How to find shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Shiny Pokémon appear rarely in all biomes found in the Hisui region in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. You might even find the shining Alpha Pokémon if luck is really on your side.

Unlike many previous Pokémon titles, the different colors of the shiny Pokémon are visible outside of battle, so it’s easy to tell if you’ve found one. A short flashing effect, accompanied by a sound effect, will also occur when you first spot a pokemon and a shiny icon will appear next to its name.

When you find a shiny Pokemon, we highly recommend that you quickly save your game so you can reload in case the Pokemon escapes.

If you’re planning a brilliant hunt, especially for a specific Pokemon, we recommend upping your shiny odds by hitting a perfect entry level Pokédex and attending any Massive Mass Outbreak that happens to that Pokémon.

As already mentioned, shiny pokemon are rare and hunting for a particular person can take a long time. Unless you’re after the illustrious Ponyta, an encounter with that luminary is assured by doing Request 19 – A Peculiar Ponyta.
