Shiny Houndour in Emerald,wasn't paying attention to the screen,but I like puppies...
I caught it.Been returning to the Safari Zone eversince.
i was trying to hatch an adamant zangoose when one of the many i tried to hatch was shiny!!! blue white with red claws! i love it! even though it has a naive nature... but still!
Mine involves the day my dad was hospitalized for a severe allergic reaction, so he's a bittersweet one, but he was still my first. It was in my Emerald, and I was running to Petalburg, when to my surprise, a Shiny Poochyena pops up! I had my False Swiper on me at the time, so I caught him easily.
Ironically enough, I found every shiny I've ever seen in that hospital room.
It was a hoothoot in pokemon silver. I got its energy down, paralysed it then looked in my bag too find not a single pokeball. (much swearing followed)
I had to run or knock it out and decided on the latter, though it gave me little solice.
It was the only shiny I saw until the 3rd gen.
I dont count the LoR Gyarardos, so I didnt get my first shiny til Platinum. The first one I saw was a shiny Tangela in the Great Marsh. Try as I might, the bastard creature ran away. Cue much profanity and cupboard punching.
The first I managed to catch was 200 hours after the Tangela. Training my Armaldo in the Resort Area, a Roselia twinkled at me. I wasnt paying attention, so I thought it had used Synthesis or something, but then noticed the black and purple flowers. Quick Ball off the bat snagged me my first shiny! I evolved it immediately, but I still hate it. Of all the Pokemon, I get a freakin' flower?! Second shiny was a Wurmple in Sapphire. Aint I lucky?
My first (and only) shiny: a shiny Silcoon that I just randomly came across...
The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

Well, it's not my shiny but I guess this counts. My brother was playing FireRed and was as the Sevii Islands. He walked in the grass and randomly came across a shiny Psyduck. That was before we knew what shinies were, so he was going to run, but I stopped him and made him catch it. Later we figured out what a shiny was, and the odds of finding one, so he trained the Psyduck. If I hadn't stopped him, he wouldn't have a legit shiny, and we still might not have a clue about shinies.
Pokémon Emerald Time Played: 315:46
A Sableye in Sapphire's Cave of Origin. I was in that place for no reason whatsoever when that showed up. It freaked me out, so I ran from it.
My first chained shiny was a Shinx in diamond. I was over the moon. :D I also managed to chain a shiny Buizel later on I only chained one or two lol. Then in Platinum while I was trying to chain a shiny Eevee I was talking to my brother until I heared that twinkle sound shinies are famous for and turned my attention back to my game to come face to face with a shiny Roselia! I was like "Good cripe!" and imediantly caught it. So Roselia was my first random shiny so I was really happy there.
