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 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...
