I believe it was a shiny Minccino in Pokemon Black. It was a totes random encounter and I did manage to catch it while hyperventilating that I finally found a random shiny after like, five generations.

It went rip though because I restarted the game without trading the mon over like a dumbutt.

It was a Feebas in Alpha Sapphire, I think.

My first shiny (That I remember at least) was a shiny Staryu in Pokemon Y when I was breeding for a competitive Starmie and I traded it away for a Competitive pokemon as I don't really care about shinies

the red gyarados doesn't count but that one was it

The first Shiny Pokemon I ever encountered was a Ponyta, on Diamond. It was a totally random, natural encounter, and I did indeed manage to catch it! I nicknamed it Blue Flare. That Ponyta is now a Rapidash, and I've still kept it on that same Diamond save file.

I only got two shinies in the wild in my lifetime, discounting the guaranteed ones like Gyrados and a couple in Gen 5. The first was Sneasel in Platinum, and the second was Solosis in White. I still have them with me to this day thankfully, and it helps they look pretty cool as well!

I've actually never seen a shiny pokemon in the wild. I've tried to hunt for a shiny shinx because I thought it was awesome looking. I didn't really have the patience to keep hunting though.

The first shiny I found was a Medicham in Diamond Version. I had no idea what shinies were, but I caught it and thought I could breed to get more differently-coloured meditite: I found out I was wrong :lolazurill: restarted that save profile years ago, though (smh)

My first shiny was a Scorupi in Pokemon Black 2. I had started the game as a nuzlocke but I gave up and was just playing casually when I found this. I was actually in the nurse's office because I felt terrible but finding this was incredible! I caught it and evolved it. I LOVED the bright red color, but when I transferred it to the 3DS, the shiny was way more muted and lame. I really hate how they muted the colors.

Comparison:


Looking at it now, it doesn't seem so bad, but I think the sprite is definitely superior. I think many Pokemon suffered in the shift to 3D.

My first Shiny Pokemon was a Corsola in Pokemon X. I had always wanted to try shiny hunting, and one day I said screw it. I looked up how to chain fish, and successfully caught my Corsola. Its name was Coral blue 5 (Props to you if you get the reference). Sadly, i lost access to that copy of X a few years back so my Shiny is Gone.

I don't remember it very well so I'm not entirely sure, but I believe my first shiny was a Litleo in Y. I never used it so I have no idea what happened to it; I either restarted my game or it's been in my Pokebank for 4 years.

Besides the shiny Gyarados from GSC, the first shiny I got was a shiny Fearow in gen 4. I forget if it was Pearl or Platinum, but I remember it being a gen 4 game in one of the post game locations. I was just walking through some tall grass when a shiny Fearow spawned. I did catch it!

Honestly I don’t remember. The first shiny I remember encountering was Arbok. It was in Pokémon Gold on the route next to Silver Mt iirc. Caught it luckily. And yes it was totally random. I didn’t even know back then that you ca actually hunt for them because I didn’t even know what to call this phenomenon.

My first encountered shiny was a boldore which I found in Vast Poni Canyon in Pokemon Sun. I caught it, traded it to evolve into a gigalith and it now resides in my ultra moon game! Sidenote but I'm really happy with the colours of that shiny line, they look so gorgeous.

My first shiny was a shiny Fearow in Pokemon Pearl. I used the Poke Radar a couple of times and found it.
