Double Shiny Encounter

You might have seen a shiny encounter in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl but have you seen a double shiny encounter before?

Twitch streamer MitchOG was doing a shiny-only run in the newest Pokémon remakes and managed to get the encounter of a lifetime - a shiny starter Turtwig and shiny Starly in the same battle. The odds of a shiny encounter are one-in-4096 and a double encounter is a one-in-almost 17 million chance.

It reportedly took the streamer around three and a half hours and 107 resets to encounter his first shiny (which ended up being a double encounter). Being the first battle in the game though, unfortunately, he wasn't able to catch the shiny Starly - but it's still pretty neat.

Since Mitch's double shiny encounter, Pokémon fans around the world have been telling the streamer to go out and buy a lottery ticket - the odds are certainly better. If you would like some help catching your own shiny, be sure to check out our detailed guide:
