How to get the Shiny Charm in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

How to unlock more Satchel Space in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The newest Pokémon game has added and refined a bunch of content. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a pretty big change for the series, as it brings out plenty of things to learn. There have been many new additions and brought forward mechanics this time around. Fast travel is back and easier than ever before. Players have a simplified system around Shiny hunting, as well as held items in the new RPG. That’s not all that’s been changed either. There’s an option to change a Pokémon’s name in Pokémon Legends: Arceus now as well. One thing that has been changed is that the evolution system is now manual, giving Trainers more granular control over their teams.

Unlike previous Pokémon games, the Pokédex is not as simple as it once was. But there are a few things that have been refined this time around. Given that you’re exploring a new region with limited technology, the game has changed a fair bit. The game wants you to explore, so get ready to put the work in. You simply have to head around each of the regions of the game and get your hands on research data.

How to get the Shiny Charm in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The Shiny Charm is acquired upon reaching Research Level 10 on all Pokémon in the Hisui Pokédex. That means you’re going to be spending a lot of time with the game. Getting to level 10 will take time, so you won’t see the Shiny Charm until you reach the end of the game. Capturing is only the first step, and that’s where the tedium sets in.

Each Pokémon you catch comes with a set of 10 research tasks to do. You have to then follow wild variants around collecting data on them doing various things. Each task will be different so you will need to visit the Pasture to swap your party pretty often. Just keep going around and filling out goals until you get the Shiny Charm.
