It took me forever to catch my latest Eevee -- I relied on Fletchinder's Flame Body to do the damage (only to learn that wild Eevees have Refresh) -- but it was totally worth it because after 30 or so turns (and nearly a dozen assorted Pokeballs) I now have a Jolteon for taking on Lumiose Gym (Volt Absorb + Dig + immune to Paralysis). And with a +Sp.Atk nature too!
"What?! You want me to nickname someone I just met?! You shouldn't put people on the spot like this!"
(No wonder Pokemon nicknames are so difficult to think up.)
I just caught my first Shiny of the game: A Poliwhirl. :D
I can understand Pokémon, just like N!

My friend bred me a shiny adamant female aron. She's now a great and powerful shiny megaaggron

I just got the game last night, and while looking for a Furfrou for my team on Rt 5, i cam across a hoard of gulpin that had a shiny in it! :0 Caught it thanks to friends giving me Capture powers x)
I caught my first shiny in Kalos, a Spritzee. Thanks Friend Safari.
I went to Route 12 to catch a Tauros, and a SHINY Tauros is the very first Pokemon that appears.
I've never had a shiny encounter in my entire time of Pokemon (I have a VERY vague memory of running into one back in G/S/C years ago, but I'm thinking it was probably a fabrication in my mind), aside from the Shiny Relicanth I used the fishing trick to get (therefore it doesn't really count).
Caught a shiny Ninetales today in Friend Safari. Made me feel better after I failed at using Pokeradar today. That thing is haaaard.
Got a shiny amoonguss today. Dont really care for shinies tough, if anyone want to trade it for something nice, im all ears :P
Today I hatched a shiny Noibat after only seventeen eggs. He's the sixth shiny Pokemon I've encountered in X and Y so far, the others being a Foongus I ran into in a Horde, an Aegislash that I hatched after over seven hundred eggs, an Electrode I found randomly (and caught with a Master Ball), and a Clauncher and Skrelp I caught through Consecutive Fishing.
