Bad news for shiny Victini hunters.

It can't be encountered shiny, it can exist as shiny because the sprite is just there just in case.

You can't get a legit shiny Victini.


Ugh. Thanks for the info Kaph.

That's a shame for a pretty cool looking shiny...

I summoned a baby to attract a lion. It didn't seem to work, so I tried a delicious baby.

Why give it a cool shiny and then make it unobtainable? if anything they should have not given it a shiny sprite so hacker would crash the game. Unless you plan to make it accesible in the future

He's the one who found the code stopping Mystery Gift Pokemon from being shiny when they're not always shiny.

That was found out quite a while ago. In Platinum methinks.

But Kaphotics knows what he is talking about. Apparently Reshiram and Zekrom too cannot be found shiny.

He tested the coding/process/whatever of the RNG himself. From what I understand, he tried to force Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem into shiny encounters. For the first three, the game never started the battle because of an infinite loop caused by the game's countermeasure against their being shiny ("if shiny, skip this PID"). For Kyurem and I presume other Pokemon, it worked every time.

You know, the almost complete lack of change in shiny Reshiram and Zekrom's colors makes me think that they really did just add them in as a safety, like ??? Arceus from last gen. They're not meant to be shiny unless of course they release a specifically-shiny Wondercard of them.

^It's much more dramatic when you see the animation. For example, the blue flashing on Zekrom is green instead. Don't know about Reshiram, haven't found a video of one.
