      My shiny Metagross will not simply die

    2. Skarlet

      So it's not that *our* shinies our doomed to die. It's that wild shinies are doomed to die. And by catching them we are actually saving them from their inevitable death

    10. Clone

      I think every Pokémon is doomed to die at some point man

    11. the knee thief

      This made me think of one of the most common examples I've encountered: betta splendens. My most brilliantly coloured boy was a deep red base scaling with an icy blue shimmer across his body. The splendens complex is incredibly inbred for the sake of colouration, fin type, and aggressive behaviour, but "wild type" bettas are more darker in colour, typically have shorter and easier to swim with fins, and have a tendency to be less aggressive, meaning that splendens would be hard pressed to survive in their natural environment.

    24. DarkIsDark

      “THEY ARE RARE” so a poketuber by the name MANDJTV (the most handsome poketuber) Who got 3 shinies in a normal platinum run for an April fools joke, they got 1 shiny zubat and 2 shiny r, one exploding but catching the other shinies. The ods were the high 8192 (i think thats the odds for Plat and stuff) and they barely had 6 gym badges. The game wanted the playthrough to have some spice as it’s just a normal playthrough as an april fools joke. This is actually hilarious

    96. Jonathan Harshman

      It was funny cause I was mentioning that while playing pokemon go one time. I was catching shiny's but they where relatively weak to the normal colored pokemon, same with my friends. And I said to my group, "Hey guys what if being a shiny is a birth defect in the pokemon world." My friends kind of gave me that sad groan and kinda agreed with it. But I did get the, "man you're really over thinking this." If only they knew. lol

    97. Applebox Gaming

      I didn’t know blue lobsters were that rare. I remember I was swimming on a town beach when I was a child and I reach down and picked up what I thought was a rock…not a rock. But it became a flying type that day

        @DarkFrozenDepths Thank you, as this also aligns with my comment in that it only becomes MORE rare when it becomes a flying type.

      4. DarkFrozenDepths

        look up some stuff on the rarest animals in the world.... you'd be surprised. Some variants are so rare that it's 1 in hundreds of millions...
