Well not actually my first shiny. I have a gyrados and pidgeotto on that same game. On another I have a rhypherior, miolotic, arceus, and slaking. I think maybe one more. But this is the first shiny I actually caught. All the others I got from trades. And it's a weedle. Which means that I get a shiny beedrill. Which I wanted. I am so glad I was paying attention. I didn't even try to battle it though because I was worried I might faint it-even though I did have a lv.9 bulbasaur on my team-so I just threw a quick ball and caught it. I was so freaking excited. Finally. After about three whole years of playing games I caught my first non-event shiny!!!!!! Yay! *dances around in a circle and faints* I'm so happy and I'm going to train him to be a beedrill

Congrats! I remember how happy I was when I first caught my shiny Trapinch on Emerald oh so long ago. That was the only shiny I've ever caught without it being that Red Gyarados. Sorry for being nine days late ^.^"

Nidorino, if you don't count the Gyrados. I caught it on my second time chucking a safari ball at it.

Okay then.
I am a huge fan of Dragonite and would love a shiny one named Puff. This describes me perfectly.

congrats! i don't think i've ever gotten a shiny in any game, come to think of it... a naturally-obtained one, anyway. heheh. sweat.gif i never had the patience for shiny-hunting in-game. but the first shiny i got on GPX+ was... pinsir. i wasn't trying for it at all, and i remember being incredibly disappointed that i didn't get a two-for-one shiny because pinsir.gif has no evolution.

My first shiny was in Diamond. I was walking around in Iron Island when I come across this weird looking Graveler. I had no idea shinies even existed at this point, so I thought, "What's up with this thing?" I wanted to catch it really badly and see if my brother knew what it was. I caught it, showed it to my brother, and he said he'd never seen anything like it. Then one day, my friend and I were hanging out, and I said, "Hey, look at this weird looking Graveler I found." He looked at it was like "WTF!? You got a shiny!?"

The first time I saw a shiny, I was playing Sapphire, I was 9 years old, and I had no idea what a shiny was! I just thought it was really weird that I'd run into a Poochyena that seemed to be yellow, so fortunately I went ahead and caught it for that reason alone. Unfortunately I've lost track of it since then (I think I restarted my game, but forgot to trade the Poochyena over to another game first), but ever since then I've been fond of shiny Poochyenas...

Wow! The stories attached to you guys' shinies are incredible! I've got a story, too.

My first Shiny was caught on the first run of my Pokemon Pearl. I was training some Pokemon in that cave between Oreburgh and Jubilife City. Can't remember the name of it, though. Anyway, I had just gotten through levelling my Gible up a bit and I was about to leave the cave. As I reached the exit, something reared it's ugly head.
A Zubat.
But it didn't look like any Zubat I had ever seen before. It was green with pink wings. I stared at it, trying to figure out what in God's name happened to my game before it finally clicked. When I finally realized what was going on, I screamed, "Oh, shit," and immediately threw a Quick Ball at it. Easiest catch ever.
I named it Greenie. cat.gif

My second Shiny was in a rerun of my Firered version. I was in the Power Plant looking for Zapdos when I tripped over a Shiny Magnemite. Invited it into my party immediately after naming it Bronze.

My first shiny was a Rapidash in my heartgold game. I was training my team to take on red and was watching tv at the same time so at some point i look down on my screen and go wait your flames are grey instead of orange...SHINY!!!! I threw a quickball at her if I recall correctly and have had her ever since.

Random Picks



My first ever shiny was followed shortly after by a second shiny. I was playing Platinum; first one was a Bidoof, the second was a Zubat in the nearby cave, not even an hour after the first. The odds were so utterly ridiculous that I thought the game was glitching.

Here's the twist though: that Platinum wasn't mine; it was a rental game from the movie rental place. I had no other Pokemon games at the time (or else I wouldn't have rented it in the first place) so I couldn't trade the shinies to anything. Damn the lucky little twat who rented that game after me and was able to transfer them.
