My Top 10 Least Favorite Shinies from Galar:
These shinies range from the disappointing, boring and just plain ugly. Since Galar is pretty new, I’m gonna start with this region then I’ll go to Alola next.
Number 10: Hatterene
Don’t get me wrong, Hatterene is a cute and pretty Pokémon, but I think GameFreak could’ve done better with its shiny. All the did was get rid of the blue and cranked the saturation of the pink some more, and then BAM! a shiny Pokémon. However, when Hatterene G-Maxes, it makes the shiny look good compared to its normal form. I won’t mind if someone gave this to me in a surprise trade because I like pink and I like Hatterene.
Number 9: Corviknight
I was hoping that Corviknight’s shiny would be white or a silver-y grey, but instead, we got this grayish brown color on its armor. It’s not super ugly, but it’s still disappointing. It looks better when it G-Maxes though.
Number 8: Centiskorch
Again, when it G-Maxes, it looks okay, but in its normal form, no. I never liked shinies where the Pokémon was a puke green color, but at least with Centiskorch, it’s not all over the place this time around.
Number 7: Alcremie
Another Pokémon whose shiny looks better when G-Maxed, Alcremie is also another disappointing shiny. I never expected Alcremie to become grey, of all colors. You can manage to make it look good with the ribbon sweet if you’re lucky enough to get that and a shiny Milcery.
Number 6: Galarian Farfetched
Basically, all GameFreak did was lighten Farcetched up just a little and that’s its shiny. Which is kinda lazy, but it’s not as bad as…
Number 5: Sirfetched
Oh my goodness, so, on top of making Galarian Farfetched’s shiny boring, they made Sirfetched’s shiny look awful. I know that some species of ducks are yellow, but they didn’t even bother changing the color of the sword and shield. The green makes the yellow stand out a lot.
Number 4: Grimmsnarl
Even if you G-Max this shiny form of Grimmsnarl, it still looks bad. This color palette looks awful. It doesn’t fit Grimmsnarl’s appearance at all.
Number 3: Galarian Weezing
Here’s a missed opportunity to make Galarian WEEZING the same color as Kantonian Weezing. Instead, we got a brown Galarian Weezing. It’s also made super funky with the fact that they didn’t even change the color of Galar Weezing’s beard.
Number 2: Inteleon
Good god, what is this color palette? I would’ve been okay with Intelleon being green since it’s a lizard. But, pink, cyan and white?! You can’t make an okay looking Pokémon and give it an ugly shiny color palette.
Number 1: Cinderace
This… this is just a bad shiny to look at. Yes, there are grey rabbits, but this is a grey rabbit that I don’t want to get. Inteleon and Cinderace have the worst shinies while Rillaboom has a good shiny.
