Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Shiny Pokemon

Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet generally do not have stat differences compared to their regular counterparts when going by past games. These Pokemon do not have higher stats, and their appearance is entirely cosmetic. The Shiny variants of Pokemon are incredibly rare and take time and patience to find, so it is best to prepare yourself before beginning to search.
