It just means that your old Melmetal has probably always been illegal, it`s just that PKHeX hasn`t been updated to deal with it. So you can use an old PKHeX, but only know that your Melmetal would still be illegal, even if it seems legal on an older version. Is Square Shiny just an 8-generation feature? Why is it legal? (or can it be like Pokémon in Pokémon Red that gets shiny when traded for gold/silver because of its PID?) Since the legality of GO is complicated and time-consuming, once you`ve made a legal Meltan and Melmetal, you shouldn`t do anything else that comes from GO. This would probably save you a lot of headaches. :3 Updated May 5, 2022 by Kim Dailey: With the addition of the Armor Island and Crown Tundra expansion passes, Pokémon Sword and Shield hold the most Pokémon with shining castles of any generation. Not to mention many legendary Shinies and other “illegals” that can be worn from Pokemon Home. With such a long list of brilliant restrictions, we`ve revisited this article to better highlight each shiny closed Pokémon and make sure you don`t waste extra time hunting where there isn`t any. Another Pokémon excluded from Shiny status is the Toxel, which is obtained at daycare on Route 5. A Pokémon breeder who is in kindergarten gives the player a Toxel that he hatched as a gift. This is great considering that the Gigantamax form of Toxtricity was released in February 2020, but it`s also sad because it can`t shine. Fortunately, there are other Toxels waiting to be caught.

Near the Master Dojo, players can come across an Alolan Diglett in front of a bridge. Once hit, the Diglett coach introduces himself and explains that his 150 Digletts have disappeared and that he needs help finding them all. Just like an epic Korok quest, players must hunt 150 Diglets to be regularly rewarded with rare Pokémon for their efforts. It`s a shame that all the Pokémon he gives are brilliant closed! Another specific exclusion from the shiny pool is the charmander Leon gives players when he returns to Postwick after becoming the new champion. This is a big disappointment for fans of brilliant beginners everywhere. Yet just because Leon`s Charmander gift is brilliantly sealed doesn`t mean a similar loophole to selection for brilliant Galalanian starters might not prove fruitful. But again, the same Melmetal appears perfectly legally in the previous version of PKHEX Also note that for your own raid (you are the host) this encounter is brilliantly locked if your number of badges (the level can be caught) is less than the level of the Mon you are encountering (before it is reduced). [Also, my GO transfer download, as well as my Shiny Living Dex download, legally has Melmetal brilliant] Well, to be fair, it wasn`t brilliant originally, but I got the mistake after clicking the star icon on Pkhex Referring to the part you had in parentheses: You are right and wrong: You are wrong in the sense that: PID is not a thing for gold/silver. What determines the brilliance are the DVs, and the DVs were kept when they were traded on RBY, which is why the same Mon, when traded to GSC, kept Shiness. In the sense that you are right: yes, PGD remains exactly the same. So it could be brilliant, depending on the PID it had in the first place.

The introduction of the Crown Tundra Expansion Pass brought a wealth of new content and Pokémon to catch. However, it also brought brilliant restrictions to nine individual Pokémon, all of which were legendary. Well, I don`t recommend creating Mons from scratch. Take a legal pk8 of a brilliant melmetal or use the GP1 method >LGPE >SWSH to get a legal pk8 generated by PKHeX. Someone traded me a brilliant Meltal and the OT is not from a website or .com and it says it is from Pokemon GO. So, is it legitimate? it is even possible to add a shiny Melmetal New PKHeX ball (LGPE vs GO->HOME) and the legality of the date for GO mons. That`s probably the problem you`re facing. You want to make a melmetal, then make sure that all the conditions are met. Type: Zero is an interesting creature introduced in Generation VII as a Gladion Pokémon that players would receive as a gift after becoming the champion. This type: Zero had the potential to be brilliant, while the one available in Sword and Shield is surprisingly bright locked. The bug is visible even after moving the green metal from the old Pkhex to the new Unfortunately, not all Pokémon are capable of being brilliant, especially in Pokémon Sword & Shield.

Some specific Pokémon, such as boxing legends and event Pokémon, are coded to never look brilliant, giving them the dreaded term “Shiny Locked.” How do you know which Pokémon you need to spend hours resetting with smoothly? In this guide, you`ll find a simple overview of all the Shining Sword and Shield Pokémon. Yes, Melmetal (non-glossy) can be obtained on just about any date, but Melmetal (brilliant) can only be obtained on certain dates. The brilliance of a non-glossy melmetal (with erroneous data, i.e. non-bright encounter data) therefore leads to an error of legality. [If the date on non-glossy Melmetal overlaps with a date where Meltan can be found brilliant, this will not result in a legality issue] While it`s true that Gen 8 divides Shinies into Square Shiny and Star Shiny, transfer methods (HOME, etc.) don`t limit Shinies from older games to either. In other words, any mons you transfer can be brilliant. No mistakes. Eternatus is another legendary Pokémon that has been brilliantly locked, although we hope that future games and events will see an unlocked release/appearance of the giant Pokémon. Players can find and catch Eternatus at the top of the powerhouse tower during the main story abyss. Brilliant Pokémon hunting is more popular than ever, perhaps even more popular as Pokemon Sword & Shield has the most successful launch of any Pokémon game. Players spent hours trying to find a soft reset, chain fishing, and Masuda egg culture for exactly the shiny Pokémon they`ve been dreaming of.

With the help of Pokemon Home, Trainers have been able to settle in Galar alongside many, if not all, of their friendly Pokémon over their generations of adventures. But unfortunately, several brilliant colleagues missed the Galar train. With Victini, which we`ve already talked about, here`s a list of other brilliant Pokémon home transfers. While it`s amazing to see Pikachu in all its glory, none of Gigantimax`s capable fan favorites are capable of being brilliant, as they are specially programmed Pokémon. They also cannot evolve, corresponding to the starters Pikachu and Eevee from the Let`s Go series. Unfortunately, the trio of Grookey, Sobble and Scorbunny from Sword and Shield have been programmed to never shine, which is the first opportunity Game Freak offers beginners Shinny-Locking for the opening game. All other Grookey, Sobble and Scorbunny obtained by reproduction have a regular chance to shine, except those Leon received at the beginning of the game in the player`s hometown, Postwick. Try this, try changing the date to one of the dates it was available as bright, and see if it works. I can try this one day, if I need more brilliant Melmetal LOL, maybe also look for the dates when Shiny Meltan events were put online? IDK if the data is archived here.
