my first ever shiny pokemon was a spinda in sapphire and at the time, i was 8 and had no idea what a shiny was so i KO'ed it. my friend then came over to me and looked at my game and saw a green spinda fainting and said, "What did you do!? You just missed a 1 in 8192 chance!!!" im 12 now and am STILL trying to reclaim that shiny.
Oh, I remember my first shiny very vividly! It was a few years ago whilst I was playing Pokemon Crystal. I was just about to go back to Azalea through the forest and right when I got to that pink section a step away from the exit, something appears. I was like, "Nuuu, stop bothering me! >_<" But then a Caterpie popped out, all gold and shiny. I was glad I got invaded.
A shiny raticate in silver version!
Ryou Bakura, Yami Bakura, and I live together in Lief's bedroom. Back off
Shiny Abra in Sapphire just after arriving to Dewford...yes, I got it.
I think it was either a pidgey or a ratatta in Crystal. I didn't catch it because I didn't have any pokeballs D:
I had a shiny Numel in Sapphire. I lost the save file since then. :(
I found my first shiny very recently, compared to most of you.
It was a Floatzel in Platinum that I found in Victory Road. Unfortunately, it has terrible IVs.
I ended up finding a shiny Zubat in Emerald later, although I KOed it because my team was too strong. My weakest Pokémon knocked it out in one hit. :(
I did find a shiny Magikarp in the Lake of Rage in SoulSilver, and a shiny Psyduck on Route 34 in HeartGold. I like shiny Psyduck's coloration better than Golduck's but oh well. It evolved and that's that.
I randomly caught a shiny Clampearl in Emerald. It has since evolved to a Huntail.
