Your first shiny Pokemon?

    Hello everyone as you may have noticed I am new here. Growing up I have always been into pokemon. I still even have my old gameboy color with red version in it sitting in my nightstand drawer. But anyways I felt like starting a thread where we can all share stories of our first shiny (wether you caught it, lost it, or was shown by a lucky friend). My first and only shiny was encountered one day while I was casually traversing Rusturf Tunnel. When the normal battle sequence took place I simply rolled my eyes, I knew what pokemon it would be before I even saw it slide into the frame from stage left... or so I though. To my suprise this little scared-looking bunny shimered and glimmered when I saw it. It's ears were tipped green instead of yellow. I was dumbfounded, I blinked multiple times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating over sleep lost trying to catch rayquaza. When I got myself together I decided to just see if I could catch it normally. I tossed an ultra ball expertly as I always do (I swear my character could have been in the big leagues, he never missed a pokemon when throwing a ball). I watched the ball shake and it was all over. I quickly dashed to the pokecenter to check the PC. To my delight the coloration was still strange. I excitedly trained it and the moment of its evolution was an unsettling one. I had no Idea if it would still be a strange color. I froze at first.... my new loudred looked normal. Then I realized it was purple. long story short I evolved it again and it was barely noticable that is was shiny. I was dissapoint and lost it in the mix of pokemon games that came afterwards. Looking back I wish I kept it a Whismur and kept track of it for sentimental value.

    My first was on Silver - a shiny Golbat caught in Silver Mountain. I still have the shiny Crobat on my old Silver cart, and to this day I'm gutted there's no way to transfer it onto the newer games.

    I just noticed another shiny thread. I apolagize if this thread shouldnt have been made because of it.

    My first shiny was in the viridian forest on soulsilver it was a bashful weedle and I had just left the forest, bought some pokeballs went back in and the first thing I see is a green weedle I threw a great ball and caught him, I have him on my white 2 gane now and then the first shiny I caught in my platinum game was a modest floatzel, I have had a bunch of other shinies this year and I'm proud of them all :)

    The only fast way is to get a ditto (or some other pokemon) from another country and breed it. The chance of hatching a shiny that way is better than the chances of a random wild encounter.

    I was nature breeding Deinos with my Japanese Ditto and the SECOND one popped out green. Was not even trying. Been hooked on MMing since.

    I've breed and raised a shiny Hydreigon, Serperior, Charizard, Weavile, Zoroark, Zangoose, Haxorus, and just last night a Lucario. That doesn't include my event and in-game scripted shinies.

    I remember my first shiny. Route east of Jubilife city, just randomly going through the grass. BAM! A shiny Staravia pops out. I caught it. I since created a new game on my Diamond... :(

    My first shiny was a (brace yourself) Bidoof. That is if we don't include the Red Gyarados.

    Mine was a Pidgey, and she stays that way. Luv' her to bits and pieces.

    Bidoof. But technically it wasn't legit because it was a profile over my Platinum profile where I couldn't save. So my real first one was in Black 2. A Cottonee.

    my first shiny that wasnt the red gyarados, was back in silver version it was a weedle unfortunately at the time i had just started a new save file so i didnt have any pokeballs to catch it with besides at the time i thought it was a glitch, ive also seen a shiny girafarig way back then but the first official shiny i caught that i remember was a magikarp way back then i know ive seen others to9i cant remember which ones sadly) and knowing my luck i probably did catch something before that magikarp but i cant remember.
