The only shiny that I've ever encounter was at the Virbank Complex on my second playthrough of Black 2.
It was a shiny Magby, and in my freaking out about how awesome it was, I accidentally had my Oshawott use Water Gun on it rather than tackle like I had intended. The Magby fainted and I never got to catch it. :(
Oh well, I'll probably encounter some random shiny Elekid in my White game.
My first shiny was a shiny Floatzel in Pearl. I was trying to chain using the pokeradar. I forget what I was chaining for. It was not in a shiny patch and my chain had broke on the same encounter that I encountered it on. At first I was annoyed that my chain had broke. But then I saw it was shiny and no longer cared that the chain broke. I saved the game about 10 times after catching it.

My first was a Geodude in the Magma base in Emerald. I wasn't paying much attention so missed the sparkly intro thing, saw it was geodude, then noticed the color. I had no idea what was happening, but caught it anyway.
I lost it when the internal clock broke and corrupted the save (mine broke within a year... extreme bad luck). Now I have only Gyarados, and the pika coloured pichu/shiny legendary dogs from events.

My first shiny was a Poochyena, but since I didn't knew shiny pokémon were THAT rare I ended killing it (though I wanted to catch it). Now the only shiny pokémon I really caught was a shiny ponyta and it was recent. I just threw a quick ball and it was caught, I named it Baekhyun - it is male-.
It was in Pokémon SoulSilver.

I caught Pidgey in Fire Red, at first I didn't know what I was looking at because of the dark screen and the shiny version of it doesn't look that different. I'm glad I decided to catch it anyway on a whim. To date that's my only shiny Pokemon.

I've gotten one shiny in B2, which was a Lickitung. Other than that, all others were "always shinies".
I owned Silver version, Crystal version, Sapphire version and Diamond version. Despite my hours and hours of playing each of these games, I never found a single shiny Pokemon. (Besides Gyrados, but he doesn't count)..
Then, on Saturday night, I bought a Nintendo 3DS XL and started playing my first Generation V game. White 2. I've only owned the game for 3 days, and last night I encountered my very first shiny. I was on Route 6, and went to approach an item in the tall grass. It turns out it wasn't an item, but a wild Pokemon.. That's right... The God's have been graceful enough to deliver unto me, a SHINY FOONGUS...!!
Probably my pre-established least favorite Pokemon from the generation.
I guess it does have a unique shiny color though. (A lot of shinies are barley distinguishable from the original or rendered some nasty brownish green)
Foongus' shiny is supposed to resemble a masterball, rather than its original pokeball, or so I've read.
So, shiny Foongus will have his own private spot in my PC and in my heart.
Right next to Luvdisk and Zubat.
Sableye, Sky Pillar, Sapphire. Haven't seen a legit one since.

My first shiny was a boldore in white 2 on the chargestone cave, I caught it and named it Shinyrock (Yeah, super creative :P)
While it's not technically my first Shiny,
I just caught the First Shiny in my white 2 game:
A Shiny Male Audino. Calm Nature and 31 SpDef.
Not great but could of been a lot worse.
