Mine was in emerald, I was like 12. It was a whismur, I got scared so I asked my mother what was going on. She said the game glitched and to reset it. So I never caught it and many years later on...I found out it was shiny. My only shiny! Gone!

Nothing special, the Red Gyarados from Gold/Silver/Crystal (then later HG/SS). I've caught a few (and even lost one) since then.

TC, I'm not surprised you had that reaction, with your first experience - if you did not play the game with the introduction to shiny Pokemon before your first random chance encounter, of course you would react the way you did.

Gyarados in the Lake of Rage.

I ran into a suicidal Geodude in Gold and a Murkrow that I caught in Gold or Silver, whichever one was the version exclusive. Those are the only three shinies I've ever encountered.

There are three shinies programmed into the trainer's teams at Trainer Hill in FR/LG. I didn't know this. When I first encountered them, I was steaming.
