Some players anticipate new Pokemon content for the storyline while others can’t wait to see what wonderous creatures await them on their next adventure. But some, myself included, can’t wait to see those new Shiny Pokemon; such has been the case for Scarlet & Violet Indigo Disk DLC.
There aren’t too many new Pokemon in the Indigo Disk DLC. Eight total, if you aren’t counting all three forms of Terapagos. But if you’re a Shiny hunter, that’s 16 forms in total (save none of them are Shiny locked). Here are all of the new Shiny Forms in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Indigo Disk DLC.
SPOILERS: Beyond this point you will see Pokemon that were not revealed in any trailers or news posts. Please scroll at your own risk.
All Indigo Disk Shiny Pokemon Forms
Below is a table showing all eight new Pokemon and their Shiny Variants introduced in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Indigo Disk DLC.

While some Pokemon have lackluster Shiny forms, the Indigo Disk DLC knocks nearly all of the new forms out of the park. With every new batch of Pokemon comes a few underwhelming Shinies, and the Indigo Disk seems to be the exception.
Notably, the two Legendary Pokemon introduced in the DLC, Terapagos and Pecharunt, have outstanding Shiny forms. This is a rare occurrence, as past Mythic and Legendary Pokemon have had pitiful Shiny variants at best.
Now here’s the kicker: all of the above Pokemon with the exception of Archaludon and Hydrapple are shiny-locked, which means you won’t be able to acquire their Shiny form via legitimate means. They join a long list of Legendary and Mythical Pokemon that are unobtainable in their Shiny forms, which is often the case with the 3D-era of Pokemon games. Sometimes developer GameFreak will make Shiny Mythical and Legendary Pokemon available through special events, but for now, they remain locked away. It’s unfortunate, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for a Shiny Terapagos event in the future.
