    I'm wondering what are some favorite shines of Pokemon you can catch in USUM. I need new ideas on what new Pokemon to shiny hunt for. You can also mention any shines you've caught here. Right now, I'm shiny hunting a Paras and shinies I've caught before are a Magikarp/Gyarados, Yungoos, some Ultra Wormhole shinies, and a Roggenrolla/Boldore/Gigalith that my friend is refusing to give back unless I give him a Sableye.

    If we're talking about the best shinies introduced in this generation? Here are the 3 best you can catch, as far as I consider it
    • Raichu: Technically not a Gen VII Pokemon, but the new form and its shiny is Gen VII. And it really works because of the super-tan coloration, quite an improvement over regular shiny Raichu
    • Vikavolt: Charjabug has a decent shiny, but this really sells. Its unique from its previous evolutions, looks pretty slick
    • Minior: Probably my favorite shiny in the franchise so far. Its not just cool black, but also has a rainbow pattern on it

    Snorlax, Feebas and Caterpie. Their colors stand out and the first two were hatched shinies and the third one was an unexpected one.

    I think good shinies are always subjective. We all like different thing. But a few of my favourites that are catchable in USUM (i.e. not egg hatches) are:

    The Pikipek line - I love the pink on Pikipek, and the multi-coloured beak improves with each evolution
    Zorua/Zoroark - Blue is my favourite colour, and it looks so good as the accent colour on Zorua. This changes to purple on Zoroark, which also looks great.
    Braviary - The changes are a bit more subtle, but I think the colour scheme looks better than the original
    Oricorio (Red) - The inversion of the red and black looks great. And you have an added bonus of being able to change the formes using nectars.
    Ribombee and Liligant - I am a sucker for pink shinies, and the addition of pink works really well on these ones.
    Dewpider, Lurantis, Stufful - I just really like these ones
    Phantump - I think the grey scheme makes it look more like a ghost, and really suits it.

    There are also some awesome shiny legendaries you can hunt in the wormholes - Ho-Oh, Lugia, Latios, Latias, Kyogre, Mewtwo, Xernea, Rayquaza... are all amazing, and worth the effort of soft resetting.

    Spritzee has a really nice Shiny coloration! I love the deep blue and the yellow eyes. Honestly, I’m more pressed to find Shiny colorations I like because I find most of them to be pretty ugly.

    Growlithe/Arcanine is a fantastic one to have. Will be always one of my favorites with that gold color.

    Zorua and Zoroark have nice shiny sprites. I no longer collect shinies since I lost interest in that, but if I did I'd have shiny versions of those two fox Pokemon as part of my collection.
