    Ok so you inspired me to look at my fnaf book "the freddy files" and this may not be important at all but the beginning picture for chapter 2, it has a picture of the puppet giving a present to a little kid with red hair and freckles. You mentioned in an earlier video that Fritz, the one who posseses foxy, has freckles. Well in the background of this image, there are 5-7 normal foxys, and 2-3 funtime foxys in the background. Idk maybe this means absolutely nothing but I thought it'd be interesting to point out

    Minor correction for 9:59 in the video: It is not a lack of genetic diversity that causes mutation. The mutations were either already present or will arise randomly. However, there is typically still a good copy of the other gene to mask the effect of the bad gene (assuming Matpat is talking about recessive genes), and in a large, diverse gene pool the individual is less likely to have both copies of the gene be mutated. The lack of genetic diversity increases the probability the the offspring will inherit two mutant copies of any given gene (one from each parent), resulting in them express the mutant phenotype. There are exceptions to this, but in the vast majority of cases this is what happens.

    You claim that shinies are the inbred mutants, but what if the shinies are the original and the common pokemon are the inbred variants, which would explain why taking pokemon from different parts of the world causes a color change when you increase the genetic diversity. And honestly, how many pokemon were bred, hatched, and released because they weren't shiny from the same two parents? That's a whole lot of brothers and sisters running around in the wild. It would also explain the prevalence of non shiny pokemon, as they were originally the unique special variants that everyone wanted. Now genetic diversity is non-existent so almost every pokemon is regular.
