Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC: All Shiny-Locked Pokemon

Every Pokemon game has certain Pokemon that cannot be Shiny. Here are all the Pokemon not Shiny in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s DLC.

One of the most exciting aspects of a new Pokemon game is trying to find the new Pokemon in Shiny form. These Pokemon are rare Pokemon that have a different color scheme and design than the original versions of the Pokemon.

These are Pokemon that players will never be able to get in their Shiny forms (at least not naturally in the game). Here’s a guide to the Shiny-locked Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet’s DLC.

What Are Shiny-Locked Pokemon?

Shiny-locked Pokemon are the Pokemon that The Pokemon Company specifically created to have no Shiny forms in their game. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t a Shiny version of the Pokemon, this just means that players cannot obtain a Shiny version of the Pokemon through legitimate means while playing their games. The majority of these Pokemon are the box-art legendaries that are well-known in the Pokemon world. For instance, Miraidon and Koraidon cannot be Shiny, no matter how hard you try.

In true Pokemon fashion, the major Pokemon in the DLC are Shiny-locked. This includes some pretty important Pokemon that you won’t be able to see their Shiny forms (at least not for a while). These Pokemon include The Loyal Three and the Sinnoh starters. Here’s a full list of these Pokemon.

  • Bloodmoon Ursaluna
  • Chimchar
  • Fezandipiti
  • Hisuian Growlithe
  • Munkidori
  • Okidogi
  • Ogerpon
  • Piplup
  • Turtwig

Will These Pokemon See Shiny Forms?

While some of these Pokemon already have Shiny forms (such as the Sinnoh starters and Hisuian Growlithe) others don’t have known Shiny forms as of now. The Pokemon that don’t have known Shiny forms are Bloodmoon Ursaluna, Fezandipiti, Munkidori, Okidogi, and Ogerpon. While these Pokemon may not have Shiny forms right now, chances are we will see their Shiny forms eventually. Shiny hunting is one of the most common activities in Pokemon. Considering there are very few Pokemon that don’t have Shiny forms, chances are we will see Shinies for most of these Pokemon.
