30 Best Shiny Pokémon in 2021 (RANKED)

A Shiny Pokémon is a specific Pokémon with different coloration to what is usual for its species. It is one of the many differences that a Pokémon can have within its species. They were originally called rare in the debug menu from Pokémon Gold and Silver, Color Pokémon in Pokémon Stadium 2, and are also referred to as Alt. Color in the Generation III easy chat system. The Shining Pokémon from the Trading Card Game were also introduced before the word “Shiny” was officially used in Pokémon games. In today’s article, we at Fiction Horizon have decided to focus on this group of Pokémon.

The list we decided to compose today is going to contain a list of the 30 best Shiny Pokémon as of 2021. Since Shiny Pokémon are completely identical to their base forms, this list is not going to be based on any stats, but rather on the looks of the Pokémon in question. It’s basically going to be a list of the 30 best-looking Shiny Pokémon and here is who we think is the most handsome!

30 Best Shiny Pokémon

30. Mimikyu

Generation: VII
Types: Ghost / Fairy
Evolutions: None

Very little is known about Mimikyu’s true appearance, as it is constantly hiding under a rag reminiscent of a Pikachu. Only his eyes peeked out through two slits. Mimikyu can actively influence the appearance of the sheet it is wearing. A kind of branch serves as the tail of the Pikachu disguise.

If Mimikyu has been attacked and its disguise is exposed, the “head” of the Pikachu disguise will snap off. Mimikyu leads a lonely life in dark, dilapidated places like the Abandoned Shop in Alola. This is mainly due to the fact that they are very sensitive to light and therefore have to stay in very dark places and cover themselves with a costumed sheet so that no sunlight affects their health.

However, it is actually not a solitary Pokémon, but rather sociable and peaceful, and longs for friends. Over time, this has brought him a delusional hatred of the popular Pokémon Pikachu, whose popularity it is envious of. It therefore does everything to harm Pikachu, but at the same time to assimilate to him. Through ghostly powers, it can actively influence the appearance of its costume sheet and, for example, make patterns appear that look like facial features.

It prefers Pikachu as it has envied its popularity since a large number of merchandise appeared 20 years ago. By mimicking its looks, it hopes to make friends with other people and Pokémon more easily. Its sheet is worth a lot to him, so it cries bitter tears when it tears, and mends it all night long before it pursues the culprit vengefully.

Mimikyu’s true appearance is considered utterly terrible. It is rumored in the Alola region that if people see under Mimikyu’s rag disguise, they will become infected with a mysterious disease. Allegedly, the only person who saw Mimikyu’s true appearance through a gust of wind died instantly and from an excruciating death at that. Because of this rumor and his fierce defense when someone tries to peek under their sheets, nothing is known about their true appearance.

29. Inteleon

Generation: VIII
Types: Water
Evolutions: Sobble –> Drizzile –> Inteleon

Inteleon is a roughly human-sized, reptile-like Pokémon. Its very slender, supple body is colored light and dark blue, his legs and hands are black. The angular, white spot on his stomach and the black elements give him a pattern that is reminiscent of an icon.

Its very long and strong, light blue and pointed tail, which is longer than its entire body, and the yellow crest on the back of its head, which merges into a membrane that hangs loosely on the back, are striking. Its fingers are exceptionally long and slender. Inteleon’s body is full of surprises: it hides a sharp blade in its tail and has special lenses in the nictitating skin in the eye that give it excellent eyesight.

Inteleon is considered a very intelligent Pokémon. They are also considered to be prudent and calmly think about things before making decisions. It is absolutely loyal to trainers who gain its recognition. The secret agent Pokémon uses its cunning in sophisticated combat strategies. It is known for its ability to compress water in its skinny fingers and then fire it at Mach 3 like pistol shots.

Its excellent eyesight gives it a high level of precision. This is reflected in his special attack, Precision Shot, which ignores attack-distracting abilities and also has an increased direct hit rate. Inteleon analyzes the weaknesses of its enemies and then strikes effectively. If it is forced into close combat, the blade hidden in its tail is used for attacks such as aqua penetration.

It can even sail through the air with the membrane on its back. Inteleon shares the standard ability with the other water starters. If a Pokémon with a torrent has only a few power points left, the strength of its water attacks increases by 50 percent. Rarer specimens can have the super marksman hidden ability, which increases the strength of the attack even more than regular direct hits.

Like all Water Starter Pokémon, with enough affection, it is able to learn a very special combo attack. In addition, as a fully evolved water starter, with enough affection it can master the aqua hood attack, the water variant of the Hyper Beam.

28. Lilligant

Generation: V
Types: Grass
Evolutions: Petilil –> Lilligant

Lilligant is a 1.1 meter tall Flower Pokémon with a large red flower on its head that has a white pattern on the petals. In the middle of this flower, Lilligant wears a kind of golden crown with red tips. It has dark green leaves beneath the flower, light green leaves below. One of those bright green leaves, on the back of his head, is about the length of his body and very much like a woman’s hair.

The other two light green leaves hang loosely down the front of the head. Its face and stomach area are white, and the Pokémon’s eyes are reddish. It has two leaf-like arms and a golden sepal under its neck. She wears a large, light green, tulip-shaped dress with two long, dark green leaves sticking out at the back. Its four gold-colored feet resemble dance shoes.

In addition to some status attacks, Lilligant only learns special attacks by leveling up. With the exception of the Bug-type quiver dance, all of ist attacks are exclusively Grass or Normal. Lilligant mainly uses dance attacks, for example leaf dance or tumble dance.

Lilligant also has the ability chlorophyll, which doubles its initiative in the sunshine, and pacemaker, which prevents Lilligant from becoming confused during attacks such as leaf dance. Her Hidden Ability is Flora Shield, which protects it from status changes such as poisoning or burning when the sun is shining.

Not much is known about the habitat of wild Lilligant, as they are very rarely seen in the wild. It is often in the care of a trainer, and Lilligant is particularly popular with celebrities. His beautiful flower arrangement is his trademark.

These floral arrangements give off a scent that is very calming and that depends on the soil on which it grows. In order to bloom rather than wither, bloom requires immense care, and many Pokémon trainers struggle to take good care of Lilligant. A wildly grown Lilligant will always surpass this beauty.

