Shinys Officialy Seen In ‘Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Let’s Go, Eevee!’

by Dylan Blight


If you like collecting shiny things in real life, but more importantly in Pokémon games, good news, we now know how the shinys will work in the Pokémon: Let’s Go games. 

At a press event in the UK, this past week Dotesports have reported they not only saw but also caught a shiny in the wild while playing a demo of  Pokémon: Let’s Go. Although it could change before the final release, it’s unlikely. 

The  Pokémon in the wild will have a small but visible sign to let you know they are shiny in the form of three tiny glimmers above their heads. It’s better than how previous games including  Pokémon Go handle the shinys where you won’t know its a shiny until you enter battle against the Pokémon in the wild. Once in battle, you will see the physical change in appearance shiny Pokémon are known to display.

It’s only a small glimmer in the wild, but entering a new area and spotting that glimmer in the corner of your eye and rushing to the Pokémon before it disappears I’m sure will be a rush for  Pokémon players this November when  Pokémon: Let’s Go releases on the Nintendo Switch.
