This truly is the best worst Pokemon game of all timeMore shiny Pokemon (and my cat sometimes): twitter.com/Nokimons
Fun fact tatsugiri can only spawn in that form in outbreaks this game is truly broke on but amazing
@Jevair Rhoden I picked quaxly too and my quaquaval one shots anything
You picked the worst starter out of the three the best is fuecoco
I got fucked over my first shiny ever. And I've been playing since black and white.
I found this game so much more fun when you just slow down. Instead of running straight from point A to B I just walked in areas let my Pokémon out and let them play in water ext. it just felt better to not fly around everywhere and just be more “grounded”
you had to slow down anyway cuz the game did it for you.
That's exactly what I did for Breath of the Wild. It was super fun to go back and look at the entire pathway I took via the Sheika Slate. I wish there was a way to do that here in Scarlet/Violet!
Yeah I explores around for like half an hour before going to school and ended up finding my first ever shiny (lechonk)
Yep I still haven't finished the game because I still just wanna run around climbing stuff and catching pokes
As soon as I started the game, I saw sandygast and knew i needed a shiny one. Its got such a beautiful and eerie shiny. After an hour and a half of just using a ground type sandwich, I got my shiny sandygast and named her "Sand-Ghastle". Shes essential to my team and she was my first shiny in Violet 💛🖤💙
@Cthuwu :} I agree! I love hearing peoples stories about their pokemon. Sand-Ghastle is still always on my team during battles even tho I have tons more shinies now. She's my companion and I love her! 😊
I know it’s corny but I LIVE for these Pokemon stories. Like when people finally find a favorite they’ve had since childhood or when you just see a new one and you’re like yep that’s it! That’s the one! And then they become an essential mon in your party that goes everywhere with you for your playthrough. Just very sweet to me, idk why lol this story is adorable
@Phantasmagoric spectre Thank you, I really struggled with fnding a name for her 😂
I love Sand-ghastle, 10/10 nickname
Great pokemon choice
Yeah, steel types looking metallic in this gen look so good. I found a shiny scyther and got a friend to help me evolve it into a scizor and I love him. The shade of green in other games is OK, but make it look metallic and it looks amazing
My first full odds is a Bisharp at 51 hrs, and I love her!
I love your narration, it’s like I’m hearing my own thoughts - about the glitches I too have experienced, about the Minecraft Pokémon… haha I found a shiny pig thing lol in the first hour or so of playing and I was very surprised but then also annoyed that I had to play the game with a normal type because it looked cool as a shiny. As a rule I don’t often tend to try play with any of the easier early encounters as they’re very common but it was a shiny so I kept it. Much later I found a shiny dugtrio and the game says I’ve battled a 3rd shiny but no idea what it was…
I’ve already finished the game and spent a hundred hours of Violet and I have not encountered any shinies still! For a guy that started playing pokemon with Arceus, the difficulty of finding shinies here was a total let down! 😅 good thing the games story and Pokédex completion project has kept me to continue! The Tera Raid battles was also a boon!
I vividly remember the first shiny I caught in this game. I was training up around Levincia for the gym and out of nowhere there was a shiny Litleo. That was the first full odds shiny I have ever found.
You know why Bronzong is special to me? It actually was my first every shiny. I will never forget this, it was a full odd random shiny I just ran in, in Pokemon Platinum. It was awsome :D
I still haven't gotten my first gen 9 shiny yet after around 60 hours, but after this, i'm beyond determined to get onegreat stuff as always, nokiand even though shiny charcadet isn't the most overwhelmingly great shiny, i've decided it's my target now and i'll update here once i've got it in my grubby little mitts lmaoupdate: i ran out of space in my boxes for eggs and i found a full odds shiny lokix instead lmao, but i mean hey a shiny is a shiny !
@Darkrai went looking for garganacl. Came back with 2 glimmets and a glimmora lol
Mine was so random with a shiny Abomasnow. Not my most desired but I am happy to have a shiny!
theres a new methodwhere you walk into a town, it respawns new pokemon when you walk out,i'd try that for any shiny pokemon you want!
