Mine was in emerald, I was like 12. It was a whismur, I got scared so I asked my mother what was going on. She said the game glitched and to reset it. So I never caught it and many years later on...I found out it was shiny. My only shiny! Gone! What was yours?

Nothing special, the Red Gyarados from Gold/Silver/Crystal (then later HG/SS). I've caught a few (and even lost one) since then.
TC, I'm not surprised you had that reaction, with your first experience - if you did not play the game with the introduction to shiny Pokemon before your first random chance encounter, of course you would react the way you did.
