Alright, I know we aren't supposed to be suggesting things regarding the official pokemon, but I've recently noticed some stuff regarding the shiny forms of Castform; and that is that the shiny weather forms are identical to their non-shiny counterparts... Which is kind of disheartening, but it's alright since it's ingame canon I'd assume.

However, the in-PC form for at least the shiny sunny castform is just the sprite for the non-shiny (normal) Castform, which makes it a bit tricky to see that the pokemon in question is a shiny at all. So just to make it a bit simpler to spot in PC and avoid accidental release, maybe it could be altered a bit? Not a lot, necessarily, but just so that it doesn't look like any old Castform (regular form shiny castform has a different coloring from its non-shiny counterpart both as a bigger sprite and a PC sprite, so that one's fine).

I haven't had the opportunity to check on the shiny rain or hail forms for the shiny castform yet, so I can really only vouch for the sunny form being this way.

For clarification, "official Pokemon" on the DNS list just means stuff like suggesting we implement Mewtwo's alternate form or something (the answer for suggestions like that is "we're working on it/have an idea for it"). A suggestion like this is fine. It seems that the Hail form's shiny sprite is the same as the regular Hail form sprite, but Sunny and Rain both show the shiny as the normal Castform sprite. I can't really say much other than "I hope it gets fixed, too", but I figured I could at least expand on the rule concerning suggestions.
