I Found An Abyssal Grunt With A Shiny :(

Shouldn’t this be shiny locked?

Nothing is shiny locked aside from MGs, not even enemy trainer mons.

Wow, that was fast. Thanks

Good thing I’ve got my Swampert!

I am shiny locked indeed

There’s always pokepon…

Why again.


Some shinies are hardcoded to always be shiny. Who are you fighting?

I think that’s the case, it’s the tube challenge, and since there isn’t much info on the wiki about it, I wasn’t sure. But i just came across my 3rd shiny, so i have to believe that it’s locked, or else I’d have to believe I have the worst luck in the world. Still… it kills me ever time.

Tube challenge? Then yeah, pretty sure some of those are hardcoded
