      My first shiny(s) was near fallarbor in emerald. 2 shiny slugma's back to back. So excited to have a shiny, and two at that! A few weeks later I found a shiny zigzagoon. Then I beat the E4 and my game data decided to corrupt itself. sigh .

      I found a shiny Zigzagoon once. That one I caught, but I also found a shiny Whismur, but I didn't have any Pokeballs :/

        I have never found a single shiny in ANY pokemon game. The only shiny I have isnt in RSE its in crystal. And its a shiny pichu that I hatched sometime at the end of last school year. My brother has 1 shiny hariyama that I traded to my ruby version to keep it safe since he was playing my emerald. I have it in the corner of a box, waiting for my brother to let me migrate it to one of his games.

          Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

          I remember finding a shiny once... and not the red Gyrados... not sure what it was though...

          Love is the Law, Love under Will.

          Third Generation hated me I guess. I had never found a Shiny in this generation despite how much I had played my Ruby. My sister on the other hand didn't play her Ruby for long and caught a Shiny Zubat. Lucky her.

            Yeah, I must admit that I never saw a shiny in Third Generation...

              Really, the old random wild shinies I ever found randomly and caught were on my Ruby. (One of them at least lol, I have 3). Shiny Numel and Shiny Skitty.

                Not too long ago I replayed through ruby and found 2 shinies by the elite four, and I believe my only one I ever stumbled upon myself. Granted they were of the two most common Pokemon to exist ever: Magikarp, and Zubat.
                And stupidly I evolved the Magikarp (because I mean who doesn't have a red Gyarados)

                  I found two Shiny Pokemon while playing.

                  One was a Lotad in Sapphire, but I ran from it.

                  The other was my first ever Shiny caught, a Duskull in Ruby.

                  I've never found a shiny in RSE and this makes me sad :( To be honest I never really played them long enough to find one though. I think I've only ever played through the Hoenn region twice, both times on Sapphire, and then got bored of it and moved on to Sinnoh? I just never found the Hoenn region that interesting so I never really explored it enough to find a shiny haha. There are some very cool shiny Pokémon in the third generation though so I'd love to encounter one if I play again!

                    Abra, Spinda, Oddish, Poochyena, Swablu, and Golbat in RSE

                    Even though it's not RSE, I found Rattata, Venonat, and I feel like I'm forgetting another one in FireRed.

                          I caught a shiny Wingull on route 110 in my Emerald. I've migrated it to my Heart Gold now but, I remember having no idea what a shiny was, but green was my favorite color so I immediately threw a pokeball.

                          My first legit shiny I've ever found was a shiny Mightyena in my Pokémon Emerald! I remember it like it happened four or five years ago (because it did): I was playing Emerald, and I had beaten the Elite Four for the twelfth time. I was extremely bored; said boredom caused me to just randomly fly to Lilycove City and battle wild Pokémon just east of the city. Next thing I new...BAM! Shiny Mightyena. I freaking flipping out here, and I end up catching it. I loved that Mightyena so much. So, I decide to preserve it by transferring it over to Pearl. But then I FORGOT ABOUT IT AND ENDED UP RESTARTING MY PEARL VERSION AND WHEN I REMEMBERED IT WAS TOO LATE AND I WAS LIKE, "NOOOOOO, MY MIGHTYENAAAAAA!!!!! DDDD':"

                          To this very day, I still hate myself for that.

                            I found a shiny Wurmple in Emerald. I remember my dad worrying about the inhuman sound that I made after my last Pokeball finally worked.

                            I caught a shiny Poochyena, Lugia, Ho-oh, and Groudon in Emerald. I RNG abused a shiny Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Regice in Sapphire. I never did anything much with my shinies. I really wanted a lot more shiny Pokemon, but I got them in later generations now.

                            My one and only Hoenn shiny was a blue Psyduck. But he's gone now. I unknowingly saved a new game. Regrets, regrets. :(

                            In my time I've found several. I've found two shiny Zubat, a shiny Golbat and a shiny Cacnea. I have also encountered a shiny Jolteon in the Battle Pyramid and versed a shiny Metagross in the Battle Tower.

                                I believe it was either in Emerald or Sapphire I caught a shiny Tropius. I was my first shiny pokemon ever and I absolutely loved it.

                                  My first shiny ever was a Pidgey on the route right before Mt. Moon, it was level 7. Caught it, trained it, it's sitting in my Diamond's PC box now. Can't get it out, because I have no DS anymore I was really young, like seven when I got this one on my first playthrough. I didn't know what a shiny was, because I was so young. Just saw a little sparkle and was like "COOL" and chucked a great ball at it.

                                  My first one in RSE was Groudon in my Ruby, on my first playthrough. Lucky, right? So I went to battle it, and I go into battle to catch it. I see the sprite and was like "wtf it was red on the cover". So, I threw a masterball at it, and again, hiding in my Diamond.

                                  I also have a shiny Pikachu in my Diamond, because I used breeding to get a volt tackle pichu, and the first egg that hatched was shiny, AND knew volt tackle.