After 100 hours I completed the pokedex and the full story and only 1 shiny which was a skiploom 😅
@Jennifer Hill Relatable, my eyesight isn’t the worst… But straining my eyes to try and spot shinies sets off my migraines like crazy 😭 I wish there was some kind of cue. Plus, how do you hunt something like shiny Flabébé 😂 IT’S SO SMALL
I was so happy to find a shiny Heracross during my normal playthrough. It helps that it was bright pink, so no chance I could miss it😁
I caught my first full odds shiny before the third gym. Finizen. Such a good shiny. But Palafin is weird, but also awesome.
I just found my first ever full odds shiny and I just want to thank you for getting me into the completionist mood, because if I hadn’t been in that mood, I would’ve never gone back to area zero for the paradox Pokémon and would have never found that shiny.
First random shiny I find in this game and it was Shinx, Luxray is my favorite pokemon of all time. Froslass is also one of my favorites and the only other random full-odds shiny I've found so far was a female Snorunt. I'm still working towards completing the dex (first time I'll ever do it) so I can pick up shiny hunting for real because this game made me realize how much fun it can be
Shiny hunting in this games is really fun... i'm almost at my 30th shiny in the game without shiny charm too.
Thank you for the code for the Masuda method!! And thank you to the person who was nice enough to trade me a foreign shiny perfect IV Ditto! You guys are awesome 😭🙌🏼
forretress was my first shiny way back in gen 6, and it’s become my favorite pokemon since. so happy with how gorgoeous the shiny looks in this game
When I was clearing out my boxes the other day I found a shiny froslass that I never knew I had. Apparently the ONLY frosslass I've ever caught just happened to be shiny and I didn't even notice the particles when battling it...
I had left my switch unattended while playing a different game. After finishing the game, I looked back at my switch to literally see a shiny lechonk just waiting and staring at me to come back. It was honestly probably one of the coolest yet funniest ways to find a shiny by staying still lol.
Lechonk is supreme.
@The Gaming Cats what lmao, they are shiny in the over world in Let’s go
@The Gaming Cats dont they have a shiny aura?
@Deku Kitty shinies are not visible outside of battle in the let's go games-
Shiny rockidee was my first shiny as well in Violet! One of my favorites and my first time having a shiny corviknight.
this is such a great video!! before i completed the dex i had 65 hours in the game without a shiny. i got a full odds shiny toxel then i got the charm and now (2 days later) i have 7 shinies 😭 i was only actively seeking 3 of them but its so great. random shinies make me wanna play more, they add a sense of excitement for me:)
Haha, I got a shiny flamigo on my 4th day playing Pokémon violet. Not the best shiny, but my luck usually sucks so it’s something. And the funniest part was, I had been a bit busy so I only played about 1 or 2 hours a day. Plus, it was full odds!
hope we can see more of your adventure here this was a great (and surprisingly wholesome) video to watch :D
You and Mimik getting your shiny targets at the same time has to be one of the craziest things.... just ever?
the exact same thing happend a few years ago with other youtubers
@Rusty Shackleford ,,,, what? they were two different pokemon and one was hunted through the outbreak method and the other was hatched through an egg, so,,, what?
Rng in these games is lazy, most seeds are duplicates so... less crazy when you dig into how bad the game is
Love this video man! :) 18 min in so far, such good effort put in and I LOVE your shiny forretress and Dondozo I neeeeeeed them
i only have 3 shines (one of which i specifically hunted for) and im almost 100% percent certain ive walked passed a shiny or two cause of the no noise/ how similar some shines look to the regular forms
just want to say that froslass is my second favorite pokemon, only behind glaceon. I also got a full odds shiny snorunt, so I just need a dawn stone
I got 3 shinies in my first playthrough, including my first golden Magikarp!
I honestly love these games. The story caught my attention and I didn’t want to let go. The characters felt relatable for me. Bugs aside, these are one of the best ever. Also I got to name my grass cat Morgana after my favorite game of all time Persona 5 Royal!
@Riley Saunders haru is probably my favorite. Her combat skills are incredible and is constantly on my team. And she is really funny when accidentally roast a friend like calling Ryuji chicken.
Oh nice, you play Persona 5 royal? Me too, I loved that game, my favorite Persona is Seth, who's your fav character in the game (mine is Yusuke)
fr the story and characters are so good i can’t get enough of them
Yes this is the first time I've been grabbed by a Pokemon story I love this game lol
Just a FYi in case- when hatching eggs u can turn off move learning in options. the pokemon can still learn moves from remember but itll skip the pop ups!!
