Has anyone ever caught and used a shiny during one of their story line playthroughs? I've caught a couple of shinies in my time but only ever in the post game, and was wondering if anyone had been lucky enough to use one through the game - my biggest wish in Pokemon!

Interesting side note, the only time I've encountered a shiny during the story of a game was in Ruby - Wally's Ralts! Unfortunately after he caught it it lost its shininess for the rest of the game but still, that was infuriatingly hilarious.

I once used a Shiny Ponyta in Pokémon Diamond! Pretty sure it was my first shiny, and I was super glad I got it during the game rather than after the end of the main story haha. Only shiny I've gotten in time for that ):

Back in Leaf Green I managed to capture a shiny Spearow sometime after I beat the Lt. Surge, which I believe was also my first shiny, but I don't recall being too excited about it, I was probably too young to know how special it was.

I have a few shinies on my team right now in SM! n.n Story-wise I haven't encountered any but a Goldeen which I wasn't interesting in using, though.

Storywise the only time I did this was when I found a random shiny Shinx in Diamond. It was literally at the start of the game so it couldn't have been better timing!

This is exactly what I want! I'm sure I must be due a well timed shiny soon enough, but I'm always paranoid that I'm going to encounter one before I get pokeballs, or have another experience with Wally...

Nope. Every one of my random shiny encounters have happened either lategame when my party has already been established, postgame, or when I'm already raising the same Pokemon. It was hilarious in my last playthrough of Emerald a few years ago; I was levelling up Numel so it can catch up to everyone else, and who should appear but a shiny Numel.
