A Few.

An Oddish (emerald), a Volbeat (Black), and a Paras(Heart gold) of questionable authenticity(The Paras, I mean.), also A Gyarados or two from Heart gold, though as you encounter it as part of the storyline, there's not much to brag about. Aside from the fact that it's a Gyarados.

And when I manage to bring myself back into Black 2's Gargantuan Post-Game, I dare say A Gible and a Haxorus shall be added to that list. :)

I've also managed to find Pokerus.

I've caught many, MANY shinies. Far too many to name (190 to be precise). I started hunting them back in 2007.

My first shiny was a Clefairy in the Leaf Green game corner on the 14th March 2007, and my latest shiny was a shiny Tympole in Black 2, on the 15th January, that took about 58 eggs (but I did get the shiny charm in B2, so the odds of finding a shiny in that game went up).

My latest shiny with the normal 1/8192 odds was a shiny Pawniard in White 2 on the 8th January, who took 11,740 encounters to appear.

I currently have four main shiny targets that I'm hunting: a badge quest shiny in White 2 (a badge quest is where you have to capture a shiny before defeating each gym leader) currently at 8737 encounters; a shiny Thundurus in White, currently at 3600 soft resets; a shiny Solosis in Black 2, currently at 320 eggs hatched; and a badge quest shiny in Heart Gold... currently at 29,200 encounters - it's my longest ever hunt >_> (where I've bothered keeping count).
I am a Yaoi fangirl! ^_^
I'm also a shiny hunter, behold my shiny Pokemon:http://www.youtube.com/user/TheFriendlyBee?feature=mhee
