I just caught my first shiny!

I wasn't even attempting to get one, I was just going through all my friend's safaris to see what they had, and I randomly ran into a blue Swalot. To be fair, I don't much like the pokemon and I nearly ran from it because I wasn't sure if it was it's default color or not, but I was a bit suspicious. Something told me that it should be either green or purple, so I just caught it and sorted it out after. A quick look through my pokedex told me it was indeed shiny, I didn't check the stats yet but that I caught it in the safari suggest it will at least not be terrible.

The only other shiny I ever caught was in an emulator so I can't really count that one, but I can now officially say I've gotten my first shiny...a Swalot.

I've been catching shinies since gen 2. Get on my level or don't brag about your lame ass swalot, which isn't even a cool pokemon.

Congratulations though.

Yeah I got one before from some guy who had one and was adding a ton of people. I don't really care anymore though since I got soooo bored of IV breeding after doing it once.

My first shiny was a Magnemite that I traded over from my brother's Emerald game. He nor I had no idea it was a shiny until I traded it over! My first self-caught shiny was a Staravia, while EV training in Diamond. My third shiny, which I literally just caught a half-hour ago, was a Horsea, while doing consecutive fishing.

I gave mine out to about 500 people when I found out I had it, I got a few shinies and perfectly bred pokemon from generous people but this is the first shiny I've actually encountered. I enjoy breeding myself, but I'll give the Pokeradar and fishing strategy a shot sometime.
