Shiny Pokemon are all valid – the balls don’t matter

Shiny Pokémon have been a staple of the series since Generation 2, when players first went to the Lake of Rage and caught the red Gyarados. The Odd Egg in Pokémon Crystal also had a one in eight chance of being shiny, giving players the impression that some Pokémon aren’t quite like the others. Since then, the shiny hunt has become a popular type of game, with many hours spent finding and catching their favorite different colored mons.

Shiny Pokémon are rare. The base chance of finding one is around one in 4000, but there are several ways you can increase this. Breeding a Pokemon from a game in a different language, getting the shiny charm, and making Herba Mystica sandwiches are all methods in Scarlet and Violet. Shiny hunting has gotten easier over the years as more methods have been introduced with the growing popularity of this activity. But that has left many more angry than happy.
