Gyarados in the Lake of Rage.

I ran into a suicidal Geodude in Gold and a Murkrow that I caught in Gold or Silver, whichever one was the version exclusive. Those are the only three shinies I've ever encountered.

There are three shinies programmed into the trainer's teams at Trainer Hill in FR/LG. I didn't know this. When I first encountered them, I was steaming.

I got soaked. I couldn't control it haha. I got scared honestly.

Besides Gyarados, the only shiny Pokemon I've ever encountered is a Drowzee near the day care center in Pokemon Gold. I don't remember if that was before or after getting Red Gyarados.

Was fishing in Emerald a few years ago trying to get god knows what when lo and behold, a shiny Magikarp, of all things.

He must never evolve. Ever.

Not counting the obvious one, I had a shiny Teddiursa in SoulSilver. Named him Ursagreen.

I was young. Pokemon Gold was still new. Rather early in the game (Sprout Tower?) I saw a shiny/blue Gastly. I didn't realize the significance though--it's not like I had seen the Red Gyarados yet, I knew they had introduced sexes so I thought it was just how female Gastlys looked, and I was young. So I knocked it out.

It. Is. The. Only. Shiny. I've. Ever. Seen.

Oddish, Zubat, Starly, Noctowl, Shinx, and Machop.

Zubat was the first I believe. I honestly, did'nt give a ****.
My little cousin however, who might have been 6 or 7. Found a Shiny Giratina after about 4 resets and he killed it lol.

Shiny Beedrill in the bug catching contest in Gold...

It did not end well...

After that was a Shiny Xatu in Emerald's Safari Zone...

That one did end well! :D
