Just a thread about any shinies that you may have encountered. For instance, I had a random encounter with a Shiny Drowzee in Gold (which I caught), a shiny Sentret in Crystal (which I encountered in my first fight, before you had Pokeballs and had to kill it), and I soft resetted for a Shiny Ho-oh and a Shiny Lugia in Silver.
So, have you ever caught any shiny pokemon?

(RIP shiny Farfetch'd. I killed you before I knew that you were actually really rare.
RIP shiny Sentret: Elm, you are a terrible, terrible man
RIP shiny Phanphy: WHY DID YOU RUN AWAY!
RIP shiny Growlithe: YOU JUST HAD TO ROAR, didn't you?)

I got really lucky with all of the shinies, but I've also been playing for a while. How about you?

I was just walking around in Sapphire version, and ran into a shiny Spinda. Traded it last week (after having it for 2 years) for a shiny Delibird :)

Well, I have ran into some Shinies in the past

Shiny Krabby in Silver: I caught it while searching for items
Shiny Voltorb in Fire Red: Caught it for my friend who literally TOLD me to find him a shiny. It was the first Pokemon I ran into after he told me.
Shiny Bidoof in Diamond: Random encounter, caught it with my last Poke Ball (had only one)
Shiny Wobbuffet in Diamond: Used the Poke Radar.

Notable mentions
Was screwed out of getting a shiny Spearow, Snubbull, and Tauros in Diamond. I even followed the Poke Radar rules, but you can still get screwed.

Deaths
R.I.P. Shiny Krabby. I'm sorry that I broke the game you were in
R.I.P. Shiny Voltorb. I'm sorry that I gave the game you were in back to my friend and discovered that he dropped it in a puddle of water and broke it.

I never ran into a shiny Pokemon before and I want to catch one, but the chances of finding are small.

I have encountered a shiny Golbat before. I weakened it and caught it. :) I then trained it and take care of it to evolve it into a beautiful Crobat. I then traded it from Pokemon Saphire into Pokemon Pearl. :)

somewhere along the lines i forgot my vow, and he became a turd-brown butterfry. ah, the
painfull memories.

Nice job to everyone who encountered and caught shinies.
I'd like to note that RIP/ death threads are also great here, mainly so that we you could laugh at their my pain. :)
Just got a shiny Cyndaquil on Crystal Emulator after 2,000 or so resets. The Random Number Generator loves me. Of course, Crystal reset after I logged off of Vizzed, so shiny Cyndaquil is gone now. >_< I think the emulator hates me, but the RNG doesn't.
And yes, the shiny Gyarados counts if you'd like it to (I forgot to mention it in mine)

Once upon a time, I was walking through the Great Marsh in Pearl. I ran into a shiny Budew, and after one ball throw, it ran away. Now I hope not to run into a shiny in the Safari Zone/Great Marsh.

Well, I remember clearly the first time I caught a shiny Magikarp. I can't remember what happened well, but I do remember the fact that I was running around my room victoriously. And yes, it was real, and unexpected:D.

The only shiny I've ever caught legit was a shiny Zubat that eventually evolved into a pink Crobat. The rest of the shinys I caught were cheats. Other than the red Gyarados in Gold/Silver/Crystal because that one doesn't count since it's a freebie.

In Crystal I found a shiny Level 2 Rattata and in Soul Silver I came across a shiny Sudowoodo (on the first try). I caught them both. Though that Rattata has to be the lamest shiny you could find.
