After One Thousand Four Hundred Hours total I have 3 legit shinys.
Why are they even part of the fu--ing game if you see ONE every THOUSAND HOURS?
I'm not angry, I'm just saying that making Shiny pokemon more accessible motivates players to obtain them. Good game design, by definition, is design that motivates you to play them game.
Pokemon has always been a game for children. Do they know how to RNG Abuse to get shinys? Hell, They could play for a thousand hours and NEVER even know they EXIST.
Recognize good game design when you see it. The game's target audience is still 10 years old. You can see that in every facet of design.
