Shiny. Not mine. H Migits fil 29 2012' JOHN KLECKNER . com. The only shiny I have is a Magcargo. It seemed like a cruel joke at first as it seemed kinda useless at first. Turns out it can be a real tank if he wants to be fecal matter

in ruby/sapphire i always used to catch a magcargo if i didnt start with torchic. he was a proper tank up until level 60, when he became useless. but shinys have to have insane stats for them to be shiny, so he was probably a lot stronger than my, many many, non shiny ones.
he was just very good against gyms and passable against the elite four.

i have had other shinys though... i really need to get a life.

Being shiny doesn't change its stats at all.

actually it does. look up IV on bulbapedia.
they have to have high IV's to be shiny. and so they can therefore become much stronger than average if theyre shiny, still have to put the effort in though.

also females are apparently weaker.

Everywhere I've checked and almost everyone I ask agrees that shiny is only a cosmetic difference that has no effect on how it'll do in battle, the algorithm for working out if a Pokémon will be shiny is pretty complex.

I'll go check on /vp/ just to be sure.

I checked, granted I only skimmed it, but there was nothing about them being better.

Yeah, but the IV's aren't nececcarily that high, they can be low, and it's easily possible to get a non-shiny pokemon with those IV's.

its not that hard no. but theyre above average IV's for the majority of stats.
so youre very likely to have an above average pokemon.

Yeah, you are but you need to maintain that above average standard with help of EV's too, like yeah, it's a tiny bit more likely to be shiny if it has higher IV's but like I said, most pokemon aren't shiny so even if it has amazing IV's it's probably still not as good as some of it's non-shiny rivals.

yes thats very true. but breeding is nothing without training anyway.
yes you can breed a pokemon with perfect IV's and then EV train them till theyre a tank. but running through the game it is very likely that that shiny you found, no matter what it is, will be a very strong member of the team. ive even done this with a magnemite and its worked out.

Yeah, I guess that works for people that don't pick and squeeze every last stat point out of their team, which is almost everybody.

This is why I always keep a Pokemon that knows Hypnosis in the front of my party while walking around.
