What was your first legitimate shiny?

Golbat in Victory Road, Pokemond Diamond 5 years ago. Still my one and only random encounter shiny, although I have about 10 Pokeradar ones. But Golbat will always be special :) one of my favorite moments in gaming.

Mine was a blue Psyduck in Sapphire's Safari Zone. I was actually able to catch it, surprisingly.

If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.

Brown Paras in Gold.

Shortly followed by a blue Nidorino in Silver.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

The first shiny I ever caught was a Golbat in Sapphire's Meteor Falls back in 2004.

First I found, though, was a Poliwag in Crystal back in 2001. I ran from it, thinking I could find it again. Needless to say I fished for a good while with no results :P

I'm assuming we aren't counting the Red Gyrados from Lake of Rage in Silver, Gold, and Crystal so mine would be a Magby hatched from the egg given by the Daycare Couple in Crystal

Snubbull in Silver that I proceeded to 1 hit.
First one I caught was either Weedle in LeafGreen or Girafarig in Emerald. I THINK it was Weedle.

Electrike in Emerald - I didn't really realise the relevance of it and eventually restarted..

Dugtrio in Platinum - didn't have anything weak enough on me to not one-hit it - was still pretty noobish back then (I always carry a catcher with me now post-game).

First one I actually caught was a Raticate whilst EV training in SoulSilver - almost didn't notice as it's a similar colour and was doing whilst watching TV :P
