I said this on another thread (I think it was first shiny), but I'll say it again
The first shiny I ever saw was in FireRed, and I beat it on accident. It was a Zubat and I found it in Mt. Moon looking for a Clefairy.
I didn't see another one until about a week ago, in Black, where I caught a shiny Joltik training for Mistralton gym in Chargestone Cave. My first caught shiny EVER!
In Pokemon Emerald version, I met two shinys, both in Victory Road, and completely random.
The first one was a shiny Golbat. The color was greenish-brown so I thought it was a really rare pokemon and caught it. (I had never known that such things as shinys existed at that time.)
...Though I did not find him useful and put him in the PC, never to be taken out again.
The second one was a shiny Hariyama. I didn't even notice the color differences, but there were stars when it appeared. So I caught it.
...he wasn't useful either (I had a full team of pokemon all around level 60) so into the PC he goes.
All you need is M-E-G-A-N-E
Not too long ago I encountered a shiny Electrike in Emerald while training my own non-shiny Electrike. I caught it and threw it into my PC like I do with every shiny I get. =P

I'm proud to have caught every Shiny I've met. :) Now, I just need to find a Shiny in Rumble and I'll be happy.
It feels horrible to kill a shiny Pokemon... Especially if you know exactly how rare they are.
I found a wild shiny with good iv's...
That's a very nice post you have there...
I'll never forget my first random encounter shiny. I had just gotten hold of some Poké Balls in Pearl and managed to make it through the first route without running into anything. So I step into the grass on the second route, and the very first thing I run into is a shiny Shinx!
Then, a few months later, my brother was stuck in a cave on Diamond, so I tried to help him get through it, and I found a shiny Golbat.
I saw a shiny bronzor on the GTS yesterday. They wanted a level 100 swalot which I of course did not have. It's rare for me to find shinies for something that's actually legal (instead of level 9 and under reshiram or zekrom). So after some moping I decided to try to get one myself so I took out White and put in Platinum. Bronzor is relatively easy to chain if only because it's the only steel pokemon on route 211 east so magnet pull made it much easier to encounter them. It took a few tries but I did get myself a pretty green bronzor. :>
I found a shiny Starly on Pearl today - and it had to be in the Great Marsh of all places! I threw mud at it, thinking it would make it less likely to flee (I never understand how that system works) and it fled instantly. Gutted...
My first shiny was in Platinum. Found a Camerupt on Stark Mountain looking for Magby to get a Magmarizer. Then when I learned how to EV train...... I have found roughly 11 shiny Bidoof. Put them all in the ''Trash'' box. Then I got into RNG'ing and PokeSav, so shinies are no longer special to me, sadly.