27. Primarina

Generation: VII
Types: Water / Fairy
Evolutions: Popplio –> Brionne –> Primarina

Primarina is an elegant Pokémon with a slim, seal-like body. Its rear half consists of a dark blue tail, which ends in large, white caudal fins. The front half is white. Primarina rests on wide, white forefins. Its narrow, elongated head has a pink nose. Its light blue, long hair, which is held together by pearl-like or bubble-like structures, is striking.

However, if Primarina uses the foam serenade attack, these pearls disappear and you can see its hair in all its glory. Primarina’s body is also covered with various pink decorative elements such as starfish and thorns.

Primarina live in large colonies with their conspecifics who linger on sea beaches. The songs they sing appear in very many variations, which affect the movements of the water bubbles in different ways. It is said that each colony works out its own songs. The glittering reflections that the moonlight causes on the bubbles, as well as the Primarina that direct their colonies, are an almost magical sight that is very popular with the residents of Alola.

It is also known as the “prima donna”. Its forays also look like performances in which it kills its prey with graceful dance and song. Primarina relies heavily on its voice. If it injures itself in the mouth or dries it out and strains its voice, it becomes defenseless and can be exposed to great threats. Primarina trainers therefore deal intensively with the care of their vocal cords.

26. Mega Blaziken

Generation: III
Types: Fire / Fighting
Evolutions: Torchic –> Combusken –> Blaziken –> Mega Blaziken

Blaziken is a medium-sized, two-legged, chicken-like Pokémon that is wrapped in a mainly red-colored plumage. On the other hand, an area on the chest and the lower parts of the legs are yellow. The heat that his body radiates ensures that his plumage burns and renews itself every few years, whereby soft, new feathers take the place of the old ones.

The Fire / Fighting Pokémon has a very slim, athletic body structure. The arms are narrow, muscular, and light brown in color. The hands consist of three thick fingers with short claws. When Blaziken is active, hot flames blaze from its wrists. In contrast to the arms, the legs are very broad and massive and the short, pointed claws can just be guessed at their ends. A short tail grows at the back of the big fire Pokémon.

The most striking visual feature is the distinctive beige-colored feather comb, which surrounds Blaziken’s chest area and the back of the head, and which protrudes backwards in large foothills. Two long, pointed horns grow above the nose and the mouth has sharp ends. The eyes are made up of yellow dermis, blue irises, and black pupils.

By using a Blazikenite, the Pokémon is able to go through a Mega Evolution. In doing so, its external appearance changes in some points. There are now black flame patterns on the legs and in the chest area and two very long, narrow flames are burning from each wrist.

The feather comb is shorter than normal and now points upwards, the rest of the beige-colored plume that surrounds the upper body is more conspicuous and concise. The horn on the forehead is curved upwards. Blaziken is a stubborn Pokémon. Flames are ejected from his wrists, and the stronger the enemy the stronger they are.

25. Coalossal

Generation: VIII
Types: Rock / Fire
Evolutions: Rolycoly –> Carkol –> Coalossal

Coalossal is a Rock and Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Genertion VIII. It evolves from Carkol, which in turn evolves from Rolycoly. Coalossal is a big, beefy Pokémon. Its strong body consists of dark brown rocks and is supported by two sturdy legs that are reinforced with claws made of coal. His equally strong arms are crowned on the shoulders by tapering rocks, between which the coal Pokémon has piled a large pile of glowing coals.

In its Shiny version, its body is colored metallic blue.

Coalossal’s interior resembles a furnace in which it burns coal and thus reaches temperatures of up to 1,500 °C. This is also alluded to by the Steam Engine ability, which is the special ability of his evolutionary line. The hot, glowing interior of its mouth gives it a threatening appearance, but it is usually considered peaceful.

However, it reacts extremely aggressively to destructive intruders in mine shafts, which represent its habitat; then the coal flares up hot and it spits glowing sparks to make attackers flee or beat them with great physical strength.

Special specimens can change their shape and achieve the Gigantimax form. They grow into gigantic blast furnaces, from the inside of which hot air whose temperature reaches 2,000 °C escapes, while gigantic pointed rock spikes sprout from its shoulders. His Rock attacks are transformed into his special attack attack, in which a gigantic, glowing boulder falls down on his opponent, causing him damage and weakening him further in the following rounds.

There is an old legend in Galar that tells that Gigantamax Coalossal once saved countless lives when it was a huge furnace that gave off warmth in a cold wave.

24. Entei

Generation: II
Types: Fire
Evolutions: None

For reasons of admiration and as a token of friendship between humans and Pokémon, the residents of Ecruteak City at the time erected two large wooden towers around 700 years before the events of the Johto story. The tower in the west of the city was named the Bronze Tower and was used to worship Lugia, while the one in the east was called the Tin Tower (later a bell tower) and served as a sanctuary for Ho-Oh.

Not only the residents of the city climbed the tops of both towers to communicate with and pay homage to the Legendary Bird Pokémon that used these towers as landing sites. But 550 years later, the Bronze Tower was ignited by a lightning strike for reasons unknown until now and burned for three days until the fire could only be extinguished by a heavy downpour.

Lugia fled on the occasion of the fire and left the city forever in the direction of the Whirlpool Islands, while inside the tower three Pokémon, which were then still nameless, lost their lives – among them Entei. Historical research suggests that this trio was responsible for the fire because, according to the population, they could not keep their forces in check, but this theory could never really be proven historically.

Ho-Oh then descended from the sky and breathed new life into the three Pokémon with the help of his powers, which since those days have been referred to by humans as Entei, Raikou, and Suicune. But the residents of Ecruteak City feared them and their new power and tried to strike them down with force

But the three Pokémon did not defend themselves and, deeply disappointed by the hostility and cruelty of mankind, left the scene in three different directions. An old legend has it that they will show up again when they find their faith in humanity again. Since then, the trio has roamed the country separately from one another. According to rumors, the three should meet at irregular intervals in the depths of the tower ruins.

According to an ancient legend, Entei was born in a volcanic eruption and causes conflagrations that extinguish everything that comes in contact with them. In every new volcano in the world, an Entei is said to be born. How this legend can be reconciled with the legend from Ecruteak City is still unclear, as there is too little reliable scientific data about Entei.

