    My first shiny was a Staravia, in Pearl. I have since lost the cartridge :-(

    Have you ever seen a chicken strip?

      Guys guys guys! I already commented here saying that I haven't ever had a shiny, but as of yesterday that's no longer true! I used the Masuda method and got a shiny Squirtle after 60 eggs :D I called him Olive :D I'm so happy!

        The first shiny I ever saw was in Pokemon Fire Red, it was a Nidoran in the Safari Zone. I had no idea what it was and didn't catch it...It's horrible to think about that now. The first one I caught (with the exception of the red Gyarados)was...of all things, a Zigzagoon in Pokemon Emerald. Still, a shiny is a shiny.

          My first shiny was an Exeggcute caught in Fire Red, in the safari zone. I remember thinking it would it flee and freaking out.

            I've never caught a shiny i've been playing black 2 for 139 hours and still nothing. Recently i found out about pokecreator and hacked my own shiny metagross with pokerus, perfect iv's and impossible moves. But i quickly felt alot of guilt and felt the effects of having a non-legit pokemon, so i released it and deleted the app from my phone. I never hacked pokemon since.

            Anyhow, i'm still hoping for one day getting a shiny, i'm sure it will feel really nice.

                Beside shiny gyarados - I never ever saw a shiny in any of the original roms But than on the other hand I found a lot of shinies playing various hacks :3

                I found: Shiny buizel - Rising Dark
                Shiny weedle, claydol and buneary - Victory fire
                Shiny blitzle - Flora sky (This was the last one that I found like 2 days ago or so)
                Shiny roselia - In Fire Red Backwards
                I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
                I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

                I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.

                  I encountered my first shiny (I'm not counting the Gyarados in HGSS) while training in Victory Road on Pokemon Black - a Woobat. Never had I thought I would ever come across a shiny, and I had just gotten out of a long break from Pokemon, so it was a really welcome surprise. I was worried I wouldn't catch it since I didn't have any Pokemon on me that could damage it without KOing it, and I was pretty low on Pokeballs, but luck was with me, and I got it after maybe four attempts.

                  My second encounter was in the Safari Zone in SoulSilver - a Cacturne. It was pretty evil too, I ended up throwing six Safari Balls at it before it decided it was done taunting me and ran off. :x I wasn't as devastated as I thought I'd be though, probably because I don't like Cacturne anyhow.

                    If I won't count the shiny Gyrados from pokemon gold than it would be the Golbat that caught in pokemon Emerled.

                      My 2nd but 1st shiny that I have encountered and caught was my shiny Staravia which is now a level 60 staraptor and on my black 2 version. I caught it in platinum and with a quick ball (on the first turn obviously) I was happy that I caught my first shiny (excluding gyarados in HG/SS). My first shiny I encountered was a shiny geodude in firered, it ran away hence why it wasn't my first shiny caught but encountered.

                            I always make a point that others are luckier than I, koff~

                            My first shiny Pokemon (Red Gyrados does not count) was a Zubat in Pokemon Silver! Wait, it gets better. In the Third Generation in Pokemon Emerald? Zubat. Pokemon Leaf Green? Zubat. Fourth generation? In Pokemon Pearl: Zubat, in Pokemon Soul Silver? You guessed it: zubat.

                            I've encountered so many of the things that I don't even bother to catch them anymore. I am not even joking about this. The odds of this are slim, I know, but I'm not kidding. It's absurd, I know. My first shiny that was not a Zubat was a ponyta and in the fifth generation it was a Duosion. If zubat was in the wild in Pokemon White, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have ran into another shiny zubat, koffi~

                                My first shiny was Electrike... On my friend game. So many years after that, my own first shiny was Azurill in Black and White 2, i'm an unlucky person.

                                      Excluding that, I caught a Shiny Azumarill in a Master Ball that I had been saving for just such an occasion. I was really happy when I saw it because I knew there was no chance of it escaping

                                      I have also traded for two seemingly legitimate ones; a Japanese Shiny Metagross and a Shiny Jellicent.

                                        First Shiny was at the beginning of my adventure in Soul Silver, and bumped into a Shiny Weedle. Competitively it's not the best Pokemon family but I always loved them.

                                          The fist shiny I ever found was a shiny zubat in Fire Red. At the time I found it, I was 5 and a noob. I didn't think it was very important so I killed it. I think back to that day and become sad because I didn't catch it :'(. That was my first shiny.

                                            My first shiny was a shiny Goldeen on Leaf Green's Safari Zone. I managed to catch it in the Safari ball, they really aren't that hard to catch in the Safari Zone. It's kind of ironic how a Goldeen is really pink, and this one I found was actually gold. xD Anyway, I named him Goldfins and evolved him to a Seaking, then all the way up to around lvl. 70. :D

                                            ✰ Goldfins ✰

                                              Excluding the shiny Gyarados in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, my first shiny was a Tentacool.
