Re: The Unofficial term becomes Official
I noticed and recall that while playing through the Hoenn games that in the "dictionary" feature for the trainer card and interviews and other stuff, that ALT. COLOR appears as a
choice. I suppose that "SHINY POKeMON", though not necessarily all shiny will likely continue to be so. Like in P/D, when a NPC states Pikachu's as being an orangey color rather than "goldish, neon, rusty, or something."
