I'm picturing the TC as a guy who looks just like Denzel Crocker, with pictures of every shiny Pokemon all over his house, complete with a homemade "Shiny Seeker," accusing people with a little more luck than him "shiny owners" or "cheaters".
I caught a Shiny Chimecho in Black last Friday. First shiny ever, legit, and I barely care. Whoopee, it jingles when it comes out of a pokeball. Looking for shinies is like looking for a needle in a really large hay bale. You'll never find it, but as soon as you stop worrying and try to back out, it sticks you in the neck.
