The Shiny Charm (Japanese: ひかるおまもり Shining Charm) is a key item in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and Pokémon X and Y, acting as a reward for completing the National Pokédex.

In the games

The Shiny Charm increases the chance of encountering a Shiny Pokémon, both in the wild and through breeding. This is known to stack with other modifiers which increase the Shiny encounter rate, such as the Masuda method.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, the player can receive the Shiny Charm from Professor Juniper after obtaining all the Pokémon in the National Pokédex and then speaking with Cedric Juniper.

In Pokémon X and Y, the player can receive the Shiny Charm from Professor Sycamore after obtaining all the Pokémon in the National Pokédex, with the exception of event Pokémon.