If it roars, a volcano is supposed to erupt somewhere in the world. Entei has the passion of magma and since it cannot restrain its strength, it roams restlessly through the country. The flames of these muscular Pokémon are hotter than molten magma.

As a Legendary Pokémon, Entei has no special habitat. In most games, it roams restlessly through the country and only meets the player by chance. Nevertheless, it has a special relationship to the ruined tower in Teak City and to volcanoes in general. Since it is a Legendary Pokémon, its behavior is almost completely unexplored and almost all known data about it comes from old legends.

23. Regigigas

Generation: IV
Types: Normal
Evolutions: None

Regigigas is a Normal-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It is the leader of the Legendary Giants, a legendary group consisting of Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Regieleki and Regidrago. Regigigas is a very large, two-legged, golem-like Pokémon that appears in black, white, yellow, and green. The majority of its body is white, with some symmetrical, thick stripes of black color covering the entire white body surface.

The inner surfaces of the hands are also black. The areas around the wrists and shoulders as well as his face are colored yellow. Ultimately, the segments between the shoulders and face are green, the same goes for the feet.

The normal Pokémon has an extremely broad stature, especially the chest and stomach areas. It does not have a head in the strict sense of the word, but its face begins roughly at the back of the upper body and runs as an elongated structure to around the lower third of the abdomen. Seven small, round and black eyes can be seen. Four eyes form a square and three more run down in a row.

Next to the face you can see three balls in a vertical row. The upper ones are colored red, the middle ones blue and the lower ones gray. The face is framed on the shoulders by two structures that resemble simple bushes.

The shoulders themselves are made up of relatively large, round pieces. The same shape can be found on the wrists. From each of these three big fingers grow. The strong legs merge into the feet, which, like the pieces on the shoulders, resemble bushes.

In its Shiny form, the white areas are slightly bluish and the yellow parts of the body are dark blue.

22. Mega Gardevoir 

Generation: III
Types: Fairy
Evolutions: Ralts –> Kirlia –> Gardevoir –> Mega Gardevoir

Gardevoir is a medium-sized, humanoid Pokémon. The face, neck, chest and the outside of its veil-like structures around the abdomen and legs are white, the inside of the body parts just mentioned, the majority of its head and arms are green. The Psychic / Fairy Pokémon has a slim body and a relatively large head. The area on the head resembles a hairstyle.

All that can be seen of its face are the large eyes, which are composed of white leather skin, red irises and black, narrow pupils. Long, thin arms grow on the side of the small torso. A broad, flat, red-colored horn runs through the back and chest. The lower abdomen resembles the lower part of a long dress and the narrow legs are not always visible.

Gardevoir is characterized by powerful special powers, but a delicate, fragile body. This ensures that it cannot learn a single physical attack on a regular basis. However, the Psychic / Fairy Pokémon has powerful, mysterious powers, which it pours into strong special attacks such as psychokinesis or dream eater of the Psychic-type or moon power of the Fairy-type.

In addition, as is usual with other Psycho-Pokémon, it has a variety of status attacks that demonstrate its artistic abilities. One specialty is teleport, which it can use to move over long distances. The Hug Pokémon lovingly takes care of its friends, whom it can support with a variety of healing attacks such as wishful dreams, healing waves or healing offerings or shield them from enemies with a reflector.

It is said that Gardevoir can see into the future. Most specimens have the ability to capture, which copies the ability of the opponent, or synchronise, which transmits status changes such as paralysis to the opponent. Both are related to the alignment of Gardevoir and his counterpart. Some Gardevoir also have the hidden ability Telepathy, with which it recognizes the intentions of fellow combatants and can thus avoid their attacks.

Little is known about Gardevoir’s habitat, as it rarely appears as a wild Pokémon. There have been sightings of Gardevoir, who live together with Ralts and Kirlia in small family groups and travel around by teleport. Although it has feminine features, there are just as many male as female specimens. Its psychokinetic powers allow it to float and predict the future.

Gardevoir is known for risking its own life for its beloved trainer. The Hugging Pokémon reaches the peak of its powers when it senses danger for its trainer and can even distort dimensions and create black holes. It is considered an extremely brave Pokémon.

21. Whimsicott

Generation: V
Types: Grass / Fairy
Evolutions: Cottonee –> Whimsicott

Like Cottonee, Whimsicott consists largely of a kind of white wool ball that makes up his entire body. In Whimsicott, however, the wool indicates hair. A small, graceful, brown body is visible in front of and under the hair, which is approx. 70 cm tall with the hair. The arms and legs consist of triangular shapes, but these are only faintly indicated.

The Pokémon’s head is round and about the same size as the rest of the body, including the legs. Like its predevelopment, it has amber-colored eyes that are in the middle of the head. Where the ears should have been, you can see two green, curled tendrils on Whimsicott. There is also wool on his neck.

Whimsicott is not particularly strong, but knows how to protect itself, for example with a cotton wool shield. It also masters strong status attacs that can hurt other Pokémon. It can also use different attacks to restore its energy. After creating a sunny day, it can make better use of the powerful solar beam attack. At critical times, it takes advantage of the emergency situation or attacks with a razor blade or fairy breeze.

His rascal ability ensures that Whimsicott always attacks the enemy first before it attacks. It can also bypass shields through its other ability to hover. In sunny weather, the chlorophyll ensures that it is faster.

Like its predevelopment, Whimsicott lives mainly in forests and grassy areas. It is able to manipulate its body in order to get through any kind of crack, however narrow it may be. This is used to leave tufts of wool in certain places and to annoy people and other Pokémon and play pranks on them.

20. Mega Altaria

Generation: III
Types: Dragon / Fairy
Evolutions: Swablu –> Altaria –> Mega Altaria

Mega Altaria has a larger cloud-like plumage with a large, fluffy mass extending from its back. The feathers grew to protect themselves and shine brightly. Its cotton wool-like wings are lighter than in its basic form, and its blue belly is now exposed.

Additional fluff surrounds her neck like a necklace, the head is adorned with a coat of arms in the form of a hat. A single small feather ripples on his forehead, but his features are unchanged. Its tail feathers became a long wavy streamer with three longer central feathers.

