What's this I keep reading about shiny pokemon?

A Shiny Pokemon is a Pokemon with a different color scheme and a shine effect when released into battle. It's rare. Like, 1/8192 rare. Really, that's the odds of encountering one. It has no effect on gameplay other than bragging rights.
Could've been something great. But ya' blew it... Ya' blew it.

However there is the masuda method of breading two pokemon from different countries ((Such as trading for a ditto from a person in china , and breeding it with your american charizard.)) makes it 1/1684 , or 8164 I forgot.Not just that in B/W 2 there is an item that increases the chance of the pokemon that appeared is shiny.

Well that seems pointless. I'd get it if it was super powerful but... Just for visuals? Wow.

That's another thing that annoys me actually. Super crazy low rates of finding a viaual item after days of grinding. Apart from looking good, what's the point?  :l

"Duuuuuuude, like, I just wasted three weeks of my life trying to get a shiny Magikarp, It's like so cool and you're not because, like, you don't have one."

I wouldn't brag about that! lol

Here's a personal favorite hate of mine

When you are in the middle of a gunfight, go to switch from your main gun to your sidearm

and switch to grenades.

I really hate games that don't require you to crouch to pick up items/weapons...

I've been playing pokemon since Pokemon Leafgreen and Firered. I've never seen even a single shiny pokemon. Ever.

Hey, it's no sillier than "wasting" three weeks of your life doing whatever else with a Pokemon game.  :P Some people just like aesthetics.

Pokevirus?

Another annoying thing about videogames is Cliffhangers. For those of you who've finished Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 for example, you'll understand. :c

Pokevirus?
Never knew it existed until a couple weeks ago, it's more rare than finding a wild shiny and it apparently doubles stat boosts when leveling

I find those Cosmic Clones in Super Mario Galaxy 2 & Super Mario 3D Land to be quite annoying.

It'll just keep copying everything you do. And you can't take a break. Don't let 'em touch you!

Gah, it's following me! Leave me alone! Eek! Everypony for themselves! D:
