The Shiny Charm will boost your chances of catching the all-important shiny Pokemon in Sword and Shield, so, here’s how you can get your hands on it.

The long-awaited release of Pokemon Sword and Shield has captured fans into the eighth generation of the Pokedex, so there’s plenty of new creatures to capture during trainer battles and in the wild. 

However, the chances of finding shiny Pokemon are incredibly slim – just as DisguisedToast found out recently in a Twitch stream, losing $5,000 in a bet where he guaranteed to find a shiny Wooloo in 15 hours.

Now, that’s where the Shiny Charm comes into play, but to make finding shiny versions that much easier, you’re still going to have to put in the time. 

PokemonShiny Pokemon are key to your success in Sword and Shield.

In fact, to even trigger the game to spawn the Shiny Charm, you’ll need to complete the entire Galarian Pokédex first. Yes, that’s right, capture and collect data on all 400 Pokemon – but don’t worry about Dynamax or Gigantimaxed variants.

Now, with the hard part out of the way, the easy stuff can begin. Head to the Circhester location and once the game loads up, find the first hotel in the city square.

PokemonCirchester is vital to getting the Shiny Charm.

From there, you need to hop into the elevator and find the room that is furthest on the left before stepping inside.

Once in, you’ll see a medical-themed NPC with a mask on their face. Head over to him and strike up a conversation. If you’ve visited him before, you’ll know the guy as he also gives you the Catching Charm.

If not, and this is your first conversation, be prepared to receive that first before he hands over the Shiny Charm. You may need to strike up two conversations to receive everything.

With the charms in your back pocket, finding shiny Poke’s will become easier than normal, but it’ll still stake some luck to get the one you want. Having the charms will give you a one in 1,365.33 chance of encountering a shiny, so make sure to scour the Wild Area as much as you can.

Even with the charm, it could take up a fair bit of your time, but at least it makes the chances of finding them even higher than usual. Good luck!

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