Mega Altaria’s singing voice is even more beautiful than that of her regular form. Known for their sociable personality, they are not shy.

19. Haxorus

Generation: V
Types: Dragon
Evolutions: Axew –> Fraxure –> Haxorus

Haxorus is a Dragon-type Pokémon and has been around since Generation V of the video game series. It represents the last stage of evolution of Axew and Fraxure.

The ax-jaw Pokémon Haxorus is a 1.8 meter tall, 105.5 kilogram heavy, two-legged Pokémon, which is mostly yellow-green in color. The chest, inside of the legs and the tip of the tail are all black. The entire body is covered in large and small scales. Perhaps the most striking features of this Pokémon are the two blade-shaped, indestructible tusks that grow out of its mouth.

The blade itself is black, like the mouth, while the cutting edge is dark red. They are drawn back and are longer than the small head. The small eyes are colored red and have a black pupil. The mouth has no teeth other than the two blades and is more like a beak. The head sits on a relatively long neck, which is covered with sturdy protective plates.

The arms are quite thin and have ball-like joints. Haxorus’ claws consist of three small red claws. The legs are very strong and end in clawed feet. These three claws are also red, but the toes are extremely long. The very strong tail is more than half his body size.

In the iridescent form, Haxorus has black scales instead of the normally yellow-green scales.

Very little is known about Haxorus ‘ preferred habitats, but it appears to have large territories that it defends from conspecifics. It mercilessly fights such a fight in order not to lose its own territory. It is always protected from enemy attacks by its hard shell. However, when there is no such intruder and he does not have to fight, his mind is very peaceful. Its two sharp axes on the jaw are unbreakable and can easily destroy even the strongest steel plates.

18. Chandelure

Generation: V
Types: Ghost / Fire
Evolutions: Litwick –> Lampent –> Chandelure

Chandelure is a white, 1 meter tall and 34.3 kg heavy chandelier. Above the head, it gives off a violet flame. There are several black, vertical stripes on the head as well as a horizontal one that connects the two yellow eyes. These have a black border.

The two black arms protrude from the black extension, each carrying two black candlesticks. A purple flame shines on each of them.

Every form of life that gets caught in the fire has its soul stolen until only a lifeless shell remains, which buzzes through the world forever. The victims are hypnotized with the arms, the soul is sucked out and finally, the body is burned. Chandelure lives in gloomy areas such as mansions, caves, or mountains.

17. Ponyta

Generation: I
Types: Fire
Evolutions: Ponyta –> Rapidash

Ponyta is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It can evolve into Rapidash. As of Generation VIII, it has had a regional form called Galarian Ponyta, which belongs to the Psychic type.

Ponyta is a medium-sized, four-legged and horse-like Pokémon with beige fur. The Fire.type Pokémon has a slim build and an elongated head with triangular ears and large, dark button eyes. Characteristic is his magnificent, orange-red glowing mane of flame, which runs through Ponyta’s back to his tail; the flames also blaze on the hoofed legs.

In its Shiny form, Ponyta has a greyish mane of flame in Generation II. That changed in Generation III, as of which the mane, the tail and the flames on the fore and hind legs are blue and the body is a little paler.

Ponyta loves open grasslands and is at home in the meadows and fields, especially in the Kanto and Johto regions. But it also likes to graze on mountain slopes. At birth it is weak and can hardly stand up alone. But after just a few hours, his mane of flame is glowing hot. Ponyta struggles to get up when it falls, growing stronger as it tries to keep up with its parents.

After all, as he grows up and races with his friends, his legs become so strong that he develops incredible jumping power; continually jumping over tall grass has made him an excellent jumper. Thanks to his enormous jumping power, Ponyta could even jump over the Eiffel Tower.

It absorbs the force of the landing with its hooves, which are ten times harder than diamonds. It lashes out with its hind legs and those hard hooves when it feels something behind it.

In battles, the Fire-type Pokémon makes use of its flame mane for powerful physical attacks such as flame lightning, or it can burn its opponent by touching it. It can actively influence the intensity with which the flames’ blaze. When a trainer wins their trust, they even allow their mane to be touched without getting burned.

16. Zacian

Generation: VIII
Types: Fairy
Evolutions: Zacian (Hero of Many Battles) –> Zacian (Crowned Sword)

In its Hero of Many Battles form, Zacian is a large cyan wolf-like Pokemon with yellow eyes, a pink tail, and pink braids that run down its length. There are two fringes of pink fur on the back. Battle scars are visible on the sides and part of the left ear is missing.

According to legend, Zacian is either the older sister or the rival of Zamazenta. It is also referred to as the Fairy King’s Sword by friends and foes alike because it is capable of knocking everything down with one blow. It can turn into a statue for sleeping until needed and is seaworthy.

With Zamazenta, it can nullify the power of Eternatus, even in his Eternamax state. It can change shape when the metal particles are absorbed by the soil. It can also create illusions during sleep, including a projection of itself.

Zacian can attack so gracefully that the moves can captivate his opponents, which has been compared to a graceful dance.

15. Reshiram

Generation: V
Types: Dragon / Fire
Evolutions: None

Reshiram, the white dragon, strived for reality and a new world that would lead mankind to clarity and happiness. In Reshiram, therefore, truth, reality, and clarity materialize. This makes it the counterpart to the black dragon Zekrom, which in turn materializes desire, dream, and fiction.

Reshiram has the power to incinerate the world with its flames by stirring up fire with its tail. If the fire flares up in its tail, the heat stirs the earth’s atmosphere and the world climate changes. It is intended to help everyone who strives for a world of reality.

Reshiram joined the older twin and Zekrom the younger twin, the founders of Unova, and the first great fratricidal war broke out in the region. Since the two dragons were originally one, the fight raged back and forth, but a decision was not in sight and eventually, the two got tired. The twin heroes also realized at some point that not just one of them could be right, and so the conflict was resolved after a long period of struggle.

Years of peace followed and the devastated Unova region was rebuilt. The sons of the heroes dug up the hatchet after the death of their fathers. Following an outburst of anger, Zekrom and Reshiram then destroyed Unova with flames and lightning bolts. The Pokémon that created this land would never have done anything like this of their own free will. Out of disappointment with humanity, the two dragons dematerialized and took the form of two stones.

