Pokemon Battle Revolutions player gets the world’s first shiny Groudon costume

For the first time in 15 years, a player in Pokemon Battle Revolutions has received an all odds Shiny costume, and it only took them two years to find it.

When Shiny Pokemon were introduced in Generation 2, they would have a significant impact on the franchise. Shiny Hunters would form one of the largest groups of fandom looking for new and innovative ways to find different colored creatures.

Over the last 26 years the community has discovered some great hunts. From the complex hunts of Manaphy and Jirachi to finding Shiny Pokemon in Rumble cutscenes, there’s no shortage of unique hunts.

But one hunt had eluded players in the past 15 years. Teased in official game manuals and with little evidence floating around the internet, Hunter Professor Tops would be the first to find and own a Shiny costume in Pokemon Battle Revolution.

Found Pokemon Battle Revolution Shiny Costume

Professor Topsone of two streamers on the BrofessorsLab Twitch channelFor the past two years, she’s been chasing the Shiny Groudon costume off and on in Pokemon Battle Revolution. He started the hunt on April 14, 2020 and finally found the costume on May 12, 2022.

This hunt is very challenging as it takes an average of 12-14 minutes per encounter. Luckily, Tops always hunted on four or eight consoles, which expedited the hunt. Even so, the hunter would complete the Magma Colosseum 8,736 times after the game to actively hunt the Shiny costume for about 300 hours.

“It feels so amazing to know and have a secret that was put into a Pokémon game 15 years ago! I ground this up as a challenge to show that it’s possible, and now people can see just how amazing this obscure Pokémon game on the Nintendo Wii really is,” Tops shared with Dexerto.

He also urges Shiny Hunters to try this hunt. There are shiny Pokemon in the game that are more “manageable” to hunt down, and there are even more shiny costumes yet to be found.

How Professor Tops came up with the Shiny costume

It’s important to note that Tops didn’t blindly hunt in hopes the costume existed. In fact, Tops isn’t the first person to come across the Shiny costume. However, he would be the first person to find and actually own the costume.

We don’t know the exact odds of finding a Shiny costume, but Professor Tops suspects it’s the classic 8192/1 full chance. You can also only get a costume once, which means if you claim a non-shiny costume and then find its shiny variant, you won’t be able to keep it. This happened to the previous trainer who found the shiny Groudon costume.

Professor Tops explains, “Some of the coliseums have leaders with Pokémon costumes that can be shiny. The costume is unlocked by defeating the entire Colosseum and the boss wearing the costume.”

So, in each encounter, players must defeat the entire coliseum to the final battle. If the last trainer doesn’t have a Shiny costume, you’ll have to reset the coliseum and hit it again.

Tops also discovered that what the game calls a “Perfect Point” lets you reroll the costume’s shine to get multiple encounters per coliseum run. In a recent stream, Tops noted that this newfound discovery might motivate him to search for all the shiny costumes.
