There are plenty of changes in the Pokemon formula on Legends Arceus, but the Shiny Charm is back to aid the patient shiny hunters!

Pokemon Legends Arceus presents a drastic departure from the classic RPG roots of the game. Fans of the series asked for this change since Sword and Shield.

Game Freak listened to this feedback and delivered a considerably different experience this time.

Pokemon Legends Arceus offers a much more open world. It brings some RPG elements like quests and turn-based battles, mixing them with action-adventure gameplay.

Fans are hyped about these changes, but many complain about the graphic quality of the title.

Even though players questioned its graphics, that is not stopping happy shiny hunters from diving into Hisui!

Completing Your Pokedex in Pokemon Legends Arceus

Completing your Pokedex is not an easy feat. This means you will have to complete at least ten research tasks for each Pokemon.

Since this is the first time humans are creating a Pokedex, you will need to catch several Pokemon of the same kind or interact with them under various circumstances to create their entry.

Only then, after completing 10 of these research tasks, the Pokedex entry for that particular Pokemon will unlock.

This process will take a long time, but the Shiny Charm is worth it if you plan to shiny hunt.
