Gender: Fluid
Country: Somewhere far away
Favorite Pokémon: See "about me"
Friend Codes: Showdown name: BlazeLostHisName

Friends:

Hoenndragon: Great friend of mine. He resented me at the beginning it seems.

Frozen Inferno: Great at bullying me (joking). He is friendly, but he argues with everyone in the formal forms (and I will always lose that argument), even if they are his friends. Still a kind man.

ProfDellDell: Inactive nowadays. He introduced me to PS. He is the reason why I have some knowledge about competitive.

Megaltaria: Another great friend of mine. We chatted a lot in the initial days, but her parents found out that she was in this site, and they were against of it. I'm feeling so sad.

Some other users who are good and kind to me:

Omega Blade X
Fizz
Sumwun (and not sumwun)
PrimodiaISea
Kyogre71
DrowsyDrakloak
Bandit
Many more.....
About me: "Never argue with sumwun unless you want to get screwed up." :P
- my personal experience

I don't know why there is a craze for getting a shiny, as there is no difference in stats for a normal and a shiny. Also, normal is also still good, and getting a shiny is very tough. Craze for getting a legendary... that I understand.

Can anyone make me understand why there is a craze for shiny?
I'm sorry if I hurt you.

Primal says: It looks cool, it has cool sparkles in its body...

ah, I am one of those who don't look at appearances. Beginners make mistakes lol.

Gekky says : Its exactly because shinies are hard to get that makes them special. Everyone gets a legendary by the end of the game or by knowing a code, but with shinies we have to work hard or be very very lucky...

 A true point.

Bandit says : HOW HAVE I GOTTEN POKERUS TWICE AND HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED A SHINY OUTSIDE OF A WORMHOLE FRICK SHINIES!!!

lol it has more importance than Pokérus according to her! I got neither lol!

Barbara Bingbong says : People like shinies because they'd rather Smeargle could paint Red than Green...

Okay...

Manectric Madness says: Shiny Pokemon are rare. Not like the Pokemon that have a 1% chance to encounter. Rarer than that. People may have struggles when hunting, from Double Team spam to Pokemon that have a low encounter chance, when you get a shiny Pokemon, it will be worth the effort of hunting for the shiny....

Yeah I agree. It is so tough to get. If you get it, you would be extremely happy, like me getting a Shiny Hariyama!

Shadow says: I shiny hunt for the feeling of accomplishment when you finally get the rare shiny that took forever to get. In Diamond, I got my shiny Drifloon in about 3 days, but Dialga is still taking months to get.

Really how unpredictable shinies are!

Professor says: Shiny Pokemons, like everyone says, their extremely rare. When you finally see one, it makes you feel like you have insane luck. Shiny Pokemons in competitive battling is even rarer. You need the correct nature(using mints :P), the correct IVs(using Bottle Caps), take some time to EV train it and make sure it has the ability you want(with Ability Capsules and Ability Patches). It takes lots of work to prepare a shiny Pokemon to go in competitive battling. Kind of to show off, well, everyone should be impressed about shiny Pokemons and how long these players have been trying to get them. How much effort they spend.....

This one I feel is like a Speech by a real professor! Really inspires Young Minds like us!

Gladion (idk what to call her) says: Well, they're hard to get and getting one is usually a challenge. Hours of Shiny hunting and you get a Pichu that barely looks any different. But you feel a sense of happiness and accomplishment, as you didn't give up and now you have a Pokemon to represent your hard work.

True, it is a really sweet fruit of our Hardwork.

Drakloak says: Shiny Pokémon look cool and if your going to grind a pokemon for 100 hours might as well look nice and not burn your eyes for every 100 hour you look at it.

lol!

Ok I'm kidding but still most of the time people like how it look and is to also show your commitment to getting one with good ivs, evs, egg moves, and everything, including finding one in the first place.

Yes, True!

Hoenndragon says: I was once grinding in soul silver and came back to heal. Nurse Joy informed me my Pokémon (all six) have Pokerus. (Long ago ^)
And I only caught 2 shinies you know? Here:
Shiny gyarados in Soul silver and shiny haxorus in Black 2. Yep no shiny ever. No shiny that can be not shiny.

Shiny Gyarados is unfair. To be frank everyone who play Johto games can catch Shiny Gyarados, as it is situated at the lake of rage. Idk abt Haxorus though.

IsItReallyThou says: "Shinies are amazing to see and the reactions are priceless. Except for the fails."

To be frank, the reaction after failure is also priceless (it is exasperation :P).

Herba says: When you find a shiny, it just makes you feel really good. The Shiny Pokemon is very special, you either feel like your arduous task of finding this shiny is finally over, or that your luck is really good. Lots of shinies look cool and most (in my opinion) look better than the original. The little sparkle when you find a shiny/send one out is also pretty cool.

Yep, after catching two shinies, I really feel they are cool.

I need more people to answer!
