So have shinies basically lost all their value?

I remember back before we had pokebank, shinies actually had real value because hacked versions of mons hand't yet infiltrated X or Y.

Post pokebank, are shinies basically worthless again like they used to be?
Hm, what? Hold on, I'm saving.

It's not even Pokebank that is the issue now, it's Powersaves.

Also, inb4shinieshavevalue?

Shiny KB pokemon would be worth something if it weren't for powersaves.

Value is in the eye of the beholder. I have a few shinies caught in game that are worth something to me. People play how they want to play.
Baseball, hunting, fishing, call of duty. Just add it to the list.

Yes they've lost their value, but because of powersaves not bank.

I personally don't care if a poke is shiny or not, anymore. I prefer to breed them myself, and have my own OT anyway.

Pokemon have value insofar as they can be traded with other people. Shiny, pokemon have more value than non-shiny pokemon if both are otherwise equal. Except for the rampant cloning and powersaving making this not true.

I've lost all the ****s I give about other people's Shinies. It's an aesthetic change, it never should've had extra value because it doesn't help you in battle.

Damn I go dark on the game for a while and some new hack method is invented to get around legit pokemon as usual.

It's pretty sad, the 3ds doesn't even need to be hacked for this stuff to exist, gamefreak really dropped the ball.

How does powersave work? I was hoping things would die down somewhat once the GTS for black and white stopped working.

Pretty much. 6th Gen shinies would have been worth something until powersaves.

Shinies seem to have as much value as you want them to have, they're no different than normal Pokemon.
