[US/UM] Ultra Beast Shinys
#1
Heya! Im currently soft resetting for a shiny Nihilego. When I engage in battle with it, it's name appears as ???. Im just making sure it can still be shiny this way? Im pretty paranoid when it comes to shiny hunting, so just making sure im not wasting my time.


Thank you!

Yes, it can still be Shiny. The ??? just means you haven't registered one in your PokéDex yet. Doesn't affect the Shiny odds.

Hope that helped, @TigerThornX!

@TigerThornX Apparently yes (but I'm far from an authority on US/UM).

Whether Nihilego is shiny or not seems to be decided at the first time you engage in battle, but I wouldn't take this as a decisive piece of information. Maybe someone else here can confirm this?

Edit: I didn't update this page for hours, and I just noticed that 0kamii already answered the question very well.