Zekrom slumbers in an ancient artifact known as the Dark Stone. The stone in which Reshiram rests is called the Light Stone. Both wait in this petrified form for a hero of pure heart who wants to change the world. If his ideals correspond to theirs and if they recognize him as a hero, the dragons appear to him in their original form and loyally stand by him.

But in the past millennia, neither Zekrom nor Reshiram appeared to find such a hero, so that their two stones rested on the top of Dragonspiral Tower, in a temple built over 2500 years ago, which is now known only as the Old Palace.

The existence and storage places of the stones, as well as the method of the resurrection of the Legendary Pokémon, has been forgotten more and more over the years. Only the residents of Opelucid City, who worship Dragon Pokémon, have passed this old legend on from generation to generation.

The existence of Kyurem, however, was almost completely forgotten and even the residents of Opelucid City doubted the existence of this Pokémon until the events in Black 2 and White 2. So far, it is only known that Kyurem can absorb one of the two Dragon Pokémon again and reassume part of the original shape of the original dragon.

Kyurem transforms Zekrom / Reshiram into its stone form and absorbs it through its wing-like extensions on the back. However, how the perfect original dragon can emerge from all three dragon Pokémon is still unknown.

14. Camerupt

Generation: III
Types: Fire / Ground
Evolutions: Numel –> Camerupt

Camerupt’s body color is red, there are three blue circles each on the left and right side. It has a gray snout, dark gray hooves and three tufts of hair grow on its head. With its two gray volcanoes in the form of humps, the Pokémon is reminiscent of a trample.

Glowing hot Magma flows in his body, which erupts every ten years when Camerupt gets very angry. Camerupt is a slow Pokémon, but one that is distinguished by its strength. It masters both special and physical attacks and attacks its opponents mainly with fire attacks, such as eruptions or flying sparks, by hitting them with magma from its hump or bursting fire bubbles.

However, the outbreak Pokémon can also learn attacks from other types, and thus create earthquakes, for example, or use its high weight through the use of Body Slam to ram the opponent with full force. By throwing enemies into mountain crevices, it can also defeat them in one fell swoop using the fissure knockout attack.

The camel Pokémon can have the Drowsiness ability, which prevents it from falling into an attraction state, or alternatively the Fickleness ability. The latter doubles the effect of status value changes. Rare specimens have the Pacemaker hidden ability, which protects them from confusion. In its mega form, it has the ability Brute Force, which reflects its enormous strength and its attacks, if they have an additional effect, amplifies, but dispenses with this.

Camerupt is a tough Pokémon that lives in the mountains and craters of volcanoes. In the hump of his body, one can find simmering hot magma, which can reach temperatures of up to 10,000 degrees. This hump was created from a transformation of its bones and resembles a volcano.

Every ten years, or when the Pokémon is very angry, the hump breaks and spits out the hot magma. These eruptions in his body are preoccupying some researchers.

In its Mega form, the two volcanoes on the back form one large once again. This is surrounded by dark gray stones. The fur takes on a cone-like shape, which makes it look like an extension of the volcano. A dark-gray ornament in the form of the letter ‘M’ can be seen between the eyes.

13. Sableye

Generation: III
Types: Dark / Ghost
Evolutions: None

Sableye is a small, two-legged Pokémon that appears as purple, red, and blue. Most of the body is purple. However, a small stone can be seen on its chest as well as on its back. The front one is red, the rear one blue. The head is relatively large and the most noticeable feature is probably the large eyes, which are actually two white diamonds.

The face is marked with a very thin line that runs vertically right down the middle. The wide mouth reveals the pointed teeth when open and the pointed ears grow on the sides of the head. The narrow arms are equipped with three short, pointed fingers on the hands. The body itself is narrowly built.

As mentioned, there are two stones attached to the body, which come from its diet. The Dark / Ghost-type Pokémon stands on two narrow legs, which also have three short, pointed toes on their feet.

With the help of a Sablenite, the Pokémon can perform a Mega Evolution. In doing so, its appearance changes slightly, and it now weighs around 15 times more than normal. But this is mainly due to the fact that it is holding a magenta-colored gemstone in front of it, which is slightly larger than the Pokémon itself.

Mega Sableye has slightly longer ears and a narrow horn grows in the center of the head. Furthermore, its eyes are now magenta and a little wider. Several small stones of various shapes and sizes grow on the back. They are blue, green and red.

Wild Sableye live deep inside dark caves, where they lead a very secluded, leisurely life far from human disturbance. The Darkness Pokémon uses its sharp claws to constantly dig new branches in its gloomy home in order to get to its rare food, which consists of valuable gem crystals. The substances contained in these eventually reach the surface of the body and form crystal structures on it.

Its precious stone eyes sparkle like fragments of jewelry in the slightest incidence of light and are feared. It is said that it steals the souls of people who see this sparkle. Sableye’s ‘love of gemstones leads it to chase after Carbink, who also live in rocky caves. It competes with Gabite, who shares these preferences.

12. Sylveon

Generation: VI
Types: Fairy
Evolutions: Eevee –> Sylveon

Sylveon is a four-legged Pokémon whose body is predominantly covered with pale, cream-colored fur. Its feet, ears and tail are pink in color. Its left ear and neck are adorned with pink and cream-colored bows with antennae. These antennae are also cream and pink in color, but are dark and light blue at the ends.

It has short, slender legs and small paws with three toes visible on each foot. It eyes are blue with white pupils. When his mouth is open, two pointed teeth appear in his upper jaw. Its furry, pink tail is slightly curved in the shape of a moon.

Although it knows many attacks, it is actually one of the more peace-loving Pokémon, which suggests its bond category. By moving its ribbon-shaped antennae through the air, it can appease its opponents and induce them to end a fight prematurely. If these feelers wrap around the arm of his trainer, Sylveon would like to go for a walk.

In contrast to its predevelopment Eevee, Sylveon learns offensive fairy attacks, such as fairy breeze and moon violence. But with its Hidden Ability Fairy Layer, even normal attacks become Fairy-type, which makes this Pokémon even stronger. Sylveon is rarely found in the wild and is more commonly found in urban areas under the care of humans.

