Pokemon Legends: Arceus promises to shake up the typical Pokemon experience in a lot of different ways, introducing new features and streamlining old ones to make the whole experience more enjoyable and less frustrating.
One of the many changes the new game will feature is related to Shiny Pokemon. Will they be visible in the field? Let’s find out.
Can You See Shiny Pokemon in the Overworld in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?
In previous Pokemon games, there is no way of knowing if the wild Pokemon you are about to fight will be Shiny before the battle begins, which is not surprising, considering all wild Pokemon battles are random encounters. In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, however, things will be very different, as you will be able to see Pokemon roaming the field, and Shiny Pokemon will be fully visible in the Overworld.
Interestingly enough, if you encounter a Shiny Pokemon in the overworld, save your game, and reload your save file, the Shiny Pokemon will still be there, so you can save your game before starting the encounter so as to be able to try again catching it in case you fail the first time. With these improved mechanics, it will be easier than ever to catch the Shiny Pokemon of your dreams in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!
