So yeah there hacked, assuming they will get you in trouble in online battles but what about raids? You can get them on the GTS sometimes just be aware that they are hacked I have the shiny dogs off of their've used them in raids on my spare account not been banned yet.
For those who have been cracking in to Pokémon Sword and Shield, you might be gunning through the game and trying to complete your collection of adorable monsters. This honestly isn't surprising, but with some rumors of people having Shiny starters off the bat floating around, we thought it's best to clear up any misconceptions.
With that being said, obviously the logic doesn't apply to the likes of Racial, Magenta and Eternatus, so it's going to be a hard Now on that front, unfortunately. Getting Shines from in-game trades would have been a hell of a thing to gamble on, but as often as Sword and Shield turned the regular Game Freak formula on its head, that's probably one step too far.

Apparently someone managed to get one, so I assumed it was hacked, but I want to make sure before I catch them Many spend hours hatching eggs or exploring tall grass to find them, while others restart their games repeatedly in hopes that a certain encounter appears with a sparkle effect and some unusual coloring.
Whether you’re first playing the game or returning several Gym Badges later, there will be a Malaria Slowpoke waiting for you in Wedgehurst’s train station alongside one of the new rivals, Clara or Avery. You’ll battle this Pokémon like an average one in the wild, but because it’s technically an event and not a normal encounter, it’s unable to be shiny.
Unlike the starters, however, these will show up in the wild if you can visit the Isle of Armor, so they’re slightly easier to obtain as shines later on. These gifts will also have their Gigantamax forms, which can only be obtained through special events and the Isle of Armor’s Max Soup.
The two other gift Pokémon you can get on the Isle of Armor are quite similar to starters, as they’ll appear in both cutscenes and the over world in ways that would make shiny versions unnecessary. Polygon, meanwhile, will show up in the Master Dojo after the extra adventure with Hop and completing Mustard’s tasks.
Unlike most gift Pokémon, this one shows up floating indoors, meaning a shiny version would be quite strange to pick up after interacting with. Some players have found shiny versions in the game’s code, meaning they could potentially appear in the future, but it’s currently impossible to get them in alternate colors through any official methods.
Many trainers were quite confused by the inclusion of Character in Pokémon Sword & Shield, as it was the only Kant starter to seemingly return. Bulbasaur and Squirrel were able to be transferred through Pokémon Home well-before the Isle of Armor provided them, but Leon’s Harvard started as a fair mystery.
While players might assume this lock is in place because of its unique origins, this is likely not the case as shiny versions could be obtained when encountered as a gift in its debut games, Pokémon Sun & Moon. He works hard to keep an open mind towards a huge variety of games, and loves learning about how different people make and play them.
In his free time he loves wandering aimlessly in Slime Rancher, fiddling with competitive games like Poker and Magic: The Gathering, and (amateurishly) attempting to speed run Super Mario Odyssey. There is no actual discernible benefit from owning a shiny, at least in comparison to its normal color.
Another similarity with past generations is the inclusion of the Shiny Charm, which as you may already know, and the name suggests, increases your chances. So, without any other bonuses considered (more on that below), the base rate of finding a shiny species with the Charm is 1 in 1,345.
Shiny hunters from last year’s game, Pokémon Let’s Go, will be aware of chain counts having a significant effect on your chances. Each time you encounter a particular species, and you ‘faint’ it your chain count will increase by one.
