I remember picking up Black 1 for the first time, and battling with Bianca with my new Snivy.
I remember the feeling when my little green snake wasn't all that green, and as the sparkles flew, so did my heart.
Unfortunately, I did not have a similar pleasure with my Oshawott in B2... Hopefully, somebody else did.
Post any and all shiny-stories from Gen V (hopefully the new games) here.

I just started posting on Neoseeker for a different game. But anyways, I caught my first non traded shiny in White two a couple weeks ago too. Caught a wild Lilligant while Audino leveling in Castelia city.
I think in earlier generations I've seen 2-3 but that was before I really started paying attention to rumors about Shiny's.

I've been playing Pokémon games a lot for a bit more than 10 years and I've only been lucky with shinies once. I've never been patient enough to do more than 5k SR's for a legendary or starter and, excluding my hoard of Gyarados in Silver, Gold, Crystal, HG and SS, the new Gible and Dratini and all the chained shinies I had in Platinum before it was stolen, I've only found 2 shiny pokémon in the wild in my entire pokémon experience, a Bildoof encountered in Pearl right after I got my first balls that decided not to stay in and, in White, a yellow Drifblim that appeared in a double battle and used Explosion on the first turn, right after I killed its ally and failed to paralyze it and right before I could use my Master Ball on it. At least, I still have my lucky shiny accident (I am the lucky owner of a surprisingly shiny Shadow Misdreavus in one of my Pokémon Colosseum games)! Hopefully I'll get at least one more in the White 2 game I just started .

I saw a shiny Spoink in Black 2, but I was with Bianca and I didn't think to kill her pokemon so she ended up killing it </3 That was the only shiny I've ever seen, minus Gyarados from GSC/HGSS.
