So I was at the beginning of the game and I usually pick the fire types, in this case, a Cyndaquil. I kept resetting because I couldn't get the right nature. After only about 30 resets, I noticed the Totodile I highlighted was a different color. I was so excited because it was my first shiny Pokemon ever, though I was disappointing that whatever nature it had hindered its attack stat.
I've been a fan of this series since R/B/Y (Though shinies weren't introduced until G/S/C) and after about 12 years of playing these games, I finally have a legit shiny Pokemon.
This happened just a couple weeks ago and I finished the game and continued onto Black. I ran into another shiny Pokemon which was a Tympole. Even though I have no desire to raise it, my jaw dropped when I encountered it.
What was the first shiny Pokemon you've encountered? The red Gyarados doesn't count. --- Now I will kill you until you die from it...

My first shiny in HeartGold I never caught It was when I was training for Clair, and it was a graveler it trolled me hard too, I got it down to red, threw an ultra ball, broke out on the 3rd shake check the proceeded to blow up. --- Time... line? Time isn't made of lines! It is made of circles. That is why clocks are round.

First non-in-game/event Shiny was a shiny Ledyba on the original Silver version.
Of course I lost it when the damn battery in the game cartridge failed. --- OT: Black FC: 1721 2588 4695
