Hogwarts Legacy: How to Catch Shiny Pets

Hogwarts Legacy

Since before the release of the game, we knew that in Hogwarts Legacy we could capture and take care of fantastic animals, but what we didn't expect is that it would also be possible to find shiny ones. All Pokémon lovers will surely be familiar with the term, which indicates that a creature is covered with a golden halo and that, precisely for this reason, it is rarer than the standard version.

Let's start immediately from an assumption: the shiny animals in Hogwarts Legacy have no difference from the common ones except in color. It is only a rarer version that the developers wanted to include as a gem, and you can recognize them thanks to a symbol next to the name that looks like a star.

However, if you want to get shiny animals at all costs , in this guide we will explain how to do it in a simple way, so that you don't have to rely purely on chance.

Also, we advise you to take a look at our Complete Guide on Hogwarts Legacy, where you will find lots of tips, as well as trivia and tricks, to become skilled wizards in no time at all!

How to catch shiny pets in Hogwarts Legacy

Since finding shiny pets in Hogwarts Legacy is completely random, the trick to catching them is simply to get them to spawn in the first place. So, here are the steps to follow:

Choose a kind of magical creature you want to capture shiny and go to the corresponding nest Even if there are no shiny, capture all the animals in the area (for example, the Puffskein and Mooncalf spawn in groups of 3 or 4 specimens) After capturing all the animals in the nest, open the map and change the cycle from night to day or vice versa Save the game manually Load the last manual save The night-day cycle and the saving and loading process will force the game to repopulate the area with creatures if they are not present, so there will be a better chance of them spawning shiny. So you just have to repeat the steps until you find a creature with a glittering halo, which indicates its rarity status.
