Seven days and no comments? You must be unlucky, I bet it was Hidma's fault.

Well, I really liked it. I thought it was a very interesting perspective on the concept of shiny Pokemon, which I had always before seen as just a variation in color. I liked how the events that came as a result of Hidma being an omen were directly caused by the idea of him being an omen. It certainly provided a nice look at the group psychology of Houndour/doom. I also thought it was a nice touch how you capitalized "Human." It seemed to reduce the size of the barrier between people and Pokemon.

I did spot one glaring grammatical error:

but I whipped the rodent back in the opposite direction with my tail, and give a loud howl that made all the Humans shiver in fear.

"Give" should be "gave."

I wouldn't say this is a grammar mistake, but it feels awkward:

The Arbok slid out of the way just in time, and moved forward again at Midva, fangs primed to strike her again; yet I threw myself at the snake again, bumping it off target as it hissed in frustration.
For one thing, it's an awfully long sentence. And, the quick reusage of the word "again" doesn't help the flow much.

Nitpicks aside, great job!
