    Gyarados aside, the first shiny I remember catching was a shiny Spearow on LeafGreen. My first LeafGreen file, back in 2004 or 2005 when I was eleven. I was so excited to find and catch it! It took me completely by surprise, I was just randomly walking through some grass near Vermilion City and there it was. I still have that Spearow, years ago I transferred it over to my Diamond, and I evolved it forever ago. :) Memories!

      I've never shiny hunted - and as a result have never gotten a random encounter (Red Gyarados doesn't count).

      So my first shiny was a shiny Magikarp in Let's Go - but I hunted for it.

      A shiny Pidgey early into a run of Pokemon Silver, when I am not counting Red Gyarados.

      Have obtained a bunch of them; dumb luck, trades and Poke Radar chaining.

        My first shiny was a gold octillery in x/y. I got it from the fishing trick.

        Pokemon Platinum where I ran into a shiny Graveler and it self destructed.... I wanted to cry :(((

        The first shiny that I caught was a shiny Alolan Meowth which I happened to run into in USUM!

          My first shiny I saw was a Croagunk in pearl, but the first I actually ever caught was a Bellsprout in Soulsilver. I found the bellsprout before I even beat the first gym, so it was really cool, so I got to use it on my adventure.

            I feel your pain. When I played Dark Rising 2 for the first time, I ended up running into a shiny Probopass in some lategame location and after it survived my Empoleon's Surf with red HP, it went on to Explode in its face.

            Ignoring the logic of exploding in front of a Steel-type, I have ever since been disliking Probopass. Stupid bearded nose abomination.

            My first shiny ever was a Sawk in Pokemon Black :{




            It's....not that distinct from the original form.

              Shiny Meowth, Pokemon Silver. I remember I killed about 10 of them before I even knew it was a thing.

                Surprised we don’t have this thread yet. Anyways, I actually do in fact have a legit shiny! It was a Trumbeak i found in Ultra Moon, not a Nuzrun, I was grinding teammates and happened to come across one. I’m still considering evolving it for fun but still not sure yet.

                So what’s your first (legit) shiny mon?

                This is really hard to remember. I spent so much time exclusively playing rom hacks, but I think on a legitimate game cartridge it was a Shiny Linoone, in Omega Ruby.

                It wasn't that special to me, since I wasn't willing to trade out one of my team members. It ended up sitting in the box.

                  Surprisingly, I can remember quite well what shiny I caught well over a decade and a half ago. I came across a shiny Tangela on Silver, and it took a good amount of ultra balls to catch it. I was pretty happy for quite a while.

                  Ditto from friend safari, so disappointed to find that it didn't transform into the shiny version of the Pokemon you were battling, and its stats were mad bad.

                          The first shiny I ever got at least in recent memory was a Budew I got in Y Who is currently a Beautiful Roserase. He resides in my moon copy and I’m still very happy with him!

                            The first I ever seen was a Geodude my partner caught in Gold. Unfortunately the battery is long dead.

                            Besides the lake of rage encounter, the first one I caught was a Slugma in Sapphire. I then proceeded to catch a whole slew of shinies in Gen 3 much to her annoyance!

                                Excluding Red Gyarados and the like. The game I got my first shiny was either Pokemon Crystal, where I found a shiny Weedle that fell out of a tree. Or Pokemon Sapphire, where I found a shiny Tentacool while surfing. Not sure which was first, as it was a long time ago. I seem to recall planning on training the Weedle, but never getting round to it. So both the Weedle and the Tentacool ended up being boxed and never used xD. Both saves are long gone now.

                                  Excluding the red Gyarados in SoulSilver, I caught my very first Shiny yesterday in LGE, it was a Bellsprout. And right today I caught a shiny Vulpix in the same game.
