List of Contents
Shinies are Pokemon whose colors are different from the usual Pokemon.
While shinies are rather rare compared to regular Pokemon, they aren't any stronger than Pokemon of the same species and level.
Shiny Pokemon tend to appear as Strong Foes in mystery dungeons. This also means that only a few kinds of Pokemon can be encountered as Shinies. For more information check out the article below.
List of Strong Foes and Rewards
Since Shiny Pokemon tend to show up as Strong Foes, you're going to need a high-levelled team that can defeat them.
|When this item is equipped, Pokemon you battle will be more likely to join you. It's also said that Shiny Pokemon will want to join you, too. It's only effective when the leader equips it, though.|
It hasn't been confirmed yet, but you might need to have a Friend Bow equipped in order to recruit Shiny Pokemon, especially since the Friend Bow's effect description explicitly mentions them.
However, even if it turns out that a Friend Bow isn't required to recruit Shiny Pokemon, we recommend having one equipped anyway as it increases the recruitment rate.
Other than their color palette, every condition is the same with a Strong Foe pokemon of the same type. Equip a Friend Bow, hunt them down and they will join your team eventually.
