The rarest little tea cup of them all After 10,679 encounters, countless hours of grinding, and an entire year of hunting, streamer Dominick “DOM1NaT0r” Hanson has finally hunted down one of the rarest shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield: an authentic shiny Sinistea. Shiny Pokémon or “shinies,” are versions of the creatures we know and love, except with a different color palette.
In Sword and Shield, there are two forms of Sinistea: an authentic form and a counterfeit form.
This little pink teacup called Sinistea is among the rarest in Sword and Shield.
Of course, a person could just simply cheat and create one of these Pokémon and add any old Pokémon into the game.
