==In the games==
The Shiny Charm increases the chance of encountering a [[Shiny Pokémon]], both in the {{pkmn2|wild}} and through {{pkmn|breeding}}. This is done by generating two extra [[personality value]]s to attempt to find one that is Shiny, effectively resulting in a tripled chance to find Shiny Pokémon compared to the base chance (from 1/8192 to approximately 3/8192 in [[Generation V]], or from 1/4096 to approximately 3/4096 in [[Generation VI]]). This stacks with most other modifiers which increase the Shiny encounter rate, such as the [[Masuda method]].
In {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, the player can receive the Shiny Charm from [[Professor Juniper]] after obtaining all the Pokémon in the National Pokédex, with the exception of [[event Pokémon]], and then speaking with [[Cedric Juniper]].
