Pokemon Scarlet and Violet‘s first week of release has been plagued with bugs, glitches and performance issues–some frustrating, some fun, and others proving useful to creative players. Two new exploits have been discovered that maximize a player’s chance of encountering shiny Pokemon–one that allows you to duplicate a shiny spawn, another that increases the chances of a shiny spawning.
The first, as picked up by Video Games Chronicle, was discovered by YouTuber Austin John Plays, and allows players to capture the same shiny Pokemon multiple times when performed correctly. To work, it has to be in an area near an open town, or another area that doesn’t require a loading screen to enter.
If players find and catch a shiny, or another Pokemon they want to duplicate, in an area matching this description, they can then walk towards the town, and at the point where the town’s name comes up on screen, save and restart the game.
