I never saw one until Pokemon White. It was an Audino. Then on White 2, I saw shiny Mareep, Venipede, Patrat, and hatched a shiny Oshawott. I guess you just have to get lucky.

Been playing Pokemon for as long as I can remember and I have yet to encounter a wild, legitimate shiny.

On the serious side, I've captured a shiny Krabby in my (now dead) Silver and a shiny Remoraid in Diamond.

I too have never encountered a shiny other than the Red Gyarados. I have played at least one game in every Gen.

I've encountered 2 non scripted ones now. Caught them both. Latest was a shiny uxie thanks to the shiny charm!

Here is what I have to say about shiny Pokémon
1. I feel bad for people who have never gotten one. I was mad when I got my first shiny it was an aerodactyl and I hated the way it looked and just released it but luckily I also got an eevee and a pachirisu my two favorites.

2. why when people talk about shiny pokemon do they mention playing Gen I, you couldn't get shiny pokemon then so don't mention them because it makes you look dumb.

I've seen and caught the following shiny Pokemon: Zapdos - LG, Bibarel - Platinum, RNG egg hatched Bagon and Kabuto, Red Gyarados (who hasn't)... and that's about it.

I've seen a shiny Rhyhorn in Emerald before Gen 4 was released/announced but it was in the Safari Zone and the stupid thing fled..... What have been pretty cool to be one of the first to have a Gen 4 shiny....

I've also got a crapload of hacked shinies, but I don't count them.. the above mentioned are all legit (if you count the RNG eggs)
