    My first (and only) shiny was a Slugma a caught in Fiery Path approximately 2 years ago. I only spent about half an our searching. After that, I haven't had much luck but I don't really mind.

        My first shiny was Spinda, but I am very disappointed in it to this day. Considering how the positioning of the patches on Spinda are random, this particular shiny Spinda, had patches covering its ears mostly. So you could see the vomit-green on the body, but an almost bare face up top.

        I have 47 shinies in my of box called "shiny" and "shiny 2" in black and white, but my first ever encounter was in emerald in victory road. It was a shiny purple-ish Lairon back in 2005. Then came Gyrados, Dratini, Scyther, and ect, until 2 months ago I got a shiny Regigigas in platinum by accident.

                First shiny I encountered and caught was a Carvanha. I was quite shocked to see it sparkle, so I didn't want to lose it. I used a pokemon that had weak attacks, weakened it down then caught it with an Ultra Ball.

                  Zigzagoon, but only from the Berry Glitch fix disc that you could get many years back, still never encountered one to this date.

                      unfortunately it was a wingull. I caught it right before the Trick Masters house, so it was pretty early in the game. That was my only shiny ... :l

                        I've played pokemon for most of my 19 years and never found a shiny in an official game. I did however find a shiny spheal on a ruby hack, possibly snakewood, which I caught. It's at the point now where every wild pokemon I encounter, i'm like come ooon this has to be the one.

                          Well...please don't laugh.

                          In Ruby I was in the forest that is the first one as you start the game (I forget the name). A shiny purple Wormple appeared.

                          Ran Away. I did not even know what a shiny was until my mate told me. I thought it was a bug in the game. No I am just a newbie.

                          Now I found out that they appear like only once in like 8192 normals?

                            That happened to me twice in Pokemon Gold. First, I saw a pink Butterfree and thought it was just the girl version, so I ran away. then later I saw a shiny oddish, I caught it though, and showed my bro that it had yellow stems. I didn't know about shiny pokemon until a couple years later.

                                  My first ever shiny was a bronzong in pokemon pearl. At the time i was fairly new to pokemon and didn't know what a shiny was or how rare it was to see one. I caught it and never used it again.

                                  First shiny I ever encountered was a green Golbat in Meteor Falls. Saw it while looking for Bagon.

                                  After placing it in the PC for archive, I never really used it in battles, but I did want to train it until it evolves.

                                    I encountered a Shiny Bagon in Meteor Falls after 2nd turn. Boy that made my Day a whole cool. Then I trained with it and won many battles with it easily when it became a Salamence

                                          My first was a Zigzagoon on Route 118, I caught it, evolved it, and then made a bad pun with its name: "Shinoone." He sits in my master version, Diamond, as the only non-HM slave Linoone I've ever had.

                                          I've also got a shiny Regice from Emerald that I didn't reset for, it just happened. I'm like, screw it, Master Ball.
