Pokemon Sword and Shield players will know that catching a shiny Pokemon is not easy. In fact, many players on the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite will never catch a shiny Pokemon. However, although the odds are against the players, there are many hardcore players who spend hours and hours hunting shiny Pokemon. That said, sometimes players will spend tens and tens of hours tracking specific glitters, and other times brilliant ones come looking for them.
Heading to Reddit, a player revealed that after spending 90 minutes hunting for Zapdos’ gala form, a square shiny Tyrogue immediately charged them. As you may know, there is a 1/4096 chance of a shining wild star. However, it is square shiny, which is less common in breeding, but more common in the wild. However, they are still very rare and if someone charges you as soon as you catch a legend, it is not commonplace.
