In this game, someone picks a Pokémon, and the next poster says whether they like the non-shiny or shiny version of that Pokémon, and poses the same question for the next poster.

Here's the first one.
How about Skarmory?

I'll decide for non-shiny Skarmory. I prefer brilliant silver than opaque gold.

So, how about Dragonite?

I'll pick normal Dragonite. It's normal colors work better than its shiny ones do.

How about Rayquaza?

I really like the shade of green on shiny Larvitar.

Fomantis?

I don't like the weird yellow skin of it's shiny. I prefer the non-shiny.

How about Alolan Golem?

Man, Alolan Golem looks weird in general. But the brown of the shiny suits it more.

How about Flaffy?

I'd go with the normal look, the green/purple of the shiny is kinda weird.

How about Excadrill?

Regular. I don't like the clash of the red and the blue.

Alolan Persian?

Hm, both look pretty decent. The blue seems a little nicer on the eyes.

Pyukumuku?

Honestly, I like them both equally. If I absolutely had to pick one, I'd go with the Shiny, I think.
