USGamer has shared new information on how Shiny Pokemon work in the Wild Area of Pokemon Sword and Shield.
In the Wild Area, you encounter Pokemon in two different ways – low level Pokemon in the grass, and “very strong Pokemon” walking about in the Wild Area. These “very strong Pokemon” are 10 to 15 levels higher than you, and if you manage to defeat one, they will not allow themselves to be caught with a Poke Ball unless you have enough gym badges. This is similar to how high level Pokemon won’t obey you unless you have a certain number of gym badges.
We also learned that these “very strong Pokemon” aren’t random spawns and will always stay in a certain area, so if you come across a Shiny Pokemon that’s very strong, you can always go back to the same area later in the game. And as usual, Shiny Pokemon will also spawn in the grass.
