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!

  • I wave a purple ponyta witch i evolved into a rapadash

  • great song!

  • Do you know you should have a a music theory

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my poor shiny garchomp that is 100% different than a regular garchomp

  • I got 18 shiny

  • this video reminded me how sad i am about HOW endangered white lions are. (Fortunately there are enough of them to be considered a separate species from regular lions.

  • Of you're playing a nuzlocke there's a chance theyre gonna die

  • mattpat AND tamatoa? my two favourite things!

  • No flex, but I have 203 shinies in Pokémon go and don’t like suggesting if I didn’t catch them, they died

  • “Clauncher is most likely inspired by the blue lobster” Pistol shrimps: bro what?

  • Funny story: when i was new to pokemon The CARDS i had a rainbow bird forgot what it was called but anyway i thought it was usless so i traded it for a mega 😂 then i realised my mistake but same thing happened to another person 2 months later but i traded my mega for that same card

  • i only have one shiny and its a ponyta in pokemon quest

  • could be Argyria from colodial silver cause that cures alot of stuff

  • Not my shiny Pidgeot 🥺

  • intro: cringe content: good

  • The most entertaining intro ever

  • That intro was truly bad.

  • Pokemon

  • My albino rabbit died because it was squished 😔


  • TODAY I LEARNED: Albino are human shinnies

  • I like regular pokemon.. there easy to get


  • My friend a shiny level 100 lucario in sheild

  • In real life het albino animal mated with a normal animal makes more hets then a het mated with another het makes the real thing and hets mated with the real thing make more of the real thing that is how you could get a albino from 2 normals

  • When you actually see the blue lobster : dang i forgot to buy pokeballs

  • I bread a Japanese a lopunny with a American one so now I have a shiny :3

  • Soo your saying i saw A SUPER RARE blue lobster? Dang

  • The explanation of the Masuda method is flawed because it working is based of region not language like he is saying

  • 6:23

  • That intro was hard to watch

  • Pikachu

  • Wait he said Elg instead of moose, Elg is the Norwegian word for mosse

  • Want to here a flex. No? Well I don’t care here is one I have five rare shiny blue humans 😎

  • I love brown pandas

  • The warlike octagon curiously phone because parcel apically protect afore a lyrical opinion. piquant, good brochure

  • Well of course, the magikarp's just level 3 after all, a few exp candies will fix that...

  • Maby I can’t find a shiny wooloo because it died?

  • Isn't the real life shinies just called albinos

  • 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.

  • No cap

  • Hey once I found a real life shiny, it was a pink and black bee instead of yellow and black

  • moana vibes

  • 0:59 Me: But i was born in 2011

  • Maybe that’s why shiny pokemon are so rare They have high mortality rate

  • Da Ba Dee

  • I'm blue

  • who else gonna go shiny hunt babies

  • 9:08 IM BLUE A-

  • I just got an ad from a medication app and the ad was a scary story...

  • I mean... I'd say most things are doomed to die

  • hello MATHEW PATRICK HAHAHA just a prank HAHAHA

  • no one: my shiny vaporeon: say sick right now

  • So my name jack

  • 2:50 shiny hunters: i like those odds

  • 9:35 now that explains how there's a smurf movies😏🙃

  • Missed opportunity to colab with schaffilace the intro would have been fun

  • That intro is very scary

  • The intro is cring

  • A game theory you have been copywriting from movie a Disney movie and that's think I think that's illegal

  • 8:15 - 8:23 Suddenly feels like a dating site

  • Why just why did you put in a moana remix

  • Mans really hit the booth and made that 😂😂😂

  • Rip my 4 iv shiny haxourus

  • I think that at 3:53 those are albino

  • If I meet a person that has blue skin, I would sing the blue song.

  • also black flamingo

  • wow thank for the flex .

  • I'm shiny hunting Eevee right now, it is taking forever 😔😔😔🙏🙏

  • da boo dee da boo die!!!!!!!

  • Pikachus are supposed to be orange, not red

  • You ruined my childhood since 2011 that was the year when I was born

  • I got a shiny eevee after 10 eggz

  • Can you do a theory on fnf? There is a lot of theory potential

  • 10:24 me any time I say blue lol

  • i like the song

  • Epic intro. Subscribed to see that everyday.


  • in pakistan blue and pink chicks are sold in village they always die

  • that intro is the only reason I was born

  • The first time I ever encountered a shiny was a shiny Ratata, in that SAME exact play session I caught a shiny diglett! I was hella excited and I still have them to this day!

  • 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

  • God that was weird at 6:22 😳

  • this guy has no clue about pokemon. shiny rates are known as are all info about the games. also, umbreon isnt catchable, breeding pikachus gives you a pikachu etc. bad video.

  • There's a desise that gives you blue skin you will not survive it trust me

  • tamatoa matpat isnt real he cant hurt you tomatoa matpat:

  • 6:03 Dam never though they want me so bad

  • 6:42 method

  • the 1 in 500 part is a bit off, the easiest odds (if you dont count the 1/1 gyarados and assorted other pokemon) it the odd egg in pokemon crystal, with it having around a 1/12 chance of having one of an assorted group of shiny baby pokemon in the U.S. (odds were higher in japan versions of crystal)

  • shinies like a melody like shinies

  • The way he says pokeballs 0:30

  • 🙁👎 fish 🙂👍seafood

  • If you need to know how rare Its rainbow rarity

  • Did an American just mention a British Store? Wait, that's illegal.

  • me who just caught a shiny *gulp*

  • *the* *sun* *is* *a* *deadly* *laser*

  • There is also a panda with grey and white fur since it's mother didn't have enough black ink

  • I have two shinies, but luckily they are both Ghost types

  • shiny hunrter but the other way around you keep getting shinys

  • 10:21
