A purple Drowzee in Gold. I was training a Flaaffy there, and its Headbutt would always bring the Pokemon into capture range. Of course, I got a critical hit. Despite clocking up I would say easily 1000 hours into subsequent games, the only shiny I've ever had besides the Red Gyarados was a friggin' Hoothoot in HGSS. Sucks.
Official [nobody cares] of the [your favourite game here] board.
The Red Gyarados aside, I have encountered 2 shiny Pokemon. The first one was a shiny Fearow I encountered in Platinum while I was EV training one of my Pokemon for speed and I was able to capture it. The other was a Deerling in Black which I found pretty early on in the game and was able to capture.
