I purposely bred a shiny Ralts (luckily female, because a male Gardevoir is weird) with the Masuda method, and I plan to bring my Rinoa (and my Flaire) to whatever region in which this game is set once my journey has been finished with the standard Pokemon with which this game provides me.

Ok my first shiny was a shiny tyrogue from the odd egg in crystal but if that doesn't count then my first shiny is a skarmory i hatched on one of my gen III games. Skarmory was a 1/8192 chance one too as in gen III masuda method didn't exist so i was very shocked it hatched.

first shiny was a purple wurmple in emerald version.... didnt know what a shiny was back then.... caught it because at first i thought my eyes were playin tricks on me or i had went colorblind or somethin................... i regret starting over before trading it over
I've encountered plenty, but I can't remember what my first one was. (Possibly Red Gyarados.) Excluding Gen 2 (due to my crappy memory, I'm sure I got at least 1 non-Red Gyarados shiny in it), my first was a Zubat from Granite Cave in Sapphire, but the game was stolen. My first after that was a Hariyama from Victory Road in another Sapphire. Aside from that, I've caught, in no particular order:
Slowpoke (Leafgreen) Smeargle (Emerald) Spinda (Emerald) Numel (Emerald) Abra (Emerald) Zubat (a second one, LeafGreen) Golbat (Emerald) Shuppet (Emerald) Kricketot (Diamond) Mamoswine (Black) Nidoran Female (bred in Black, Japanese mother, though I wasn't aiming for a shiny.)
In addition to that, I had the misfortune of running into a wild shiny Growlithe in Emerald's Battle Pyramid. (Took me a long time to get over that.) And have traded for many on the GTS, including likely legitimate Mamoswine, Manectric, Tentacruel, Pawniard and Slugma, and traded for a legitimate Oddish IRL.
Promos and event pokemon aside, my first wild shiny was a Vullaby. At the time I was building an all Dark-type team to be my first actual E4 team in Black 1. Alder was a pain in my behind most certainly.
