gba did the same thing and gave me a corrupt save. However, my game was able to recover my previous save! I got lucky I guess, and my shiny stayed alive...but then he died just recently because I lost my cartridge.

                                            I've never found a shiny in my Gen III games D: Though I did try and soft reset for a Shiny Torchic a long time ago, only recently did I find out that the RNG in it was broken so it was literally impossible to do so unless you were really lucky.
