A simple and brief poll. Have YOU ever caught or encountered a shiny Pokemon?

I once had two shiny Pokemon, which were Delibird and Tentacool. Unfortunately, both are gone now.

I've also had a Salamence catch Pokerus, which was really awesome. I still have the Salamence, and it's now one of my main battling Pokemon.

Other than the four scripted shinies, I have a shiny Raticate from Black 2 that evolved from a Rattata. I also have a shiny Chemico (sp?) that I got in Platinum and that evolved from a Chingling.

I encountered and caught a shiny Zigzagoon in Sapphire, but I no longer have it. There is also the shiny Mareep and I found that on my cousin’s Silver version, but I don't have that either anymore. Also, I'm not sure if it counts, because I did not officially catch it. My cousin gave me his Silver version, and when I booted it up, I found that he had the Pokémon.
You know you read too much when you dream about flying books.

Shiny Spearow while grinding a bit in FireRed and a shiny Nidoran while in the Safari game in FireRed :)

Those are just my encounters though, through trades I have boxes full of slhinies. Some are probably fake but I'm sure the majority are legit.

Yes, close to a dozen. I still have 2, a Gigalith and a Shinx. The rest I traded.

I've encountered 2.

One was either a Rhyhorn or Rhydon way back on Pokemon Gold.

The other was Shaymin from Pokemon Diamond. Wasn't even trying to get him shiny but he was shiny my very first battle. (Also the only 1 of the 2 I caught)

With the exception of Gyarados and events....I've had to hatch all mine.

in order of encounter,
shiny sunkern in Gold, during the bug catching contest. iirc I assumed the shining would make it worth more so I ended the contest and lost.. but at least I got my shiny :)
Shinin' pidgey in LeafGreen. Was annoyed that the game threw that as my only shiny, so killed it.
Shinin' zubat in White2. caught it.
Shinin' mewtwo in FR. caught it...
and that's not including the ones I've RNG'd
