Despite having played the Pokémon series for almost a decade now, I had never encountered a shiny Pokémon in the wild (save for the Red Gyarados in GSC/HGSS) until Generation VI.
I have videos for every shiny that I catch as to have documented evidence of my shinies. You can see them here: http://www.YouTube.com/user/LinooneShiny/
*'''FIRSTIES!!! the Luvdisc - October 16th, 2014 - CAUGHT''' - I caught this fellow while chain fishing the little critters in Pokémon Y. I was not actually trying to find a shiny, I was chaining them to get Heart Scales. I was only on my sixth encounter when I got this golden beauty. Caught it in an Ultra Ball.
*'''UpperBodyDay the Makuhita - November 21st, 2014 - CAUGHT''' - I was playing through Pokémon Omega Ruby on the day of its release. I was in Granite Cave and this red Makuhita was my first encounter in the area. Caught it in a Poké Ball.
