How to Get the Shiny Charm in Pokemon BDSP Games
When you think about it, the main requirement for getting the Shiny Charm in any game, and not only the Pokemon BDSP games, is to catch every single Sinnoh Dex Pokemon available in the game.
This isn’t the same as encountering every Pokemon. You need to actually possess all the 149 Sinnoh Dex Pokemon. This can be done through catching them in the wild, evolving caught Pokemon into forms you don’t possess, as well as trading Pokemon you cannot seem to normally obtain through your game.
Once you have all the Pokemon in the Sinnoh Dex captured, the rest of the process for getting the Shiny Charm is simple. You need to head to Hotel Grand Lake to the south of Valor Lakefront. Here, you need to talk to an NPC in the far left hotel, and upon acknowledging your completed Pokedex, he will hand you the Shiny Charm!
