I have yet to see a shiny in game, despite having over 9000 battles and encounters that could have a shiny and several hundred eggs produced and hatched with the masuda effect in place.

And yes, this thread has been made before.

My first shiny. I was on a cruise ship in Egypt. Sapphire, Victory Road. I was wandering around there aimlessly.

Boom, shiny Crobat. I thought it was a virus. I turned my GBSP off and didnt touch it for the next few days.

lol Virus Crobat seems like a cool storyline for a creepypasta. X3

My first shiny Encounter was in Silver. No, it wasn't the Red Gyarados.
I remember walking on that first Route from New Bark to that other town. I had my level 5 Cyndaquil with me. I step into the grass and encounter a Pokemon. I'm like, "Aww crap."
When the battle starts I hear a shining noise and see the stars with a Shiny Hoothoot. At first, I didn't know what it was, since shinies had just debuted that Gen. So i fainted it then left on to that first town/city. I had no balls so what was I s'posed to do? D:

After that, I've encountered more shinies. :v
Sometimes I put too much effort into getting Shinies....

Shiny Graveler, Mt. Coronet. It used explosion ._.
I also found a blue Unown and a red Gyarados pink Mareep in Silver/Crystal.
In Sapphire, I found a light blue Shuppet on Mt. Pyre while Chimecho hunting.

My first shiny was a shiny Golbat in Emerald, which I caught and was excited about. In the same game, I encountered a shiny Graveler, which sadly, used Explosion. In Platinum, I encountered several shiny Pokémon: Pikachu, Staravia and Roselia.

Brings back memories.

I was fishing for Wailmer on Sapphire, but instead of a Wailmer I got a Magikarp. A Magikarp that was golden. I caught it, of course, and transferred it to Diamond, where it evolved, and then it was traded to Platinum, and then HG/SS came out and it was worthless. T_T

I also found a shiny on Five Island on FireRed. 'Twas a shiny Pidgeotto! I lost it a while ago, I have no idea where it went... The Pidgeotto, not the FireRed. :I

I've only encountered two non-event shinies. First was an Abra in Crystal, I knew it'd teleport so I actually contemplated using my Master Ball (which I never use anymore, only collect), but instead I took the risk of using a Quick Ball and got it! Wish it was a current gen game so it'd actually feel worthwhile raising.

Second was a shiny Mr. Mime in the Safari Zone of HeartGold. I knew every turn was precious, so I skipped the food and bait and focused on simply throwing Safari Balls. Threw one, it got out after one shake... and ran. ****ing Hell. Right after that, I encountered a regular Mr. Mime and caught it with just one ball. So tragic.

I've had a shiny ecounter in every pokemon game I own

In Diamond I found a shiny Sneasal.

In Ruby I found a shiny Clampearl.

In platinum I found a shiny Gastly.

In Heart Gold I found a shiny Caterpe

I wonder if I'll encounter one in my copy of Black.

I did the Masuda method without knowing and ended up with a shiny Togepi. He's now a level 100 Togekiss. :D
I got a shiny Raichu off of the GTS and my dad traded me a shiny Golbat. (and a shiny Rapidash in Crystal) My only other shinies are events/Lake of Rage Gyarados.

Really cool shiny I found in Black. Ran into a shiny Boldore while making my way through Twist Mountain. Quite a find. It's been a while since I caught something so rare.
