I've been fortunate enough to encounter quite a number of shiny Pokemon on my Fire Red saved file:

Skarmory on Seven Island
Tentacool in Icefall Cave
Electrode in Cerulean Cave
Rhyhorn in the Safari Zone

In Leaf Green, I caught a shiny Bellsprout on Route 15 and a shiny Geodude in Mt. Ember.

In Emerald, the only shiny I've ever encountered and failed to capture is a shiny Rhyhorn in Hoenn's Safari Zone (about a month after I caught my shiny Rhyhorn in the Fuchsia Safari Zone).

My first Gen 3 shiny was a Fearow from Route 23 on an old playthrough of FireRed. It was back in 2005... I think.

I happened to stumble upon a shiny Meowth in my Pokemon Fire Red, and although Persian's shiny is lacking uniqueness, a shiny is a shiny.

Whismur in Sapphire. I caught it right when I got to the cave where they first appeared, though sadly I don't have mine anymore. D:

Well, after 10 years of hardcore-pokemon my little brother was finaly alowed to play on my save for once. After 2 minutes he asked what was wrong with a pokemon if it sparkles and had a different collor. I freaked out, he found a shiny growlithe , I named it sunshine B).

Haven't run into a shiny on Gen III yet- they all were on other generations (V and IV).

My first shiny was a Pidgey. c: Had one Pokéball, it luckily worked. I'd have quit life it hadn't.

My first Shiny Pokémon on Gen. Three was a Trapinch on Emerald. It follows me on HeartGold as a Flygon now.

Never found a shiny. Not. At. All. In any pokemon game. Pokémon hate me. I've been playing the games for 13 years now too.

i only saw one shiny in gen3. it was in Pokemon Emerald. It was a zigzagoon, but i CANT catch it because it was the one that was chasing Prof Birch at the beginning of the game, and obviously i have no pokeball that time.

My first Shiny was a red Duskull on Ruby on the Route west of Lilycove, beside the Safari Zone (can't remember what number it was haha). I thought it was so cool and immediately caught it but was too lazy to train it and thinking it was nothing special traded it to my friend for a Cyndaquil egg. I got it back as a Dusclops in it's seventies and boy it was good. However my friend saved over my Emerald game losing it. I was so upset at the time haha.

Mine was a Sunkern that I caught in the Safari Zone. Not the best shiny, but it was my first one ever and i was pretty excited about it. Caught it on the first try too!

Pidgey is the first and only Shiny I've come across in a Pokemon game (other than the Red Gyarados) .
I saw it after almost 150 hours playing and luckily I had Pokeballs with me then.

My first ever shiny was a Ponyta in Leafgreen on One Island (iirc). It's probably the coolest shiny that I've ever caught/hatched on my own along with my shiny Eevee.

I might have seen a shiny Oddish on one of my many playthroughs of a 3rd Gen game, but I sure didn't capture it.

I have never seen a single shiny in my Gen III games. Mostly because I have bad luck and the RNG is broken in it so soft resetting never worked ;.; All those wasted hours trying to get a Shiny starter or Raquaza >.<
