a team full of shinies doesn't make you good

and all it does is make the battle drag longer with the shiny animation. -.-

Because 2 seconds of shine really drags a battle out?

Besides--COLORS. (I still wish I had kept at it til I got a shiny Lilligant. oh well~)

This was actually a legit strategy somebody used at a VGC to run down the timer because there is only 15 minutes per round.

I thought the timer only counted down while you were selecting your moves.
