Adjustments to shiny Pokemon

#1Thunder_ArmorPosted 5/13/2013 8:45:56 PM
All the time, people say that as kids they KO'd or ran away from a shiny because they didn't know it was special or they were afraid it was a glitch. To prevent that from happening anymore, I think that there should be a message that pops up when you encounter a shiny like "Oh! There's something different about this Pokemon!" or "This Pokemon has a strange color!" That way, people who don't know about shinies will know that it's something special and they should catch it instead of KOing it or running away. It'd be a small change but I always thought it was something they should do.

Also, I think a different battle theme should play if you encounter a wild shiny. That would also help with fixing the above problem. It would be a variation of the normal battle theme. Something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKxNwiEARZQ

And if you fight a wild legendary that's shiny, well, I don't know. Something super cool would play I guess.

Yeah but the sparkles aren't obvious enough. When I saw my first shiny and saw the sparkles it didn't help explain anything. I was really confused and I was afraid if I caught it my game would glitch up. Maybe I was just really stupid.

No, I understand what you're saying
They could just say "A wild shiny _____ appeared" or "Trainer _____ sent out a shiny ____," and the presence of the word "shiny" might calm some people

If people knock out shiny Pokemon, that's their own fault.. We're old enough to know the difference now...

And also, since AR's are still around.. Shiny Pokemon have lost their rareness...

I like the battle music idea. It would be a neat addition.

Numerous ingame methods to increase shiny rate is the main cause.
