Has anyone never encountered a shiny?

Yup. My random shiny count is 34.

One in Gold, which was a Rattata really early in the game.

The other one was a Minccino in Black.

Played since first gen and never got one except for red gary.

I wonder if there is anyone who has only encountered a shiny magicarp. That would suck lol

The only one I've ever found was a Rattatta before you get pokeballs so I had to kill it.

Played every main game since gen 1, excluding Black/White.

i have played at least one game from each gen (though not B/W 2) and if i have seen a shiny, it mustve been when i was 5, because i dont remember seeing one since.

I have never encountered a random, wild shiny. I also use repels all the time, so I'm perfectly fine with that trade off.

I found a shiny onix during a run of diamond, but then I got a critical hit and knocked it out D:

Aside from Red Gyarados, nope.

Same, even though I've been playing since RBY. :(
At one point, I even attempted to soft reset for Shiny Mewtwo in Firered for probably a month or two, but to no avail. Ah, how the fates are so cruel....

I once saw(and caught) a purple cubchoo in White. Then traded for a legendary.
