What was your first shiny experience!?

Outside of scripted shiny events, I've only seen shinies in battle facilities.

Pidove, just a couple of months ago. Nothing special but a shiny is a shiny
Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

Red Gyarados is the closest I've gotten to even seeing a non-standard color in the wild. Conversely, I've gotten the Pokérus four or five times despite it supposedly being only a third as likely as finding a shiny.

I saw the shiny Espeon in the tower in FR/LG and that's how I found out about shinies in the first place. Then I encountered a shiny Natu and was like =O. Fortunately, I managed to catch it.

Not counting Gyarados, it was a shiny Tentacool in either Silver or Crystal.

This was before I knew there were other shinies besides Gyarados so I thought my game was going screwy. Luckily I decided to catch it anyways. Afterwards, I looked up on the internet about it and found out shinies existed for all of the other Pokemon as well

Tentacool on FireRed. Not counting the Gyarados from the previous games.

Used my one and only netball in the game lol (Netball can't be find on that game I think, traded it from R/S either of the two can't remember much.

Ran into a Shiny Machop in Fire Red, failed to catch it.
#40KajagogoPosted 2/1/2013 3:48:19 AM
Female Machoke... -_- I actually ended up getting rid of it.

Second one was a Ponyta, and I was so stoaked but I didn't have a lot of pokeballs and all of my pokemon were at too high of a level to not knock it out in one hit. I was devistated when it broke out of all my attemps to catch it. That's why I make sure to always fave pleny of quick, dusk, timer and level balls with me at all time.
