Ran into another one last night at route 7.
Okay, so I was training my Flareon, I looked up for a second & suddenly heard the sound that starts a battle. When I looked back at the screen, a shiny Watchog appears. I just glared for a second at my surprise & lowered its health into the yellow by using Quick Attack. Thankfully, I didn't kill it & caught it with one Great Ball. Even though I'd rather find a shiny Mienshao or Altaria, I'm still happy I finally ran into one again. ^^
My favorite shinies. :3

I always root for the ships that don't get a lot of love.
I'm playing Black 2 now (I plowed through W2 back at launch) and i'm doing some leveling up before taking on the fifth gym. Just now i encountered a shiny audino while grinding. Woo-hoo!
My encounters so far:
Sapphire: Carvanha (Route 119, while searching for Feebas... Now a LV100 Shiny Sharpedo, Black2)
FireRed: Voltrob (Power Plant, it self-desturcted... <sniff>...)
Emerald: Spinda (Route 113. Now a LV17 ()Shiny Spinda, Black2)
Only three so far, and only in Gen 3.
HG Red Gyarados doesn't count.
This Mega Blastoise is nicknamed "Zexy". Fact.
Just got a Shiny Eevee today!!! I was soft resetting for it in my Pokemon Firered Version during a college lecture this morning and I thought to myself, "gee wouldn't it be nice if I got the shiny Eevee right now", and then all of a sudden bam, jackpot !! I look at my Gameboy SP screen and then I saw it!! I was so surprised! Later today I traded it to my friend's Emerald version to use the cloning glitch on it. So I cloned like 35 shiny Eevees!!! I then transferred them to my Heartgold version, which took a while since I Pal-parked all 35 of them!! I was so excited afterwards though. So now I can have all 8 shiny Eeveelutions once X and Y come out! Soft-resetting for the shiny Eevee took a total of about 2.5 months. So I was excited when I got it during my college lecture!!
After a solid 5-6 years of Pokemon, I have never encountered a shiny other than Rage Gyrados. 1/8192? as if. Maybe they want us to take the extreme measures [Shiny stone, masuda method, certain events] to even see them. Sucks when you later find out the shiny you have is useless in-battle due to IVs :\.
Found my second ever shiny today. First one was a Wurmple in Diamond which I accidently KOed. Today, I found a shiny Throh on Victory Road. Wasn't even looking for shinies, I was Audino grinding for the Elite Four, accidentally went in the long grass whilst trying to get the shaking grass and I found it.
My current goal is to nab a shiny Baltoy in W2. I started last night, have had 134 random encounters (only 16 of them being Baltoy), and I've hatched 96 eggs.

By the time i played emerald i've found 3 when i was completing the game! Poochyena, Zigzagoon and a Zubat.
Then i soft reseted the crap for some more, and tried some random encounters, and then i got like 13 in total!
The coolest with no doubts its the black charizard! :D

As of right now, I'm gathering up another round of 50 eggs in order to go for another run on my Elekid hunt. I've hatched 700 and found nothing; if I hadn't had a successful Masuda run last year, I'd be getting kinda worried.
Bumblebee, no matter how long it takes, you will be mine!

I ran into a shiny Suicune on Crystal today after spending a number of sessions over the past month or so soft resetting for one in the Tin Tower. While I thought that I was sufficiently prepared to battle and capture it, I soon found out that I was wrong. With 24 Ultra Balls, 15 Poke Balls and 18 Great Balls in my bag (my Master Ball was used on Lugia earlier on), I used my Lanturn to paralyse it before sending out Ariados to weaken it with Night Shade. When its HP was low, I proceeded by throwing ball after ball at it with EVERY one of them failing. Suffice to say I was, and still am, gutted. However, I am far from giving up on catching a shiny Suicune.
I've been playing Pokemon since 2001, and I've never encountered a shiny. I feel kind of left out. Haha. But the first time I played Sapphire, I encountered a Wailord on one of the water routes (I believe it was Route 127). I was like "What? O.o" It was so big and I had no idea what it was. xD

Anyway, today I actually came across my fourth natural shiny in Emerald: a shiny Solrock in Meteor Falls.
