    I recently discovered this site and i like it already, please dont judge me by my noobness, i have spent many a year playing the pokemon games and know what im on about. that being said i would like to ask, why do people still insist on making 'shiny'pokemon teams? all of you out there familliar with ev's and iv's should know a shiny pokemon is made when its 'total' iv's come to be less than 9... i saw two shiny teams at the last tournament i entered and surprise, they lost horifficly. why do they think they get credability for using natures defects in battle?

    Um.

    Where have you been the last 8 years or so? Shiny Pokemon can have any combination of IVs since Ruby/Sapphire. Also you posted in the wrong place, and horribly butchered the English language to boot. (Well okay no not really, only just a little)

    Welcome to Smogon! This kind of thing, if it were actually true, would go in Stark Mountain. Keep an eye out for next time.

    I believe that shininess stopped being affected by IVs back in generation 3...

    Shiny Pokemon are only credited for the alternate colorings now. On Shoddy Battle in particular, it does not affect anything whether or not a Pokemon is chosen to be shiny or not.

    Hey welcome to Smogon! However, Congregation of the Masses is where we discuss things non-Pokemon related. Stark Mountain is what you're looking for, more specifically this thread here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56879

    Take a look around. If you need a Pokemon related question answered, there's where you should ask it.

    I actually had a pretty good team at that tournament you were at. It looked something like this:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    *it was 4v4 doubles as you can see*

    As you can see, my team actually features TWO (not one) shiny pokemon, meaning they must have birth defects. Those bastards didn't see my Garchomp coming! What the fuck does that have to do with anything, you say? Just because a pokemon is different does not make it a piece of shit.

    anyone care to rmt? I believe my Garchomp may be suffering from self-confidence issues so I'd like some help with that.
