In the two new chapters of the series has been introduced a further novelty. The Pokemon Color, in fact, can occur in two variants: one in which the creature is surrounded by stars, and the other of which is surrounded by squares. How many are the chances of meeting them and catch them? How you can increase these chances? We try to explain below.

How to increase the probability of encountering a Pokemon with the Chromatic Sword and Shield
Meet the Pokemon Color is anything but simple. Fortunately, adopting a series of methods that you can increase your chances of meeting them and catch them. Let’s see how to do it.
Get the Cromamuleto
One of the most effective methods is to obtain and use the Cromamuleto. By equipping this item, in fact, increase by 300%, the probability of encountering the Pokemon Chromatic Sword and Shield, bringing it to 1 on 1365,33.
As we have already explained on our pages, to unlock the Cromamuleto you need to complete the Pokedex of the Barge, and then go talk with the doctor who is at the Hotel Circhester.
Use the method Chain
Also in Pokemon the Sword and Shield, you can use the method of chains to increase the probability of encountering the Pokemon Shiny. Unlike previous games, where it was necessary to capture Pokemon of the same species consecutively, to form a chain in Pokemon with a Sword and Shield just to meet them. The two games, in fact, will take into account the number of specimens encountered for each species in the course of the adventure, raising the probability to meet the relevant Colour version according to this diagram:
- 1 to 2048
- with Cromamuleto: 1 to 1024
- 1 on 1365
- with Cromamuleto: 1 on 819.2
- 1 to 1024
- with Cromamuleto: 1 on 682.6667
- 1 on 819.2
- with Cromamuleto: 1 on 585.1429
- with Cromamuleto: 1 to 512
Given that the chain method was simplified in Pokemon Sword and Shield, we recommend you to make the most of to increase your chance of meeting the Pokemon Shiny, especially in the endgame. Once you have obtained the Cromamuleto, moreover, things get even more simple.
Using the method of Masuda for the Eggs
The method of Masuda is an excellent alternative to the method of the chains. It consists in entrusting to a Board two Pokemon from two games of different languages. In this way, the Egg that is born from two Pokemon there will be the following probability to hatch a Pokemon Color:
- 1 682.7 without Cromamuleto
- 1 to 512 with Cromamuleto
Also in this case, be in possession of a Cromamuleto will offer you more chance to get Pokemon Color. In this case, by coupling two Pokemon with the method of Masuda have the same probability of finding a Pokemon Shiny after a chain of 500 meetings, goal for this last one definitely requires much more time. If you want to get creatures of colour in the fastest possible way, therefore, we advise you to opt for the method Masuda.
