      You can be a massive mountain of a man and still have poor fighting strength if your build is too bulky and your movement too sluggish to properly exert power when it matters in combat. Similar reason why pokemon with high defensive stats has comparatively poor offensive stats, such as Onix and Bastiodon

      Bloodmoon Ursa is clearly based on that principle. Its build is actually a detriment in combat and it can't swing its arms with the same strength as a regular Ursaluna just lunging at its opponent, so it compensates by focusing on special attacks instead, which it has greater success, thanks to the "third eye" it has

        This, although ironically Bloodmoon has two points more in Speed.
        Aso from a gameplay perspective it makes it different from regular Ursaluna.
        Why have two forms of the same slow physical powerhouse?

        Japanese game designers are particularly autistic about having a specific way they want people to play their games and go apeshit when anyone slightly deviates from it.
        Shiny hunting even pokemon isn't their idea of fun, so therefore no one should be allowed to do it ever.

    it's because it's a unique individual, the only bloodmoon ursaluna that exists in world just isn't shiny. surely not hard to understand, right?

        legendary pokémon are just rare, not unique.
        >let me guess you started with gen 5
        no but that's a great example bc the reshiram and zekrom in the story are also unique individuals that aren't shiny. gameplay is allowed to be consistent with writing, sperglord.

    At first, shiny locks were to prevent autistic hunters from stopping the story from progressing regarding mandatory Legendaries such as the Unova Dragons and Kalos Duo, but they also had to factor in the fact that you could no longer abstract the static encounters suddenly going from one coloration to another over the course of a screen transition since they were no longer tiny sprites becoming bigger sprites, so they locked the Legendary Birds and Mewtwo in XY too.
    Then it became a matter of these Pokemon being story relevant and appearing prior to their encounter such as the ORAS Locks, and later still the legendaries of Alola. The UBs were likewise locked for SM because of their limited quantities, but then they stopped caring for the limited quantity USUM UBs for some reason.
    SWSH is where they started extending this to gift Pokemon for similar "don't let the player hold up progressing the story" reasons, the starters especially got hit by this because you could now see them in the overworld before you picked them, thus they had to keep consistent.
    And we know the rest from here with all the other static overworld encounters and story-relevant Pokemon, so in absolute summary,
    Overworld encounters and 3D were mistakes if you cared about shiny hunting legendaries.

      Interesting theory, but there's quite a few inconsistencies with the idea that this has anything to do with abstraction. For example, the Regis in ORAS aren't shiny locked, even with the 3d model being displayed regularly.

      I think you're on the right track but the fact of the matter is that there's no consistency to shiny locking. This means it's much more likely that they decide what to shiny lock on a case by case basis, based on just "do we want players to be able to access this shiny in this game?"

      SwSh does it both ways, Dynamax Adventures mean a lot of color flip-flopping

    • 2 weeks ago

      I think that's the most logical interpretation of most modern shiny locks, all the returning legendaries in SV being shiny+size locked is probably just cause they didn't want to deal with the hassle of the model randomly changing size or colour at an arbitrary point, now that there's no seperation between the overworld and the battles.
      The other reason being that shiny locked pokemon can now also be used as bait for engagement in online competitions or other promotions - I know a lot of people who didn't give a shit about the SWSH online battle challenges until they started handing out the shiny Galarian birds, and i'm willing to bet they'll do the same with the shiny Ruinous Treasures or the Loyal Three at some point down the line.

      SwSh does it both ways, Dynamax Adventures mean a lot of color flip-flopping

      The mechanics of the Dynamax Lair falls into the "don't let the player hold up progressing the story" category, except in this case it's "don't let the player hold up other people", because if you could immediately see the shiny in Dynamax Adventures, there would absolutely be sweaty tryhard hunters who would force-quit and abandon the raid as soon as they saw the non-shiny legendary, which would screw over everyone else just trying to beat the raid.
