On the other hand I can’t wait for them to add shinies to Pokemon GO. As a shiny hunter and breeder I’d love to have a slim chance of finding something fancy on my adventures.
But on the other hand I’m terrified of how having shinies available would influence the already manifesting hacking community of the game. IVs are confirmed for the game already, as well as connectivity to Sun and Moon, so I’m very concerned what adding shinies could cause.
Niantic announced they want Pokemon GO to be the “Pokemon MMO”. In that light I hope hackers in GO will be treated with the same viciousness as other MMO cheaters: instant ban on all of the user’s accounts.
Guys I finally caught my first shiny Pokemon in Y; it was a Shellder! Pretty neat considering I was looking for one anyway ^^
I’ve evolved it into a Cloyster since it’s one of my favorite water Pokemon!
Before ORAS came out, I spent an absurd amount of time in Pokemon X breeding a shiny team to transfer into the new game. Now, tons of adventures later, they’re all grown up and champions of Hoenn.
Also, I love playing with Pokemon scale. Cause seriously, if a Pokemon is going to learn Fly and carry me all over the world, it had better darn well be big enough for me to realistically ride on its back.
