Shiny Pokemon

by Nookmall Team 13 Mar 2023
Similar to earlier Pokemon games, it is possible to come across uniquely colored Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet known as Shiny Pokemon. To acquire Shiny Pokemon and enhance your chances of obtaining them, you can refer to the following details, including Shiny Sandwich recipes and additional tips.

Identifying Shiny Pokemon in Violet and Scarlet
Apart from their distinct coloring, Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet do not possess any additional recognizable characteristics or effects. They do not emit any unique sound or sparkle in the game's overworld. However, when you encounter a Shiny Pokemon in a battle, it will display star-shaped sparkles, and if you successfully capture it, a special marker will appear on its summary page.

How to Get Shiny Pokemon
To catch a Shiny Pokemon in the overworld, save your progress and then catch it like any other Pokemon. According to Mr. Jacq, your homeroom teacher, the chance of encountering a Shiny Pokemon is approximately 1 in 4,000. However, the actual probability is 1 in 4,096, meaning that you will likely encounter one Shiny Pokemon for every 4,096 Pokemon you come across. Since Shiny Pokemon do not have many distinguishing features besides their unique coloration, it is important to be vigilant while playing. Nonetheless, there are methods to increase your chances of encountering Shiny Pokemon in the games Scarlet and Violet.

How to Boost Your Shiny Odds
There are several ways to increase your chances of finding Shiny Pokemon:

  • You can temporarily boost your odds by clearing Pokemon in Mass Outbreaks. 
  • Consuming Sparkling Power sandwiches.
  • Obtain the Shiny Charm
  • Use the Masuda Method when breeding Pokemon can also improve your odds.
