Shiny Corp is a famous group that does a variety of schemes to profit from the hunt for shinies. They're very dangerous, but elude capture through the clever use of grunts who don't know who they're working for.
The only members are two unnamed characters. Very little is known about them.
CASE FILE 1 Edit
This operation was briefly seen as a ranger flipped through the case files. It seemed to involve mass breeding.
CASE FILE 5 Edit
This operation was an attempt to make artificial melanistic and "rainbow" Pokemon. A serum was used to "make their fur and skin change pigments" however most of the Pokemon tested on died. According to the two members, they were confident the Pokemon would be healthy. Only two survived for an extended period of time, the rainbow Pachirisu and Chimo. The rainbow Pachirisu was sold to someone but died shortly after. Chimo was rescued by the Ranger Base and held there for awhile, until Jordan took him and faked his death to keep him safe. Rief was also involved in the project, though he didn't know the research was harming Pokemon.
CASE FILE 16 Edit
In Icirrus City (in Unova), locals spoke of the "winter Sawsbuck" that was white year-round. Shiny Corp came in and destroyed the ecosystem overnight on a hunt for it. It hasn't been seen since.
CASE FILE 18 Edit
This case involved mass breeding Porygon, assumed to be on hunt for an albino. The PCs with the hundreds of non-shinies were found by the Ranger Base.
CASE FILE 20 Edit
Conducted over the course of an estimated month, Shiny Corp mass bred Vulpix. The amount makes it clear that they were hunting for a melanistic, and almost certainly succeeded. The PC box filled with Vulpix was found. One of the boxes was named "Whistle." These Vulpix were released, and were trained to stand in formation if you whistle. They had letters shaved into them that, when standing correctly, spelled "RIEF IS SHINY CORP".
