To this day I still think I came across a shiny Zubat in Gold, but since I was young and silly enough not to capture it and check it's unconfirmed.

So, technically speaking, my first shiny was a Floatzel I found in Diamond while using the PokeRadar to look for Ditto. Funny thing is, the grass didn't even turn white like it does to indicate shinies.

    My first Shiny...I don't even know it anymore. I think it was either a Shiny Dusclops in Ruby (long live the Sky Pillar) or a Shiny Tentacool in Emerald.
    Still got them both, although they are now evolved :)

      Sandshrew in the Pearl HG safari zone. I was unlucky up until then. Then I got Zubat, Poochyena and Geodude.

          My first shiny was a level 3 Ratatta. I was playing FireRed, and boy was I happy . It was approximately 3-4 months ago.

          My next encounter with a shiny Pokemon was in Pokemon Emerald version I found a shiny Nincada. Which was roughly 5 days ago.

          Both not great Pokemon, so I never used them on my team.

          I believe, correct me if I am wrong, but won't you get a shiny ninjask and shednija if you evolve your nincada. Ninjask also can be really awesome.

              That is very true! I should start using Nincada then

                  My first ever shiny was a Metapod in Pokemon Gold's Ilex Forest. I evolved it into the Pink Butterfree, and I liked how it reminded me of the one from the anime.

                  A funny story, the next shiny was an Unown in the same game. I was riding in a car, and I actually ran from it, not knowing that it's color was different (they look sorta similar), and I was looking in another direction while I encountered it. The next second, I realized that the Unown was slightly blue. But it was too late. FML. >.>

                    The very first shiny I had encountered was a shiny Rufflet. It was majestic, it was beautiful. I WANTED TO CATCH IT SO BAD. But it was hard to catch and I ran out of balls. I was DISAPPOINTED. It took me weeks to find it again but I never found it. I was sad. :(

                    My first official shiny, however, was a shiny Treecko. Received it via trade and it's now a shiny Sceptile. :)

                      My first shiny I saw was a shiny Spinarak in Crystal, at the time I didn't know because I had played silver and Spinaraks sprites look like shiny Spinarak so yeah.
                      The only shiny I have gotten was an Electrike I got after I beat the game, I decided to make eggs of my team and raise them. I grabbed two eggs of my Manrtric.
                      The first one hatched and was the shiny, the other wasn't but because they were brothers I kept both and transferred them both to pearl then Soul Silver.

                          Aside from the gyarados, I've never even seen a shiny in all my years. ;n;

                            My first shiny was Rayquaza in Ruby.

                            I was trying to catch it, but kept fainting it/it kept using struggle. I guess it's an accidental SR.

                                I didn't even realise it was shiny until a few months after I caught it when I searched what the star on it's info page meant.

                                    My first shiny was a Zubat in FireRed at Mount Moon. But I was playing on VBA, means with the speed button I was running from wild battles and I dindnt noticed it.
                                    My next shiny that was Rattata was also in FireRed. But this time I just started the game and was training my Charmander. I couldnt capture it because I had no pokeballs.
                                    My first shiny that I caught was in Heartgold. It was a Shiny Bellsprout on the route east of Mahagony where the entrance to Ice Cave is situated.

                                      My first Shiny? I guess it was the Red Gyarados of the Lake of Rage in HeartGold.

                                        I got a shiny Lotad when I "borrowed" my brothers Sapphire game. This is the first one I caught: The green Bronzor and the pink Sealeo on his Pearl game got ko'd on accident. I still seem to have pretty good luck with shinies, though.

                                        My first shiny I ever encountered was the Red Gyarados in GSC, like it has been with many :p Other than that, I've only ever encountered two shinies. The first one was a shiny Sneasel in one of my friends' games, and I'd say, he was extremely happy with this, though a shame I wasn't the one who got it >:( The third and most recent one was a shiny Dratini in the Safari Zone, and I guess people should know how that turned out... :(
