After you’ve completed your Pokédex in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you start to think about what else is there to do. Well, you might want to catch some shiny Pokémon, and Arceus is the best place to start.
The Pokédex comes with 242 Pokémon from all generations, and there are many which fans are looking forward to get. The chances of catching a shiny Pokémon are higher here.
We are here to tell you everything you need to know about catching a shiny Pokémon.
The shiny rates in Pokémon Legends: Arceus are a 1 in 4096 chance. There are a few things added, like Mass Outbreaks and Pokédex research, which can increase the chance by a lot.
How to catch shiny Pokémon?
The shiny Pokémon will appear as such in the overworld, and they may come with a different color than usual.
Increase Pokédex Research Level
If you increase your Pokédex research levels for a specific kind of Pokémon, you’ll do more than just increase your Survey Corps rank. If a species gets to Level 10, chances of finding a shiny Pokémon get higher. They will increase even more if you create the perfect Pokédex entry for your species.
Visit Mass Outbreaks
Mass Outbreaks usually appear in Hisui, and you will find them by looking at the map, where a small icon will appear, showing a species of Pokémon. Go there and watch Pokémon spawn everywhere, and try to catch them. Maybe you’ll even find some shiny ones.
Make sure you turn the autosave off, and manually save before you enter this specific area. Then, relaunch the game and hopefully you’ll catch a shiny Pokémon.
Get your hands on a Shiny Charm
The Shiny Charm is one of the easiest ways to increase your chances. But it might be quite hard to do so. In order to get the Shiny Charm, you will need to raise the the Pokédex research level of every Pokémon to Level 10 – only those found in the Hisui Pokédex. There are 242 Pokémon in Hisui, and there is a lot of work to do here.
