I found a shiny Petilil while just wandering around the forest area of Victory Road in White 2. I'm surprised I didn't freak out very much...
I remember catching that shiny Red Gyarados back in the day and i remember countless grinding to level up other pokemons for the elite four and i have yet to catch an actual shiny besides the red gyarados which is sad but eh ive been searching ever since too in every game i play and havent seen or caught any so my luck is kinda meh... I'm sure if i ever caught a shiny i would probably set my 3DS or gameboy aside and just dance lol
Trainer: Pikachu! use your bolt... of lightning..

My first was a shiny Tentacruel that I caught while surfing somewhere on Gold.
My first shiny other than the obligatory Red Gyarados was a Pidgey on Route 37 in Silver. This happened at a time when I had no idea that Pokemon other than Gyarados could be found with an alternate colour, so I was astounded as well as delighted when I came across it. After catching it, I insisted that anybody with Gold or Silver searched that route as they would eventually find a gold-coloured Pidgey. However, I found a shiny Geodude in Rock Tunnel a few months later, which was enough confirmation that there was a shiny version of every Pokemon and that finding them was purely down to chance. Both of these Pokemon were lost many years ago when my save file corrupted, but since then I have found many shiny Pokemon in my games (the majority of which, regrettably, I have erased).
The very first Shiny I ever caught was actually the first Pokemon I caught in Silver over a decade ago... a Hoothoot.
Even though I am unlucky in every other place, somehow I keep finding shiny Pokemon. My first was when I got Heart Gold for my birthday back in 2010, I was going to pick Totodile, but when I got to the point where I pick my starter, the Cyndaquil was shiny, so I obviously chose it instead, after nearly freaking out in excitement.

My first shiny was a shiny whismer in sapphire. Since then, I've encountered 4 more shiny Pokémon; wingull (Sapphire), nincada (sapphire), zubat (sapphire) and a rhyhorn (fire red).
The shiny wingull I was unable to catch because it was before you battled your rival for the first time and you didn't have pokéballs yet. Since the hoenn era, I haven't encountered anymore shinies even though I've encountered 20000+ pokémon. :(

Due to recent time-related inconveniences, trades with me now have to be scheduled. If your time zone isn't Pacific, you must say what your time zone is, in order to schedule a cross-time zone trade.
I have some Pokémon boxed away that are infected with Pokérus. If you'd like to have one infected with the virus too, let me know.
