We all know that Shiny Hunting is the true post-game in the Pokémon franchise. After all of the Legendaries have been caught and the trainers have been battled, the only thing left to do is hunt Shiny Pokémon.

Luckily, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet have made it easier than ever to catch Shinies thanks to Herba Mystica and Sparkling Power Sandwiches.
