    Ironically, I've only gotten two shinies ever, both in my Black2: lilipup and sunkern. Even though I'm not a huge fan of either of those, catching them was exhilirating and gave me an awesome feeling.

    *Silver game, Pink Drowzee on route 34*
    *already caught a normal one*

    "Uh... did my game just glitch up? ...I'll check later."

    *kills it, pulls game out to check/clean it*

    No one ever told me otherwise. It wasn't until old Red Gary that I learned shiny Pokémon were a thing, let alone how rare they were...

    Shiny Milotic in Emerald's battle pike. But, I wasn't allowed to catch it. It was disappointing to say the least.

    That's what I thought on my Fire Red. I was like 7, and I ran into a shiny Caterpie. I didn't know shines existed so I thought it was a glitch. I shut my game off in fear. Now I feel really stupid. The Butterfree That Got Away~

    My first shiny was a Starly very early on in Diamond. My heart never thumped so hard! Getting a first shiny is akin to getting a first kiss. It's a miraculous feeling mixed with the hope that you don't somehow screw up.

    --replays Crystal after about 5 years, runs into a shiny Graveler as the VERY FIRST pokemon--

    "Do the Pokemon in the old games normally sparkle like that? Eh, whatever." --runs--

    --encounters many more Graveler, all do not sparkle--

    I got mine, a Pinsir, in the Bug Catching Contest in Silver quite some time ago.
    I took 2nd place in that contest.
    I wasn't happy.

    Coincidentally, my only other shiny was a wild Geodude in SoulSilver...

    My first Shiny was a Duosion in White. Was going through Route NIne training up for Iris and I found it. I didn't waste any time. It stayed with me through the Gym and the Elite Four. I think I've still got it somewhere in a PC box....

    My first shiny encounter was in Silver version on a school morning. I was just sitting in the living room roaming around outside of Mount Silver when I ran into a shiny Ponyta. I had gasped and stared at the GameBoy screen in shock (I might've ran into the kitchen to show my mom, she was directly across the room from me), and then I decided to weaken it to catch it. Then it fled. I was obviously pretty upset.

    About ten years later, I'm in my room with my brothers watching something online, and I'm training in Mount Silver. I was walking around outside when I ran into a shiny Rapidash. I poisoned it, and just managed to catch it on its last turn. Then about several weeks later, I'm training in Victory Road on my Diamond version, and I run into a shiny Onix. But then I KO'd it... somehow. I did an overly-dramatic "NO" in the kitchen before I went about my normal business.

    So it's safe to say that both times, I've gotten very excited and nervous. Chances are I'll continue to remain excited and nervous each time I do encounter a shiny.

    I was mesmerized, and always feel that way, especially for a long awaited shiny that I've been hunting.

    My first shiny was when I was seven or eight. I was training my Treecko at Viridian Forest, I had just traded him from my Ruby (or Emerald? I forgot) game and I ran into a shiny Caterpie, I was shocked and surprised, but I didn't know it was extremely rare because I thought, "Oh, my sister got a shiny Nidorino a while ago, maybe it's rare but not THAT rare."

    Oh, I remember my first shiny encounter, shiny kricketune. I had played through Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, and FireRed and LeafGreen, and had never gotten a shiny no matter how many times I restarted the game (my best friend had a shiny wurmple and I thought you could get it if you reset often enough). I was just going through the area between Pastoria and the mansion on Diamond when kricketune showed up, and I freaked out. I was so happy to finally get my long-awaited shiny. At least it didn't turn out to be a freak occurence when I later got a shiny psyduck on Pearl, and a shiny graveller on Platinum (and so on).

    My first shiny was a shiny Jigglypuff from the HG/SS Safari Zone. So my feelings were a brief rush of joy and happiness, followed by the haunting horror that I encountered it in the Safari Zone.

    I caught it anyways, but it was terrifying. I threw a ball on turn 1, it broke out, and did nothing. I caught it on my second throw.

    I thought it was a Tentacool that wanted to stand out in the world.

    I was young and thought it was glitch. Skipped right past it.

    Bidoof was my first. My little sister let me borrow Pearl so I could play a game on it so I restarted it and went through the game just playing it normally. And then I was training my Turtwig on route 102 when I ran into a Bidoof-but it was different-it sparkled. I was playing it in the car on the way back from my Cousin's house and at the time I didn't know what a shiny was but I new that this "sparkling Bidoof" was rare. So I think "I'll weaken it with Turtiwg" and use Tackle. Too late I realize that my Turtwig was level 7 and the Bidoof was level 2 so I knocked it out. Wasn't that sad until I found out what shinies were a year or so later.

    Default Wayward Cave. . . . . NOT!

    I KO'd Shiny Gyarados back in my Silver version, and I had to wait until SoulSilver to capture it.

    The first shiny I got was Zubat, in Diamond, it popped up while I was mistakenly looking for a Gible in the wrong place and I just kept battling Zubats until the green one appeared!

    I was in the can when I found a shiny Snubull in Silver. I almost dropped my GBC in disbelief. Good times..

    I feel like jumping up and down, knowing I found something SUPER special! ^^ It fills me with glee once I catch one with a Poke ball and then save it. Brag Mode = Activated.

    I don't remember my reaction exactly, but seeing a green Ekans in the original Silver version as a dumb kid, I probably thought it was a glitch at first.

    I can tell you my reaction to shinies almost every other time, though:

    [half-asleep while training]

    *unfamiliar tinkling noise*

    [opens a half-lidded eye]

    "Hmm… Different color, yup. Wonder why…"

    [eyes open wide in the realization that I'm an idiot]

    "Hoo-hoo! It's a shiny!"

    [runs to show everyone before I'd even caught the thing]


    Good times. :P
