Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Shiny Rayquaza and Charizard are super cool, 'cause they're black and black is always such a super cool color, right guys?
I probably like Shiny Charizard so much because it's one of my most beautiful and valuable Pokemon cards. The Ralts line and Shinx line are also neat. Shiny Kangaskhan was cool in G/S/C but got boring afterwards.

My least favorite is probably all those that are just gross yellow or green (Mismagius, Sandshrew, Spinda, Zubat/Golbat)... Also the ones that barely change at all (Pikachu, Latios, ESPECIALLY Garchomp).

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Latios changes more then, say pikachu or Bidoof. He turns from sky blue to mint green.
Oh, it is mint green... I remembered it being some ugly shade of cyan. :B He'll go into the "yellow or green" category then. Though not quite as ugly a green.
I think it would've been cooler if shiny Latios were red and shiny Latias were blue... Back when I was really little I had some Nidoran that were like that when I took them into Pokemon Stadium. The male was blue and the female was purple. x3

You have to admit that Golden Magikarp is awesome :)

I have a Lv100 Shiny Magikarp that completely kills Lv4 Bidoof.

Red Gyarados is very nice because it makes me remember the days when I first played Gold.

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

I really like Shiny Persian (pink kitty that isn't uglymewpink!), Tyranitar, Roserade (purple and black go together well..)., Purugly, Lopunny(a nice shade of pink for it, imo), Umbreon (blue and black are a nice combo), and Shaymin.

I don't like shiny Mew. I just... don't. But then again I don't like Mew that much normally...

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

I like most of them. My favorites are Umbreon, Skitty (redness =D), Jolteon, Cyndaquil line (more redness =DD), and Charizard.

The worst? Well:
Worst, for me, are all the water types that are horrishly pink or purple, like swampert. They look like the vomit of a unicorn.
XD

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

I love anything that has blue on it (since blue is my favorite color), and I think Ponyta/Rapidash and Umbreon are one of the best blue shines.

Anything neon or extremely bright I hate. Kind of like...Espeon. I don't like it's green color. Also I don't like shinies that basically just look like the original, since that basically ruins the point of having a new color. Like Pikachu, Glaceon, and Garchomp.
 

Erindor the Espeon

How do you do? Pleased to meet you. I'm Erindor.
Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Aw... Nobody likes teh Erindor.

Or at least his RP character form.

Umbreon: Yes. Ho-oh, yes. Raquaza, Groudon, Celebi, Absol, are pretty good too.

They're quite different, original is blue and blue-grey, while shiny is white and light blue.

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

I like the shades of blue on Nidoran♂ and Ditto:

They just look nice this way.
Scyther also looks good, because he has sharper versions of his original colors, which actually make him stand out quite a bit.

I seriously dislike the bright green, light green, or neon green shinies, which is a hecka lot of them. Seriously, why are there so many lightish green shinies, why not a less headache inducing color, or a bunch of different colors instead of so much repetitivness.

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

My favourite shinies are Rayquaza and Giratina, they just look awesome.

My least favourite is Infernape, it just hurts my eyes...

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

My favorites are definitely Metagross, Gallade, and Absol.
Silver and gold is always an awesome combination, especially on a Metagross.
Gallade looks awesome as it is, and just making him blue makes it even better.
Absol looks awesome with a reddish-pink tint, and the teal eyes are an awesome touch.

The word 'Nerd' is a compliment.
Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Favorite: Absol, Metagross, Charizard, Magikarp, Umbreon, and some that I can't remember.

Re: Best and worst-looking Shiny Pokémon?

Buizel and Floatzel looks alot like gold and silver and I just like that. Starmie looks very pretty with a pink orb and Regice looks pretty, too with it`s neon blue color. I also like Porygon-z.

The worst: Shinx Luxio and Luxray are the worst ones ever! They are very ugly. I also hate Lucario and Girantina.
