What was the first shiny you've officialy caught in Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee?


Well-Known Member
Mine was Rhydon. Caught it today at Cerulean Cave.

Although, I did get the shiny Eevee in Let's Go Pikachu when they've had it for the event.


Objectively Better Than You
I have yet to capture a Shiny in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! yet, but I was really close once with a Ponyta on Pokémon Road. It was my first Shiny encounter of the game, and I was really excited to have a cool Shiny Rapidash as my ride Pokémon. Alas, it fled and I was left without an epic steed.

A random shiny Pidgey. Named him Sam after my pet bird.

My first was a Grimer in Cinnabar Mansion. I’ve only seen two others besides that. A Pidgeotto in the sky and a Chansey in the Power Plant.

My avatar picture! Well, not quite haha. Spent 4+ hours chaining and hunting for a shiny Clefairy in Mt. Moon. Now I have my flawless IV, Modest, lv. 100 shiny Clefable.

Well, you do know you can change these right? There’s a woman in Channeler in the Celadon City Pokemon center that can determine the nature of all the Pokémon you run into for 24hours. Google Let’s Go fortune teller for the tutorial. Also, you can farm bottle caps to train your IVs once the Pokémon is Lv. 100! My Clefairy was actually missing 2 Best IVs, so I used bottle caps to finish out the other two.


Shiny Lapras. I was looking for a Shiny Seel for an hour and came across Lapras instead while I was heading back to Cinnabar to replenish lures.

The fact the nature was set to Modest was a huge plus.

Bellsprout so that whoever the diva in Pewter Gym is would let me battle :rolleyes:

There's a tinge of sadness at how easy shiny hunting's become. Feels like if you get that 31 combo you'll get your shiny to spawn. I just completed my second hunt for abra yesterday. Took two tries to get thee combo to 31 but once I did in several hours a shiny chansey spawned which I ignored because I didn't want to recatch 31 abra (I should have though because would have made the journey even more rewarding) and then the next day in either under an hour or two she appeared. Didn't scare her away and caught her with a reg razz and a premier ball.


Jiggylpuff by daycare in let’s go pikachu with shiny chain of 36.

Zubat in let’s go evee with full odds. No lure shiny chain of 2

My first was a Tentacool in Let's Go Eevee. Crazy thing was it was full odds. No chain and no shiny charm as I only had 5 badges at the time. I completely freaked when I saw it because I love Tentacool/Tentacruel and I've never been that lucky before. The only problem I had was Tentacruel wasn't a very good battler. I sadly had to box it, still cool though.
