When I was a child, the Root Fossil I got in Sapphire was resurrected as a shiny Lileep. When I checked its summary, I was like, "Why is its Pokedex number golden?" I was also curious why it sparkled in battle, and not seeing a Lileep before, I thought green was its normal color. Years later, I learned about shiny Pokemon, and found out that my Lileep was one.
I'm glad that my first shiny was a Pokemon just given to me; if it was a wild one, I probably would've fainted it. Years later, it's now a pink Cradily residing in my HeartGold.

My first shiny was on Sapphire version. Found a golden Vulpix on MT. Pyre and immediately fell in love with it. I caught it and still have it to this day.

I had the misfortune of seeing a shiny Chansey in Fire Red's battle tower, and a shiny Exeggcute in the Safari Zone that ran away. Finally, I got to catch a blue Psyduck on one of the Sevii Islands. I was playing in class and everyone gathered around since they had never seen a shiny. Pretty exciting.

FireRed- Psyduck


Diamond- Budew, Fearow

Platinum- Staraptor

SoulSilver- Tentacruel

Black 2- Tynamow

I've also gotten 3 random shinies off of the GTS.

Other than the shiny red Gyarados in Pokémon Gold and Crystal Versions, there may be one other shiny Pokémon that I found (I don't know if I caught it) but I don't remember what it was and what game I was playing (probably Ruby or Diamond).

Mine was, almost unbelievably; a Shiny Dratini in Gold. It was the very first Dratini I encountered.

I actually didn't know she was Shiny because I figured the little sparkle was just Gamefreak acknowledging that Dratini was special (I accidentally killed the Red Gyarados which I had forgotten about).

I didn't realize something was up until I had a Green Dragonite.

Gyarados in the Lake of Rage...
Then a Teddiursa in Mt. Silver.
I decided it was a good idea to "weaken" it before catching it...
"Critical hit!"
Dang crits.

The other two Shinies I got were...
Another Red Gyarados (second file of SoulSilver)
A Shiny Dratini (White Treehollow)
And a Shiny Haxorus (Nature Preserve).

Tentacool in Emerald when I was in the 6/7th grade. I was on my way to mt Prye for a Chimecho and I encounter it. I played Gold so i knew about the Red Gyarados but I thought that was special. My friend told me about Pokerus so i thought it had it and that is how pokemon with pokerus look. So I caught it and now I know it is a shiny.
