The first that I ever encountered was a shiny Cacturne in Pokemon Pearl (which I used the master ball to capture it). I also caught a shiny Machoke in Pokemon Platinum and a shiny Abra in Pokemon Soul Silver.

I was actually surprised when I saw them considering I had never encountered a shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Blue, Silver, Ruby, Emerald, or Fire Red. That is, unless I encountered one, but failed to recognize it, and instead made it faint or ran away.

No, I've gotten lucky quite a few times, but I'm stupid so I always reset my games without trading. For example, one time I got a shiny tepig without even trying, and while I ruined it by using it during the main run of the game, it's blue flames looked awesome. I had a few others too, I believe I had a green Onix at some point, if it's not green forgive me but I had a shiny one, and I also had a digglet with a blue nose(i think)
Then there's that stupid Gyarados in heartgold, but he doesn't count.
The only non scripted shiny I have right now is my Golduck. I caught him back in November last year and ev trained him on July 4th lol

never gotten one, but then I play this rather casually, even though I have played pretty much every game.

My first shiny encounter was a Zubat in Diamond. I was training to battle Roark, when it appeared; a green Zubat. I got so excited that I woke up my sister who had been napping, and showed her my DS. She also got excited...but then...

I realized I had no Poke Balls...

Heartbroken, I had to decide to either run from it, or knock it out...and I knocked it out.

Ever since that day, I always make sure to carry Ultra Balls.

Yet, I still wonder about that Zubat that could have been.

I can relate. Twelve years and thousands of hours of pokémon, but I only encountered (and caught) my first random shiny a few months ago. A male Unfezant, so that's pretty cool.

Besides the arbitrary Gyrados, I've found a shiny Spinda in Emerald about 2 months ago.
