I have never once seen a shiny in the wild and have played every main story Pokemon game, am I just unlucky?

Generation III remakes are coming this gen. Get over it.

I've caught a shiny Scyther, Ekans, Tentacool and Rattata in Silver and Crystal, another shiny Tentacool and Gloom in Sapphire, a shiny Buneary in Platinum and another shiny Rattata in SS.
Just cos you feel it doesn't mean it's there

I've been playing since gen 1 and I just encountered and caught my first shiny today. It was only a Basculin, but still pretty exciting.

First shiny ever was Swadloon two days ago. Best day of Pokemon ever.

Same situation here, TC. Played at least one version of each main game, clocked at least 150 hours on each version, and I've never seen a shiny Pokemon once in my life, except for the Red Gyarados.

smh so frustrating. I haven't used a Masterball in years, because on every game I get I save it in case I encounter a shiny. Which hasn't happened >_<

Black 2 has given me 3 wild shinies:

The first one was a Watchog
The second one was a Goldeen I accidentally traded on the GTS
The third and last was a Patrat.

I haven't started breeding yet for the egg and evolution medals, I expect to get several shinnies from breeding, I already have the Shiny Charm, but I didn't have it when I found Watchog and Goldeen.

Black gave several shinnies too, a Metagross in Giant Chasm, a Nodoran-F, an Axew by breeding.

SS didn't gave me a shiny aside the red Gyarados.

Platinum, I found 2 shiny Unown, the first one was the "C" and the second was the "W" then I Pokéradared hundreds of shinnies that I traded for shinnies I didn't have.

Pearl and Diamond, well, I didn't like those games so, I didn't played them much, no shinies there.

Emerald, several shinnies too, a semi-legit Timid Mew with decent IV's, and Voltorb if I'm not mistaken, but I know I found a blue Voltorb in one of my games.

Crystal gave me a Shiny Magikarp a few steps away from the Red Gyarados -_-

not since silver

and that was 8 or 9 years ago

can't remember what it was but it was on the same route as the guy who wants to sell you a slowpoke tail
