Pokemon Sun and Moon have officially hit the stores, bringing the all-new Generation 7 monsters. Included in the new offerings are the starter Pokemon Rowlet, Popplio and Litten. These three pose a tough choice for gamers, but it gets even tougher if you want to get a Shiny Pokemon as a starter.
Pokemon Sun And Moon Shiny Pokemon As Starter?
First, what is a Shiny Pokemon? Prevalent throughout the whole franchise, Shinies are like regular monsters except that they sport a different color scheme than the usual. They are not actually shiny, but the name derives from the sparkling sound and animation when one appears.
These are very rare in Pokemon Sun and Moon, as well as in other titles, but it is possible to get one. It is also certainly possible to get a Shiny Rowlet, Popplio and Litten. But how?
Unfortunately, we cannot do some steps in order to ensure an encounter with it. Rather, all we can do is keep restarting the whole game in the slim chances of getting a Shiny Pokemon as your starter. As previously said, this type of Pokemon is very rare, so it might take a hundred resets to actually get one.
The feat is not impossible, so you better be patient if you really want a Pokemon Sun and Moon Shiny starter. According to Kotaku, a Shiny Rowlet seems to be the easiest to obtain, so you might want to adjust your preference to the Flying/Grass type monster.
Advantages Of A Soft Reset Of Pokemon Sun And Moon
Aside from possibly getting a Shiny starter, you might actually get what you want if you soft reset your Pokemon Sun and Moon game. A huge percentage of users want a female Pokemon, so they will actually take the time to keep resetting the game until they get one.
Another is that the stats change every time Pokemon Sun and Moon is reset, so you might encounter a Rowlet, Popplio or Litten with the stats that you want when you decide to do a soft reset. Others take hours to get past the starter Pokemon stage, but these are some dedicated individuals.
Pokemon Sun And Moon Best Starter Pokemon
While some already have their Pokemon of choice, whether Shiny or female or both, others are still stuck at choosing from the three starters. The most popular choice is Litten, a Fire-type creature that evolves into Torracat and then into Incineroar. From Gen 1 to Gen 7, it seems fans are still more inclined to choose Fire.
However, the Flying/Grass type, which is usually the least popular, is more recommended in Pokemon Sun and Moon. Its final evolution Decidueye is incredibly fast, which is one of the most important aspects of a Pokemon even in past titles. Its special stats and attack power are something else, too. These more than make up for its shortcomings and they make Rowlet a better choice.
