Pokemon Let’s Go doesn’t release till November 18th but there are still people encountering it “in the wild”. One such recent encounter was at the NintendoUKVS Live event set up by Nintendo UK.
One of the questions that have been asked since the reveal of these two titles is how are shiny Pokemon caught? Well, the good news is that if you have been playing Pokemon Go on your mobile or tablets and caught any shiny Pokemon, the rumor is that you will be able to transfer all of those over to the game. Great news, right?! How about catching them in-game?
Dot Esports was there for the NintendoUKVS Live event and just so happened to get lucky enough to encounter a shiny Pokemon in the wild while playing Pokemon Let’s Go. They reported the experience in a recent article on their site:
A shiny Pokémon won’t look any different than other Pokémon in the overworld when it appears—it’ll have the same color as any other Pokémon. There is a catch, however—a small glimmer, an aura, gives the player a chance to know that the Pokémon they’re looking at is shiny.
Small star-like particles will appear above the Pokémon in the overworld to indicate that it’s a shiny Pokémon. All you then need to do is touch it and catch it before it disappears from the map. It should be noted, though, that this is the demo version of the game—but from what we heard at the event, this might be how shiny Pokémon will work in the retail release.
