Ever since Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have been introduced, there’s been a mountain of hypothesis about what the subsequent era will convey. For instance, the starters have been revealed, resulting in predictions concerning the ultimate types of Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxley. the Shiny-hunting group has some needs for the brand new video games too.

Game journalist Cian Maher sat down with a number of Shiny hunters in an interview for IGN. The dialog coated the historical past of the function earlier than diving into what the subsequent video games may embody. Interviewee Whiskey_Rain_ is hoping for an excellent rarer tier of Shiny. Sword and Shield launched “Square Shinies,” which enter the battle with a flash of sq. glitter, quite than the normal star shapes. They have the identical uncommon shade schemes although, so Whiskey_Rain_ needs for a 3rd, even rarer palette.

Shiny hunter FR00DA87, in the meantime, needs extra equal odds throughout all Pokémon sorts. “The 1/100ish [chance] with the Shiny Charm isn’t awful,” they mentioned, “but each Pokémon [should] have equal methods of hunting.” Getting the Shiny Charm in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, for instance, improves your odds for some Pokémon, however not all. Some sorts are excluded. Considering followers all the time marvel if there are any new sorts in upcoming Pokémon video games, these Shiny odds must be, properly, even.

In any case, Shiny Pokémon are just about assured to look in Scarlet and Violet in some vogue. They’ve been part of each Pokémon game since Gen 2, and Pokémon Go even launched Shiny Shadow variants. Scarlet and Violet don’t have a locked-in launch date simply but, however they’re launching this yr. We’ll all be capable to go Shiny looking then.
