Shinies and I have a love/hate relationship. The first Magikarp I ever saw was a shiny, but I had no Pokéballs. However, I now own and love my own shiny Aggron, Promethium.

I have HORRIBLE shiny luck. I got to the part on Soul Silver (first Pokemon game next to PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond) when the professer who's name I forgot called me to come to his lab for an emergancey, I forgot where his lab was. So, I decided to train my Chickorita. Well, I found a shiny Sentret. I was so happy! I was running around my house freaking out and telling my parents I was going to catch it. Well, guess what? NO POKEBALLS. MASSIVE FAIL. GOT REAL SAD. RAN AWAY THINKING IT WAS GOING TO COME BACK. NEVER DID. DARN YOU SENTRET.


And after that, I never saw a non in-game shiny.

I saw a shiny Floatzel once in Pokemon Y. Didn't manage to catch it, though. Apart from that, I haven't seen any shinies. My brother found a shiny Yamask in his copy of either Black or Black 2. I don't remember whether he caught it or not.

Considering that I've only been playing mainstream Pokemon games since Diamond, it's probably not surprising that I haven't seen many shinies and that I only discovered that Pokerus was a thing during Pokemon White. I was mainly a PC gamer when I was younger, ok? While my friends had Gameboys, I had a PC.

My first shiny was a Shiny Tentacool in Pokemon Leaf Green, and I managed to catch it. Too bad my Gameboy shut itself off before I saved..
The next one was a shiny Zubat on Pokemon Platinum he was still low leveled so I managed to catch it ^^. I would normally add a Zubat in my team, but Ofcourse right at that time I planned an entire team before I started playing D: It's still living somewhere in my box though ;p

The one time I found a shiny Stunky in Platinum near Veilstone, I didn't have any Pokéballs. Then I was playing FireRed on an emulator and found a shiny Abra, saved state and kept throwing Pokéballs until I caught it. :king:

My first shiny was a Throh in White :> I obtained all my other shinies in Y. Got Horsea, Shellder, Octillery, Remoraid and Basculin via chain fishing (accidentally got the latter two knocked out though so I couldn't catch them). MM'd a Pichu which I traded to my best friend :D Last but not least I found a Stunfisk and Dedenne in friend safaris.
