Shiny Pokemon have always been some of the rarest and hardest to acquire in any Pokemon game and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (aka – Pokemon BDSP) is no different when it comes to this. Usually, the odds of getting a Shiny Pokemon are very, very low and require that you do a lot of grinding until you get one. That is, if you don’t have the Shiny Charm. This item increases your chances to receive a Shiny variant when you hatch a Pokemon egg (not when you encounter Pokemon in the wild). However, to be able to get this item, you will need to do several things in the game first. In this Get Shiny Charm in Pokemon BDSP guide, we will explain what those are.

With the Shiny Charm, your odds of hatching a Shiny Pokemon will rise substantially. In previous games, this Shiny Charm affected all Pokemon, including those encountered in the wild, but for Pokemon BDSP, it only affects the eggs.
