    I could honestly care less if I get a shiny or not, and I hate how people judge you by how much shinies you have collected, and ignoring the other factors of the game that require actual skill. Shiny-hunting is just a waste of time in my opinion, as it requires zero skill and it’s only luck-based.

    Eh... it depends on the kind of person that you are and what kind of actual value you place in getting shiny Pokémon. I agree that some people kinda overblow the value of them, and some others don't really care. Personally I like to have a collection of shinies of just the Pokémon that I really like. =P

    I’m alright with people collecting them, but I don’t like it when people think your entire life depends on them.

    yeah that's pushing it a bit too far but I don't know of anyone that's like that from the best of my recollation.

    Shiny hunting is just gambling tbh. It's addicting.

    It is! That's a lot of the reason why I enjoyed SOS Chaining so much.

    Shiny breeding? Not so much; it just gets really boring because it's seems more repetitive. u.u

    It really depends on what you want, either a good IV shiny or just going for the shiny itself, but I've had successful run for both methods.

    good IV shinies matter to me a lot which is why I like shiny breeding!

    although like i said before it's just really boring and mind-numbing sometimes hatching a gazillion eggs just to get that particular shiny.

    I only do it if I'm bored and on the road with my family, cause it is usually filled with silence or music from + - mother's   our favorite radio station

    I used to grind for shinies but the sm/usum games i just game it up. I'm hoping to start back up with the gen 8 games.

    I won't be able to play gen 8 games, assuming they're on the Switch. I might watch let's plays so I can enjoy the storyline though.

    From the way things are looking for me, I won't be getting the Switch for a while, much less any other games, I know that some time in the future I would probably get it so I will avoid trying to get spoilers if I can

    Good luck, spoilers seem to follow me wherever I go lol. If I want to avoid them I have to avoid all the online sites I like visiting x_x

    I guess that it isn't a bad thing, I only get on LV and discord for my online chatting stuff and then there is of course Youtube...that's pretty much it for my online doings

    If you wanna play a game but you don't get it the day it comes out, don't go on Youtube. People love to put all sorts of spoilery miniatures on their videos :furious:

    To avoid spoilers you pretty much have the stop being on YouTube a week before a release since the games tends to get leaked and ends up everywhere on that site.

    I'm so-so about spoilers myself, really depends on what it is since some things I don't mind getting spoiled while others not so much.
