Aside from guaranteed shinnies I've only ever seen and caught one. Back in the original Gold, my Raikou was a shiny. I didn't know what it was at the time. Just that it sparkled and was a different color than my friend's. Haven't seen one since.
I have a bad connection on reality. Every time I log in I lag terribly, and I'm often disconnected.

Shiny Parasect in FireRed, I'm kind lucky because I caught her in the safari zone and she could've ran away, I still have her on black 2.

I've only ever seen one, and it was a geodude.

To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.

I've encountered at least 22 shinies over the course of my journeys.
This is why you don't use Repels :p

I have never encountered a shiny, except for a few months ago, when I caught a shiny starly. I was so excited.
Pokemon red and blue suck.

I've technically never ENCOUNTERED a shiny.

The girl at the beginning of BW gave me a shiny Pansage, though.

ETA: Aside from the Gyarados, clearly.

Nope. Unless you count the two abominations from the lake of rage (old gold and new gold).

My brother hasn't.I didn't until Diamond,and I've never saw one since.Good thing I was able to catch it.I didn't even know they existed until then.

Also didn't know about Pokerus until I got a Lucario through GTS that had it once.I'm apparently not as fortunate as some people.
Kingdom Hearts 3! I knew there was a reason to keep watching! :D
