We all love when a shiny version of our favorite Pokemon shows up, right? It is a welcome surprise to any video or card game! Except, those shinies are not as great as we all think. Don't get me wrong, they LOOK amazing but they are lacking one very important thing in the Pokemon universe. That thing, Theorists, is POWER! Shines are WEAK! Not only that, but they are DOOMED! Why? You will have to watch to find out!

    Shiny hunters: WHY ARE ALL MY GUYS DEAD?

    One time when I was at a strip club one of the dancers had a ball python with her that had a good amount of it’s body covered in white scales. Much more strangely though was that the snake was showing no signs of stress or discomfort from the bright flashing lights or the loud music. It was behaving exactly the same way I saw other ball pythons behave when their relaxing in their enclosure when I worked at Petco years ago.

    As someone in the reptile community the rare ball python thing is 100% true. They are line bread in captivity and aren't that hard to find captive breed, so they must not be expensive right? Nope! People will spend thousands for pi-balds.

    Yeah, and humans purposely breed albino snakes for profit. Its the same with dogs and cats with scrunched up faces and munchkin cats. Short legs in a cat is a genetic disorder but it was considered "cute" so they continued doing it

    I have insanely good luck in finding shiny Pokémon, to the point the first Pokémon I saw & caught in PokemonX was a shiny Zigzagoon I SADLY killed multiple shiny Druddigon in Pokémon Ruby....before I knew shiny Pokémon were an actual thing......I don’t deserve my shiny luck😭 I found a shiny Karrablast just trying to show my brother where to catch it I went through a flower patch & said “please don’t let me catch a shiny fairy Pokémon here, please” & found a shiny Flabebe... I caught 2 shiny Pokémon in a month timeframe on PokémonGo--Psyduck & Wooper & this is barely scratching the surface on the shinies I’ve caught I was legit making my way through a shiny Pokédex before the games’ data corrupted & the game became a plastic paper weight

    6:40 Thats not entire true in pokemon is a correct statement for every pokemom game except the origional gold silver and crystal. In gold silver and crystal pokemon who pass on the full IV stat to their offspring have a higher chance of producing a shiny if that offspring ends up with all 5 stats at full iv. So if both parents have a majority of there stats at full IV (when caught) they are much more likely to produce a shiny. Keep in mind the idea of IV in the gen 1 and 2 games was just the initial starting point of a system called DV but essentially did what IV do in gen 3 and up. Only using the term IV for simplicity sake.

    I’m just gonna point this out here, ‘albinoism’ in reptiles, especially snakes isn’t the same as albinoism in mammals, in reality all those albino snakes you see are actually amelistic (they are missing certain pigments not all of them) as such show similar levels of sun/heat of their normal counterparts. They are very different genes at play here and I really don’t think you researched this well Ever wondered why albino burmese pythons are yellow and not pinkish? Well that’s why
