    It's all just luck, Minister. It's all just luck. And lots of numbers. I know people that have found two Shinies in a row, one after another. I think it was a Sandslash, then a Claydol or Cofagrigus or something. Idgaf about it personally, but still. What damn luck. :!

    The first one I got was a shiny Duskull which I got from a friend, still have it stored somewhere. The first one I actually caught myself was a Drowzee with I encountered in my Platinum Nuzlocke. It even was the first Pokémon to appear in the area, so it was entirely legal :P

    I was running through a tower in Emerald when I found a shiny Duskull. I was rushing to get somewhere else and I clicked run, wondering what that little sparkle was. An hour later, I realised what I had done, nearly cried (not really, but something like that)

    The first one I actually CAUGHT was a bellsprout in Fire Red (in the little patch of grass above Cerulean), named it "trophy" and decided it would be my main poke while playing through. I evolved to a Victreebel, looked at the sprite... and into my box for the rest of the game.

    I believe mine was a Swinub, right before I got to the Ice Path for the first time.

    On Pearl I believe my first shiny was a Registeel I got from the GTS. I don't remember what I offered but I do remember being elated and then noticing it had a perfect nature, flawless IVs, and the exact move set for a set here on Smogon. Needless to say, I was pissed.

    I just hatched a Shiny Misdreavus (WITHOUT using the Masuda Method or cheats) with perfect Special Attack and Speed IVs and a +Speed nature that isn't Jolly. I was so happy! It's my first Shiny in my new game.

    A long time ago, a Shiny Tentacool. Or a Shiny zubat. I'm thinking a shiny Zubat in Ruby.
    Truth be told, all I remember was the Gyarados in Gen 2, but I a friend found a shiny Sneasel once in Gold.

    Caterpie!

    Lol my first shiny was a gold caterpie I caught during the bug catching contest on the original Pokemon silver. I actually thought I would place first for catching a different colored Pokemon, I didn't, but that didn't bother me. Since a pink butterfree was worth a lot more. I wish you could have transfered your 2 gen pokes to 3 gen.

    I've only ever encountered shinies while playing on emulators for some reason, with the first being a Rattata in Silver on Route 31 (didn't have any pokeballs...). The only other one I've ever seen was a shiny Hariyama on Victory Road in Sapphire, also on an emulator, which ended up being the first one I caught.

    The only shiny I've seen in an honest-to-goodness, non-emulated game was an Oshawott in Black someone traded to me over GTS. My knee-jerk reaction is that it's hacked, but it's only level 15 and has random stats and only natural level-up moves, so I wonder. Someone either wasn't paying attention or they're awfully generous!

    I think it was a shiny Onix in Crystal.

    My most recent was a Plusle... sadly, it was in the battle pyramid in Emerald.

    My first shiny was a shiny Pichu, which hatched out of the Odd Egg in Crystal. Ironically enough, I was reading about shiny pokemon at the time.

    I had only gotten one shiney in 15 years, and that was a rattata in Silver. But I have been playing Heartgold, and have gotten two terrible looking pokemon and shinies, Psyduck with a Calm Nature and Goldeen with a Timid. I believe I may have the worst luck in the world with shinies.

    I found a Shiny Zubat in Platium after about 6 years of playing Pokemon. I swear that must have been, like, the 30,000th wild Pokemon I'd ever seen.

    Slowpoke in Leaf Green. I was in the Ice Cave on the Sevii Islands looking for something that I can no longer remember. I evolved it into a Slowking, which is my favorite of that line, and Palparked it to Pearl. I lost it when I restarted :( I did trade over all of my events to HeartGold, just forgot it was there, oh well...
