I have a shiny Swampert on my Sapphire cart.

Still considering porting it to my Black 1 cart.

Ive never encountered one or hatched one and ive been playing since 97. Obviously they werent around in Gen I but Ive played all the games many, many times over and have never found one in the wild.

I've been fortunate to encounter and catch a shiny in every generation (although I've never got one from breeding)

Silver I got a shiny Hoothoot on the first route (and yes, I did have pokeballs)
I have to admit, I spent a lot of time post-game searching in the Narional Parl for a Pink Butterfree because of the what the girl says at the Lake Of Rage, I thought the Butterfree would've been another scripted shiny battle

Sapphire, got a shiny Poochyena outside Slateport while search for the respective Lati

Pearl, encountered a shiny Skorupi in the marshes (and I freaked out so much cause of the whole running thing)...kept my calm and caught that (was actually looking for a Skorupi with Sniper)

White and I got a shiny Audino from a shaking patch of grass while EV training

If you actually played Gold, SIlver or Crystal and it's remakes you should know about the Shiny Gyarados you can catch.

It was my first Shiny...and one of the few I caught to his Day.

Just more people who lack diligence and complain about it.

I have owned and played every Pokemon game to death, and I have never encountered a wild shiny ever.

If you've played Gen 2 games, then that's impossible, as encountering Shiny Gyrados is part of the plot.

Sadly, outside of that, I've never encountered a shiny.

Once a Zubut in my whole career, have played each gen many times.

Strangely, got Pokerus around 4-5 times.
Currently obsessed with - Yearnings of Wind.

Came in to say that I haven't - then encountered a shiny Golbat (I'm playing Black 2 atm) just as I clicked on the 'Post message' button!

Wish me luck!
