    Excluding shiny Gyarados from Lake of Rage, my first ever shiny was a wild Geodude I came across in Granite Cave next to Dewford Town. I think the first time I caught it, I didn't realize that it was shiny. I just thought it was weird looking. I was such a nub. -.-'

      My first shiny I ever encounterd was a Shiny Electrike in my Pokemon Sapphire version. I found it on that route where you battle May on your way to Mauville City. I think I still have it today, and I remember that after I found it and caught it, the damn thing kept me going around the whole Hoenn region looking for other odd-colored Pokemon! Haha.

        Shiny Koffing way back in Gold. I remember I gave my granny a shot of my gameboy colour and she was in the Burnt Tower and it appeared. I got all excited and then stupidly pressed run!
        First one I caught (barring red gara) was a Seaking in the Safari Zone in LG. First chained shiny was a Pichu in Plat.

              Shiny Gyarados from Lake of Rage is the only Shiny I have ever encountered.
              Not that I mind much, Not much of a fan of shiny Pokemon anyway.

                  A Tentacool in my Gold, while surfing near the Whirl Islands.
                  I had no idea why it was different coloured, but I caught it anyway.

                    That booger. Found him in Ruby and caught it cause I thought it was diseased and I wanted to make him feel better! The only wild encounter shiny I no longer have.

                        Excluding the Gyarados, the first shiny I found was an Espeon in the battle tower in FR... Couldn't catch it... But I guess that doesn't count cause it wasn't catchable, then next one was a Steelix in victory road in the Diamond I was borrowing from my friend but I ran out of ultra balls... Then there was a Graveler in my Platinum that used selfdestruct... But I managed to finally catch a shiny when replaying my Silver, it was a Hoothoot Then I caught a shiny Ponyta when replaying my White. 2/5 shinies were caught, what bad luck :/

                          My first shiny was actually on the Emerald Randomizer Hack, I found a Shiny Blissey in Victory Road

                          My first legit game shiny was a Woobat in Black, right in the start too. Too bad it was adamant.

                            And I've never seen any
                            just what are the damn chances of finding one? I've been playing these games for years!

                              I've never seen any shiny pokemon (excluding Red Gyrados) in any of the games either :-/ Although, I did catch a shiny Druddigon in Flora Sky, but I guess that doesn't count.

                                Zubat in gold. I didn't know what shinies were back then so I was really confused but I caught it anyway. And then a pidgey in leafgreen which I lost cause I forgot about it and reset my game. And lastly, a tympole in black.

                                Just encountered my first shiny today (yep officially today at 12:40 am) - in Black 2.

                                I just wanted to play the game for about 15 minutes before going to sleep, hoping on making my Pokemon stronger for the Elite 4, and first Pokemon to appear on Route 22 was my first shiny. Before I had never experience a shiny in any of my previous Pokemon games.

                                To my surprise, it was one of my favorite Pokemon in the world, and my favorite fighting type too.

                                Encountered: A level 39, female, Mienfoo. I gave her the nickname Maria, after my mom and grandma -
                                here's the proof from my Nintendo DS Lite:
                                Spoiler:


                                I was jumping up and down with joy for about half hour, my sleepy feeling went away.
                                No, I'm not going to user her in my current team. Instead I'm going to buy another copy of Black 2 or White 2 and transfer her over. I want to play all-mustelid Pokemon team.

                                The only thing that would make me even happier is if I encountered a shiny Patrat. I wish it comes true.

                                My first shiny was... A shiny Gligar on my Gold version XD

                                I have no idea why but I was going down the path south of Blackthorn City and happened to run into it. I did actually know what a shiny was at the time, because of the Red Gara and I was flipping out because I was shocked to actually run into it. Since then, I don't think i've managed to run into another D:

                                I'm sure it was a Beedrill in silver. I caught it during the bug-catching contest and despite the fact that it was a shiny Beedrill, I still lost the contest.

                                  Assuming that the red Gyarados doesn't count, mine was a ditto in Gold. It was awesome.

                                    Magnemite in Black 2. First time tbh getting a random shiny. I believe it was somewhere around the second town as well. Tell you what, nothing made me feel better about Pokemon gaming than finding a Shiny Magnemite shortly after starting my game. lol.................i no longer have it
