So I've been playing since R/B and I had never seen a shiny, but I recently was hatching Bagons and bang. Green Bagon. My first shiny. Then I'm in some friend safaris and I encounter a shiny Growlithe and Frogadier... After I had hatched over 500 eggs on a shiny Froakie hunt.

Shiny Geodude in Pokemon Fire Red, the only shiny Pokemon I've caught without soft-resetting.

I soft-reset for shiny Drifloon in Pokemon Platinum, just to see if I could get it. After a few attempts, it appeared.

I've been playing since GSC (for about 12 years), and I've never gotten a shiny, until now. Got a shiny Ditto in Pokemon X's hidden garden three days ago. I was just about to start a chain using pokeradar, and this was the first one I got (so no higher chance to get one).

Funnily enough, a similar situation happened to me today. I was trying to catch Octillery for its suction cups ability in Azure bay to help with chain fishing. While trying to get one, I encountered and caught a shiny Corsola. (0 fishing chain so no increased chance on this one either)

My first shiny was a Kakuna that I caught in Pokemon Silver. Beedrill looks pretty cool, and I'm sad I can't transfer it up :(

Fracture in friend safari and I passed up on catching a noctowl in the pokemon village about two hours after that because I wasn't paying attention and i didn't even notice it was a shiny because it looks so similar to a regular still kicking my self

I'm gonna go with shiny Slugma in either Ruby or Sapphire. I know I saw a shiny Magnemite in Silver but I accidentally killed it with a Critical Hit Thief. And I know I also got a shiny Spearow in either Silver or Heart Gold but if it was Silver it was probably when I went back to that game after playing newer ones, and if it was Heart Gold it post-dates the Slugma anyway.
