We all love when a shiny version of our favorite Pokemon shows up, right? It is a welcome surprise to any video or card game! Except, those shinies are not as great as we all think. Don't get me wrong, they LOOK amazing but they are lacking one very important thing in the Pokemon universe. That thing, Theorists, is POWER! Shines are WEAK! Not only that, but they are DOOMED! Why? You will have to watch to find out!

  • And also, think about the Pokémon timeline! In Pokémon go, canonically the first game in the series, only some have shinies, and they have a 1 in 500 chance. By gen 2 though, mutations have modified the shinyless ones to 1/8192, and the 1 in 500 value cut them down to 8192 as well. By the later gens where they are more around 1 in 4096, this is likely the result of rebreeding and attempting to get back to the 1 in 500 rate of years past!
