Yes, i have. Throughout my life time of Pokemon, i'm guessing around 6 shiny Pokemon in total have been lucky enough to be found. Only remaining one i have is a shiny Hoothoot i caught in Soul Silver, but i do remember my iconic shiny Dusclops i found in Ruby (which is long gone).

Share your stories or just simply vote yes or no.

By the way, SHINY GYARADOS DOES NOT COUNT. Or Haxorus, or any free shiny given by the game. Random encounters only.

Does Gyarados count?

Also, has anyone had any luck in shiny hunting? I want to soft reset for a Shiny Suicune, but i know how much patience is required to do this. Anyone wanna do a competition?

Not including Gyarados, my first shiny ever was a Mothim in one of the early games, cant remember which. Then I got a shiny Ponyta in FireRed. That's it.

Yeah, I've encountered several:

Ho-Oh (soft reset)
Spinarak (hatched)
Shuckle (hatched)

And the mandatory Gyarados and Haxorus. I seem to encounter shinies somewhat often (compared to others at least), which is kinda a shame I guess since I'm not terribly fond of shinies.

Shiny Diglett was my first in LeafGreen but its long gone since one of my family members started a new game without my permission, grrrrrrr! I managed to catch a shiny Magikarp in Sapphire while fishing for Feebas and caught two shiny Weepinbells in Pearl consecutively which was UBER lucky.

It would probably been a good idea to mention that Fixed Shinies (Red Gyarados, Shiny Dratini/Gible) don't count. *unless you happen to encounter an actual shiny Dratini*

Yes, but only once in my entire time, and it was an Oddish in Pokémon Emerald. In all honesty I didn't expect it since I never even heard of shiny Pokémon, thought they were a rumor and never bothered to look it up, until I found my shiny Oddish :).

So yeah, that was mine. Forgot exactly where I did, but I was actually looking for a roaming legendary that should have been there.
