What if there were multiple shiny varieties?

It could be cool, since it would make every shiny even more unique. Aside from the normal calculations when making a Pokémon shiny, there could be a hidden "Hue" value that made each one have its unique set of colors, instead of just a single and set alternative sprite. If the probability of getting a shiny increased a bit, it could add to the variety in what we see, while keeping each one's unique value (as in having a 1/4096 instead of 1/8192 chance, but making it so that there are like 255 possibilities for hue, thus increasing the number of shiny Pokémon around, yet making each one even more unique).

it would be a waste of resources, since most people in the world are not as lucky as me..

What if you had caught 10 shiny Audinos, and each was different?

It'd only be a good idea if the chance of finding a shiny were increased too.
There'd be practically no way to get one you'd like if it remains the same.
That being said, I'd like it if there were more "rare" occurences that affect how they look, even like finding a wild notch eared pichu type deal.

Would be cool since some shiny Pokemon look ugly as sin.

KogaSteelfang I did mention an encounter rate increase. Yeah, other details would be cool, but harder to program. While a hue value doesn't need entirely new sprites (just on-the-fly modifications), notched-ear Pichu type things would need more alternative sprites, which I don't see them doing

Reading fail on my part.
Sorry about that.
