    Thumbs down Your LEAST favorite shiny!

    Hey guys, I know this topic has been posted before, but its realllllyyy old, (Last post was like in 2010, yikes!) and I wanted some fresh opinions, so I hope no one minds if I make a new one!


    I was just wondering which shiny you guys absolutely can't stand?

    Were you disappointed when your shiny baby evolved into a pukey mess?

    For me, my absolute BIGGEST disappointment was Dratini > Dragonair > Dragonite.
    Oh god, how did he go from that adorable pink

    to this sewage green with purple wings?!

    I also am not fond of shinies with minimal color change, like only being slightly darker and whatnot.. though I'd certainly take that over puke green. x.0

    I can't stand with Garchomp's shiny sprite. It's somewhat the same color, just slightly changed.

    I have always disliked Garbodor's shiny. Blue and Purple chunks just look like blue and purple chunks, but green and orange chunks look a lot like vomit.


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    Garchomp. Its colors are so vague you'd think it was the normal Garchomp colors at first.

    General shoutout to all shinies that look almost exactly like their normal forms. Let me scan through and find some who, unless I view the two forms side-to-side, I cannot tell whether or not it's even shiny.

    - Squirtle
    - Pichu/Pikachu/Raichu
    - Rhydon
    - Articuno
    - Zapdos
    - Togepi/Togetic/Togekiss
    - Mantine
    - Regice
    - Piplup
    - Burmy/Wormadam (all forms)
    - Shellos/Gastrodon (both forms)
    - Garchomp (By far the worst offender)
    - Munchlax
    - Heatran
    - Manaphy/Phione
    - Carracosta
    - Dwebble
    - Deerling/Sawsbuck
    - Galvantula
    - Tornadus/Thundurus (both forms)
    - Keldeo

    I'm sure some of those are obvious to a fair majority of you, but that's just my list of shinies who are WAY too close to their normal colors for me to even notice without a side-by-side comparison.

    As for one which stands out to me otherwise, Nidoqueen. This is mainly because I love how Nidoking takes on her colors when shiny, but she doesn't return the favor. Such a waste.

    I wanted to go into the Pokémon world and exterminate all Garchomps when I first saw those horrible shiny colors. He's a disgrace to the other shinies.

    Definitely Gyarados, Haxorus, Infernape, Typhlosion, Flygon, Sneasel, Lugia, Dunsparce, and Charizard by far for me. Oh yeah and I like Garchomps shiny color, even a little color palette makes it look better than original Garchomp personally.

    Shiny Garchomp. Its colours don't possess much of a difference to its normal form.

    As much as I love Arcanine, and it is my favourite Pokemon. Yellow instead of Orange really just makes me cringe.

    Lugia and Swampert. Both awesome designs and they used pink which I can't stand. Swampert looks especially terrible, and I thought Lugia had so much more potential.

    Garchomp and Bidoof. Garchomp, because I had to compare two pictures to see the shiny difference. (It was an awesome Pokemon, they should've kept Gible's shiny colors.) Bidoof, because the little yellow tinge just doesn't look good to me.

    It's still not funny.

    Arceus, that yellow looks awful.

    In fact, I named my shiny Espeon Miku, after Miku Hatsune, due to having these colors:

    I can't stand Seel/Dewgong, Meowth/Persian, Abra/Kadabra, Gible line, Goldeen, Scyther... and pretty much every other shiny pokemon that has a slight color change (Scyther has a little darker of a green shade, and Seel has a slight tan shade). Imagine seeing an actual shiny, but seeing as its colors are strikingly similar to the original colors, you would just run/kill it (most likely happened to me in my younger years).

    But the worst shiny of them all has to be, in my opinion, Zapdos. For a 1st generation legendary pokemon, you would think they would atleast change its color to an opposite color, but Zapdos had to get the worst color change. Atleast Moltres and Articuno's shiny sprites look somewhat different than their original sprites

    Only problem is, Emerald is a much darker shade of green...

    My least favorite has to be Staraptor. It's one of my favorite pokémon, so I can't stand the blandness of its shiny form. There was a lot of potential for Staraptor...

    A few of the shinies I hate most are

    Psyduck - Golduck looks okay, even if it's not the most noticable, but bright blue Psyduck looks really off to me.
    Seel/Dewgong - I can't even see the colour change at all.
    Goldeen/Seaking - For barely having a colour change and still managing to look worse.
    Wobbuffet - Bright pink doesn't look right on Wobbuffet.
    Sharpedo - A horrid shade of purple/pink...
    Kyogre - Another case of that horrid purple/pink colour.
    Honchkrow - More purple/pink.
    Garchomp - The infamous case of "is it shiny... I honestly have no fudgin' clue"
    Stoutland - It's seriously a horrid green/orangey colour :S

    There are other barely noticable shinies I dislike also, Wormadam and Blaziken being just 2 for example, but they weren't bad enough to get on the worst shiny list. But I do wish GameFreak or whoever decides the shiny colours would stop that XP
    I don't mind small differences, but some are so similar it ruins the fun. Blissey is one shiny who is close to it's original colour but still works because it's different enough for me.

    Anyways, yeah, Stoutland is probably THE WORST for me... And I have a shiny Herdier, haha. Guess who's never evolving.
