Can Charmander be Shiny or not in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

While you can find a wild Charmander in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, it is important to know that none of these will be Shiny—no matter how hard you try to find one while exploring Paldea. Still, that doesn’t mean that Charmander is Shiny-locked in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Those who wish to get their hands on a Shiny Charmander have to resort to breeding one. For this, you need to get Charizard (currently available in 7-star Raids) and Ditto first. Once you have them, you will be ready to try your luck with getting a Shiny Charmander.