11. Grimmsnarl

Generation: VIII
Types: Dark / Fairy
Evolutions: Impidimp –> Morgrem –> Grimmsnarl

Grimmsnarl is a roughly human-sized, goblin-like or demon-like Pokémon. It has a menacing face with a large, tooth-reinforced mouth, a pointed, long nose and distinctive, pointed ears. It also has a lanky, green-skinned body that is covered in thick, dark purple fur in most places. This is a special feature, because it works like muscle fibers.

The muscle-building Pokémon wraps itself completely in its hair, which significantly increases its muscle strength. It is said to be stronger than even macho men. Grimmsnarl can also deliberately influence its hair: In a fight it loosens the hair from the body and wraps opponents as if with tentacles. It defends itself against opponents with a large number of devious attacks of the Fairy and Dark types.

It uses various attacks that are unique in its evolutionary series. An example of this wealth of tricks is an attack in which it reveals a piquant secret to the other person, whereupon their concentration is disturbed. In another special attack, it acts as if it were bowing humbly in order to then impale its perplexed opponents with its disheveled fur. In the case of the fairy attack, Broken Soul, it strikes so hard that the target loses all courage.

10. Ditto

Generation: I
Types: Normal
Evolutions: None

Ditto is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Ditto is a small, pink-colored Pokémon. The body of the normal Pokémon can be described as a lumpy mass of elastic and almost viscous consistency.

Several rounded bulges can be seen on the sides of the torso. In the upper part is the little face. It consists of two small, round eyes and a rather wide mouth. In its Shiny form, Ditto’s body is colored light blue. In addition, a Shiny Ditto since Generation III remains Shiny after using its characteristic move even on a non-Shiny Pokémon.

Ditto is a very common Pokémon and is native to all known regions to varying degrees. But despite its wide distribution range, this Pokémon is quite shy and rarely seen in the wild. As a natural habitat, it prefers grassy areas, but also caves and abandoned building ruins.

However, one is quite unsure about the exact population size of Ditto, as this Pokémon can change the arrangement of its body cells and thus transform itself into a perfect copy of any object or living being. If Ditto detects an opponent or predator, it takes on the appearance of its counterpart in a flash.

However, if it relies on its memory to transform, this Pokémon can make mistakes. How good the likeness is varies from specimen to specimen. In turn, when it wants to sleep, it turns into a stone to be safe. His art of transformation is almost perfect.

But if you make it laugh, its disguise falls and it involuntarily transforms itself back. Thanks to its abilities as a shapeshifter, it can also make friends with all living beings. It just doesn’t get along with conspecifics. If it hits another ditto, it moves faster than usual in order to mimic it exactly.

9. Salazzle

Generation: VII

Shiny specimens have white skin, the purple and pink decorations are identical.

Salazzle’s habitat are hot, often hostile areas such as the Wela Volcano Park, which it shares with other Fire-type Pokémon. It lives here in matriarchal groups from Salandit, whose males are subservient to the always female Salazzle.

Salazzle withdraws deep into dark caves and keeps the males, who are subservient to the pheromones, as servants. It feeds on Bug-type Pokémon, which it attracts with sweet poison gas, and Pokémon eggs.

Salandit, who bring no prey, are punished cruelly by slapping the face with its glowing palms, from which flames lick out. In the Alola region, the fragrant poison gas from Salazzle is used to produce perfume in a highly diluted form.

The Pokémon shows a funny movement behavior and prances back and forth wildly in battle, while it approaches opponents and irritates them. As soon as the enemies get careless, the Ultra Beast bursts its head and scares the other person with a loud bang.

This is done with the help of a special attack, in which Blacephalon lifts its spherical head from his body and hurls it at an enemy, whereupon it explodes in a firework-like explosion. In general, it attacks mainly with special attacks and also learns some status attacks of the Psychic-type by leveling up.

Blacephalon has the Beast Boost ability typical of Ultra Beasts. Each time it defeats a Pokémon, this increases its highest status value by one level for the remainder of the fight. Rumor has it that Blacephalon feeds on the life force of other living beings it has injured in battle. It uses this power as a source of energy. It stems from the Ultra Dimension.

6. Victini

Generation: V
Types: Fire / Psychic
Evolutions: None

Victini is a small, two-legged Pokémon that appears beige, orange, and black: the top of its ears, hands, and feet are colored orange, the rest of the body is beige. The Psychic / Fire Pokémon has a large head compared to its body. This is mainly due to the very large ears that are V-shaped. The rest of the head is rounded and the face consists of two very large blue eyes, a tiny nose and a mouth.

Victini’s upper body is quite slim, whereas the lower body and especially the legs appear very broad and plump. The arms are slender at the beginning and become a little wider and rounder towards the end, before they end with the small hands. The short feet each have two pointed toes. Also, the Pokémon has a two-part tail that resembles a pair of wings.

Victini is a Pokémon characterized by very balanced skills. Thus it can storm its opponents with physical attacks of its types, as well as with special attacks. Victini fights bravely and without regard for his own well-being, which is illustrated by his many powerful attacks that cause recoil damage; it even has a move with which it sacrifices itself to harm an opponent.

In addition, Victini can unleash a large explosion with its special attack, which damages everyone in its vicinity. Victini’s ability, Victory Star, is his special ability and increases the accuracy of Victini’s moves and its allies, which underlines his ability to bring luck in battle. Victini has the ability to give people victory and success.

For these reasons, Team Plasma went to the Liberty Garden, where Victini settled peacefully. After Team Plasma was driven out, Victini was caught. In the 14th Pokémon movie, Victini doesn’t inhabit Liberty Garden, but rather the Sword of the Vale, which is located above the Kingdom of the Vale.

Victini had carried this castle up a mountain by his own efforts. It did so as the king asked it to do after the population gathered at the castle to save themselves from an enormous war. After the castle landed on the mountain, the king put up a barrier to protect the castle.

Before he could open the barrier, the man died and Victini was forever trapped inside the barrier. One day, under the control of Damon, Victini was supposed to move the castle again. Victini refused, but Damon forced it to pass its powers on to some Solosis, which allowed them to do it instead.

