    I found a shiny Zigzagoon while training outside of Verdanturf Town. I was curious, so I caught it and took a peek at its summary. My friend at the time was watching me play and he pointed out, "Oh, you need to release that Pokémon! That star there means it's glitched and it'll delete your entire game!"
    I had over 200 hours in Ruby, so of course I ran to the Pokémon Center immediately and released it. About a year later I discovered what shiny Pokémon were and how rare they are. I was so mad at my friend for the longest time. XD

    My first Shiny appearance was a Sharpedo, when I still didn't know what a Shiny Pokemon is.

    I selected "Run" and went under options, if I possibly set graphics to fancy.

    I later found out that I blew it big time Running away...

    I remember encountering a shiny mightyena in Emerald. I only had high levels in my party and only
    a couple of ultra balls. In the end i ran out of balls and killed it :'(

    i have caught 2 shinys in a row

    1# i was speeding across viridian forest, a shiny metapod came. i caught it, but i put it in the box because all it knew was harden. i know i could switch it back and get exp with that trick but i didnt feel like it.

    2# right after i caught that metapod, i took a few more steps, and another shiny metapod. i was thinking is my game hacked into or something? i caught it, all it knew was harden again, didnt feel like training it. into the box

    3: in sapphire i was surfing, i dont know why i was surfing randomly, but then a shiny pelipper appeared. i caught it, used it on my team, and it was really good.

    4: much later in sapphire i found another shiny pelipper, but i had one so i caught it and put it in the box

    i have no failures, but i dont know how i get the same ones each time

    ^ Well that's stupid..

    I've had two- one sort of a failure. I was hatching eggs on Four Island in Leaf Green trying to get an adamant natured Pupitar. After a couple eggs the sprite of it coming out of the egg was shiny! I knew it was shiny and used it on my team. The only fail was after some time I pal parked it to Heart Gold and then lost Heart Gold during a move [moving houses].

    Recently coming back from my relatives on Thanksgiving I got a shiny Magnemite randomly in Sapphire. I was pretty darn happy as it was completely random and I had enough poke balls to catch it. It happened only 7 hours or so into the game, was a really nice surprise since I decided I wanted to play through Sapphire.

    I seen a total of 14 pokemons, and captured 12. (My 2 fails are on Firered)
    The first time I play: Walk in grass, then see a orange Rattata having some stars on it. No pokeballs, then notice that rattatas are purple...
    3 hours later: Walking in MT-Moon, see a black zubat, try to capture it, waste my only 3 pokeballs.
    It hurts when you loose a shiny, seriously.
    Current Hunt: 800 eggs hatched

    A few years ago, I was fishing on route 119, desperately trying to find and catch a feebas, alas, not one feebas to be found. instead I come across a shiny magikarp, initially, I didn't know what to think, but I was still so excited, because this was the first shiny I'd ever seen. from what I recall, I believe the pokemon in my party were all level 60+ so in the end I one-hit KO the magikarp.
    Now that I think back on it, I see how stupid my decision was, because the magikarp was level 15 or so, and I could've just lobbed ultra balls at it to catch it haha, oh well, I was like 8 or 9 at the time.

    I was trying to get to Steven quickly in the cave from Dewford and I was just running from every Pokemon I saw and because I was in that mindset, I ran away from a shiny zubat, only realizing what I just did immediately after.

    My First Shiny encounter:

    In Emerald
    Back when I was like 7, I ran into a shiny Wurmple. It looked weird, so burned it. I thought Wurmples were useless anyways. I had no idea it was shiny.
    But I did catch a shiny Shuppet at Mt. Pyre a few years later. Hooray!

    Almost fail: My first shiny encounter was in sapphire. An Absol. I was hunting for a male Absol and a shiny male Absol appears! I catch it and its name is Kunga. It lives in my black 2... That could have ended SO badly, seeing I was 10. I had no idea what a shiny was, either. I just knew it looked different and I wanted it...

    Fail: shiny lapras in safari zone. 'Nuff said. But I DID catch a shiny sandshrew from that same area a year later. Still have it, btw.

    Once up in snowpoint training, I stumbled onto a shiny sneazel. I knew right away what it was, because my brother had a shiny fearow. I got it but my bro accidently eleted it later on.

    Attachment 8140ok, so I was walking in the grass and I noticed that the castform was a different color so i ran ( I was only 6 at the time).
    then when I was playing pokemon black 2 at midnight I encountered a shiny gurrdur so I caught it.
    Later on in the tall grass a shiny minun came out though I didn't have any poke balls so I had no choice but to defeat it.
    Two years later I encountered a shiny jirachi in twisted mountain I did catch it but I didn't save so when my DS battery died ( I did replace it) I
    went back to twist mountain to see if I could encounter it again, but I failed. I never saw any more shiny pokemon again sigh*.
    ( I litterally cried for 20 minutes in my room)

    I found a shiny Poliwag in the weird karate place in battle frontier. The only shiny I have found in all of RSE.
    Had to remove image because of SPPf sig rules. :c </3

    ^ Do you mean Twist Mountain? If so, there are no Jirachii in that mountain. In an extension area there is Regigigas, but no Jirachii.

    Anyways, I have two fails that I want to talk about.

    1. I was in the Battle Pyramid on Emerald, you know, just walking about, when I encountered a shiny Pikachu. My head ached for about an hour.

    2. This is my sisters, but I want to share it anyway. She was either on Emerald or Sapphire. She was walking around when she found a shiny Oddish! She ran and showed it to me. I said "Catch it!". So she tried. She weakened it, and rushed to the bag. What she saw almost made her cry. There were no pokeballs of any kind.

    I found a shiny Cacnea in Pokemon SoulSilver. It fled after it broke free.
