I scrolled through every thread here to be sure it didn't already exist. I know it has, but there is no current version.

What is your favorite shiny Pokemon?
I am in the process of leaving PC and IRC channels associated with it.

When choosing a favorite shiny it is hard because there are so many cool ones haha. But Gigalith is my favorite shiny due to how awesome his colors are.

I'm annoyed at how Gamefreak treated Shiny Pokémon; they introduce the concept with a Shiny Gyarados, which looks SO different (and so awesome) in comparison to it's standard colouring. And then, for so many other Shiny Pokémon, they're merely a slightly different shade to their regular colouring:

(to be fair Squirtle's shell is green but otherwise he's the same)

And, of course, there's the unnecessary love of neon-green:

(Note that the three examples are from Generation II alone!)

However, in the case of some others, the changes are at least significant enough for me to be able to appreciate them, such as the afformentioned (and unfortunately common) Gyarados (and there are some others I like, of course):

This one's called 'Red', and it's actually kinda Pokémon themed, so have a listen! Check out the links below for more stuff, if you like this!

Though I've never encountered a single shiny in over 14 years of playing the games, I still have love for shiny Ninetales.

I don't care how overrated he is (how hipster-ish, haha), I really love Shiny Charizard. Back in black, baby.

Shiny Sandslash looks like it's been rolling in blood.

Shiny Machamp is obviously the Hulk...which is amazing.

And Shiny Rapidash looks like a steed from hell.

And that's just Gen I! Jeez....

Shiny Rapidash is cool indeed, but shiny Ponyta is better imo.

My favorites are probably Cryogonal and Sneasel though. Dem chains and dat pink/yellow.

Here are some others I kinda like:

I noticed something. Gen 1 has a love for neon green. Gen 2 has a love for pink. Gen 3 has a love for autumn brown/orange. And I seem to have a love for blue shinies, haha.

Rayquaza is awesome as a shiny... Well now that I think about it both Kyogre and Groudon are both awesome as shinys as well... I think legendaries get so love by gf. They try to make them good as shinys. Ho-oh and Lugia are awesome too. Non legends though I like Swampert and Scrafty

I think it should be obvious who my favorite shiny is, given my current posting theme. Nidoking is my favorite Pokemon, and when I found out his shiny form is blue (one of my favorite colors), it was just perfect. I still haven't caught a shiny Nidoking in the games. Some day.

I've never encountered a shiny in the wild so I can't pick any on sentimentality unfortunately.

Gyarados is up there due to being the original and the only one no hopers like me will ever get, it also actually looks good.

Pidgeot's is my probably my favourite. I love Pidgeot as it is, but its shiny makes it looks so majestic.

I've always like shiny Pokemon that really differ from their normal color schemes. Some of the first that come to mind that I really like are Azumarill, Magikarp, Rapidash, Ninetales, Dragonite, Lucario and Rayquaza. There are dozens more that are pretty good, too, but I hate when they look like the first few that giradialkia pointed out, where they're just a slight change in shade.

Some of my favourite shiny Pokemon include: Ludicolo, Shuckle, Mothim, Seismitoad, Heatmor, Gigalith and Bravairy. I suppose if you look at it, I'm quite a fan of those with a good splash of blue. 8)

Don't ask me why because I honestly do not know. But if I had to choose a favorite shiny Dunsparce would have to be it.

I have a lot of other shinies that I like, but I generally seem to like a lot of the pink shinies (Aipom, Mareep, Furret) with others like Sandslash, Ludicolo, Manetric, Shinx, etc etc.

Ninetales. The only Pokemon more beautiful than a Ninetales is a shiny Ninetales.

The last post in this thread was from June, which is past the one-month revival date for old threads. Please make sure that you're looking at how old the last post is before posting in a thread yourself.

And normally, I'd encourage you to remake a topic if you can't find an active one, but we already have a favorite shiny Pokemon thread on the first page. If you want to continue discussing, please do it over there. Thanks!
