So I was at the beginning of the game and I usually pick the fire types, in this case, a Cyndaquil. I kept resetting because I couldn't get the right nature. After only about 30 resets, I noticed the Totodile I highlighted was a different color. I was so excited because it was my first shiny Pokemon ever, though I was disappointing that whatever nature it had hindered its attack stat.
I've been a fan of this series since R/B/Y (Though shinies weren't introduced until G/S/C) and after about 12 years of playing these games, I finally have a legit shiny Pokemon.
This happened just a couple weeks ago and I finished the game and continued onto Black. I ran into another shiny Pokemon which was a Tympole. Even though I have no desire to raise it, my jaw dropped when I encountered it.
What was the first shiny Pokemon you've encountered? The red Gyarados doesn't count.
My very first shiny was a shiny wild numel in Sapphire
My first shiny in HeartGold I never caught It was when I was training for Clair, and it was a graveler it trolled me hard too, I got it down to red, threw an ultra ball, broke out on the 3rd shake check the proceeded to blow up.
Time... line? Time isn't made of lines! It is made of circles. That is why clocks are round.
