    Gengar. It's just... A dark blue not that far off from its original purple. At least Gastly looked cool with its light blue.

    I can't call it disappointing, but that my first shiny had to be a Foongus... That's not as great as I would've liked.

    I found the shiny Swablu and Altaria to be really disappointing in the transition to 3D models. They're no longer a beautiful golden color but instead this weird mustard yellow..

    I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I really did prefer the old one (still love my shiny Swablu though)! On another note of disappointing, I was hunting for a shiny Trevenant but instead found shiny Foongus so that was upsetting since Foongus is one of the more boring Pokémon. ; 3;

    A Plusle... I had been breeding Mawile for a really long time, hoping for a shiny, but no luck. Immediately after I take a break, I run into a shiny Plusle -_- And it doesn't even look different either, just a slightly different shade...

    Garchomp.

    It's such an awesome Pokémon, too. It's a slight shade darker x.x

    Jolteon and pretty much any other shiny that's effing yellow or green. Why make so many of them Nintendo?

    I would say both Horsea and Charmeleon since their alternate color palettes aren't the greatest, but shiny Charizard and Kingdra are amazing, so I dunno if I can really count them XD

    As for Pokémon I didn't find in the wild, I'm disappointed in how Pyroar's shiny color palette isn't a darker brown, so people could call male ones "Scar" /shot

    I think it would be a shiny Cascoon that I found in a Friend Safari. It wasn't disappointing but I would've rather had something else.

    After seeing how awesome a shiny Fennekin is, I was rather disappointed in Delphox's. I like it, but I was hoping for something less... Pale.

    VOLBEAT. Enough said. Shiny Volbeat has killed any tiny shred of like that I ever had for that Pokémon.

    Beartic. There's like no color difference besides the paws.

    The only thing that is "shiny" about a shiny foongus is the top of it's head. I couldn't even see it until it sparkled. Immediately after catching mine (I called her Ms. Purple), I put it up on the gts in exchange for a non-shiny malamar. Surprisingly somebody did take her.
