A shiny Pokémon is a variation of the Pokémon but has a different color. Shinies are rarer than their regular counterpart.
How to Get a Shiny Pokémon
Shinies can be found anywhere. Normally, the chance to find a shiny is 1/1000 (0.1% chance). If you want an increased chance to find them, Gamepass 7, multiplies it by 100, resulting in a 1 in 10 chance.
Some Pokémon get a major color change, and others change a bit, but not a lot. But there is also Pokémon like Minior that have a shiny form, but looks exactly the same. Some change a very small amount, like Garchomp.
These shinies look good (sometimes), and are things that you would want. Here's a list.
- Basically every single legendary
- Shiny Charizard
- Shiny Greninja
- Shiny Decidueye
- Shiny Megas
- Shiny Volcarona
- Shiny Groudon
- Shiny Rayquaza
- Shiny Scizor
Shinies are much, much rarer than normal Pokémon. In official Generation 1 Pokémon games, shinies weren't a thing. They were shiny if the stats were higher than original. If you don't think it is, send it to Gen 2, where shinies are the ones we have today.
