Greninja, the unrivaled Greninja, is about to arrive in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and with it, the obvious answer strikes every fan's faces: can it be shiny?
If you have played in the Charizard and Cinderace Tera Raids in the last few months since the game was released you will know the answer.
The Greninja Tera Raid will not give you a shiny Greninja at the end of it, and there is no percent probability of one appearing, but that doesn't mean there aren't methods for you to get a shiny version in the game.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, how do I get Shiny Greninja?
While you can't get a Shiny Greninja in the Tera Raid itself, there are methods to still get a shiny frog while playing. It's one of the more laborious methods out there.
Once you have the Greninja, you will need to breed it with a Ditto to get Froakie eggs. From there, you will need to hope that RNG is on your side. When the eggs hatch, a shiny Froakie will appear. Then after you evolve it into a Greninja, you will get the shiny frog you wish you had.
The Masuda technique, which is used in different countries, gives you a slightly better chance of finding a Shiny Froakie, but you may still be at it for a while. Unless you get super lucky and get it within your first few attempts, of course.
