About me: First got into Pokémon around 2010, with SoulSilver being my first game.  I only played casually, which grew boring after getting and completing White.
A few years later, I got back into it competitively through Showdown!, which I used in favor of the actual games for a while until getting Ultra Sun.

My Shinies, in order of me finding them: (53 seen, 50 caught)
* Gyarados in SoulSilver - doesn't count
- Pidgey in SoulSilver - met a tragic end at the hands of an unlucky crit. My first shiny fail
* Gyarados in HeartGold - once again, doesn't count
* Vanillite in White - Grew up to become a Vanilluxe as a part of my in-game team
> Mewtwo in HeartGold - My first successful shinyhunt
* Unown (L) in HeartGold - Hilariously enough, I think I remember encountering this one with my Shiny Mewtwo
* Heatmor in White - Caught and left mostly untouched
* Zubat in LeafGreen - Migrated to SoulSilver several days after capture. Now a Crobat
* Sandshrew in SoulSilver - A lucky catch at the mercy of the Safari Zone. Now a Sandslash
* Rattata in SoulSilver - now a Raticate
* Tangela in SoulSilver - Caught and left completely untouched
- Mr. Mime in SoulSilver - Once again at the mercy of the Safari Zone. Not so lucky this time; second shiny fail
* Abra in SoulSilver - A very lucky catch, only to still be completely untouched
> Rayquaza in Emerald - My second successful shinyhunt, and my personal favorite shiny in my collection
> Shinx in SoulSilver - Found in a wild encounter after 1019 encounters (shiny inclusive), 503 of which were Shinx, in addition to 1387 Shinx eggs; 1890 Shinxes total.  Later transferred to White. Now a Luxray.
> Litwick in White - Found after 7328 wild encounters.  Now a Chandelure.
* Golbat in Emerald - Guess this means I'll have two shiny Crobats now. That's cool I guess.
> Eevee in Ultra Sun - A phenomenally short hunt after only 91 SOS calls. Now an Umbreon.
> Pikipek in Ultra Sun - 235 SOS calls. This game makes shinyhunting too easy. Traded for a Trevenant to be used in the Beldum shinyhunt.
* A-Meowth in Ultra Sun - Phase 1 shiny during Zorua hunt
> Zorua in Ultra Sun - 443 SOS calls
> Beldum in Ultra Sun x3 - The first one was a 56 calls, which I accidentally killed because I was busy feeding pets while it was being called, and didn't realize it was shiny until the fainting animation. The second one was at 101 calls on the same chain, and was Adamant. The third took an additional 73 calls (174 calls total) and is finally Jolly.
> Exeggcute in Ultra Sun x17 - All given away in a giveaway for Easter.
> Togepi in Ultra Sun - was planning to also farm Togepis for Easter, but chaining is so easy, and I decided to devote time to Exeggcute than waste time on Togepi.
* Stunfisk in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Quagsire in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Hippowdon in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Drapion in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Audino in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Medicham in Ultra Sun x2 - Ultra Wormhole
* Crustle in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
* Abomasnow in Ultra Sun - Ultra Wormhole
> Drifloon in Ultra Sun - Found after 408 SOS calls.

> Vulpix in SoulSilver (on hold)
> Trapinch in Emerald (on hold)

Did you know that the last 249 pages of the database's users page is nothing but 20 point users?

PS. The 890 in my username is pronounced "eight ninety."  Not "eight nine zero," not "eight hundred ninety," not "eighty-nine zero."  It's just "eight ninety."  IT'S. NOT. THAT. HARD.
