Her chansey almost killed him, bad i cound't catch him at first because there were 2 wild pokemon in the fight...I caught him, but traded later...didn't like him very much

In diamond, I was swarming for a nosepass and first one came along a shiny nosepass!! Next, I hatched a shiny Grimer, SO unexpected! :DDD
Last, I hatched a shiny Tepig! Was so awesome, I had to take a double take since I was breeding for natures! Just very lucky~! :D

In my HG,I caught my first shiny which is a Sandshrew using either a Dusk ball or Ultraball .The location is in Mt.Moon and that's pretty much it.

My first and only unexpected shiny was a Shinx while I was EV training my Gible. It had Lonely nature with Intimidate, but it had Sturdy Body for its characteristic. :'c

Still, I trained it. c8

My first shiny was a delibird, which died on the way to my pokeball. Only found anything shinny again in 2007, on the form of a Teddiursa, Saffari Zone. I was so proud this time it didn't manage to simply DIE BECAUSE IT'S SHINY.

My latest 4th Gen shiny was an East Shellos. I found it while EV training a Poliwag.
 
I found a Shiny Geodude in the Solaceon Ruins once. I caught it, an I'm lucky it didn't use/have Explosion/Selfdestruct.

After a billion HGSS eggs hatched with a Japanese Ditto to try for a shiny Wynaut, I stepped in the grass by mistake and ran into a shiny Drowzee outside the Day Care. While hatching Wynaut eggs.

The irony buuurrrrns. But I got a shiny Drowzee out of it, which is a cool shiny to have.

Anyone else run into your shiny while hatching for a shiny?
 
I've only seen one shiny: shiny drowzee. I accidentally Ko'd it. This was at least a year ago and it was on the route north of goldenrod. I had heard that you could get yanmas there so I spent forever looking for one (I didn't know they swarmed) and eventually saw a shiny drowzee. I think I KO'd it with a critical hit. How are you people so lucky with getting shinies? I have _0_.

well one night on my diamond version, i had to walk through the snow on the route below snowpoint when i found a shiny meditite. i stared at it for about 5 minutes saying "this can not be happening...". i caught it in the 2nd ball.