Thanks to a vision, Ash, who was passing through there, realized that the castle must not be moved again, otherwise the Dragon energy would get out of control. Damon’s plan was thwarted. After a major battle for the castle, Victini was freed and is no longer trapped inside the barrier.

5. Lucario

Generation: IV
Types: Fighting / Steel
Evolutions: Riolu –> Lucario

Lucario is a mysterious Pokémon that can sense and see the aura of all living beings and inanimate things. Not only can it feel the movements of invisible opponents even in complete darkness, but it can also read the nature and feelings of its counterpart. The Aura Pokémon often lives withdrawn because it evades the stress it feels when it experiences the feelings of other living beings with them.

A well-trained Lucario can feel auras up to a kilometer away. Lucario looks for trainers whose aura matches his own and who are honorable and friendly; Therefore, only particularly committed trainers manage to win his trust and support.

4. Guzzlord

Generation: VII
Types: Dark / Dragon
Evolutions: None

Guzzlord is an Ultra Beast of the Dark- and Dragon-type and was introduced during Generation VII. Guzzlord is a very large and heavy, black-colored Pokémon with an extraordinary physique: the spherical body consists by and large of a single gigantic mouth. It stands on two short but massive legs; on the back there are tiny wings and a long tail, at the end of which sits a spiky ball. It also has two clawed arms, many spikes and a tiny head above its mouth with bright eyes.

This mouth is its most striking feature. It is equipped with meter-long, golden-yellow fangs. The broad tongue and the pharynx are covered with spikes. At the front, two more tongues protrude from the mouth, which have grasping jaws at the tips. With these stretchy tongues, Guzzlord grabs food and stuffs it into itself. At the end of his mouth there is a mysterious opening that emits a bluish light when it opens. It is not known where this opening leads to, but its body ends there.

In its Shiny form, Guzzlord is mainly colored white, while its fangs and various decorative elements are orange.

Guzzlord devours everything that comes within its reach and mainly learns fighting techniques that take advantage of its massive body and fangs-reinforced jaw. It throws itself at an enemy with different attacks, tramples on it with or bites. Other techniques such also show his connection to eating. It can also use its elastic gripping tongues to grab opponents and damage them with wringing out or attack them with a hammer arm. Schlingking has the Ultra Beast’s special ability; it defeats a Pokémon, it increases its highest status value.

Like all Ultra Beasts, Guzzlord originally came from the Ultra Dimension. Little is known about his living conditions there. Some records only report that the Ultra Skyscraper was once a flourishing metropolis with many people until a horde of Guzzlord arrived and only ruins remain of the buildings there. Some specimens are still there today and eat the remains of civilization.

There are also known incidents in which Guzzlord was previously seen in Alola, but these were carefully kept under lock and key by the international police. It was eventually spotted again in the Pokémon world after the Æther incident. Guzzlord ‘s behavior revolves around his insatiable appetite. It ingests tremendous amounts of food and only stops eating when it is asleep. It makes no difference whatsoever between the nature of the food and eats plants and other living things as well as soil and concrete. Research by the Aether Foundation has shown that it does not excrete digested food and it is unknown where it goes. According to one theory, it is completely converted into energy.

3. Charizard

Generation: I
Types: Fire / Flying
Evolutions: Charmander –> Charmeleon –> Charizard

Charizard is a large, two-legged, dragon-like Pokémon. The belly and the underside of the tail are colored beige. Except for the turquoise inside of the flight membrane, the rest of the body is colored orange. The Fire/Flying Pokémon has a sturdy body and impressive wings. Its elongated head is supported by a long neck. It has a powerful jaw with sharp teeth and two rear-facing, blunt horns.

The rather small eyes are made up of white leather skin as well as dark green irises and black, small pupils. The arms are relatively short and narrow, but strong in shape. The hands consist of three thick fingers, each equipped with a pointed, white claw. Charizard stands on two broad legs, each armed with three short, sharp claws at the bottom.

Finally, the long and wide tail, which becomes ever narrower towards the end, can be seen at the back, at the tip of which a huge, magnificent flame blazes.

Charizard has great physical strength as well as strong special attack powers. On the physical side, it uses its powerful claws. However, it can also bite hard or attack its counterpart with its wings. In particular, it uses its ability to spit fire for throwing flames and many other Fire-type attacks, which also make up a large part of its attacks that it can learn by leveling up.

According to the Pokédex, its fiery breath reaches incredibly high temperatures and can melt entire glaciers or rocks. The temperature of this flame increases with Charizard’s combat experience. It can add tremendous pain to opponents with it. Charizard already has a somewhat broader distribution spectrum and is only native to Kanto, Alola, Galar and Kalos.

It is extremely rare there in the wild and is used much more as a starter Pokémon in these regions. For this reason, most Charmander and its developments are owned by Pokémon Trainers and are bred and raised almost exclusively for this purpose. It is also used in Alola as a Pokémobil Pokémon for fast travel.

2. Rayquaza

Generation: III
Types: Dragon / Flying
Evolutions: None

Rayquaza is a Dragon- and Flying-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Together with Kyogre and Groudon, Rayquaza forms the Weather Trio of Legendary Pokémon.

Rayquaza’s primary color is green. Its body resembles that of a Chinese dragon, with the body being elongated and reminiscent of a snake. It is divided into ten individual segments. The foremost represents a long neck that supports the head. This consists of two long ears, two black eyes with yellow irises and a huge mouth.

To the left and right of it you can see a long ear and a long, protruding thorn, which is presumably a beard. There is a yellow line pattern on the back. The second segment carries the short, slender arms, each of which has a hand with three fingers on each end. A fin-like protrusion can be seen on the back, which is colored red at the edge.

To the left and right of it, the skin is decorated with a long, red line. The third segment only has a pattern of yellow ovals connected by a line. The fifth, seventh, and ninth segments appear in the same way. The fourth, sixth and eighth segments are also constructed identically to each other. They each have four trapezoidal, fin-like projections, like the one that can be seen on the back between the arms.

The rearmost segment, which represents the tail, is flat and triangular with a red border. In the middle, the triangle is split by a spike that protrudes beyond this triangle.

