What are the odds of finding shiny Pokemon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus?
SPOILER: first, you must take into account that we are going to talk about a new mechanic that implements Pokémon Legends: Arceus, so if you want to discover this on your own, we invite you to stop reading right now.
Well, this method involves the Mass Outbreak game mechanic, which consists of the appearance of a pack of Pokémon of the same species in a certain region of the map. The player can explore it and catch these Pokémon, which eventually exceed ten. By having a lot of encounters in a short capture time, it is easy to find shiny creatures, which can be seen on the map, without going into battle.
The odds of finding a shiny Pokémon are 1 in 4096, as in other games in the series (with Dex Research level 10). However, the odds improve if you have the Shiny Charm and participate in the Mass Outbreak. As a whole, the odds grow until 1 out of 128 encounters is with a shiny Pokémon (according to information from Twitter user Sibuna_Switch), which is incredible, especially since in one of these events, as we mentioned, many appear Pokémon of the same species.
But the Mass Outbreaks are finite, they end up, well, after capturing all the Pokémon and this is where the important discovery of the fans is, because they already realized how to take advantage of these events and capture many shiny ones.
In case you missed it: very soon you will be able to get shiny Pokémon impossible to catch until today.
How to easily get shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus?
In a very detailed video, youtuber PhillyBeatzU comments that in a matter of a few hours, players can find shiny creatures, something that will undoubtedly delight shinie hunters, and the method is completely official and simple.
According to the information, players only have to go to the places where a Mass Outbreak is reported to check if there is a shiny specimen and save in the area. If it doesn’t appear (in most cases), just restart without saving and exit the area, since exiting the area changes the instances that appear in the Mass Outbreak. Once in Julieaf Village, the player has to check the map to see if there is a Mass Out break or if it is the species they want (chain Mass Outbreak), if not, then they will have to restart without saving and exit the map again. area (return to Jubileaf) and check the map again.
In the event that the desired Mass Outbreak is again on the map, you must go to the destination region and, once there, save again. The steps, then, are repeated until a shiny Pokémon appears, when the player then has to save to keep it. In case you lose the capture, no problem, just restart without saving. Here it is important not to leave the region, because when it is done the Pokémon of the Mass Outbreak change. Right after reboot, without leaving the region, just head to Mass Outbreak directly, as you should find the shiny Pokemon again and again as long as you don’t leave the region or save after failing to catch.
