I remember my first Shiny I encountered was in White 1. I was in white forest and I talked to the lady who said she saw a Magby in the grass, I went looking to see if I could get one real quick before buying more powerful pokeballs and what would be the first pokemon to show itself?

A shiny magby! It looked so awesome...but I only have 1 regular pokeball

Now, obviously I didn't catch it, but if you could imagine my face when I threw my only pokeball and it shook TWICE before it popped back out...it looked something like this

Put in my old gold just to see my old pokes and the first pokemon I run into is a shiny metapod....and I had not a single pokeball...God was I stupid as a kid =|. I almost freaked out the same way and was about to break my ds when I ran into a shiny geodude about 15-20 mins into my play through on pearl. Right before I threw it I stopped and remembered they just gave me pokeballs.

I found a shiny Magikarp back in GSC and, unlike most of the stories here, I actually caught it. The sad part was that in my naive 8 year old mind I thought that a yellow Magikarp obviously meant that it would become a yellow Gyarados. My plan was to breed it with a blue Gyarados to make a green one and then again with the Lake of Rage Gyarados to make an orange one. Then I would have bred the offspring with the parents and each other and so forth until I had a motherf***ing army of incestuous, rainbow Gyarados. Boom! Instant coolest kid on the block status.

But then the damn thing turned out red and made me sad.

My sad shiny Pokemon story: I've played every iteration of the main series pokemon games and never come across a shiny pokemon (save that red Gyrados of course). :(

My brother's story is that his first one, a beige-and-purple Delibird in Silver, ran from him... he did catch a green Marill in Ruby, though.

...as opposed to an average game.

In the original Gold version I saw a Shiny Venonat on my way to the Lake of Rage and ran from it. Less than 5 minute later I was at the red Gyarados and realized what that sparkle meant.

Ignoring that it was on a ROM, a Shiny is a Shiny. My Shiny Weavile is Quiet, and my Shiny Swellow is Modest, but I don't care. Just the fact that they are Shinies that I myself found and caught makes it all worthwhile.

In Heart Gold I was training for the E4 in Victory Road and encountered a shiny Graveler. I had a Lanturn out and decided to switch out to Dragonair to use Dragon Rage to guarantee I wouldn't knock it out.

I forgot that Graveler had Selfdestruct :(
