There's a lot of people who go crazy over the shiny variants of Pokemon, and prefer those over the normal variant. Which do you prefer and why?

I'm mixed, tbh. I think some shiny Pokemon look amazing, while others, not so much. It all depends on the Pokemon, but for the most part, I'm not a huge fan of the shiny Pokemon.

Some pokemon like Shiny Milotic and Wigglytuff are to die for, but when it comes to pokemon like blissey or garchomp, their regular versions look more appealing in my opinion. I honestly only go crazy over pokemon that go through dramatic and colorful changes when shiny (like Reuniclus for example), and if their regular forms look better, than I just use those instead. Some shiny forms have an ugly shade of green or yellow as well, so I guess it all just depends on the pokemon's design and their color palette that signifies how much hype they get. (Don't get me started on all Black shinies like Rayquaza and Charizard).

I actually love and prefer shiny Charizard and Rayquaza over the regular forms. Tongue

That was my point. =p Pokemon with dramatic color changes, like Charizard and Rayquaza, usually get the most praise since they turn black, a very contrasting color. Wink

I prefer shiny Pokemon, but not them all. Pokemon with subtle color changes really shouldn't count (like Garchomp). I also don't like Pokemon with ugly shiny coloring. (Sneasel and Weavile, they are probably the UGLIEST shiny Pokemon).

Shiny ones. They're pretty and obviously more rare. You need a lot more effort to catch them. I like challenges. And you must have lots of time to go looking for them. xD

It really depends for me. Sometimes I would prefer the normal one if the shiny doesn't look all too appealing, but if the shiny looks absolutely gorgeous, why not break a neck or two hunting for one? ^_^

I much prefer the shiny Pokemon. I guess I'm just to attracted to shiny things, plus, they are rarer that the non-shiny Pokemon.

Like many of you, I enjoy specific shiny pokemon. Some are terrible but some are pretty cool. Shiny Crobat= Sad Shiny Pinsir= Smile so really its just a matter of preference... and FYI I think shiny sneasal/weaville are awesome looking Tongue
