I don't see why Shinies would be excluded from this Generation, I'm not really bothered by them but it's always nice when you see one ;)



It's quite simple but it actually looks really good IMO.

Of course they will be there!
Otherwise what happens to any shinies imported from Gen V? (Assuming we will be able to import our Pokémon to Gen VI.)

This is something I am looking forward to, and hopefully shinies will sparkle constantly in-battle instead of sparkling only at the beginning.

There would definitely be shiny Pokémon in Pokémon X and Y, and it would be absolutely amazing with the 3D models of the Pokémon in an alternate colour. It would be cool to see a Pokémon like Fennekin in a more darker red colour. This is what would give the game a really great feel to it and make players once again want to capture the shiny Pokémon.

There's no way Game Freak would forget about something like this. xD

I don't see why shinies should be left out for this Gen. I hope the shiny versions of Pokemon will be alot more noticeable instead of putting them in their regular color with just a darker or lighter tone.

Hmm. I have never been too obsessed with shinies, but I do admit that certain shiny colors, particularly those with softer palettes, are fun to see in battle, and in 3D they can only look better. When the shiny Pokemon have neon bright palettes, it does make me wish I could turn shinies off or something.

Many people brought up shiny locks, but I would also like to see that there are no guaranteed shinies either. It defeats the purpose of the shiny pokemon. Also, it would be nice if shiny pokemon had generally good Iv and whatnot. (Which is what I believe the G/S system was?)

Can't have main Pokemon games without shiny Pokemon <3 (Except in RGBY, of course.) Currently, I can't think up anything for Xerneas and Yveltal (OK, maybe I could see Yveltal being a sort of blue or purple), but I can see Froakie being pink or green instead of blue, Chespin being maybe a darker brown or black with darker green, and Fennekin being silver and white, kind of like Ninetales.

I can't imagine them not being included, Gen I was either because of lack of space or the idea didn't come up at the time, I don't know what they'll look like but hopefully nothing weird like a brown Xerneas or orange Froakie xD

Well if shinies aren't included, then I won't get the game. But I can't see why they wouldn't keep them in there though because it's a crucial part of the game.. for the starters I'm picking Froakie so I want his shiny colors to be cool, maybe a black/lime green with a blue cloud cape? Hopefully the shiny colors are more of a noticeable change from the normal colors (Garchomp ) and the shiny animation could be a circle of stars spinning around the pokemons body and then shoot off in different directions like fireworks or something. Whatever it is, I think it should be attention grabbing..I mean if we're gonna be 3D exclusive now then I don't wanna see little sparkles. Set some shiny bombs off haha

That would be a good idea, it would def make catching a shiny even more special. Or what if they played the normal battle music they're using, but backwards? Ha would be kinda trippy but cool. I'm all for the shiny encounter music.

I would love Shiny Fenekin to look something like that .

I see the frog being green, and Chespin being dark brown with deep green leaves for it's "crown".

I don't see why shinies should be left out for this new generation. As I am a passionate shiny hunter myself, I would be quite upset if this were to happen.

I would definitely love a different battle music for shinies! It would make the encounter so much more meaningful. and exciting They also should perhaps make the shiny sparkles a little more noticeable, as Flydro mentioned above.

Oh, and I would like for the encounter percentage to be raised just a little though. :3

I don't care about shiny,
I want to see they're alternate colors though.

I love shinies, always surprising me when they pop out. Though I haven't seen a single one in my history of playing Gen V, even with the Shiny Charm in BW2. Maybe they could raise the encounter rate slightly?
Who knows, maybe the region's professor will be researching that too, considering all the speculation for DNA and genetics studies.

I agree with this; I don't find that shinies are a "crucial" element of the Pokemon series, but they do add a layer of depth to the Pokemon and are fun to look at.

I wouldn't be heartbroken if they were excluded, but I do say I would prefer for them to be in the game. Although judging from this thread, some people take shinies far more seriously than I do, so it is in Gamefreak's best interest to include shiny Pokemon. I don't understand why they wouldn't though.

pleasepleasepleasePLEASE.


... I don't see why shinies wouldn't be included. Pokemon may be 3D models now but I still see no reason for alternate-colored models to be out of the production process. ^^;;

Shiny Pokemon are very popular and coveted. They wouldn't just be thrown out over a change like sprites to 3D models, I believe. Shiny hunting is something that actually keeps many fans interested in the games upon completion believe it or not... me being one of them. X//D;

They've been doing 3D shinies since Stadium 2, so I don't think any hardcore shiny hunters should worry about it!

I've never done shiny hunting before, but if everybody seems to like it I might give it a try! I once encountered a shiny Lotad before I even had my first badge in Emerald, so I think I have a knack for it... hehe.

...not sure why merge but OK....

So nobody else thinks unique features would be cool? 3d model tweaks are easy

Atleast randomize the colours of shinies either based on genetics, location, or some kind of other factor or even just random

Id rather have a coveted black and pink feraligatr with pale blue eyes and run into someone with a dif color combo and compare, it could make for a real show stopper


And though I dislike shiny lock, I think GF could use 3d model morphs or special colors or effects (like glowing marks) instead

I was hoping for the shiny Fennekin to be pink, that's all I've speculated.

I'm pretty sure they will have shinies, it's not a thing they're going to just stop, I don't think.

It better have shinies! Shinies are amazing...for ideas:
Froakie: PINK! like Mudkip's.
Chespin: Um...just darker colors.
Fennekin: I like that pic of teh white and blue Fennekin(top of page 2)...so yeah, that one.
As for shiny locks...I know this is a bit weird, but I'm hoping for shiny locks on the legendary pokemon. Shiny legendaries are awesome and all...but so much hacking for them! If you see a shiny legendary while trading, chances are that it is a hack(as those that have SR'd *cough* me *cough* are more than likely not going to be wanting to give away their prize after so much effort.)
Shiny guaranteed pokemon like REd Gyarados in G/S/C? ...Nah, that just undermines the concept of a shiny altogether. Say that there's a guaranteed shiny Marill in the game...then when you meet a REAL shiny Marill by luck, it's worthless.

of course they'll be included, if anything the fact that they're using 3d models now should make it easier, just plop a texture in photoshop, adjust the colours with the colour balance tool and voila. No need to recolour every frame of animation like with sprites

Fennekin will probably have yellow and orange reversed. You know, like Torchic.
Chespin will probably have a dark green or an aqua color in its "hoodie" and lighter brown colors.
I´m not so sure about Froakie...Darker blue or yellow perhaps?

I can't imagine shinies being removed, too many people would freak out haha. I would also be interested in alternate colours though, I always thought Pokemon Naranja was especially cool because they changed the colours of things.

One thing I am hoping for is soft resettable shiny legendaries. Zekrom and Reshiram couldn't be shiny, neither Victini, which I found stupid. Heck, just let us soft reset already! If the legendary shiny sprites look nice, I am going to seriously hope the shiny lock hasn't been imposed yet again.
