    Cool That feeling when you see your first shiny pokemon

    Everything I have to say is in my sig. I'm too speechless. I wasn't expecting this. On that normal day, I was just doing my routine of breeding for an Adamant Torchic. Getting a shiny Torchic, however, was the last thing I expected to happen. It's my first. I've been playing since RSE, and this REALLY is my first. When I saw the yellow body, and orange "hands", I screamed the "sh" word so loud, my friend asked me what's wrong, and...well I told him the rest.

    So...what did you feel when you saw your first shiny?

    Well. Unless it's that stupid red Gyrados, it's awesome to see your first Shiny. xD

    I still haven't done it! Been breeding charmanders via MM for a while but still no luck - I bet it's really exciting tho. Can I ask, is it immediately obvious that it's shiny when it hatches? Or only on it's status screen?

    Also have pokerus infected pokemon, thanks PanOne!

    It will show the shiny coloring of the Pokemon when it hatches. So yeah...as I was saying, when I saw the yellow body and orange hands, I immediately knew it. It's my first shiny! Anyways, good luck, Vivaea! Just remember: it can happen when you least expect it. At least that's what happened to me. Oh and no bragging intended, but MM wasn't used. I just did the classic pokemon+ditto=baby thing.

    @Silver: Oh yeah. I forgot that. I never used it though on my SS. It felt overrated, I guess?

    Um... I think my first shiny was a Sandshrew... I was playing on a non-lit GBA in poor lighting. 'Gee, sandshrew sure looks green in this lighting...'

    I was much more excited when I found my second shiny though.

    No, I didn't realize it was special until the next one showed up, apparently it wasn't the lighting... >.<

    ^lol

    My first shiny was a Sewaddle. I just saw it and thought, oh my god, I have to get this. So then I caught it, named it Glowworm and literally shrieked with happiness.

    My first shiny was a Unown (M). Then followed by a shiny Smoochum hatched from the Odd Egg. And I was really happy of course.
    And then I never found any other shiny in all the Pokemon games I've played after that.

    My first shiny was a shiny Hoot-Hoot on SS. I was lucky too because it was the first encounter after I got the Pokeballs from Lyra.

    Since it was in the 3rd gen wherein I saw my first shiny, I was really surprised when I saw it and I was like something is not right about this. I actually thought it was a glitch but wow, was I wrong XD.

    10 year old me: "Ooh, I didn't know Ponyta could be blue. Oh well, I'll catch one some other time" and I continued on my way to Veilstone City. Only shiny I've ever seen.

    Yeah, I did wonder if it was a glitch too.

    Oh, and I keep thinking Deerling is shiny when the season changes.

    Waited 10yrs to get a shiny Pokemon. Finally achieved my dream one day, only to find it was an Unown. The most unusable Pokemon in all of Pokemon. In the meme bad luck Brian got a shiny Bidoof, but at least he could've evolved it into the mighty shiny HM slave that is Bibarel......

    I saw my first shiny when I was little and playing LeafGreen. It was a shiny Bellsprout and I screamed internally because I knew what a shiny was at the time. I was so excited to show it off to my friends. Then the excitement quickly turned to despair when I went into my bag and found out I didn't have a single Pokeball....

    I learned about shinies before I saw my first one so I didn't think it was a glitch. My first shiny was in Black, I was walking through Chargestone Cave and I found a shiny Joltik. I was like "Oh! I didn't expect this. But you're just a Pokemon with different colors. I'll make you faint instead" so I did.

    wow... my first ever shiny? that was many gens ago to be honest I think it was a blue voltrob, I didn't know why it had a different colour but caught it anyway. When a shiny Nidorina appeared for me in Saffari Zone from Leaf Green I was soooo nervous but managed to catch her so I was thrilled about it! I started breeding for shinies through MM just recently and every time I get one I'm simply overwhelmed with joy, thats for sure

    While I don't remember exactly what I thought, my first Shiny was a Growlithe in Gold. I actually found it before finding the Red Gyarados. I guess I caught it because it looked cool. Sadly, said Shiny Growlithe was lost when my Gold's Save Data was lost.
