Have you ever looked at a shiny version of a Pokemon and said "Why did they choose those colors?"

Example: Mew: Pink-Blue

Are there any you don't like?

Hmm...probably Mega Charizard X. While Y has a majestic lavender coloring, X is...too colorful.

Oh man, there are PLENTY of shiny sprites that I have been disappointed by, but I won't go on a rant about each one and take to much of your time. XD I'll make a quick list of the ones that look kinda dumb to me.

Pikachu, Raichu, Nidoqeen, Paras, Meowth, Persian, Bellsprout, Seel, Dewgong, Gengar, Goldeen, Seaking, Zapdos, Dragonite, Bayleef, Igglybuff, Togepi, Togetic, Sunkern, Unknown, Octillery, Smoochum, Blissey, Surskit, Trapinch (but shiny FLygon is amazing so it's okay Tongue), Starly, Staravia, Bidoof, Bibarel, Burmy, Wormadam, Shellos, Garchomp, Hippopotas, Finneon, Lumineon, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Basculin, Dwebble, Scraggy, Tynamo... I haven't seen many 6th Gen shinies, but from what I've seen, I don't like Chespin's evolution line's colors.

As a general rule of thumb, the ones that barely have their color pallets changed, and the ones that turn into an ugly green or brown, or just have a HORRID color combination! >.<

I think for me, one of the biggest disappointments was Garchomp. If I was battling someone and they didn't see the shiny animation, they would probably think it was just a normal Garchomp. With such a detailed and interesting design, I believe that they could've turned Garchomp's shiny pallet into something that catches the eye a little more. Why you do dis GameFreak? T^T

In my opinion, I don't get why Cofagrigus goes from the Egyptian golds and blues, to pinks and silvers... It just never honestly made sense. I also don't get how Lugia goes from this vicious and beastly looking Pokemon, to a Pink, loveable looking Pokemon :?

I don't like the shinies that change the color by a few shades.. It just doesn't make sense. Most starter Pokemon are like that -_-
