Didn't see my first non-event shiny until last summer.

When I spent about a week straight on Soulsilver, hatching almost 500 eggs, to get a shiny Ralts--and even then, not being sure if it would be female, because a male Gardevoir would have been weird (I didn't know about Gallade yet.)
I was doing the typical routine: ride my bike until either an egg hatched or got a call about a new egg, while watching TV. Then one day, while watching 3rd Rock from the Sun, I just happened to look down during the standard egg hatch sequence and noticed "Oh my god, this Ralts is blue, and not green."

Seriously, for a second, I thought my perception of color had gone wrong from seeing so many Raltses, but it had a red star and was female, so I affectionately named her Rinoa, and along with my Typhlosion, she was my main partner for the entire remainder of my adventure in Johto.

Charmander from RBY.

I traded it over to my Silver early, and all of a sudden it wasn't the correct color. I thought my game may have been glitched or screwed up and almost restarted, had it not been for a friend who said I should keep it just in case.

Then I saw Red Gyarados and was like... Well they could have gotten to this way sooner.

At least some of you get to see shiny pokemon. I'd rather encounter one and not capture it than never see one through hundreds of hours of gameplay.

I swear, I'm actually starting to believe "shiny pokemon" is the most elaborate joint trolling effort ever devised by Nintendo, red gyarados, and millions of players all just for me to look like a fool for the past 12 years.
