        My first (and only) shiny encounter was a Zigzagoon on Emerald right after you get your starter. So naturally, I got really excited only to find I didn't have any Pokéballs yet. I was extremely disappointed.

          My first was a shiny Swablu. Then another shiny Swablu on the next playthrough. I also had a shiny Poochyena back in the day. My only other shiny is Misdreavus in Soul Silver.

            My very first shiny was in Ruby back when i was in 7th grade, maybe. It was a Marril. I didnt know what shinies were at the time, so when a green Marril popped up i was like "WHAT?" and i tried to catch it like crazy, i dont remember if i actually succeeded...

              First I saw was probably Geodude on Emerald. That was about 7 orso years ago. It used self- destruct I believe.

              The first I caught was a Ponyta on my FireRed version, and after around 5 years, I still have it.

              I also remember a shiny Aipom in Safari zone. It ran away after first Safari ball and I broke my DS Phat that day out of anger if I remember. Truly one of the worst days of my life, all because of some programming troll.

                  My first shiny Pokémon was a Spearow in LeafGreen. I evolved it into a Fearow, and life was good. On a playthrough of FireRed, I caught a shiny Geodude in Mt. Moon. I don't have either of the files anymore, though

                    First shiny ever was a Ponyta in Mt. Ember in Firered.
                    I accidentaly the K.O.

                    The first one I caught on the other hand was a Voltorb in Emerald.
                    It was not quite as impressive looking.

                        My first shiny was a Golbat in HG, but my first (and only) shiny I've encountered in gen 3 was a Loudred. I tried to use it to calculate my secret i.d., and thus perform RNG manipulation, but I wasn't able to.

                          My first in Gen III was a Relicanth. My sister erased the save file before I could transfer it.

                          I... actually don't remember. xD Maybe it was an Onix which I encountered on my way to Lavender Town through the Rock Tunnel. Either that, or it could've been a Heracross from the Safari Zone of Pokémon Emerald. I wasn't able to catch either of them, unfortunately. I didn't have any Poké Balls with me to catch the first one, and the second one ran away from me as soon as I tripped over it.

                                  My first shiny was a cacnea on Ruby. I played the game when it came out but killed it because I knew nothing of shinies at that time. Next came a shiny trapinch on saphire but after I captured it, batteries went dead. At this time, I couldn't help but rage on my gba. And recently while playing Emerald I got a shiny tentacool.

                                    If you say in 3rd Generation games, it's Tentacool.
                                    I was going to Dewford Town and boom! It appeared.
                                    I've caught it using a Poké Ball and it worked. :D
                                    I don't use it though, I stored it into the PC as a collection.

                                      My first shiny while Playing Pokemon Emerald in my GBA.
                                      Through 2.081 resets, shiny Ralts appeared. It was so beautiful
                                      and Cute. I cherished Ralts ever since I caught her.

                                      In all the years I've owned games from the 3rd Generation, I have never encountered a shiny Pokémon at all although I have never tried RNGing either or let alone soft-resetting..

                                        My first shiny in a third gen game was a shiny groudon. I was about to catch it when my gba died. When I finally got to it again, it wasn't shiny anymore. : (

                                          My first shiny in any Pokémon game was a Geodude in Pokémon Diamond. Coincidentally, my second shiny was a Geodude in Emerald.
