The 10 best shinies you should catch in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Shiny hunters around the world are trying to find little by little to get past the story of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl So they can come up with the real goal of the game: shiny hunting.

The game is a bit different from the latest mainline games, as starter Pokémon, Piplup, Chimchar, and Turtwig aren’t shiny locked. This means beginner Pokémon can be hunted, and when I heard that, the first thought I had was I’m going to buy both games so I can start hunting from scratch while I play. End game and over – another shiny hunt game.

So which shinies are the best from the Sinnoh region? That answer will vary depending on what kind of shiny hunter you’re talking to, but let me explain my philosophy when it comes to shiny hunting, so my choices may make sense.

First, I like a Pokémon that has the ability to change color in a big way. My least favorite shiny color is one that remains largely unchanged, even if it only enhances the Pokémon’s look a bit. I like bold changes and obvious color changes so you can immediately see that you’ve got a layer of shine, instead of having to wait for confirmation of those shiny sparkles.

Second, I like some pretty colors. Shiny green and bright yellow Pokémon are almost never on my favorites list, but you’ll see a lot of pink, purple, and blue on this list.

With that said, these are the best Sinnoh shinies you should catch in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

10. Lopunny

I mean, come on, it’s a pink and brown rabbit. Tell me it doesn’t remind you of a chocolate cupcake. Unlike its unresolved counterpart, Lopunny has more pink on it than Buneary, making it look like a strawberry chocolate chip treat.

9. Stunned

Stunky is just one of those Pokémon that very few trainers want to encounter. It’s an early-game Pokémon that has many different spawn locations, making it difficult to come across so many locations in the game. But, if you can catch it shiny, then you’re in for a treat. Its usual white and purple coat turns pink and yellow, a stark difference. This is a Pokémon that I can hunt by walking through the outside world instead of using the Masuda Method.

8. Honchkrow

Have you ever wondered what a bird and a cowboy would look like when merged? Honchkrow can also be found in some areas of the game, meaning trainers can come across it fairly easily just by walking around. It goes from a deep blue to a very bright and noticeable pink. It scratched both the color and the transformative itch for a shiny hunter like me.

7. Weavile

This shine turns a Pokémon I can’t bear to look at into one I can bear to look at. I can’t pinpoint exactly why I hate looking at the original Weavile, but for some reason I don’t like the look of this Pokémon. However, the shine makes it look less meaningful. How can something bright yellow and pink look scary?

6. Giratina

Look at the blue! This shine takes an already pretty Pokémon and turns its color lighter. The red accents on it turn blue and the white body turns pale yellow. That, along with the silver tip and black brakes makes it look pretty epic as a shiny thing.

5. Shinx

I know what you’re thinking, “but you said you hate yellow!” And yes, I do, but it’s not all of yellow, and it’s very clean with black on the butt. It only gets more epic as you go up its evolution sequence, but the yellow on the uncharacterized form of the real Pokémon is just too striking and different.

4. Drifloon

Look, it’s yellow. Drifloon is an exception to the rule that all yellow shinies look stupid. The blue on its face and feet is what really does it for me. The combination of the two and the fact that it has a slight white bulge on top just makes me want to hunt it down for both Pokémon evolution.

3. Spiritomb

While the original Spiritomb version looked pretty spooky and Halloween themed, I really think the shiny version is what the original should look like. There’s just something amazing about a clear blue face with purple orbs, eyes and mouth. Plus, I love the color.

2. Cresselia

This Legend’s shiny form is as legendary as the Pokémon itself. It won’t be an easy-to-hunt shiny thing as players will need to save up just before encountering and then restart their game gently to catch it multiple times, but it’s well worth it because of how beautiful the luster is.

1. Pachirisu

This is a Pokémon that looks good in its original form but also looks good in its shiny form. It was the Shinnoh region’s top shine on many people’s lists, including pretty much every friend I asked about. It’s a very simple change, from light blue to pink accents, but that’s what I like about it. While it’s not the first Pokémon I’ve hunted in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, it’s definitely near the top of my list.
