Finding a shiny pokémon requires a lot of luck, so for this St. Patrick’s Day, I’m showing off my favorite shiny pokémon from each generation. Interesting note: most of these pokémon have been featured in my previous favorite pokémon lists.
Gen 1 – Kanto – Ponyta
How do you make one of my favorite pokémon of all time even better? Make it blue! Obtained? Yes.
Gen 2 – Johto – Umbreon
Same sentiments as above. Umbreon looks so slick with those blue rings. Obtained? Yes.
Gen 3 – Hoenn – Absol
Time to break up the blue now. Absol is a great looking pokémon and the reddish color in its shiny form is perfect. Obtained? No.
Gen 4 – Sinnoh – Lopunny
Lopunny is the perfect pokémon Easter bunny. I believe it was featured in an Easter event for Pokémon Go. Obtained? No.
Gen 5 – Unova – Zorua
Like umbreon, zorua has dark fur that contrasts really nicely with the bright blue. Obtained? No.
Gen 6 – Kalos – Sylveon
Shiny sylveon looks so good. I love the way it’s just a color swap (which is exactly what I predicted before the game dropped). Obtained? Yes.
Gen 7 – Alola – Rockruff
It’s a little blue puppy! Yeah, I like a lot of blue shinys. What can I say? It’s my favorite color. Obtained? No.
Gen 8 – Galar – Sobble
I really heckin love sobble. I made a shiny prediction for sobble before Sword and Shield came out, and I was pretty close. I got the pink right, but I didn’t change the blue shade of its body. Obtained? Yes.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Time to do some shiny hunting. What are your favorite shiny pokémon?
