Man there is SUCH a big difference in the shiny and the normal pikachu

Love Pikachu but its just a darker yellow

The hint of yellow is just a tad different

Pikachu is sooo cute I love it pika pika.

2 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

That's an ugly shade of green.

I would make him purple.

Shiny dratini/dragonair was sweet. shiny dragonite was crap

I really like Dragonair and its shiny. Drangonite, it's an 'okay' Pokémon. But the shiny is TERRIBLE. Green and purple do NOT go well together, especially on Dragonite. GAME FREAK has had many chances to fix this, but they never did. Pikachu's shiny is really bad too, but I think shinies with a bad color palette is worse than shinies you can't notice. Although they might be equally bad, whatever you all choose.

4 Garchomp Garchomp

If it did not have shiny particles, you can't tell the difference unless you are the most observant person in the world

Am I a shiny or just got covered in a thin layer of dust this shiny sucks

Need I say anything

Terrible in every sense of the word with Garchomp's shiny. The only change is the blue becomes a grayish-blue and the red spot on its belly becomes orange! Only some of the most keen eyed shiny hunters can tell a normal one from a s shiny. What's more, the change is not pretty! There are some subtle shinies done well; regice, the togepie line is fine, both glacion and leafion, and even pikachu looks so much better than garchomp! They kind of improved with his shiny with his mega, which becomes magenta and purple, and while it doesn't make it look fearsome at all, dang it those colors look good on garchomp! If only his base shiny was as good as his mega. I applaud you if you can tell the difference from a regular to a shiny and it you hunt it, I suggest gibl e or gabite (unless you evolve your shinies, which I do.)

5 Espeon Espeon

How dare you puke on my favorite pokemon?!

I like this shiny, tied with umbreon;s

Well I love Espeon but it's Shiny looks terrible to me! (In my opinion)I rather an white Espeon,That would be pretty (Again,In my opinion). - cassiabez

It’s normally a mixed opinion. Personally, I don’t like it. I would make it white with light blue ears and gem.

6 Weavile Weavile

Pink and yellow? really?! poor weavile...

The Pokémon looks cool Norman but turning it pink really makes it look less of a savage killer

7 Lunatone Lunatone

Sorry I do hate this one, but guy who said game freaks made this boring, game freaks does not pick what the shiny pokemon look like, it's actually the games

Really a different color I

I must agree

8 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Can't tell difference between normal and shiny

9 Volbeat Volbeat

14 Groudon Groudon Groudon, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Looks like Cubchoo gave him a snotty hug

When I look at it, it reminds me of chips for some reason

15 Scizor Scizor

Okay, I love this Pokémon, but then, he/she's green! Scizor was sooo cool in normal and mega, I love the eyes, the color, everything about it. I'm like 'O my gosh I need to see this thing's shiny! ' Then I get disappointed. The thing again is... GREEN?! U could have made him/her blue, golden, or purple. Those colors would go sooo well with the gray! Looks too much like a scyther. Scyther's shiny is even better! Also shiny scizor, he/she is sooo ugly with again, green.

16 Scyther Scyther

When I look at this thing's shiny, it reminds me of apples for some reason 😂🤣😆

17 Munna

ugly - Dragoniterocks

18 Regigigas Regigigas

Regigigas is the worst legendary of all time. Maybe they will give him a break with a kick butt shiny right? But no they only changed the yellow bits to blue. And not even a nice shade of blue. I mean come on BLUEBERRY BLUE?! It looks horrible! I still love you regigigas, even with a horrible shiny.

One of my favorite Pokemon. Sadly purple doesn't look too good on him. - letdot52

31 Glaceon Glaceon

Wait wait wait wait wait, WAIT! What the heck is this is this even a SHINY?! Whoa whoa woah!

Oh oh oh. The only thing they did was turn his feet and tips of his "tufts" and tail from green to blue. Seriously. That's it. Well I guess his light blue is a little... lighter but his TUFTS don't CHANGE! AGAIN WITH THE HELIOPTILE AND HELIOLISK! THEY FORGOT TO COLOR A PART OF HIM! AGAIN!

Those colors are weird

Normal colors so cool

Oops it looks like somebody just barfed all over it

Why did this thing appear in the anime?!

Eughh it's hideous. It looks like a piece of vomit that a little kid drew. Shiny hawlucha is probably the worst shiny ever in my opinion. Seriously, the colours are just ugly. - Lunala

NO,Just make it boring,my gosh why. - Dragoniterocks

44 Vivillon Vivillon Vivillon, known in Japan as ビビヨン (viviyon) is a dual Bug-Flying type Pokémon in the Pokémon series. It is often criticized for being number 666 in the national Pokédex. This is pretty odd, as it resembles a butterfly.
45 Regice Regice Regice is a legendary Pokemon and part of the Regi trio. According to scientific research its body is made entirely of Antarctic ice during an ice age. It is said to always control frigid air of minus 328 degrees F. more.

It doesn't even look different! I got one through Wonder Trade and I couldn't even tell it was shiny! If it wasn't for the particles, I might have traded it away! It's like Pikachu, but even more similar! - Mooshroomsrock17

That should be a shiny?!?!? - Dragoniterocks

Mega form just looks like a black stripe. - Dragoniterocks

49 Vanillish

Game Freak could have done so much with this shiny. They could have changed the ice cream to chocolate, strawberry, mint choc chip... They could have even made the cone look more like an actual waffle cone. But nope, all they do is change the cone and eyes to purple. Random and lazy if you ask me.

50 Honchkrow Honchkrow

Honchkrow's Shiny is just insulting, why on earth would you turn an evil crow...PINK?! It could've been so cool! - ChiefMudkip
