    No idea why but some Pokémon look like shinies even if it's not even their actual shiny palette, like Rufflet-

    there were times that I thought a regular Charmander, Mudbray, and Snover were the shinies...but I was also tired when I thought such things...

    I caught a Machop once thinking it was a shiny because it looked greenish and I had no idea what shiny Machamp looked like.
    Thank god we have Pokémon Releasing now. He's not with me anymore. He's in the pits of hell where Regirock reigns

    I thought I found a shiny Froakie while the shiny boost was on, but it turns out it was just my blue light filter on my phone making the Froakie appear lighter than usual...

    I thought I found a shiny Rufflet a few days ago but that apparently wasn't the case. Still upset.

    It depends. If it doesn't look purple, then it's a shiny. If it's purple, it isn't a shiny.

    The sad part is that I know what it's shiny looks like but the yellow on it's feathers just throw me off. It's supposed to be brown where it's gray and it's feet are a lighter shade of yellow.

    Rufflet and Vullaby (don't ask me why) always make me think they're shinies. And I feel the pain of thinking Shuppet's a shiny, haha.

    I've thought more than once that Entei's usual color palette was shiny. There are some Pokémon whose colorings just look really weird in the dream world art and if I don't know what the shinies look like, I'll think it's shiny. Like Rhyhorn looks sort of bluish. Rhyhorn's shiny is brown though, which I learned after having to look it up after seeing a "blue" one.

    And actually I just looked it up and shiny Rhyhorn dream world art looks almost pinkish. Super weird.
