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

Planning to name it Zira. Always liked her better than Scar anyway...

That is definitely some bad luck if you only just now found one. I have played since blue and my first was in sapphire... with quite a few since then. What are your playing habits though? Usually I encounter them while level grinding or ev training.

Not really much of an EV-trainer(and I normally use the VS seeker, anyway), and I never quite grind unless the level jumps are too ridiculous.

So yeah, my only shot at meeting them is usually just when trying to catch mons or when running through.

The first shiny I ever caught was Ho-Oh in my first playthrough of Gold Version. I deleted the save, not understanding what shinies were at the time ;_;

I've gotten 3 non-guaranteed shinies. The sucky part is two of them are Geodude and Graveler :/
Why do people... betray one another? They might as well... all just die instead.

I have caught two shinies that weren't from a AR or events, the first one was a Medicham, while the second one was a Graveler, both were from Diamond

Never got a shiny, seen 1 but had no pokeballs :{ shame on me
#20BoogeyMan17Posted 9/26/2013 9:27:56 AM
Me, myself have never ran into a shiny Pokémon in the wild. the only Shinies I've ever owned were the Red Gyrados you see in the events in the game. Never in the wild in the grass areas.
