What was your first legitimate shiny?

My first ever shiny was a shiny Tropius in Sapphire. I was freaked out because I only had, like, 2 Ultra Balls left, and I really didn't want to attack it out of fear of a critical hit, so I just launched the first Ultra Ball while he was at full health and caught it anyway.

My very first shiny pkmn was a Rattata in Gold. My file was corrupted for some reason so i had to start over and i encountered her in the game early after the 1st gym. Odd thing is my Silver and Crystal cartridges have dead batteries but my Gold still works.

My first ever was actually a shiny Zigzagoon that my brother found while playing my game as we were stuck in a church after hours with no one around except our dad and nothing to do. We had been alternating time on the game to try to find a shiny prior to DP coming out.

The first I found myself was a shiny Calm-natured Noctowl in my Pearl version with pretty decent stats.

But since then, I've caught 6 other non-scripted shinies. (And I've never even tried Pokéradar chaining or breeding with foreign Pokémon.) Graveler (Pearl), Lickitung and Eevee (from Bebe) and Feebas (Platinum), and Klink and Krokorok (White). And no Master Balls were ever used :3 (I still to this day wonder how I managed to catch that shiny Graveler without it exploding on me.)

Never owned a legit shiny... I've played this game for 8 years. One time my 8 yr old brother gave me his gba to get through a cave in ruby, first golbat I run into was a shiny. He won't give it to me. It doesn't help that that's his 5th legit one. D:<