About 5 minutes into violet i ran into my first wild shiny ever, was a psyduck, and holy shit is that a good feeling to finally get one after playing since gen 4.
Subscribed the moment you said your favourite Pokémon was Froslass. We need more of us💙
I had found 2 full odds shinies on Thanksgiving- an Eevee in a Tera Raid, and a Donphan in the wild. Post Shiny-Charm I've found (without sandwich boosts)- Glimmora, Gible, andHoppip. Intentionally Shiny Hunting, I've caught 2 Slither Wings (I have Violet, so I had help)
This is truly the pokemon game of all time
I have 60 ours to bu have 60 shinys haha
@Heartless Yes If it's an animated movie FOR CHILDREN 😂
@Apex Ashan you use that backwards logic for animated movies as well, don't you?
@Hedgehog Gamer Davis Can I get a amen? Hallelujah! I'm stalling completing the story by shiny hunting, hoping they will deliver the performance update, this game desperately needs to shine like a fucking DIAMOND!(or reflect light, like a real diamond does, for the smartasses out there.)
I mean yeah! It is the pokemon game!
So jealous of all those Glimmets! I want a shiny Glimmora so bad!
I usually complete a pokedex in like a year after a game releases.I completed mine in a week on Violet.I also got 4 shinies so far, working on fidough next.
Froslass was my first SV shiny. I was using it for exp for my ceruledge 🤣
My first shiny in this game had to be my favorite pokemon Magnimite. I caught it and named in Silicon.
My first random shiny in gen 9 ended up being a Mareep. I was doing challenge where my friend made a team for me and vice versa. Im just going around battling and catching Mareep because i wanted one with a more ideal nature. It caught me off guard seeing a pink sheep just wandering around
my favourite pokemon is luxray, and in all my time playing pokemon, id only ever gotten like 2 shiniesand before the first gym i was just having fun exploring the rocky area and randomly found a shiny shinxi was so happy
I found a shiny starly in the first hour of playing but I fell off the edge before I could catch it
@Klein Garganta id love a shiny goat! Ive always loved Skiddo/Gogoat
My first was the same as ign’s preview: shiny skiddo. Absolutely love the little fella to bits
I found a shiny chansey first, then a smolov, and then a Luxio all within a span of 3 days. I was lucky with the smolov I had no idea it was in the grass and then bam random encounter and it was shiny lol
I've probably had the best shiny odds I'll ever have while deliberately hunting in this game, by getting a shiny Smoliv via Masuda method faster than it took me to actually find a ditto to Masuda hunt with. Probably like the 15th egg hatched, with half of them being Grass Cats because I forgot to remove my starter from the party.That will probably never happen again, but I'm so excited it did lolol
oh man, loved your video. You made me laugh so much!
The Cascarrafa town song has quickly become my favorite pokemon town theme, it has no right being so good lmao
something like 20:25 happened with me and my friend at the start of a joint nuzlocke, we both got a shiny gen 8 squirrel thing at almost the exact same time.
just completed the game , dindt expect it to be so emotional
I definetly cried at least once
Lol that ish got dark😂
@Megatron true , rip professor sada/turo
this vid made me wanna try shiny hunting in sv, and within a minute of getting back on the game i found a shiny orthworm
hold on i thought i was lucky with getting a shiny lechonk and a bombirdier early in an outbreak but your lucky + commitment yielded so much more
While watching your video I found a shiny Froslass and I was blown away!
