Pokemon Sword and Shield: Shiny Sealeo
The players are only able to select one Pokemon that they keep at the end of an outing. This resulted in a very difficult decision for Reddit user axel2ax, who was forced to select between the legendary Pokemon Ho-oh, and a Shiny Sealeo! The poster called it "the hardest decision" they had to make in the game, but it seems the trade-off was worth it to get their first Shiny Pokemon ever.
In the end, axel2ax made the right decision! Ho-oh might be a legendary Pokemon, but it will be available again, giving the player another chance to add it to their collection later. Comparatively, that Shiny Sealeo would be much tougher to come by again later. Shiny Pokemon do not have any specific benefits over their normal-colored counterparts, but they do make for a cool addition to a player's team or collection. Their extreme rarity has made them highly sought after, and some players can spend hundreds of hours playing without ever encountering one.
Getting to select only one of the two Pokemon likely came as a bit of a disappointment, but there are few things more exciting in the series than finding an unexpected Shiny Pokemon. The poster called it "the hardest decision" they had to make in the game, but it seems the trade-off was worth it to get their first Shiny Pokemon ever. That new Sealeo seems well worth the trade-off!
