    Is anyone else surprised by the sheer number of people who thought it was a glitch the first time around?
    *raises hand*

    For me, it was a Koffing I caught in the Burnt Tower in my old Silver. I was like, "Why is this Koffing blue?" and thought there was a rare "Blue Koffing" (just like the Red Gyarados) in Burnt Tower for the longest time. However, I eventually thought it was a glitch and deleted that game.

    It wasn't until years later, after I got my Sapphire, that I learned what a shiny was, and boy was I upset when I looked up what a shiny Koffing looked like. xD

    My first wild shiny was a ratata, in the first part of grass from cherrygrove, in HG. I was still semi excited that I found it, despite it not being of much use to me. However forgot to save the game so I lost it.

    My first shiny (barring events) was a shiny Kricketot. In the Battle Frontier.

    I was tempted to throw my DS at the wall.
    I like Metagross, and I used to claim it!
    Spheal with it.

    Closest I ever got to owning a legit shiny.

    I hatched the Mystery Egg given to you by the Daycare couple in Crystal.
    Turned out to be a shiny Igglybuff.

    Only thing is, this was on a PC emulator, so iunno if I'd say it's quite the same as a real shiny. haha

    I remember like it was 4 years ago (oh wait it was). It was about 6:30 in the morning on Saturday, I was just training a magikarp near snowpoint, trying to get it to evolve when I saw a pink sneazel. My first reaction, after about 5 minutes of :0, was holy crap, my second reaction was wait... PINK. I mean just... wow. But shiny and shiny none the less, I ended up catching it.

    I have yet to experience the feeling of catching a shiny Pokemon.

    I found my first shiny in Ruby sometime in 2003 or 2004. I had restarted my game about 20 minutes prior and was on Route 103 when all of a sudden, a red sparkly Seedot appeared on my screen. I had no idea what shinies were at the time (I thought the red Gyarados was just an exclusive event thing, and didn't realize that other Pokemon could be shiny); so I didn't really know what to think. But I figured that the Seedot must have been special, so I decided to catch it. It's now a Nuzleaf, sitting somewhere on one of my Gen 3 games, assuming that I didn't save over that file at some point.

    Since then, I've found nine other shinies between Gens 4 and 5. I only caught five of those, though.

    The bad thing is, shinies aren't automatic wins. I caught my (now-traded) illumise in a SoulSilver contest, and she didn't even rank. I was ticked. -_-

    In Pokemon Diamond, I was using the Pokeradar on route 204 and on the 3rd shot, I see some really sparkly grass on the other side of the grass patch but forgot where the other patches were so I had to be careful where I was walking. I got to the patch and I found a shiny Ralts, and I caught it asap. It's now a shiny Gardevoir. I also randomly met a shiny Jigglypuff in my SS at the worst place, the Safari Zone where it could have fled.

    After playing through Emerald, Diamond, Platinum, Soul Silver, White and White 2 I just found a shiny Sentret not a minute ago while replaying Soul Silver. I'd just come back to my house to save for the last time (I know, sappy) after catching Groudon.

    I can now tell you what my feeling was: I was absolutely breathless. (I'd pretty much decided I was never going to see a shiny, so my feeling might have been amplified.)

    He is named SHINY!!!!!

    That feel when first shiny is Psyduck and you evolve it and accidentally save the game when it is a slightly lighter blue golduck.

    Back in 2010 or 2011, when I lend Pokémon Battle Revolution from my friend, I was playing in the Sunset Colosseum. I could only play lend pokémon. I chose 3 pokémon and one them was a Gible. When the Gible comes out his pokéball, I saw shiny stars around the Gible and realized it was a shiny Gible. A SHINY Gible! Can you believe it??? IT'S SHINY!!!!!1111 This was my first shiny ever! Too bad I couldn't have it my team T.T

    But this time... in 2013... I'll have a shiny Gible FOR REAL this time! I'll will have a shiny Gible on my Black 2 from the Black Skyscraper. Coming soon...

    As I haven't actually seen a wild or hatched shiny, even though I played through 4 games multiple times, I don't know, but I'd probably faint

    My opinion is objective fact. If you disagree, well, you're wrong

    My advice is do not evolve it to garchomp, the shiny is EXACTLY the same, look it up on serebii dex

    I ran in to a Shiny Zubat way back in Gold, like a few weeks after I got it. Accidentally KO'ed it. I was not happy.

    I remember my first shiny because it was kind of a funny situation.. I was playing Pearl, and trying to get a Buneary (which should have been easy), and kept running into Cascoons. After maybe twenty minutes of searching and only getting Cascoons, a SHINY Cascoon popped up. I was like, what the hell is this bright green thing, and why is it not a Buneary?!

    The feeling I got when I found my first shiny was one of dread. It was a Poochyena, in the route above Oldale town, on the way to battle May. Of course, at this point in the game, you cannot have Pokéballs. There may have been tears.

    It would take 7 years and thousands of hours of play time to find my second, a Mincinno on Route 9 in White. Because I was there to catch a Pawniard, I had plenty of Pokéballs. I nicknamed it Mini, EV trained it in Attack and Speed and evolved it, and it is now a staple in my random matchup team. Thank god it had Technician and a Jolly nature.

    I don't know how I'd describe the feeling. It was bizarrely similar to the feeling when I found $300 in the gutter. Sheer excitement.

    Now, in White 2, I have the shiny charm, and I wonder if the feeling will be the same.

    In my previously owned Platinum game, I came across a shiny ghastly in that old tower place a few steps from exiting. I was held in pure suspense; a feeling only the most wonderful pleasures and fears can bring out. I only had so few balls with me, and no way to safely weaken the (un)living gem. Thankfully, I got it with the second great ball I threw. Trained it into a Gengar, even though the visual appeal was sublime for it then.

    If you look closer, you'll see it's a little bit darker. But I'll still evolve it. It's still a shiny, that's all it matters.

    Well my first shiny that wasn't the red Gyarados in SoulSilver was a shiny Sawk I ran into in Black. Can't remember my initial reaction but I wasn't very happy when it fainted due to a critical hit (it would've survived had it been a normal hit) - Murphy's Law eh?

    I have since caught a shiny Audino - my reaction then I think was excitement, but not too much 'cause Audino's useless. :L
