My Favorite Shiny Pokemon | Gen 1 – Kanto

Good morning everyone! I’ve been wanting to do a post like this for a while now and I’m so excited about it! I plan on showing you all my favorite shiny Pokemon from the Kanto region, which is Generation 1.

Just know that this is my personal opinion and don’t think that I’m hating on the shiny pokemon you love just because they aren’t on this list. Also, this list is based on aesthetic only, not moves or strength of the pokemon. It’s just based on how much I like their shiny, especially compared to the original.

Also, I will not be doing any legendaries, giganimax, Alolan, Galarian, or mega forms. This is strictly based on Gen 1 OG pokemon, not counting legendaries.

I do plan on continuing this series through each generation and then comparing Alolan and Galarian, plus specific posts where I look at legendaries, giganimax, and Mega forms.

Anyway, now that all of that is out of the way, let’s get right into this. This is in order of number.

























So, I didn’t know about shiny pokemon until Pokemon Go, so these are all still fairly new to me. There are so many different shiny pokemon that I like more than the original. My husband and I are working toward getting a living pokedex and a living shiny pokedex (best we can). So seeing all of them is so surprising sometimes. Not to mention the fact that half the time if I see a pokemon that looks really cool, I think it’s shiny and my husband is like “no. It’s normal.” Oops.

Anyway, that’s going to be it for this one. I hope you all enjoyed! Let me know in the comments your favorite Kanto region pokemon or if you like any of these more than the original versions.

Thank you so much for joining me. I hope you all stick around for more of these types of posts and also my other posts! I’ll see you all very soon!

  1. This post was like walking down memory lane! I have no idea what “shiny” is. Closest I can think of are holographic cards. Gen 1 OG Pokemon will always be my favorite 😍

    1. I didn’t know what they were either! But they are β€œrare” versions of pokemon that look different (is what I gathered). So you have a very very low chance of running into a shiny version of almost any PokΓ©mon while playing the games. So all the PokΓ©mon showed here, you can get the shiny version of in any game, I believe. Usually it take running into them a bunch of times or hatching a ton of eggs πŸ˜‚

  2. I have never played any kind of Pokemon game myself (though I am considering trying Let’s Go Eevee because I saw a speedrun of it and Eevee is so cute) so I rank my favorite Pokemon purely based on the aesthetics, too. πŸ™‚ Ponyta and Rapidash have always been favorites of mine, as well as anything dragon.

    1. To be honest, I didn’t really like Let’s Go Eevee and that’s just watching my husband play a bit. But that’s coming from someone who has played the other games. So I say give it a try if you want to!


      1. Oh, yeah. It’s super cute! I just didn’t personally like the gameplay. Sword and Shield did a decent job at mixing the two, in my opinion. But if you’re looking for the cute, then maybe Let’s Go will work for you! It has a lot of connections with Pokemon Go which makes it interesting.


      2. I’m kinda hoping that since I don’t know the other Pokemon games, the gameplay differences won’t matter to me since I have nothing to compare it to. I’ll have to post about it when I eventually try it. πŸ™‚
