CATCHING Rare Shiny Pokémon is one of the most popular ways for fans to enjoy Pokémon games, but they are very hard to find.
But even with the best Shiny hunting methods, your best odds are only 1/512.
However, there is a way to guarantee catching a Shiny Pokémon, and it’s one of the most powerful Pokémon in the game.
Here’s how to be guaranteed to catch a Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: How to Catch Shiny Fluttermane
Flutter Mane is a Paradox Pokémon exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet as it is the previous form of Misdreavus.
Pokémon Violet players can still catch this Shiny, but they’ll need a friend with a copy of Pokémon Scarlet to invite them to their game via Union Circle.
To do this, the Scarlet player must go to a Pokécenter, stand in the Union Circle, and send an invite.
If you then enter the same code, you will appear in your friend’s game.
Once you’ve bonded with Pokémon Scarlet, here’s how to catch your Shiny Flutter Mane.
First you have to wait until the day in the game. This is not linked to your Switch’s clock, but changes naturally every 30 minutes.
There is no way to change this in game, you just have to wait for the time to change.
Then go outside where Flutter Mane can be found and prepare a picnic.
You need to prepare and eat the following sandwich:
- 2x Salty Herba Mystica and red onion
Salty Herba Mystica is a rare item that drops in five-star raids. These are a little tricky so it’s advisable that you have a friend help you out.
This sandwich greatly increases the chances of finding Shiny Ghost-type Pokemon.
Then enter Area Zero and walk around until you find your Shiny Flutter Mane.
This works so that Ghost-type Pokémon only spawn at night. However, the sandwich guarantees that a Shiny Pokemon will spawn.
Since no other Ghost types spawn that day, it forces the game to spawn a Shiny Flutter Mane.
Flutter Mane will be like any other Shiny Pokemon, so be careful when catching it to avoid knocking it out.
