I never thought there would be such a thing as shiny humans, because humans are not really Pokemon, and are based on real-life humans, as evidenced in the different skin colours like a slight tan (Brock and Iris) and distinctively African-American (Lenora). I imagine there are some very white humans as well, like European people.
However, if there are "shiny" humans, they would definitely be either crystal, golden, silver or diamond-coloured, because they're all shiny, aren't they?
Haha, yeah, seeing as they have never once shown a "Shiny tree" in the Pokémon world, and trees are far more common than Pokémon, or even a "Shiny human" since humans are more common than Pokémon, I think it's safe to assume that Shininess only happens to Pokémon and not to other organismas such as plants, animals, or people, lol
Well, shiny Pokemon are really just palette swaps of their normal counterparts. Most shiny Pokemon only have subtle differences from their normal counterparts, though. So for humans, it could be something as simple as a different hair color or eye color.
Reminds me of those "sparkling vampires" from Twilight...
As for this thread, the whole point of shiny Pokemon is to have something rare, unique, and special. Like a White Tiger in real life, but more of a special novelty type of thing. With humans, theres just no point. Besides, if humans need something special theres always aura powers or psychic abilities.
Shininess is just a gimmick, and as it doesn't necessarily change anything in the Pokemon world or franchise (other than the novelty feeling)
Having a shiny human would be pointless, because only him/her can own itself
But, during a mad hallucination I'd be able to picture shiny humans with a different (as in outstandingly different) skin color or hair color or eye color
But seeing as all sorts of hair colors are available in the Pokemon world, the second option is a bit moot
