With Snow Lands of the Crown, the second DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield was released on Friday, October 23, 2020. This not only gives you new story elements, but also new Dynamax adventures. These not only let you go on the hunt for common Pokémon, but also give you the chance to find other legendary Pokémon. This could be especially interesting for the shiny hunters among you, as it now turned out

Dataminer SciresM came to this conclusion after taking a deep look into the data relating to the DLC. According to his find, the chance of encountering the Shiny variant of a Pokémon in the course of a Dynamax adventure is significantly higher than in normal occurrences. SciresM then announced this on Twitter.
(AME = "
Pokemon from dynamax adventures are rolled to be forced shiny.
Odds are exactly 1/300 without shiny charm, exactly 1/100 with shiny charm.
This uses cryptographically secure randomness, so no RNG.
All shinies found this way will be stars (xor result = 1).

According to this, basically every Pokémon can appear in its dazzling version, including legendary Pokémon. The chance that it actually occurs is 1: 300 without the item Schillerpin and even 1: 100 if you have it. This chance applies to Each Pokémon individually and since we encounter a total of four Pokémon in a Dynamax adventure, an overall probability can be derived from this. This increases the chance of encountering a Shiny Pokémon in the course of a complete Dynamax adventure without Schillerpin to 1:75 and with Schillerpin to 1:25.
In the normal case, i.e. apart from Dynamax adventures, the chance of a Shiny Pokémon without the Schillerpin is only 1: 4096, with the Schillerpin at least 1: 1365. As a result, even in the best of circumstances, you are likely to stay a long way from the high probabilities of the Dynamax adventures, which is why you shouldn't miss them.
