The Shiny Showdown Week 4: Bulbasaur vs Tyrantrum
#1
Star 
As the third week of The Shiny Showdown has come to a close, with Bruxish claiming a sizeable victory of 18 votes to 4 over Spearow. Congratulations to @wartty for nominating the winning Pokemon! We now move on to week 4, where it seems like we have a match up similar to last weeks, but I don't think theres point in calling it just yet. The two battling shinies we have this week are:

Bulbasaur the Seed Pokémon (nominated by @Vinnie )


Vs

Tyrantrum the Despot Pokémon (nominated by @PerchPond)

I'm hoping that this will be a close matchup as both of these shinies definitely have their selling points. Bulbasaur might fall into two of the main categories for boring shinies, looking very similar to it's normal sprite and being one of the infamous green(er) shines. But, I actually prefer it's shiny sprite. The grass green suits it better in my opinion and even though it's a very slight change it makes it look much better. And then we have Tyrantrum. I don't think I have to explain this pick much as it's just a great shiny in general! With it's drastic shift in colour scheme, it doesn't let down one bit. It's pallet of blues, greys and whites fits it perfectly. Anyway, good luck to both shinies and hopefull the best one will win!

Win a Shiny Bulbasaur or Tyrantrum!

I think tyrantrum looks better due to the fact that 
A. It isn't relished and worshipped as "Original gen 1 master"
and B. I think the shiny looks better.

Also, I don't really need a shiny bruxish, you can give it to someone else ^_^

Ait, time to talk up my homie Tongue  So Tyrantrum's serene shiny colourscheme of blue, grey and white makes it such an aesthetically pleasing shiny, right up there with the heavenly likes of shiny Nidoking and shiny Corsola. So my thoughts are as follows: its basic colourscheme of maroon, orange and white reflects Tyrantrum's Rock-typing, while when shiny, the blue colour highlights its Dragon-typing. Just spitting out Dragon Rage upon its subjects as the Despot Pokemon, and looking cool in the process.

Cheers

@PerchPond Spitting out Dragon Rage is less intimidating when it will only ever do 40 HP ;P

Gotta give this one to my boy Tyrantrum. I used the Masuda Method to hunt one of those for recs and I'm absolutely in love with him. The blue fits his royal demeanor, and his posture is fit for a king. Overall, the color compliments him in more ways than one. If it were between Venusaur and Tyrantrum, the decision might be a bit harder. But here, I have to say Tyrantrum.

Yeah, it's based on a T. Rex, meaning king after all, and the blue makes it look far more royal than it's normal form's brown! Tongue Bulbasaur just has no chance, seeing how the change is so incredibly minuscule in something so rare! One should at least be able to see the difference... Undecided
Away till 2018- and happy holidays to all who read this : )

Charmander is red,
Shiny Tyrantrum is blue.
Bulbasaur,
his shiny is better than you.

Also, Bulbasaur autocorrects to Balthazar.
