    Only an hour or so into the game. I was just about to go to Professor Kukui's laboratory when I decided to roam the area first. I encounter a wild Pokemon (Slowpoke) and noticed a star appear out of him. My instinct tells me that it's a shiny Slowpoke?

    I opened the game in HANS to take a few screenshots. There shouldn't be any spoilers

    Yup, that's the right coloration for a shiny.

    I wonder if GF made shinies easier to get now (again).

    Well he could have PKHex'd it. But then again over 1k members are already playing it, it's not that rare to find a shiny given the sample size.

    I will say that while I did have plans to PKHex my Rowlet from a female into a male, I never got around to it before I encountered the Slowpoke
