xD Got a Shiny Ponyta once.

Biggest laugh I ever had. Thought my game glitched and reset, b/c I had honestly though Shinies died after gen 2 >.>

A few actually.

Shiny Ledyba which I then evolved

Shiny Steelix in a double battle during... I wanna say it was my Pearl run, but it could have been my Platinum

Shiny Charmander through soft resetting

.... Yup, I think that's it

In my earliest recollection, the very first shiny Pokemon encounter I've witnessed/captured was a shiny Latios in Pokemon Emerald. It was one of my most baffling video game experiences.
I've also captured a shiny Makuhita in Emerald, and a shiny Wigglytuff in Black 2.

My first and only shiny ever was a Machoke in Diamond. Recently i've decided i want to assemble a full team of shinies, just for the hell of it. Anyone got any tips on increasing my chances? I think Pokeradar helps, right?

Pokeradar means absolutely nothing if you don't know how to use it.

Google "pokeradar chaining", read through the front page and decide if it's worth the months of frustration you'll find, only to PERHAPS get a single shiny.

Yes, just once. I've played through gens 1-5 and have at least 1000 hours of game time but the only one I ever got was a poochyena in Emerald... FML.
