Regular, it's more vibrant and thus more fitting than their shiny sprite.

How about Zigzagoon?

The shiny is really pretty, but I love the rugged cuteness of normal Zigzagoon

HG/SS Venomoth?

I like both, but normal Venamoth looks more like a moth to me.

Ledian?

I'm more of a fan of the regular colouring for Salazzle

The lighting on normal Houndoom’s sprite is fantastic, but I prefer the shiny because it fits the Fire/Dark typing more.

Shelgon, it's green tint is subtle but really awesome and sums up what I feel a shiny should be.

Happiny?

Not a huge difference, but I think the shiny's a bit cuter.

How about Ch'Ding? AKA Farfetch'd.

I think I like regular Pangoro a lot more. The colour is a bit cooler.

How about Azurill (Emerald)

Normal Azurill. The green is just kinda weird on it.

How about Illumise?

Shiny Goomy reminds me of a strawberry & banana smoothie, so I'll go with the shiny.

Can't believe I am going to say this, but normal. The pink just does not work for me.

In honor of my newest shiny: Malamar?

I'd say normal. Shiny doesn't really do it for me.

How about Slugma?
