Of primary importance to all good Trainers should be tracking down the Shiny Pokémon, and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl will be no different. Being the rarest Pokémon, they also act as prestige items and everyone wants to catch the Shiny version of their favorite Pokémon.
Bright odds have also changed a lot over the years, so people may be a little more used to the new systems and may have forgotten the odds for these remakes. For Brilliant Diamon and Shining Pearl, there should be Shiny odds of 1 in 4096 for wild encounters.
Where the odds of Shiny in Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl become very interesting is when it comes to defeating Pokémon in the wild. As you get through different ranges of losses or captures, it should become easier to find a Shiny. Below, you can find the older values and we will confirm them as quickly as possible once we get our hands on the game.
- 50 defeats / captures - 1/2048
- 100 defeats / captures - 1/1365
- 200 defeats / captures - 1/1024
- 500 defeats / captures - 1/683
The Poke Radar will also help find Shiny Pokemon, as it will lead them to any Shiny that appears in the areas they are exploring, which is great.
