Honestly, I've never seen a shiny on my games either

This website is fun!

The first time I ever played a Pokemon game. I borrowed Pokemon Silver from a friend at school. Erased his save (didn't know 'new game' would write over the only available slot), and within the first few hours encountered a golden crabby. Thought it was a bit odd, but as I had a crabby already, I killed it like the rest.

You can imagine how this story went over with my friend the next day.

Since then I've only encountered (and caught) one shiny, but I've had two wonder-traded to me in X/Y, and I've been given a few by The Pokemon Company. Most awesomely this year, a shiny Mewtwo with it's hidden ability.

How do you improve your chances of finding a shiny? I have genuinely never seen one!

I have only encountered one shiny, because I am new to this Pokemon thing. However when I caught it I didn't know it was shiny I just wanted to catch it because it was a different color and I thought that was normal. I found out later from a friend when I said that I caught a pink sneasal and he was like "I hope you caught it because that was a shiny." Regardless it was difficult to catch and I have been taught not to attack shinies at all that you should just go for the catch right away.

I was KO'd by a shiny Buneary once. I only had one poisoned pokemon with about 30 HP left and was heading back to town when it appeared. The fight lasted about 5 seconds and there may have been some swearing afterwards XD
