Your LEAST favorite shiny!


Tory is my fav ♥
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


Bibarel's adorable.
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.

Garchomp of course!

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.


Custom title: If specified, this will replace the
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.

Inb4 Krookodile everything.


Thou enraged?
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.

Toxic Nightshade

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.


Team Awesome
Espeon. It looks too Martian.


Ace Trainer
Any pokemon with a slight colour change for a shiny. It seems lazy to me.

Jolteon, ew! And most shinies that have only a slight change. :c
