What is the luckiest you've been with shinies?

This isn't a question of shinies you've gotten by chaining or MM breeding (Unless you got a shiny in the first few eggs).It's a question of your luckiest shiny encounters by random chance in the wild.

As for me,In HG I found a shiny Ratatta in the sprout tower and then found a shiny Wooper in the very next route after violet city (can't remember the name).Later in,the same playthrough,I found a shiny growlithe outside the safari zone.

In Platinum,I found a shiny Giratina after only a couple hundred Soft resets.I know it's not exactly random but it's still lucky.

And finally.just yesterday,I found a shiny Rayquaza with a jolly nature and the following IVs:7/31/14/29/25/31.The luckiest part is that I wasn't even soft resetting,I was just finishing up my Soul Silver playthrough when I found it.I've already EV trained it and soon I'll be transferring it to my Black 2 and then my copy of Y.

I'm interested to hear how fortunate you've been with random shiny encounters.

I haven't, really.

Gen 2, a Yanma, back when it sucked.
Gen 4, a Kricketune which looked awesome, but was... well, A KRICKETUNE. Also a safari zone blue Psyduck, which I did wind up using, but it had Damp and not Cloud Nine. :(
Gen 5, only shiny I had was a Watchog from GTS. ;_;

Either a shiny Exeggcute in the safari zone, which, thankfully, didn't run away, or a shiny Graveler that I encountered while partnered with Riley in Platinum which by some minor miracle, didn't get knocked out by his Lucario or selfdestruct.
