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!

  • 6:40 Thats not entire true in pokemon is a correct statement for every pokemom game except the origional gold silver and crystal. In gold silver and crystal pokemon who pass on the full IV stat to their offspring have a higher chance of producing a shiny if that offspring ends up with all 5 stats at full iv. So if both parents have a majority of there stats at full IV (when caught) they are much more likely to produce a shiny. Keep in mind the idea of IV in the gen 1 and 2 games was just the initial starting point of a system called DV but essentially did what IV do in gen 3 and up. Only using the term IV for simplicity sake.

  • I’m just gonna point this out here, ‘albinoism’ in reptiles, especially snakes isn’t the same as albinoism in mammals, in reality all those albino snakes you see are actually amelistic (they are missing certain pigments not all of them) as such show similar levels of sun/heat of their normal counterparts. They are very different genes at play here and I really don’t think you researched this well Ever wondered why albino burmese pythons are yellow and not pinkish? Well that’s why

  • You know, in general, pokemon are pretty significantly smarter than normal pleb reality animals. They can seemingly fully understand language, even if they cant speak it, most of them seem to know humans aren't actively a threat, etc. So Gamefreak, clearly you need to make shiny pokemon have significantly higher catch rates than their non-shiny counterparts. They're intelligent enough to understand that being willingly captured by a trainer who only has 3 regular pokeballs is a way better option than being burnt to death by the sun or immediately hunted down by the next predator that looks in their direction. Of course, we'd also clearly need to increase the overall encounter rate too, since any pokemon born in the wild with any concept of trainers would try to actively seek out people to save them from such a horrible life.

  • I heard ball python and me being one who loves reptiles and owns a ball python I was happy. Although piebald is a recessive gene in ball pythons and actually most sought out is the spider gene not the pied but there are albino which in sense would fall under albinism. Then there's scaleless and so many other things as far as I'm aware spider gene is the worse morph possible. If you don't know about the spider gene look it up
