    Oh my gooooooooooood Mex actually stopped being a lazy butt and posted something!

    First some smoke spirits instead of their usual... poison... vape... selves:
    #092: Gastly-- gastlyShiny1.png
    #093: Haunter-- haunterShiny1.png
    #094: Gengar-- gengarShiny1.png

    Onix is WAY harder to do something with than you might think, so I copped out and went for gold:
    #095: Onix-- onixShiny1.png

    I'm surprised how changing one pixel can change these two from doofy to unsettling:
    #096: Drowzee-- drowzeeShiny1.png
    #097: Hypno-- hypnoShiny1.png

    These two look like they belong in some kind of old monster movie:
    #098: Krabby-- krabbyShiny1.png
    #099: Kingler-- kinglerShiny1.png

    And I took a couple liberties with these two, but come on! You try making reasonable designs for some of the laziest Pokemon in a generation defined by simplicity/limited designs/laziness:

    Oh, and uh one more thing:

    #09M: Mega Gengar-- megagengarShiny1.png

    Looks like the smoke spirits woke the fuck up and caught fire (somehow).

    HOLY SHIT ANOTHA ONE!

    Those are some nasty-ass eggs, and then coconuts that actually look like coconuts:
    #102: Exeggcute-- exeggcuteShiny1.png
    #103: Exeggutor-- exeggutorShiny1.png

    Some volcanic sad bois whose bones remind me of chocolate bones:
    #104: Cubone-- cuboneShiny1.png
    #105: Marowak-- marowakShiny1.png

    Some very 80's fighters (Hitmonchan looks to me like a Mother 3 enemy 0_0 something like 'boxing lady'):
    #106: Hitmonlee-- hitmonleeShiny1.png
    #107: Hitmonchan-- hitmonchanShiny1.png

    Lickitung had way too many blue raspberry dum-dums:
    #108: Lickitung-- lickitingShiny1.png

    I've used way too many fire themes for my shinies, but it WORKS SO WELL FOR GEN 1:
    #109: Koffing-- koffingShiny1.png
    #110: Weezing-- weezingShiny1.png

    OOF I've made a double-bill for this one! Two posts for the price of one!

    Two coppery electric rhinos:
    #111: Rhyhorn-- rhyhornShiny1.png
    #112: Rhydon-- rhydonShiny1.png

    I really liked how Clefairy and Clefable turned out, so I went with another lunar palette:
    #113: Chansey-- chanseyShiny1.png

    I made Tangela look like electrical wires:
    #114: Tangela-- tangelaShiny1.png

    And I tried to make Kangaskhan look armored, but I think she just ended up as another silver/gold shiny:
    #115: Kangaskhan-- kangaskhanShiny1.png

    I wanted to make these two look more tropical, and I think it went well:
    #116: Horsea-- horseaShiny1.png
    #117: Seadra-- seadraShiny1.png

    I made a Goldeen that's actually gold:
    #118: Goldeen-- goldeenShiny1.png
    #119: Seaking-- seakingShiny1.png

    And of course the queen of the meta herself:

    #10M: Mega Kangaskhan-- megakangaskhanShiny1.png

    And now for part 2 of the double-bill!

    It's surprisingly hard to make shinies for these two, but I made it work:
    #120: Staryu-- staryuShiny1.png
    #121: Starmie-- starmieShiny1.png

    I made Mr. Mime even creepier, somehow:
    #122: Mr. Mime-- mrmimeShiny1.png

    I got inspired by my volcanic design for Scyvern and worked backwards from there:
    #123: Scyther-- scytherShiny1.png

    Not sure exactly what I did here, but it's... something:
    #124: Jynx-- jynxShiny1.png

    i made him red:
    #125: Electabuzz-- electabuzzShiny1.png

    And I gave Magmar sort of a ghost fire design:
    #126: Magmar-- magmarShiny1.png

    i made him green:
    #127: Pinsir-- pinsirShiny1.png

    And I made Tauros edgy with gold highlights:
    #128: Tauros-- taurosShiny1.png

    But of course, one of our featured palette swaps this time has a mega! In this case, I think I made Mega Pinsir look like a gargoyle of some kind:
    #11M: Mega Pinsir-- megapinsirShiny1.png
