Re: When did you get your first shiny ?
I got my first one in Red version, actually. I caught a random Poliwhirl and for some reason I decided to trade it to Gold Version. Once it was sent over, I realised it was actually Shiny! I still think it's extremely lucky, not only cos Shinies are so rare but because I actually decided to trade it to a second gen game at all. xD
In third gen I didn't even find ONE shiny. :(
