Tagged With shiny hunting


Pokemon fans know just how rare finding a "shiny" is: You can play multiple games across generations and never encounter monsters in a special colouring. Typically, you have a one in 4000 chance of finding a shiny, which is pretty low. Ultra Sun and Moon change the odds by giving you another sure-fire way to find shinies, and players are collecting them by the truckload.


Not all Pokémon are created equal. Some legendary Pokémon, like Groudon and Kyogre, feature more prominently in the games' stories. Other Pokémon, like Garchomp, have superior stats. And some, like Lucario, are fan favourites. None of those, however, are as coveted as the fabled Shiny Pokémon.
