Re: When did you get your first shiny ?
I got a shiny Psyduck on my friend's Pearl version, which he reluctantly gave to me (finders-keepers, losers-weepers!). That was the first one that I had ever seen, but on my own games, I've gotten a shiny Makuhita in Platinum. It was during a swarm. The worst feeling? Seeing a shiny in a Nuzlocke run when you've already got a Pokemon on that route...
