This poll is now closed.
This is excluding predetermined shinies (e.g. the G/S/C/HG/SS Gyarados or B2/W2 shiny dragons). I was kind of curious, since I've been playing since Generation I and the first shiny I got was in Black. Of course, it was a modest Larvitar, of all things. :/

Anyway, I just wanted to gauge the luck of people here.

I haven't seen a shiny since FireRed.

I'd say it averages at about 1-2 caught per generation. I do get more through trades though.

I've caught a Shiny Wurmple in Gen 3, a Shiny Golbat in HG, a shiny Graveller in Platinum, and a shiny Pidove in Black. So yeah, a fair few.

On average?

Well, 2 in gen 2
3 in gen 3
4th gen doesn't count because of that stupid radar thing.
5th gen... I forget, but I got a couple.

So I think 3 suits me.

2.33 for those specific people.

A shiny Wingull in Emerald is the the only wild shiny I ever saw, and I've played through at least one game out of every generation so far.

I voted 1-2, but really, I had more. TC didn't mention if we had to exclude the Mandatoriy ones (Such as red gyarados) and/or events, because in each case, I got a lot more, or a lot less shinies.

I got a Shiny poochyena in Emerald and a Shiny azurill in Pearl

However, if we count event/unmissables...

-I got the Red Gyarados in every version it appeared (so that makes 5 games)
-I got 5 of each legendary beasts through events (I've had all 5 versions at that time, so one for each version, for a total of 5 of each)

So really, if we count those, I really should have voted I've had 6 on average... Look! I can make a post AFTER the last post!!!!!
