Lets see. way back on the original silver i had caught a shiny girafarig and a shiny sentret. saw a shiny noctowl but made it faint >.<
Now, i caught a shiny aron on emerald, a shiny golbat on soul silver, and two shinies on white, a clefairy and an absol. Trying for a shiny treecko atm with the Masuada method.
Hey, does hatching a random shiny Onix on the GPX site count lol? Shiny Pokemon aren't as rare there as they are in the games, but they're still pretty dang rare. I'm still working on hatching a shiny Shinx, though I've only been at it for a day or so now. xP
EDIT: Oh, and the Onix has a gen 4 sprite, if that helps.
I have had some incredible luck with shinies in White. Firstly, I encountered a random shiny Durant while traveling through Victory Road the first time on my way to the league. Later, while on my way to capture Kyurem, I encountered a random shiny Piloswine in the grass. Lastly, I was breeding Barboach to EV train and what do you know? A shiny one hatches and even with the nature I wanted.
Only random encounter. A shinx when I was leaving from Jubilife towards the rock-type Gym, in the beginning of platinum, I've trained it to lvl100. In the same game a wild Fearow appeared while training my togekiss, but he got a critical hit aerial ace.
A rattata in SS, but I've already defeated Red.
And finally, a male Combee in White.

I can't remember if I caught it or not, but I believe I have a Shiny Gastrodon (West Sea). I ran into it one day, but I think I spent like, a half hour trying to capture it. Maybe I just gave up, but I'm pretty sure I caught it.
I posted this thread to see if anyone has any creative ways to search or find shiny pokemon. I know that its completely random but I want to see if anyone has any tips to improve the overall chances of getting a shiny. I have an interesting strategy myself, it involves the Game Corner in any game that sells pokemon. The key is to save up a ton of money and then buy a ton of coins. Next you go to the prize counter and save your game. Then buy a ton of pokemon costing the least amount of money (usually Abra 100 coins). After you spend all your coins you go to your PC and see if any of them are shiny if not shut off your game and retry!
Soft resetting is not new.

But buying a bunch of the same pokemon at the Game Corner to better your odds is
