The hunt for Shiny (or Chromatic) Pokémon takes on a whole new dimension in Pokémon Legends Arceus. Fans of the discipline will no doubt appreciate the new features that give this opus a playground conducive to the search for ultra-rare Pokémon. Here is a guide that will guide you and tell you how to increase your chances of encountering a Shiny Pokémon.
What is a Shiny Pokémon or Chromatic Pokémon?
How to recognize a Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Legend Arceus?
Pokémon Legends: Arceus finally makes things easier for us since we can more easily recognize a Shiny Pokémon from the outside.
Even if you can’t watch 360 degrees all the time,
How to increase your chances of catching Shiny Pokémon?
Even though some ways are longer than others, Pokémon Legends Arceus allows you to increase your chances of finding Shiny Pokémon through three elements.
Research Level 10
As you will have noticed, some quests sometimes require you to have a well-filled Pokédex sheet for Pokémon. This translates to Research Level 10 (indicated by a pokéball icon in the Pokédex menu for each Pokemon). If you are looking for a particular Shiny Pokémon, start by reaching this level 10 to increase the probability of encounter and thus increase to 1/2048.5 instead of 1/4096.
The Shiny Charm
The Shiny Charm is back in Pokémon Legends Arceus. This tool allows you to drastically increase your chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon. Combined with the previous trick, we thus go to 1/819.
HOW TO GET THE SHINY CHARM?
To find out how to unlock the Shiny Charm, you will need to obtain research level 10 for all Pokémon in the Pokédex. Then go see Professor Lavender who will give you the precious object.
The massive appearances
Sometimes when going on an expedition, you are going to have to deal with massive spawns. This is a random event that occurs regularly. When you see a Pokémon icon on Hisui’s map, it means that a place in that area is crawling with the same Pokémon.
Once in the corresponding area, the mass spawn is indicated on your map. Go to the point indicated to meet identical Pokémon that will appear in large numbers.
The complete file
Even if the research level 10 is easily reachable without wasting too much time, it is quite different to complete the sheets to 100%. However, this is one of the conditions to further increase your chances of catching Shiny Pokémon. This is the ultimate test for truly motivated hunters. Once the form is completed, small stars are added to the Pokeball icon mentioned above.
And that’s it for the Shiny guide. Also make sure you have as many items as possible (pokéball, bait, etc.) so you don’t miss your shot. If the Pokémon flees, frustration is guaranteed.
