Not counting Scripted shinies or the odd egg then my first shiny is Skarmory i hatched it in 3rd gen so a 1/8192 chance one. I still remember being in shock for a few minutes before moving and showing my brother (who had just gotten pokerus in one of his 3rd gen games) what i had just hatched. --- Lights will guide you home
roselia in Diamond, i s**t a brick and ran around the house for five minutes and caught it, then i started my shiny collection..... hurhurhur <---Ped laugh --- B2 FC - 3869-6069-8826 No WiFi = no trades :'-(
I can't remember what the first shiny I had caught was, but the first one I had seen was a Beedrill in the Silver Bug Catching Contest. It ran away. ='(
That same game saw me eventually catch a shiny Larvitar which I foolishly traded away (dur, because I already own a Larvitar, dur!). So I don't remember what came between.
EDIT: I forgot to add that I saw that Beedrill while playing on the original GameBoy. --- "Help! Help! They've destroyed my cousin's brain!! Oh, my god! They've already milked you, haven't they?!!" -- Phoncible P. Bone
Shiny Butterfree was my first. Silver, I believe. Then I found a Raticate in the same game. Being a naive little kid, I made a PC Box dedicated to my found shinies thinking that they weren't THAT rare...
...My next Non-Evented Shiny was about 10 years later, a shiny Klink in Black 2 after finally getting the Shiny Charm. I seem to have knack for finding Shinies of Pokémon that I dislike in general. Until I found a Shiny Litwick half a week later, that is! He's a cool new Chandelure I like to call Pyro Pyro Jack for his coloration now. =-) --- Sig is under construction and will be added when I think of something witty. Or incredibly stupid.
In the Safari Zone in LeafGreen, I caught a shiny Nidoran Female. Considering that I could not use Master Balls, it was lucky that it stayed in the Safari Ball. --- Pokemon White 2 - 4642-6775-0048 http://www.youtube.com/PokeJMTL
