It shouldn't change. Making them any more common would make them not as special. Making them any more rare would make older ones not as special as newer ones.

I have never even found one:(

If the chances increase, then it won't be as special when you do.


I hate the special snowflake argument.

1/1000 still isn't that common. I don't see anything wrong with running into a couple on an average playthrough.

i'd rather "shiny" pokemon be removed, and instead have multiple color schemes for all pokemon with near-equal chances of being encountered.

I hate gravity. That's not going to stop it.

There isn't anything wrong with it inherently, but there is something wrong with the notion that some folks who want to experience the special find of a shiny actually want to make that find less special.

The people who are saying "leave it be" have probably seen multiple shinies. I say 1/1000. I have put over 500 hours into every game except Gold and Ruby and I have NEVER seen a shiny. I also used to play competitively and hatched thousands upon thousands of eggs with 0 shinies.

My Shinies...
Gyarados from Lake Of Rage in Hg/Ss
Linoone from EBGames in Sapphire
Dialga from GameStop in Gen V
Palkia from GameStop in Gen V

That's it. ;_;


***Enters Battle***
**A Shiny Nincada Appears!**
*Catches Shiny Nincada*


***Enters Next Battle***
**A Shiny Nincada Appears!**
*Catches Shiny Nincada*

I was so happy. Now I own all 3! Shiny Nincada, Shiny Ninjask, and Shiny Shedinja. It makes for some really bright and shiny triple battles.

:D

Where is the Other option?

I like 1/2056 - 1/4112

I want to see one, but I don't want them to be plastered all over the walls.

This sounds good.

1/5000. I'm sure I haven't played any of the previous games as hardcore as the rest of you have but I've only encountered one shiny and I'm perfectly fine with that. If I really wanted more shinies there are many ways of increasing your odds
#28Rydis-ShikoPosted 9/23/2013 11:47:14 AM
More common. There are 700+ pokemon..even 1/1000 odds are isn't exact not looking for and still very rare to catch many.

Cheapen you say. Not realty 1/1000 is still very rare..and its the astounding odds that currently lead people to hack or dupe their shinies to get instead.

If good things come to those who wait - arn't they just the leftovers of those who got there first?
There is not good or bad, just perspective and opinion.

Doesn't matter how rare it still is. If it's less rare, then yes, it has been cheapened. It's not an opinion. It is a mathematical fact.
