An oddity in Altaris!
After rumors and sightings in far-off regions such as Kalos, a new variation on
Pokémon species has been confirmed in the Altaris Region! Dubbed "Metallic Pokémon" for their dull colors and bright sheen, these Pokémon are similar to Shiny Pokémon in their scarcity in the wild.
Researchers are still looking into determining the cause of such an anomaly, as it seems present in the Pokémon from birth and appears to have no relation to genetics. Breeders nonetheless attempt to consistently produce them- perhaps one of them will find a lead?
Metallic Pokémon can be found everywhere in the wild, but are rarer even than Shiny Pokémon. They are no stronger than their normally-colored counterparts and, to many trainers, are simply a novelty high in demand for their rarity.
