    Default Your first shiny Pokemon?

    Hello everyone as you may have noticed I am new here. Growing up I have always been into pokemon. I still even have my old gameboy color with red version in it sitting in my nightstand drawer. But anyways I felt like starting a thread where we can all share stories of our first shiny (wether you caught it, lost it, or was shown by a lucky friend). My first and only shiny was encountered one day while I was casually traversing Rusturf Tunnel. When the normal battle sequence took place I simply rolled my eyes, I knew what pokemon it would be before I even saw it slide into the frame from stage left... or so I though. To my suprise this little scared-looking bunny shimered and glimmered when I saw it. It's ears were tipped green instead of yellow. I was dumbfounded, I blinked multiple times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating over sleep lost trying to catch rayquaza. When I got myself together I decided to just see if I could catch it normally. I tossed an ultra ball expertly as I always do (I swear my character could have been in the big leagues, he never missed a pokemon when throwing a ball). I watched the ball shake and it was all over. I quickly dashed to the pokecenter to check the PC. To my delight the coloration was still strange. I excitedly trained it and the moment of its evolution was an unsettling one. I had no Idea if it would still be a strange color. I froze at first.... my new loudred looked normal. Then I realized it was purple. long story short I evolved it again and it was barely noticable that is was shiny. I was dissapoint and lost it in the mix of pokemon games that came afterwards. Looking back I wish I kept it a Whismur and kept track of it for sentimental value.

    My first was on Silver - a shiny Golbat caught in Silver Mountain. I still have the shiny Crobat on my old Silver cart, and to this day I'm gutted there's no way to transfer it onto the newer games.

    My first shiny was in the viridian forest on soulsilver it was a bashful weedle and I had just left the forest, bought some pokeballs went back in and the first thing I see is a green weedle I threw a great ball and caught him, I have him on my white 2 gane now and then the first shiny I caught in my platinum game was a modest floatzel, I have had a bunch of other shinies this year and I'm proud of them all

    The only fast way is to get a ditto (or some other pokemon) from another country and breed it. The chance of hatching a shiny that way is better than the chances of a random wild encounter.

    I was nature breeding Deinos with my Japanese Ditto and the SECOND one popped out green. Was not even trying. Been hooked on MMing since.

    I've breed and raised a shiny Hydreigon, Serperior, Charizard, Weavile, Zoroark, Zangoose, Haxorus, and just last night a Lucario. That doesn't include my event and in-game scripted shinies.

    I remember my first shiny. Route east of Jubilife city, just randomly going through the grass. BAM! A shiny Staravia pops out. I caught it. I since created a new game on my Diamond...

    My first shiny was a (brace yourself) Bidoof. That is if we don't include the Red Gyarados.

    Bidoof. But technically it wasn't legit because it was a profile over my Platinum profile where I couldn't save. So my real first one was in Black 2. A Cottonee.

    my first shiny that wasnt the red gyarados, was back in silver version it was a weedle unfortunately at the time i had just started a new save file so i didnt have any pokeballs to catch it with besides at the time i thought it was a glitch, ive also seen a shiny girafarig way back then but the first official shiny i caught that i remember was a magikarp way back then i know ive seen others to9i cant remember which ones sadly) and knowing my luck i probably did catch something before that magikarp but i cant remember.

    The first shiny I saw was when my brother met a shiny Weedle in Ilex Forest in Pokémon Silver, we had no idea what was so special about it and he accidentally killed it, but we didn't mind it much, no big deal we figured. My poor brother still hasn't gotten a shiny to this day, he did encounter a shiny Kadabra in Cerulean Cave in Fire Red, but alas, no Pokéballs.

    The first shiny that I myself encountered was a shiny Tentacool in Pokémon Leaf Green, I do believe that I still have it, haven't checked up on it for ages. Another one I've met was a shiny Golbat in Pokémon Ruby while training in Victory Road, also caught that one, but I'm pretty sure that its been lost, didn't care for that one quite as much as Tentacool anyways, Tentacruel is an awesome shiny, and I really should get around to evolving it.

    Oh yeah, btw, I'm also new here.

    my first shiny was a tentacruel in pearl, just out side the pokemon league in that waterfall bit, i panicked, not wanting to lose it and used my master ball :P
    my second shiny was a whismur in ruby, in that bit where skittys are found, i was meant to be studying for a test so i was being discrete and contained myself, i checked my bag and literally had 1 great ball and that was it. buuuuuuuuuuut I caught it! BOOYAH

    A Gastrodon in Pearl. It didn't even look shiny. If I didn't see it sparkle I wouldn't know... -___-
