I bumped into a shiny Zebstrika while training, and I looked away from the screen for some reason before I saw the shine sparkle, so I never realized what I was actually fighting or that I had fought such a thing until I looked up the various Pokemon forms I had seen in the Pokedex at the 200 hour mark and looked at its forms... "Hey, when did I see a shiny Zebstrika? (realize)...nuts".
Who knows how long ago I bumped into it...

In Platinum, I was breeding for a shiny Chimchar. After many many eggs, no shiny had come. Then my friend who had chosen Piplup asked for a Chimchar egg to help with his Pokedex. I had plenty so I just handed one over. He hatches it about 30 minutes later and of course it hatches him a SHINY FREAKING CHIMCHAR! I was so mad. But happy that he had just gotten his first shiny.
In the end though, I learned to RNG and got a nearly perfect shiny Chimchar with about an hour of work, so it worked out for the better. :)

Ok my sad shiny tale... I lost a shiny Houndour in platinum. I was just going along playing the game and it showed up with the d'ling ling shiny sound and i was... shocked. I didn't know Houndour had roar and so it used that and i was annoyed. I didn't have any sleep user or any other pokemon that could've stopped roar on my team at the time as i hadn't completed the game yet and so wasn't prepared for shiny hunting.
It isn't too sad though because i managed to chain Houndour with the pokeradar and captured three shinies from the chain before i accidentally broke it so in a way i reclaimed the one that got away and got a bonus two.
R/S: killed a shiny hariyama D/P: burned a shiny azumarill, then it died because it didn't wanna go in my ultra ball HG/SS: had level 100 pokes vs a shiny level 40ish ponyta and killed it because my moves were too OP :(
