I have this problem with Twitch streamers. It's not that I'm jealous in the slightest as I have a huge collection of shinies myself and have most of the ones I want.
However, I don't understand why people are so quick to give up their rare/legitimate shinies just because they're big fans. To make matters worse, I don't get why twitch streamers spend hours doing a horrid job trying to get shinies claiming they're 'shiny hunting' then they resort to getting 20 traded to them at the very end.

It's either for 5 minutes of fame on a video or because they genuinely respect the person and want a pokemon with the trainer id as a sort of autograph --- Pokemon Y Name: Hashirama (Save got corrupted D: ) 3DS Friend Code-5413 1230 1118 (Reaps)
The benefits of fame: free handouts. Each famous person gets 100 stamps, and those stamps can be traded out at will for pretty much anything they require. Stamps recharge at a rate of one per hour and will stop recharging if the famous person does not communicate with their fans for five weeks.
I couldn't believe it when I saw it. I watched a stream once where they simply gave theories about Hoopa and Diancie, etc. At the end, they traded with fans and were literally saying on the stream, "Get their Zygarde! Ask for his Zygarde and give him a s*** Pokemon!" And of course the fan traded their Zygarde for a Bunnelby or whatever.
Why I ask? I mean, they even said out loud that they were giving the fan crap, and made fun of him for it, and he still traded! MAYBE I'd understand if you traded with a real-life celebrity. Maybe.

Shofu used to do it but not as much now. Giancarloparimango11 does it though.
Because they're fanboys. Will do anything they say and eat up the lies. Gian even said on a skype call that he knows his fans are annoying but sees them as dollar signs. --- Find me at: http://www.youtube.com/user/AdventOfTherian/about My Pokemon X/Y chronicles@Photobucket PSS: TR Pokedex (X) 408 / 721 - 57% (Y) 0 / 721 0%
