We all love when a shiny version of our favorite Pokemon shows up, right? It is a welcome surprise to any video or card game! Except, those shinies are not as great as we all think. Don't get me wrong, they LOOK amazing but they are lacking one very important thing in the Pokemon universe. That thing, Theorists, is POWER! Shines are WEAK! Not only that, but they are DOOMED! Why? You will have to watch to find out!

  • So what you’re saying is that if we wanted the game to be more biologically accurate, the method to increase chances of shinies should have come from you taking two eggs from your daycare pair, breeding them with each other, rinse and repeat until a shiny was hatched.

    Michael LyleMichael LyleӨдрийн өмнө
  • Why don’t we elaborate a little here Matt: LEGITIMATE shinies are really rare. Thanks to the growing trend of Pokémon generated by third party softwares because the players don’t want to put in the actual time and effort for that shiny or that perfect IV competitive mon, the internet is full of shinies these days. No joke, I even get a MNthe ad for a service (can’t recall if it’s a website or an app) these days that generates pokemon and sends it to your game. So having a shiny isn’t even impressive anymore because even if you’re a Puritan who hunkered down and did the work to get yourself a shiny, the internet will always look at your accomplishment with the lingering doubt that you just cheated like everyone else. When everyone is shiny, no one is shiny anymore

  • One time when I was at a strip club one of the dancers had a ball python with her that had a good amount of it’s body covered in white scales. Much more strangely though was that the snake was showing no signs of stress or discomfort from the bright flashing lights or the loud music. It was behaving exactly the same way I saw other ball pythons behave when their relaxing in their enclosure when I worked at Petco years ago.

I caught 2 shiny Pokémon in a month timeframe on PokémonGo--Psyduck & Wooper & this is barely scratching the surface on the shinies I’ve caught I was legit making my way through a shiny Pokédex before the games’ data corrupted & the game became a plastic paper weight

  • 6:40 Thats not entire true in pokemon is a correct statement for every pokemom game except the origional gold silver and crystal. In gold silver and crystal pokemon who pass on the full IV stat to their offspring have a higher chance of producing a shiny if that offspring ends up with all 5 stats at full iv. So if both parents have a majority of there stats at full IV (when caught) they are much more likely to produce a shiny. Keep in mind the idea of IV in the gen 1 and 2 games was just the initial starting point of a system called DV but essentially did what IV do in gen 3 and up. Only using the term IV for simplicity sake.

  • I’m just gonna point this out here, ‘albinoism’ in reptiles, especially snakes isn’t the same as albinoism in mammals, in reality all those albino snakes you see are actually amelistic (they are missing certain pigments not all of them) as such show similar levels of sun/heat of their normal counterparts. They are very different genes at play here and I really don’t think you researched this well Ever wondered why albino burmese pythons are yellow and not pinkish? Well that’s why
