About Rejuvenation Shinies

So i've been doing a shiny-only run of reborn e19 (it's been almost 3 months of suffering lamoo; am at pre-adrienn) and i've noticed something.

With this challenge i have obtained many shinies (around 500 in fact) and generally, i would consider them more aesthetically pleasing than the canon variants.

 

Some of my faves are:

Of course there's many more than these 7, but in general i can confidently say that i like probably ~95% of them.

 

As with anything shiny-related, everything's subjective, so here's some of reborn's stinkers:

Now, with rejuvenation, this becomes a different story. Unlike with reborn, i've never started a shiny-only run on it, and i don't plan on doing so for one simple reason: the shinies are a lot less interesting.

 

Like with everything, everything is subjective, so here's some of rejuvenation's greats:

However, i can confidently say that most of rejuvenation's shinies are really lackluster, with them either literally lacking luster or being WAYY too bright and desaturated.

 

Here's a look at the average rejuv shiny:

It breaks me to say, but i would call all of these very unappealing. Either their colors clash very badly, or they're too bright or too dark to look at properly. The majority of rejuvenation's shinies are at a lower level comparatively, and i would say that the main appeal to a shiny pokemon would be that they're supposed to look nice (sorry to whoever made these!). So this is a kind request to please let these 'mons shine like they should be able to.

I actually like the rejuv shaymin, golduck, albino raticate, and Toucan Sam is amusing IMO. Ferrothorn doesn't look that bad either and neither does Xatu. clefairy/Clefable are supposed to resemble Gengar I think but it misses the mark on execution.  Gourgeist I would've colored like a regular jack o lanturn, seems like such an obvious shiny idea.

 

Seaking is just terrible though, I know Seaking is boring  but that's just inexcusable. Kingler is awful too. Mamoswine is almost good but the feet should be a different color and maybe the tusk as it blends too much with the white fur.

Most of the shinies in rejuv were submitted by the community, as like with reborn there was a community effort to make all the custom shinies for rejuvenation a few years ago. We usually try to update some lines over time if we notice that we ourselves don't like them much either, but a lot of this is subjective and in the end we can't really satisfy everyone in that regard, so sorry if not all of them are to your tastes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If I have to be honest, there are so many good shinies there, like "broken-Bronzong", "Iron Man Zygarde" and "Mega Charizard but in base". For me, many ideas were so original and efficient, like the ones I'm using in my main run (favourite Gardevoir and Charizard tbh)
