Thanks, Cyndajay, cpchris, and Jessara!
Congrats to JAWAYami on their shiny Hoppip! Cute!
I will be! I really want to SR for a shiny Chespin at this point in time, though I do like all of them! It's just that I've wanted a mammalian grass starter for so long, and Chespin is really cool/cute.

It might not mean anything at all, but I refer to the blinking Froakie. In the other games, they've always been static images/sprites, apart from the "machine" set up used in HGSS. Does that mean that the starters standing there are the actual ones you will choose? That means that you might be able to see a shiny before you pick one again! I both equally like that and find it a little annoying. Because you might keep on getting shiny Froakie when you want a shiny Fennekin. And being a shiny hunter, how could you just abandon a shiny Froakie, even if it's your fifth one???
But hey, who knows? You might, and probably will, still have to select each one and check its summary.
Congratulations on the Treecko. But, please, why trade it? I think that's sad! I think you should keep it, but ultimately it's up to you. If you don't really care for shiny Pokémon, then you do what you want with it. But you might get attached to it if you do use it and you might also regret trading it down the track.
