What was your first legitimate shiny?

First seen was a Numel my friend caught on his Sapphire.
My first(other than red Gyrados) was a Litwick in the Celestial Tower. On my first play-through on White, and my first time seeing a Litwick in-game.

Caught a Shiny Graveler in Mt. Stark on Diamond, back in 2008. I was lucky it didn't explode on me.

I've yet to ever encounter another one again.

Still my only shiny, was Pidgey in Fire Red.

Here's the twist, it was a nuzlocke run and also the first pokemon in the route I found it in, meaning it was within the rules of the run to catch it.

Let me make this crystal clear; Ruby and Sapphire remakes are coming this generation (gen 5). Get the hell over it.

I chained a few in Diamond (First was Cubone), still have never found a legit random shiny though.

The earliest one I remember is a goldeen in leafgreen. Since then I have caught
Beedrill-viridian forest-ss
Gligae-route 11-b2
Rattata-route 39-hg

I may have seen them before knowing what shinies were but I doubt it because I learned soon after I started playing.

The fact that you would even consider not catching a shiny, over Nuzlocke rules, boggles my mind.

Jigglypuff in platinum. I barely noticed it...the eyes are just slightly different. I also caught it in safari zone or whatever it was called in plat, surprised I caught it without it running.

First shiny was a zubat when I was hunting gible in Pearl


Second shiny.... Was a zubat. IN THE SAFARI ZONE.


Don't know what the chances of your second shiny being the same as the first, but to also encounter it in a place where they could run away. It was torture.

I've played since Gen 1 and the first I remember was a shiny Donphan in HeartGold. Bit sad really.
