Let's see, I've traded for three in White: Umbreon, Arcanine, and Steelix.
I've also encountered a shiny Spearow in FireRed. Goldwing (its name) replaced my Pidgeotto immediately.
I attempted to breed a shiny Axew, but it got too boring and I stopped (hey, more trade fodder for anything I don't have in my pokédex)

I was zooming around in Pokemon Ruby Destiny Life Of Guardians and I found a shiny Lv2 pidgey! I saved my state, took a screenshot, and threw a pokeball at it. It didnt work so I downloaded the last save state and tried again! Then I caught it! I put it in my oarty and swapped it with my Lv10 pidgey. I named it Sha-Ka-La. (I was trying to make it sound ancient Egyptian or at least exotic because it was gold)Also I was walking around in either Pokemon Ruby or Pokemon Sapphire and one of the NPC trainers had a shiny swablu.LUCKY!

I caught a shiny Meditite in Platinum. It just randomly in Mt Coronet. In Platinum I also encountered a Shiny Quagsire in the worst place ever! The safari zone. I tried feeding it and it ran away. It looked hungry too!

I was using a save state on Pokémon Gold and at least used the save state 10,000 times (not kidding) for a shiny Lugia.

Well ive had two of the above..with three different situations

The first shiny pokemon i encountered was on pokemon firered. I encountered a shiny sperrow, but then i made a mistake and killed it -.-

My other two encounters were a little more easy on me...
My second encounter was on pokemon soulsilver. My starter was a shiny cyndaquil.
My third and most recent encounter was with a shiny ratatta on one of the pokemon hacks here on vizzed...(i cant remember the name)
I named him Shiver ^^

No, but my brother has. In Pokemon Ruby, he was in Meteor Falls looking for a Bagon, and instead found a shiny Golbat, which he then caught. I hate him.

Technically I have caught two one being the red Gyarados in Crystal but I don't count it because it is programmed into the game. The other shiny being a Pichu I received from an egg (although I don't know where I got the egg from).

I never really got any a shiny before sadly. Its probably because I may not be using the correct method to earn the shiny. It could be that, or the bad luck

I had 5 shiny encounters and all of them were in pokemon rumble, for rumble, when you encounter one, you have a 100% (no joke) chance of catching it. They were:

Shiny Luxio
Shiny Magikarp
Shiny Infernape
Shiny Ryhperior
Shiny Monferno

After 80+ hours of gaming, that is what I got. :LOL:

I have never gotten a shiny pokemon before or anything of the sort.

I haven't played Pokemon THAT much, it is not complete unluckiness. But I do believe bad luck is a part of it.

Well to be honest, I bought Pokemon Black from Replays a while back, and it had over 200 pokemon in storage along with the fact that most of them were shiny. So most of them were caught using an AR device....

On my LG I had a shiny Rapidash, but I was an idiot and started over, and on my HG I found and caught a shiny Spinarak, which I then gave to my brother. Then there was the shiny Tentacool I saw in LG, but I had to knock it out 'cause I ran out of pokeballs trying to catch it.
