My first shiny was a Natu in the Safari Zone in Gen 3 when I was 9. I was looking up cheat codes if there were something useful to beat the E4 until I came across about the shiny Natu. It said that a shiny Natu would appear in a certain location in the Safari Zone if you were popping a wheelie with the Acro bike. I didn't know that's not that a shiny pokemon appearing is by chance, but I was young back then. I did it and after a few tries the shiny Natu appeared.

Rattata. It was the only non-Gyarados shiny I caught in gen 2 and remained the only one I found and successfully caught until gen 5 so it was pretty special for me.

A shiny ditto in Emerald. I was really excited, but at the same time disappointed that it didn't transform into other shiny 'mons.

A shiny charmeleon in a friend safari in Y.

I was only allowed to have my own pokemon game at 16 (Pokemon Y in 2013, blame it on strict parents while growing up), before that i was playing on emulator with older games
So i was just looking for a female braixen for whatever reason and instead i get a sparkly golden boi.

His name is Yaguul and he is my best friend whomstd've i love and cherish, i'll take him to every gen

It was a Zubat in the Dark Cave. I had no idea that shinies were a thing and panicked because I thought my game was glitching. Killed it right fast.

I didn't learn about shinies until I ran into the Gyarados later in the game. Even then, I had no idea how rare shinies really were. Also encountered a shiny Delibird in Ice Cave but it fled the battle. I had 999+ hours invested in Silver since it was my first pokemon game ever.

Mine was a Caterpie I came across in the National Park in Silver, which eventually evolved into a pink Butterfree. At the time I had no idea random shinies were a thing, and I think a trainer in-game specifically mentioned a pink Butterfree in relation to the red Gyarados, so I assumed it existed in every game as a reference to the one from the anime.
