So, what IS a Shinespark? Or a Shine? Or a Shine Charge?...
Shine: this is when your Speed Booster activates after running over long distances. This is the same thing as a Shinespark, except you are running instead of rocketing through the air at supersonic speeds.
Shinespark: this is when you crouch while Shining, then you jump into the air stright up and press a direction on the D-Pad to blast off at high speed in that direction. Shinesparks go only in one direction, and can't be slowed or controlled.
Shine Charge: this is when you crouch while Shining to preserve the Shine. You can run around for a few seconds at normal speed with the Shine Charge activated, allowing you to get from one destination so you can reactivate the Shine again when needed, though you will have to do this in the form of a Shinespark first. If you wait too long with the Shine Charge preserved, you will lose the Shine Charge.
