Just caught my first shiny that wasn't an event one like Gyarados.

A female Luxray, in Platinum.

First encounter with one ever outside some action replay runs.

Fun fact is that I was trying to chain with the radar, forgot the repel and groaned as my Skitty chain was broken... just to see Luxray shine.

Luxray wild? Did you mean Luxio?

Congrats on the find!

Yeah, it was Luxio. Route 222, modest nature.

I've still never seen a Shiny other than Red Gyarados.

Ever.

I've been playing Pokemon for 14 years.

My first was Yellow. Got Red after that (oddly enough), then Crystal.

My game progression from that point onward was mostly normal.

I've been playing for 15 years and only saw 1 shiny in the wild - I believe it was a tentacool or tentacruel - and I killed it by accident. :-(

I got a shiny rattata in a playthrough of FR. At the time, I was thinking to myself "Maybe I should try to get a shiny legendary this time.. really rub that in my friend's fa- OH MY GOD A SHINY RATTATA WHAT" So I think it's kind of strange I was THINKING about shinies and got one.

Put it on My Pokemon Ranch on the Wii, and promptly corrupted the save file it was originally on, forever locking my shiny prize to the Wii's file. :( Oh well, it was just a rattata.

I've always wanted a shiny Ditto... did that pokemon chaining in Platinum... got Ditto chained up to 39 twice... no shinies.

Yep... been playing pokemon since the very beginning.. and thats all I've ever gotten. Hell I didn't even get the promo shiny legendaries from the recent gamestop events. Meh.
