    I didn't even know what a shiny is until after I killed the red Gyarados, I was really noobish back then & thought that it had rabies or something & I have to kill it because it's a threat.

    The only real shiny I caught was an Ursaring, I was grinding for days at Mt. Silver & suddenly found it, luckily I was on an emulator so I saved state just in case, I caught it easily since nearly all my team was over-leveled but it was boxed since then.

    I never got a shiny in GSC aside from Red Gyarados and Igglybuff from the Odd Egg in Crystal. I do love shiny Pokemon, yes. :3 Would have been great to have a shiny Umbreon in gen II.

      i had just entered victory road, just moved some boulders. a greeny/red golbat appeared. first time I've ever seen a random shiny. checked my pokeballs, only had my masterball. made me sad. but ohwell. needed that thing for ho-oh. now seeing red gyarados was one thing. i had caught him. but a golbat?! i had no idea..

      The amount of Shiny Pokémon I've owned (excluding the Gyarados) can be counted on one hand- and none of them were found in G/S/C.

      Even with the Odd Egg in Crystal, no joy. And I emulated Crystal! I could've cheated to make it 100% likely, and everything! :(

        Red Gyarados is the only shiny I ever caught, too. I didn't even know what a shiny was until Gen IV......

          I've given up on shinies since Crystal .. I'll never forget when that shiny noctowl didn't want to get caught.

            In my Gold version, aside from Gyrados, I caught a shiny zubat outside of union cave at route 32. The sight itself was hilarious. I also caught a Golden Magikarp. Yes! Golden! I wanted to evolve the magikarp assuming it would evolve into a red gyrados and breed assuming I would get more golden magikarp but never got to trying it. Other than that, I cant remember any more for Gold.
            In emerald version, I caught a green Golbat in victory road. I may have also caught a shiny mareep at the safari zone if I remember correctly.

            Aside from Gyarados I've caught a Shiny Donphan, Weedle, and Oddish, and I've hatched a Shiny Elekid and a Shiny Magby from the ??? Egg in Crystal. Though out of all of them I only have the Shiny Elekid and the Shiny Magby now. One of them is currently stored in Pokemon Stadium 2 and the other one is on a rom on my phone.

              Haven't seen a shiny since then. Guess fortune is no longer shining on me. :P
              like this guy, i found a shiny golbat on victory road. but i only had a masterball so i didn't even bother with it and ran. besides that, I've found a shiny raticate. but this was on an emulator.
