PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

When I do EV training, I like to turn off battle scene to save time. I'm worried that I'll miss a shiny Pokemon if its sprite looks very similar to the regular sprite.

No. Battle Effects affect the moves, field affects, status conditions, and weather in the battle, not the animation of the Pokemon itself.


Multiple forum posts online also claim that the battle effects do not affect the shiny animation, but they are forum posts.

I can second this. I found a shiny Beautifly with the battle scene off and the sparkles still showed up.
