I've caught a shiny Unown, Bronzor, Lumineon, Paras and Gyarados by chance. Best part is, I caught the random shiny Gyarados only a few weeks before HeartGold and SoulSilver were announced.
I've also got a shiny Absol from when a friend of mine was going shiny-hunting and passed them around to the rest of us. He's a total bro.
I have two shiny Hoothoots in SoulSilver.
Nope. I've never seen or caught one that isn't that obligatory Gyarados.

The one and only wild shiny I encountered was a Zubat in Platinum. My brother restarted the game, and that was that. So...no.
Then again, I've never really set out to find them.
tomorrow's just a song away.
Apart from a shiny Wingull and shiny Vulpix which I both released, the only shinies I have are Ambipom, Pidgeot (encountered in LeafGreen years ago), and Roserade.
All of them are now in White.
The only shinies I still have in gen IV would be the shiny Gyarados as well as a Muk and Gastrodon given to me.

I traded around a lot and acquired a fair amount of shinies, at one point enough to overflow a box in Platinum. I traded almost all of them away, but I have a few really special ones left, my favorite is a shiny Shellder.
