Got my first shiny... a Lickitung! I really wish its tongue was the same light greenish color as its skin. That pink tongue looks so weird. Lol.

Congrats!! A shiny is a shiny. :D Are you planning on evolving and using it?

I haven't gotten any yet, but I'd really like a shiny Ponyta to use. It's so pretty and would've been awesome to have on my team.

- My first shiny came outta no where while I was surfing. Manage to catch a shiny Seel. Now it's a good IV Dewgong. Not the best but I'll take it.
- Had to edit this. Just completed and captured another shiny. Got my shiny Giratina after 95 or 96 soft resets! I'm so happy right now.

The only shiny I knowingly used was a shiny, lonely Starly in Gen. 4. It was going to be part of my team irregardless of being shiny or not. Don't really care for shiny pokemon but I really like a Shiinotic shiny caught in SwSh. The only other shiny used in a game was a Groudon from Gen. 3 that I didn't even know was a shiny until much later.

I don't have any luck with shiny pokemon. I remain hopeful, but it doesn't ever seem to happen.

I've found a couple on emulators, but it's been so many years since I've found an actual shiny on a legitimate copy.

My first shiny in this game is Geodude :) and I got a shiny buizel on the day after
Considering that i am still at the second badge, I was so surprised that I got a shiny this early

My first shiny was actually a Shiny Stantler, I did it because I hope to be able to transfer it to Legends Arceus when that comes out if possible, and use a Shiny Wyrdeer on my team. I was actually really lucky and got it only on my 10th Pokeradar chain.

I have never been a fan of the Radar for gathering shinies but I have reluctantly started learning to chain. Imagine my surprise when in a totally normal non-sparkling patch in a chain of THREE (3!!!) murkrow, I got one.

That was my first shiny in BDSP and my second full odds encounter ever :D

Likely my only shiny from this game is a Primeape I caught in the Grand Underground. By coincidence, it's the second one I have but the first I caught myself- the other is one I received in a Pokemon HOME Wonder Trade and that I was never able to figure out if it was legit or not. I may keep both, but at least I have one I know is the real deal.

I have not caught a Shiny Pokemon yet. I already have many Shiny Sinnoh Pokemon. I think one I don't have is Turtwig, so I may try to get one. But I also want to catch a Pachirisu since it doesn't show up in many games.

I also want a Drifloon and Riolu, but I may continue to do that in SwSh.

My first shiny was a Mareep! Followed by a Buneary, a few days ago. Got both of them through pokeradar chaining!