Rayquaza is capable of Mega Evolution. In this case, the green color becomes metallic, the trapezoidal fins take on the shape of small wings, and the yellow circular pattern becomes black and red. Two wings emerge from the fin on the back between the arms, the two spines next to the face become flat, wide structures that resemble a beard and run to a golden point.

The body of the Pokémon is adorned with numerous long, yellowish ribbons: two plain ones that grow just before the tail, two golden ones at the ends of the ears, and two equally golden ones, which also have a green end that resemble the tail of the normal form , and have their origin in the golden beard.

In its Shiny form, both Rayquaza and Mega Rayquaza are black instead of green.

Rayquaza lived for hundreds of millions of years above the clouds in the ozone layer. If you stand on the floor of the earth’s surface, you cannot see the Pokémon, and since it seldom descended to earth, its existence was unknown for a long time. In primeval times, the planet flowed through almost limitless reserves of natural energy.

Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre fought fierce battles over and over again in the Hoenn region over this energy. Humans were utterly powerless in the face of the tremendous power of the two Pokémon in their proto form. They had no choice but to wait and hope that the horror would soon end. At the same time, countless meteors fell on the Hoenn region. They hit the falls in an area that was home to a race of Dragon Pokémon Trainers, who since then have referred to themselves as the Draconite people and the falls as Meteor Falls.

The meteorites shone in all the colors of the rainbow, as if they had come to life and a Rayquaza shrouded in emerald green light descended from the sky. It seemed like it was magically drawn to the light from the meteorites. Rayquaza forced the two Pokémon down despite their Primal Forms, thus restoring peace to the planet. From then on, the residents of Hoenn celebrated Rayquaza as their “world saver”.

1. Greninja

Generation: VI
Types: Water / Dark
Evolutions: Froakie –> Frogadier –> Greninja

Greninja’s slim, athletic build combines human proportions with many characteristics that are reminiscent of a frog: webbed feet are stretched between its toes and fingers, and they run out in sticky suction cups. Its legs are very strong and give him immense speed and bounce. Its long, sticky, pink tongue is very noticeable and is wrapped around its neck like a scarf so that its mouth cannot be seen.

Greninja’s body is blue in color, its stomach, webbed feet and parts of his face are bright yellow and its joints are decorated with translucent bubbles. It has a noticeable jagged wreath on its head.

Greninja is characterized by immense speed and skill in handling weapons. The ninja Pokémon uses its strong legs to surprise its opponent with huge jumps and fast sprints or to distract him with tricky tricks, which is reflected in attacks such as double team or delegator. Greninja has both special and physical tricks up his sleeve to harass the opponent.

His fighting techniques are inspired by the Japanese ninja tradition. For example, it uses a cloud of smoke or dark fog to stun the opponent with tricks before it attacks. It seems to have a preference for small weapons, so it pulls out hidden blades to attack with a cutter. Its specialty are ninja stars made of compressed water, water shuriken. These can rotate at such a high speed that they can even cut through metal.

Another special attack is Greninja’s Tatami Shield, which it uses to hide itself and friendly Pokémon behind mats to repel enemy attacks. Like all Water Starter Pokémon, with enough affection, it is able to learn a special attack from an attack teacher. This attack does not only cause greater damage in combat, but is also one of the so-called combination attacks.

If combined with a similar Fire-type attack, it creates a rainbow that confuses all enemies. In combination with a similar Grass-type attack, a bog is created, which lowers the opponent’s initiative. For the first combination attack, columns of water and then columns of fire must first be carried out; for the second, columns of water must be carried out after Grass-type columns.

In addition, as a fully evolved water starter, Greninja can also learn the aqua howitzer from an attack teacher with enough affection. This is the water variant of the Hyper Beam and thus it is one of the strongest attacks of this elementary type. However, here too, the user has to sit out for one round after the attack has been used in order to recover afterwards.

Greninja’s ability is the torrent, which is the standard ability of all water-type starter Pokémon. If a Pokémon with a torrent has 1/3 or less of its maximum HP, the strength of water attacks increases by 50 percent. If HP is regenerated, the strength normalizes again. His Hidden Ability Transformation Art is the special ability of his development series. It allows the tricky Pokémon to adopt the type of attack it is using.

Since it can learn attacks of many types, it can make very good use of this property and thereby becomes a dangerously strong opponent, since it receives the type bonus on all of its attacks.

Greninja is a very ambitious Pokémon, which has high demands on itself and its trainer and is always working on the further development of its sophisticated martial art. It has a calm, stoic nature, but is a very loyal soul and would give anything in a fight for its coach.

Before we wrap up this article, we are going to answer some questions about Shiny Pokémon that are often asked around the Internet. This is going to be a brief section with some practical pieces of advice for trainers.

Are Shiny Pokémon better than “normal” Pokémon?

As explained above, Shiny Pokémon are just colored variants of regular Pokémon. There is no difference between these two groups aside from the different coloration. This means that Shiny Pokémon are neither stronger, nor weaker than regular Pokémon. In fact, they are exactly the same. The stats of a Shiny Pokémon aren’t, in any way, different than those of regular Pokémon. This means that a Shiny Pokémon is better only if you prefer its design; in all other aspects, they are completely the same.

How rare are Shiny Pokémon ?

The exact ration of Shiny Pokémon isn’t all that clear. Since their introduction, players have developed several different methods of calculating the basic ratios of getting a Shiny Pokémon in the core games, but these methods rarely give the same results. Here is a table of the methods and the ratios gotten by using these methods:

MethodGen. IIGen. IIIGen. IVGen. VGen. VIGen. VIIGen. VIII
Base rate1/81921/81921/81921/81921/40961/40961/4096

Hidden Pokémon: Search Level 200 + X 0.08% + X*0.01%
SOS Battles: ≥31 13/4096
Dynamax Adventure 1/300

Are Shiny Pokémon worth it?

If you’re playing the main games, then the hunt for Shiny Pokémon, since they don’t bring much to your game aside from a different design, isn’t all that worth it. Whether you have a Shiny Mewtwo or a regular one doesn’t really matter, as both will be equally strong. In Pokémon Go, on the other hand, a game focused on collecting Pokémon, the hunt for Shiny Pokémon is certainly worth it, as it’ll make your collection more valuable. This means that the answer to this question actually depends on the game you’re playing.
