Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the latest entry in the long-running Pokémon franchise and aims to shake up the franchise in various ways. Some players in every entry of the mainline Pokémon participate in is shiny hunting, and the process can be more tedious than needed in several past games. Will players finally see shiny Pokémon without battling them in Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

Players can see shiny Pokémon in the overworld of Pokémon Legends: Arceus. These rare Pokémon will not only show up with a different hue and color pattern than their counterparts, but players will hear a unique sound cue in-game when they appear, making shiny hunting far more accessible than in previous entries in the franchise.
