    Sure you weren’t watching the ultra recon squad video? Have spoken to people who’ve picked it up and they all said poke ball.

    Not to mention it’s possible they hacked in some poipole / naganadel in beast balls.

    It's in a Pokeball when you receive it, many people have used injected Poipole's in videos.

    no portal color garuntee's a shiny in fact once you enter a portla with a regular pokemon you cant save and soft reset. when it comes to non legendaries/ub's weather its shiny or not is determined once you go through the portal

    Is it even possible to save right before entering a portal?

    Doesnt seem like it since you fly into them....
    Seems they made softreseting for legends harder this time huh.

    I don't think so. You should be able to SR normally. Apparently the non-legends are just fixed to be either 100% shiny or 100% not.

    Legendaries/UBs still use normal shiny odds.

    The catch here is that you go through the portal, and then save. Then, engage the Ultra Beast. If the first one is shiny, then you can safely soft reset and assume every UB in that portal will be shiny (because the odds of it not being the case are very low).

    Oooh thanks for explaining, are IVs and Nature determined the same way?
    If they are my point of softreseting (in regards to competitivily usefull) for legends has become a lot harder, since you need to refind the randomly selected legendary again through portals.

    There is a lot of misinformation flying around in here. If you encounter a regular Pokémon, it will either always be shiny or not. You can still save before encountering it and reset for natures and IVs. For legendaries and ultra beasts, you have the standard shiny chance of 1/4096 per encounter, so you can save before the encounter and reset for shininess.

    To clarify: that means you can never find a guaranteed shiny portal for a legendary, right?

    Do Razor Claw/Fang and Metal Coat still require Thief to obtain or is there an easier way to obtain these?

    Apology if already answered, but how can one get Stakkataka/Blacephelon if they aren't in the typical wormholes?

    I'd assume the only remaining options are on the overworld or in a similar manner to how we got the UBs in SM.

    ub's and legendaries odds of shiny arent determined untill the battle starts so you can save after you go through the wormhole. for regular pokemon it determines weather its shiny or not after you enter the portal. so if you enter a portal and save and the encounter is quagsire either it will always be shiny or always be not shiny

    What are the caracteristics of Totem Pokemon you can catch during the Totem Sticker quest ? Is it only a difference of height and weight ?

    Their abilities are set, for example, Totemsized Lurantis will always have Leaf Guard.
    Other than that and size, there is no difference. Not even in Pokedex size and weight, if Im correct.
