Shiny Values have destroyed shiny trading

So now instead of a people trading Shiny for Shiny, they're all going to be trading near perfect Shiny.....

This is dismal.

welcome to a day after a shiny value exploit :D
I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

Well this is basically what would had happened once the pokebank opens.

Its just bringing the value down earlier.

Pretty soon they'll be so common place they won't be worth anything.

I traded away my none-competitive shiny Zubat at the right time then about 2 weeks ago!

Pokemon aren't worth anything. No useful value can be derived from those few bytes of data

I'm still glad that I get online battles without fear of hacked Pokemon.

When that day comes, I'll probably just have to stick to battling friends.

I think yours is the first topic about this...


So what? It's TF2 Unusuals all over again.
A purely cosmetic change only has as much value as the people interested give it.

Do you like your Shinies? They're valuable.
Do you not? Ditch 'em for something. I'm sure there'll still be people who want it.
Not changing this sig until I have at least one Shiny version of each Eeveelution.
1/9 done.

I thought that shinies wouldn't be devalued until December.
Can't think of anything
