Pokemon Rumble Rush Shiny Pokemon

Shiny Pokemon are an integral part of the majority of Pokemon games. They offer different variants on standard Pokemon, though are notoriously rare. You won’t find any Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Rumble Rush, at least not in the traditional sense. They have yet to be added to the game, though there are sparkling Pokemon that you’ll see on your map.

While exploring the many islands of Pokemon Rumble Rush, you may come across Sparkling Pokemon. These Pokemon will have a sparkling aura around them, but what does this mean exactly? Well, Sparkling Pokemon are guaranteed catches. By playing that Pokemon’s stage, you’ll always catch it. There’s no fixed rarity or CP level, however, so you’ll need to keep this in mind.

How to Find Sparkling Pokemon in Pokemon Rumble Rush

Unfortunately, there’s no way to guarantee a Sparkling Pokemon sighting. You’ll just need to keep an eye out for them while exploring each map. Make sure you’re using Guide Feathers to get new Pokemon, and you’ll find some in no time.
