• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Shiny Mystery Dungeon Pokemon?


Sad if there were shinies and they wouldn't join you maybe they removed the shiny factor since it's already hard to get the normal type of pokemon but imagine recruiting shinies is like recruiting Kecleon and they would probably have a decrease in recruitment chance i mean some Pokemon have it lowered enough but to have a shiny and it being the only pokemon you see in the same species as the one you wanted to recruit sadddd.....


Pika, that's right!
Just imagine if you saw a shiny unrecruitable Pokemon (like lets say Charizard) hehehe

I wouldn't call it a shiny glitch, since the Pokemon aren't even using their shiny colorations when it happens.
Shiney pokemon dont exist in MD. Most of the values like evs, natures, genders and shineyness arent in it.

Some pokemon can be a different colour due to glitches and the only different coloured pokemon is the purple kecleon. (and i think he is based on a kecleon from the anime because shiney kecleons arent purple). ;123;

I saw a shiny feebas, recruited it (for some odd reason, it stayed shiny.)
Yeah right. How can that be? did you glitch your games? What colour was it? Do you have a picture? Is this annoying? Will you answer all my questions?


ooo, what's cooking?
there r no discollering glitches in PMD. Most of the time that pokemon appear on a floor ur not in contact, or within sight, of any. After a while if u see a pokemon change color it means it'll be replaced by another pokemon.
Ther are no shinys, and there don't have to be...

What's this code for shinies everyones talking about?

Well, some Pokémon in MD are the wrong colour and I think some like Bulbasaur are closer to their shinie colour than their real colour.


. . .
No, there aren't any shinys in MD. If there was it would suck. Imagine going to fight Articuno/Moltres/Zapdos/whatever boss you can't recruit until after the game, before beating the game, and it was shiny. :/ Then after beating the game and going back, it wasn't shiny.

I think that if this was true, then they would only be shinies after the games completion.

BTW... I think I saw a grey Luvdisc in Silver Trench once, but I'm not exactly sure.
