    Once I saw a shiny Ditto, but I thought since it was blue it was water-type. So I used surf and destroyed it. That was my first but my second that I actually caught was a Electrike.

    I have actually found many shinies, randomly, but the first one was a shiny Gyarados in Pearl. ._.

    My first other than Gyarados was a Growlithe that I ran into on Route 37 in Gold. I'm so glad it didn't Roar... although looking back on it, I may have just used a cloned Master Ball. ;)

    EDIT: I may have gotten a shiny Ditto first from the RBY glitch, but that one doesn't really count.

    I found a shiny venonat in my Crystal version in the bug catching contest. Now it's a blue Venomoth. If only there's a way to transfer it to Gen V... :(

    My first shiny I saw before I caught the red Gyarados. I ended up catching a golden Sparrow on Silver version (or maybe Crystal? Probably Silver).

    I've gotten a few shinies personally. I remember failing to catch a shiny Sentret I ran into on Crystal after I had power-leveled my entire team through Red/E4. I literally couldn't touch that level 3 thing and Pokeball after Pokeball failed over and over again. I ran out of balls.

    Hopping over to Gen 3, I believe I've seen more shinies than I've actually caught. I saw a shiny Altaria, Spinda, and Luvdisc in Ruby. Never saw shinies in any other of the Gen 3 games I owned (Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen).

    However in my Diamond version I caught a shiny Bellsprout. Thought it was cool and decided to place it in my PC to trade later on on the GTS. However, I swear up and down that damn thing reverted itself from golden to normal. I've received a few shinies in trades and GTS trades in Gen 4 too, but I guess those don't count.
