If you want to go Shiny Hunting, you will need to invest many hours into the game. However, there are some ways through which you will be able to help yourself by increasing the odds of the spawn rate of Shiny Pokemon.

As part of Shiny Hunting, the first thing you should know is that there is a very small chance of finding a Shiny Pokemon in the wild. In fact, the exact odds are one in 4,096. This means that for every 4,096 Pokemon spawn that you will come across, you can get only one Shiny Pokemon.

However, there are a couple of ways to increase the Shiny odds for your game, which are discussed below.

Use Mass Outbreaks in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

When a mass outbreak appears, make sure to take advantage of them by defeating a lot of Pokemon at once. This can be up to 30 Pokemon one after another. Repeat the process until the mass outbreak is over, and you will have tripled your chances of getting a Shiny.
