I recently found a shiny Golduck in White. I missed the sparkling animation and shiny Golduck look quite similar to regular ones, but fortunately I noticed that its beak was orange rather than yellow.

He has a Docile nature and Hidden Power Electric. I have a moveset and EVs planned out for him, but they're very similar to my Simipour's which I just trained. So I'm going to train a Sigilyph first and then train my Golduck so I won't get bored of doing the same thing twice in a row. Meanwhile I'm using Golduck as my Musical guy. He looks great in an afro wig.

i found a shiny male Audino on route 10 while grinding my whole team of 6 pokes to level 80 for the second round of E4. I'm quite pleased with him as he's my 1st shiny in gen 5, and i figured what with me fighting hundreds of those healing buggers it'd be one of, if not the, 1st things to pop up shiny for me :p

the only other shiny i found within the gen4 and gen5 limitations would be my shiny hoothoot i found in platinum. it was during that escort mission in the eterna forest, and i had decided to do some level grinding since all battles were double battles and Cheryl was healing me after every match. low and behold a shiny hoothoot popped up. Cheryl's Chansey seemed to notice as well as it instantly was intent on egg bombing the poor thing to death. luckily i killed her off and caught the Hoothoot in peace :)

Ive actaully had a bit of luck with shiny Pokémon (with out cheating that is) :3
My first was a shiny Torkaol in Shaphire
then a Shiny Chansey in LeafGreen (IN THE SAFRAI ZONE I was SO happy it didnt run away! :3)
Then a Shiny Golbat AND Sharpedo in Emerald.
And a Shiny Gloom AND Seaking in Pearl

and when i restarted my Ruby i the first Pokémon i found was a shiny poochena (to bad i wasnt given any pokeballs yet -_-)

But im REALLY want a shiny Smoochum or a Shiny in V Gen.

I managed to score a Shiny Zubat in that-ice-cave-at-Four-Island-that-I-can't-remember-the-name-of in FireRed. I evolved it into a Crobat, and I transferred it to my Pearl, where it remains to this day.

I have to sadly admit I'm a lame cheater, I get all my shinies artificially. However, I think I have may run across one once when I was new to the games. I just didn't realize it.

I captured a shiny Chatot in my Diamond, A shiny Elekid in my SoulSilver or HeartGold (I don't remember which one), and a shiny Stunfisk in my Black. I kept the Elekid and Chatot, but traded away the Stunfisk for an shiny Riolu (Some idiot that guy was!)

I have to disagree with you on that. Based purely on the fact they are both shiny (as I know nothing about their ivs) I would go with the stunfisk. Shiny riolu and lucario are kind of ugly and shiny stunfisk's colors are nice. However I love my shiny stunfisk so maybe I am partial. It helps that he took out N's reshiram and Cynthia's lucario all by himself while being levels lower than them and possessing awful stats and a hindering nature. P:

That's the thing with Stunfisk; you either love him or you don't, and I don't. And the reason I would choose the shiny riolu line despite its ugly color scheme is because I loved my non-shiny riolu from Platinum. So from Platinum I already liked the riolu line, which made me want to trade the stunfisk for the riolu

A few weeks ago, I was at Route 35, trying to catch a yanma, when I encountered a shiny nidoran♀. This was the first one I ever seen, so I was really shocked and happy, naturally. Since then, it has evolved into a Nidoqueen, but she's not apart of my team, because she's an ugly dark-green.

I am hoping to encounter any kind of shiny Pokemon and successfully catching it, since I have never caught a shiny.
I'll update when I finally manage to get one. Let's see how long it takes.
UPDATED: I JUST CAUGHT MY FIRST EVER SHINY!!!

It's a level 33 female Audino.

I had never encountered a shiny before and my 2 closest friends each had encountered and caught multiple, It was a day after HG's release and I was going through the ice cave and boom bam I encounter a shiny swinub. My next and most recent was while IV breeding my shiny flawless Japanese scizor...I got a shiny scyther right after pretending I got one in the egg hatch before.

My first shiny I ever encountered was a Tranpinch and after that a Wingull. Since I was a kid I didn't know they were shiny though I did notice the colouring was different so I thought it was a glitch :p

I have encountered a bunch of shiny Pokemon--more than any of my friends. However, that doesn't mean I have caught all I've seen.

The first Shiny Pokemon I had ever seen was a Makuhita (M) in my Emerald. I had nothing but a Master Ball at the time and intended to catch Rayquaza with it, I regret that now..
The Second Shiny I had ever seen was a female Steelix in my Platinum. I killed her with my Garchomp's Surf when my hand slipped when I was going to use false swipe.
The third Shiny Pokemon I had ever seen, and the first one I successfully caught was my Graveler/Golem in my HeartGold. His Name was CrapSphere, but upon transferring it to White, I renamed it Tectonic. He is the Brave Nature.
The fourth Shiny I had ever encountered, I should have killed, A shiny Unown A. I thought it was kind of funny how it was an Adamant Nature and it was shaped like an A, so I called it Alpha.
The fifth and luckiest encounter is one that will probably never happen again. On the release date for Pokemon White, I was in Wellspring Cave, looking for a male Woobat. It seemed that all of them were female (Approximately 13 Encounters), and guess what? A shiny Woobat appeared! Female as well as the others. She is the Mild Nature and named Swoon.
Number six was on April Fools, perfect timing game... I was in my World Geography class, watching a video and encountered a shiny Golett. I had watched too much Fullmetal Alchemist at the time and named it Alphonse. It has the Impish Nature.
Number seven was at School as well, the first Shiny Pokemon out of a cave, Solrock. It was in the Giant Chasm Area in a double battle with Metang. I used earthquake to knock Metang out first, slowly decreased it's health and caught it with an Ultra ball hoping it would not use Explosion.

None of those were intentional, I don't have that much time to do something like that, however I am trying to get a shiny Druddigon, Male or female.
