Pokemon Legends Arceus is the latest entry in the popular Pokemon series, and it takes place in the Hisui region where players will operate as part of Galaxy Team while filling out their Pokedex. The game features a semi open-world with various different zones to explore, along with a new crafting system that involves resource gathering and item management. Here’s how to get the Shiny Charm in Pokemon Legends Arceus.
Getting the Shiny Charm in Pokemon Legends Arceus
The Shiny Charm is a key item that’s been present in a lot of the newer Pokemon games, and if you’re hoping to catch shiny Pokemon for your collection, you’re definitely going to want to nab this at some point.
- First, you’ll need to complete the Pokedex.
In Pokemon Legends Arceus, completing the Pokedex means that you need to reach research level 10 for all 242 Pokemon that are available in the game. This means that you’ll likely need to catch and battle the same Pokemon multiple times, while also fulfilling other conditions like watching them evolve and using certain moves in a fight. You don’t need to complete every single task listed in the Pokedex; you just need to complete enough to reach level 10.
- Once you’ve completed the Pokedex, head back to Galaxy Team headquarters in Jubilife Village and speak with Laventon in his office.
With the Pokedex now complete, Laventon will hand over the Shiny Charm.
- Continue exploring the Hisui region with the Shiny Charm in your inventory to increase your odds of encountering shiny Pokemon.
With the Shiny Charm, your chances of encountering a shiny Pokemon is around 1/819. However, if you’ve done perfect research on a particular Pokemon (meaning that you’ve completed every single task fully), the odds go up to 1/585.
It’s not necessary to grind out all the research levels for all your Pokemon as you still have a shot at encountering a shiny even without the item, but your chances will be pretty abysmal. Our best tip for taking on this endeavor is to just battle and capture as many Pokemon as you can while you’re playing through the story, and occasionally switch out members of your team to experiment with different moves.
