How to find Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The most awaited Pokémon game, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, was finally released to the gaming world. This role-playing game was published by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company and developed by Gamefreak. You can enjoy this multiplayer game only on Nintendo Switch.

In this multiplayer game, you will encounter the basic mechanics of the predecessor Pokémon games, where you should catch your Pokemon or trade them and boost your skills. Don’t miss out on the vast world of Paldea to discover many rare Pokemons in this gameplay. One such Pokemon is Shiny Pokemon.

Shiny Pokemon are rare versions of regular Pokemon with various color systems. This Pokemon was introduced in Generation 2, and typically, your odds of getting a Shiny Pokemon are about 1 in 4096. That means Shiny Pokemons are challenging to get in this role-playing game. However, in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you can get one quickly by utilizing several approaches, and it doesn’t need any unique things to catch your Shiny.

 If you are trying to hunt this Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, this article will guide you on how to find Shiny Pokemon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to find Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

You have many options to find Shiny Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, such as special breeding techniques, picnics, food choices, and many more. Here, I come up with the best approaches in the below section to getting your shiny Pokemon in this Pokemon game.

Let’s do Picnic Resets

First, you require more patience than anything to obtain a Shiny Pokemon in this method. Afterward, if you’re a fan of employing the Masuda Method, but the luck of the draw is not your cup of tea, then you have another choice: Picnics. But, before that, make your way to the Pokemon Outbreak, where you can encounter many specific Pokemon in an area.

Once you have found the location, begin utilizing the Let’s Go feature to knock out almost 60 Pokemon in this gathering. It’s because we all know the Shiny Rate in this multiplayer game is 1/4096; if you knock out the 60 Pokemons, it will help you reduce the odds rate to 1/1365, according to one shiny hunter’s math.

If you are done killing 60 pokemon, don’t forget to save your game, start making the Picnic in the outbreak area, and set up the camera in that location. Note that every time you set up your Picnic, move around the Outbreak to find a shiny; if you can’t encounter any of them, repeat your Picnic reset till you collect shiny.

Remember to turn off the autosave while trying this method, which helps you avoid saving after slaying only one Pokemon, so it won’t increase the odds of getting your shiny Pokemon.

Complete the Pokedex to get the Shiny

Another straightforward method to get your Shiny Pokemon is completing your Pokedex mission. Once you have completed this gigantic task in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, get ready to communicate with Jacq, who offers Shiny Charm as a reward if you show him your Pokedex. Remember, Shiny Charm raises the odds and possibilities of finding the Shiny Pokemon.

To complete the Pokedex challenge quickly, start trading the missing parts with your friends since you don’t require every Pokemon in this role-playing game, as long as all the pages of your Pokedex are loaded. Once you have completed the tasks, you will get the reward from Jacq. Note that specific Pokemons are version exclusive in this game, so you should find a quick way to get those Pokemons in this gameplay.

Afterward, you will notice that getting the chance of Shiny Pokemon reduces from 1/4096 to 1/2048. If you add these odds to the method mentioned above, you will encounter the Shiny Pokemon more often than with the previous approach.

Explore the Overworld

Shiny Pokemon can be found anywhere in this role-playing game. But, unlike Pokemon Legends Arceus, Shiny Pokemon no longer produce that typical sound when they roam around in the Overworld, so it makes you find this Pokemon slightly complicated.

However, you can find your Shiny Pokemon by checking its color; if you can’t make it through the discoloration, use ZR, which helps you avoid attacking it. So, you can quickly get your Shiny in this approach.

Utilize the food to get your Shiny

Another best way to find your Shiny Pokemon in this multiplayer game is by employing food. To do this, use the power of Food Carts or Picnics obtainable in towns like Medali. Note that you can also try various foods which depend on your Shiny Hunting.

To get a precise result from the food, try out the Masuda-Method, which involves breeding Pokemon from various regions coming to the party, and start employing the foods which help you to boost the Egg Power.

If you don’t know about Egg Power, It’s a variable that helps you to get many eggs during the Picnic. So, to increase this power, you can make Sandwiches or buy specific foods from the food carts by paying a few dollars.

You can also include x1 Jam, X1 Apple, and your personalized choice in the sandwich to get more eggs. Don’t forget to try the special Herba Mystica in sandwiches by using 5-Star and 6-Star Tera Raids. Next, take a few moments of break, and you will see that your basket has ten eggs at a time. So, you can utilize this approach when you’re focused on other things, and you can also load about 800 spots if you don’t have other creatures in those 32 boxes.

Once you have enough eggs in your hand, make your way to the center area of Artazon, which has low obstacles, so you can quickly transfer the eggs without meeting Pokemon. Now, start to jump on your Legendary and dash through eggs.

“Patience” is the last resort

As I said earlier, to get the Shiny Pokemon in this open-world adventure game, you need more patience than anything. It’s because your friends may be lucky than you to acquire Shiny on their tutorial, and it may be trickier for you.

If you can’t differentiate the Special jingle of Shiny Pokemon in the open world, it will make things harder for you. On top of that, most of the Pokemon are small, and their spotlight is similar to Shiny Pokemon. Additionally, if the Pokemon outbreak happens in sloped mountains, you must be out of luck like me.

However, don’t give up on your Shiny Pokemon since you can get this Pokemon by using LetGo features to slay 60 Pokemon. Many possible road bumps help you to get the Shiny Pokemon.  

These are the best approaches to finding your Shine Pokemon in this multiplayer game. How do you find the Shiny Pokemon, or do you have any other ways to get this Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet?
