What are the odds for a Pokemon being shiny in Pokemon Scarlet Violet?



  • New Pokemon generations usually change something regarding shiny Pokemon, or they bring new mechanics to boost shiny Pokemon spawn.

    Given that the brand new Generation 9 has just began, how do shiny Pokemon work now? Which are the odds for a wild Pokemon being shiny?



  • Just like with most of the modern games, Scarlet and Violet share base Shiny odds of 1 in 4096, https://i.stack.imgur.com/m0BM0.jpg .

    Using certain Sandwich recipes, players can activate something called Sparkling Power, a boost that will passively increase Shiny odds, with the maximum reached at level 3.

    The Shiny Charm makes a return in Scarlet and Violet.

    The final method for encountering wild Shinies with individually boosted odds is Mass Outbreaks, which work similarly to how they did in Legends: Arceus. Clearing Pokémon during a Mass Outbreak is how you increase Shiny odds, with modifiers kicking in after you clear 30 Pokémon and 60 Pokémon.

    These are the combined odds:

    Bonus Standard rate Mass Outbreak rate
    Base 1 in 4096 1 in 2048 (30 pkmn)
    1 in 1365.67 (60 pkmn)
    Shiny Charm 1 in 1365.67 1 in 1024 (30 pkmn)
    1 in 819 (60 pkmn)
    Sparkling Power lv. 3 1 in 1024 1 in 819 (30 pkmn)
    1 in 683 (60 pkms)
    Sparkling Power lv. 3 & Shiny Charm 1 in 683 1 in 585 (30 pkmn)
    1 in 512 (60 pkmn)
