Informed Today Influential Tomorrow


Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC’s new ‘Synchro Machine’ can lead to failed shinies, players warn

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s second wave of DLC, The Indigo Disk, released today (December 14), and although it’s generating a lot of excitement online, players are also warning others that the new ‘Synchro Machine’ feature could cause you to miss out on capturing ultra-rare shiny Pokémon.

For those unfamiliar, a shiny Pokémon is an exceedingly uncommon, sparkly variation of a Pokémon with an alternate color palette. They’re no stronger than the regular monsters, but their rarity (in Scarlet and Violet, the base odds of finding one are 1 in 4096) makes them incredibly exciting finds. And hey, who doesn’t want a silver Eevee or golden Magikarp?
