One of the exciting things in the Pokemon experience is catching the very rare "Shiny Pokemon". It is confirmed that in "Pokemon Sun and Moon", that the Shiny Pokemon will be appearing in the wild.

Techniques to catch the Shiny Pokemon

A "Shiny Pokemon" is a normal-looking Pokemon when it comes to physical appearance and when in Pokemon battles however what makes this special is its alternate color of the Pokemon. Example, instead of the blue-skinned Gyrados, you might encounter one with color red skin in the "Pokemon Sun and Moon" especially after the player successfully finishes the game's quest.

WWG reports that "Chaining" is one of the effective techniques to discover and catch these special Pokemon. The "Chaining" technique is also applicable in the "Pokemon Sun and Moon" but with one condition the Pokemon has to "cry for help" during battles in order for the second wild Pokemon to appear.

First mythical Pokemon announced

By consecutively excetuting the "cry for help" technique in the same Pokemon battle in "Pokemon Sun and Moon", it will increase the chances of the "Shiny Pokemon" to appear. The "Shiny Pokemon" that will appear might have "superior IVs and Hidden abilities".