I absolutely love your videos! And i totally agree that Scarlet/Violet it the best worst pokemon game ever xD but i still have so much fun playing it! So far i caught 7 random full odds shinies: mareep, rockruff, hoppip, shinx and litleo, and only one my first paldean shiny which i did with a mass outbreak method and it was wattrel! I hope your future hunts will be just as lucky as we saw in the video ^^
man the wait for this was worth it, you got some insane luck there my guy
A few weeks ago I remember i was riding Miraidon towards Casseroya Lake, where i see this Cyclizar run past and despawn, idk if it was a shiny, the lighting and shade was kinda giving it a weird color, so i just shrugged it off cause i searched up shiny cyclizar and the color did not match the cyclizar that despawned and went on my wayBut as soon as i crossed the bridge to enter casseroya lake, my gut told me to turn around and as i did, there was a shiny Psyduck, at the edge of the river bank, staring back at meI was so shocked i didnt save the game and just rushed in to catch itAnd just last night, i was driving up Glassedo Mountain to find Crabominable to get the item drop to make the tm for brick break to teach to the now shiny golduck (its named Quackster) out from a swarm of 5 sneasels, a shiny sneasel was staring at meSo now i have 2 full odds random shinies in this gameAnd my team is already at its mid 70s (consisting of Meowscarada, Clodsire, Shiny Golduck, Belibolt, Male Oinkologne and The Titan Klawf)
Dondozo will forever haunt me.I was crossing through the lake and saw a shiny one out of the corner of my eye. Needless to say, a Veluza sped at me at super sonic speed, and I ran away as fast as I could but it was too late. That thing just sank to the bottom and despawned.
Saw my first Tinkaton in a raid battle. She looked weird, like she could be a shiny but I couldn't tell. I wasn't going to win the raid battle so I ran, thinking if it was a shiny, oh well, nothing I can do. Levelled pokemon and changed strat, came back in a few minutes and re-entered the raid. Shiny Tinkaton, still there, still waiting. And that folks is how I traded a 4/6 IV Shiny Tinkaton to someone for a Japanese Charmander. Now the hunt begins for the shiny charmander....
I was EV training my azumarill by doing a rufflet mass outbreak. It was nighttime (in pokemon scarlet) and I didnt even know what a shiny rufflet looked like. after I killed a normal rufflet, a shiny rufflet ran into me and I was shocked since im never lucky in pokemon games.
Seeing people enjoy Froslass makes me happy. Thank you for making me smile today. (I know I'm a month late but still)
I got same first gen 9 shiny as you and also shockd about how it looks after it evolved haha
Everybody I’ve seen has been getting lucky with their first shiny. I got a Phanpy, but at least my 2 Noibat and Iron Valiant make up for it.
watching this video while shiny hunting and finding nothing really makes you wanna break your switch in half
Found three shinies during my play through pretty crazy.(Shinx, Gogoat, Toxtricity)
PSA for you and anyone else out there in a similar situation: Just wanna let you know, there IS an option in the option menu if this game to turn off the prompt you get when a Pokemon in your party wants to learn a new move. Normally, I think it's better to leave the prompt on but in your specific scenario, where you have a bunch of baby Pokemon leveling up and learning lots of stuff quickly, that's when it's best to turn those off..Unfortunately, there's still no mass release option which is BS imo... PLA had that option! Why would you not implement that?! It can't be too hard to do! 😖
Probably because the focus on PLA was catching to build up the entire pokedex, in every other game you only need one of each pokemon to complete that specific pokemons dex entry, hence, no need for mass release.
I also wish there was an option to search while making a sandwich! It's so annoying trying to find what I want.
i am one of the 8 Froslass fans in the world, loved her way back when she came out in DPP, and had her on my first Scarlet Elite 4 run
My second shiny in this game was a marked shiny iron valiant!
There are some mons that are essentially impossible to distinguish in the overworld give the minimal difference between the two versions... like slowpoke. How did you even recognize the shiny Magnemite..? for real lol
I managed to find my first shiny after I beat the game, it was a Jumpluff.
Always an absolutely wonderful time watching your vids Noki! Amazing finds!!
Love your videos! Maybe you and Noki could collab one day? 😄
Super big fan
I gave up on belly drum...Ended up runningAzumarill @ Ability Shield Ability: Huge Power EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk Adamant Nature - Play Rough - Light Screen - Helping Hand - SnowscapeIt let me keep huge power so I was still doing descent damage, while being able to monitor the team and assist where needed.
I catch two shiny pokemon by now... The first one was a beautiful yellow Mudbray. The second one it's actually one of my favorite pokemons in this generation a gorgeous pink/red Pawmi. ❤Pd. I didn't save when I found a shiny Flittle and I lost him 😢
I've been playing a ton since day 1 and have only seen 5 shinies. That's crazy
My first shiny in this game was a shiny Iceque
I remember my first shiny in this game and it was a shiny Cetoddle that was just running around in the background while I was battling an Axew and I went: "Is that a shiny or is it just the lighting?" But thankfully it was a shiny and I named it Pearl :')
hey noki, just a tip about releasing pokemon, if you use pokemon home you can release multiple, i know it doesnt work for scarlet and violet yet but maybe it can be useful sometime
I found my first Scarlet shiny whilst watching this videoIt was a rufflet.
