What was your first shiny 'mon? (Legit method only, no AR.)

The first one that I got was way back in Pokemon Silver, when I was hunting for a Pidgey I stumbled upon a Shiny Raticate. Needless to say even if I don't like Raticates that much, for the whole duration of the game I had him on my team and including Red Gyarados I had two shinies during that playthrough.

Ever since that day many many years ago, barring-Red Gyarados on my HG and SS playthrough of course, I have not found another shiny.

How about you guys?

Not counting the guaranteed ones like Red Gyarados, a Glameow in Pearl.

Shiny magnemite in Pokémon pearl. And not including soft resetting its the only wild shiny I've ever found, despite playing every gen, some even multiple times and never using a repel.

Graveler in Crystal version on the route south of Blackthorn City. Luckily it didnt explode.

A Blue Nidoking in Fire Red is what inspired my love for the Nido family as well as all poison types. Sadly, I lost him, but I plan to soon start mass breeding DW Nidos in hopes that I can see my old friend in glorious 3d.

Or just use Pokegen if all else fails :D

Still haven't caught a "true" shiny...8 games and hundreds of hours since they were introduced. The only shiny pokemon I have had were the Red Gyrados, the Haxorus in B2 and the legendary events going on now. Someday...someday...

I havent checked out the confirmed old pokemon list to appear in x and y (if there is one.) but I do hope we could catch a nidoran in X, nidoking is one of my favorite pokemons.:D