My first shiny in this game was also a Gen 8 shiny I didn’t have in Cufant. Now it’s a Copperajah that I somewhat wish I hadn’t evolved.
fuecoco is doing his best! and we love them for it!
Your enthusiasm is contagious! You make something so grueling sound so enjoyable. Ive never shiny hunted before but you make me want to start now
PLEASE MORE I LOVE THIS
Dude I hunted a magneton outbreak and got 2 shinies. Man Those we’re the coolest looking things to see in the wild.
I've gotten 2 shinies so far and they were within half an hour of each other. The first was a Rockruff, and I no joke had to cover my mouth to squeal because it was so late at night and I didn't want to wake up my neighbors. The second was a Phanpy I only noticed because it was in a group of Phanpy and one Donphan. Thank god for that and my good eyesight. Both were completely random without attempting to find anything
I got a random shiny Bombardier while trying to spawn a Gothitelle. Pretty sick.
This gives me so much motivation to hunt you have no idea.
This can be taken two waysThis gives me so much motivation to hunt, you have no ideaOrThis gives me so much motivation to hunt you, have no idea
gotta say, I have a soft spot for bronzong too, because it was my first shiny ever.
I was planning from the beginning to shiny hunt lokix, the grasshopper pokemon. I randomly ran into one without even looking for it specifically lmao
Bro the first full odds shiny I've ever caught was a male Salandit in scarlet after completing the game and playing for about 40 hours
My first shiny was Dondozo it was full odds witch sounds cool but my first shiny (dondozo) i found it when i already had beaten the story (didnt have shiny charm or sandwich boosts though) so my first shiny in this game was in end game i probably missed a ton cus my friend that hadnt played pokemon had caught 3 (he had given me 2 of them now witch was a bellibolt and a sawsbuck) and he kept his luxray but the worst thing really is that in his profile it said Shiny pokemon battled 6
Got recommended this vid, subscribed and binge watched a lot of your videos. Your storytelling is top tier dude! Makes the video extremely satisfying to watch. Good job!
Just shows how much room there is for growth.
If you don’t want to hatch the eggs for shinies you can go to profile and see how many shinies you have if the number increases that means one of those eggs are shiny hope this helps😊
Rookidee was actually my first too, got it probably like an hour or so. Was gonna use Talonflame as my main bird but I mean... c'mon...
I can’t believe I got a shiny finizen in 8 mins I’m so happy
You brought me to shiny hunting again and I wanted to thank you for that. I haven’t hunted since ultra sun and now I have already half a box full of Shinys. Thanks
Frosslass is one of my favorite Pokémon as well, I always name mine yuki😂
Funnly enough whilst watching this video right before you got your shiny flittle i got my first shiny gen 9 pokemon aswell, and it was its evolution espathra. So thankyou for that lol
My first shiny in scarlet was froslass. It was FIRST TRY in an outbreak.
If you have encounter power of a certain type to atleast lvl 2 if any Pokémon that spawn in an outbreak are not that typing (not including the ones in the outbreak) they are guaranteed to be shiny
I must be one of the 8 Froslass fans. Shes easily in my top 5 favorites of all time.
Dude, same here. Froslass is a must for me.
My first shiny was a froslass, got her on accident while farming an outbreak of her for xp.
Frosslass fan #6 reporting in. Amazing concept, amazing design, amazing cry, lame shiny though. Still a cool pokemon!
Game ist a month out and Nokimon already catches every shiny. 😅
So I had to look it up. Cause I got a ditto with the same name and I was wondering what are the odds. Apparently that’s ditto’s actual name in French, I think that’s neat that it keeps the region translated name.
Shiny hunts usually bore the heck out of me but the narration in this video and the sinistea video is on the next level, you do an amazing job of capturing the anticipation and excitement of shiny hunting
Sometimes I am in disbelieve. I am 180 hours in and have only 23 shinys. And most of them are hunted from outbreaks with herbs, just one hatched out of 3k eggs all with Masuda method…
