Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s first DLC, The Teal Masks, brings a handful of latest ‘mons so as to add to your Pokédex, and one specifically is changing into a fan favourite: Dipplin. The grass/dragon-type Pokémon relies on a sweet apple, and is drenched in a heat, pink syrup. Nevertheless, when you catch its shiny type, the alternatively-colored little man is as an alternative enveloped in a golden coating. That’s all effectively and good, however what makes Dipplin’s shiny type vital is that this different look alters the best way its assaults are rendered, in a manner only some Pokémon can declare.

Welcome to Exp. Share, Kotaku’s Pokémon column wherein we dive deep to discover notable characters, city legends, communities, and simply plain bizarre quirks from all through the Pokémon franchise.

Dipplin has a signature transfer referred to as Syrup Bomb. Because the identify suggests, this assault has the sentient sweet apple lobbing a grass-type glob of gloop at its opponent. On prime of doing a little injury, it additionally slows down whoever’s on the opposite finish of the one-sided meals struggle for 3 turns. So it’s good for counteracting any pace buffs your rivals may need in place, in addition to simply night the enjoying subject towards any fast foes. However as a result of it’s a signature transfer, the animation is tailor-made to Dipplin, and so it usually seems with the identical shade of pink that covers the Pokémon. This modifications for the shiny type, because the assault as an alternative takes the identical golden tone.

Followers took notice of this and highlighted it on social media, the phenomenon being so uncommon a couple of mistakenly thought Dipplin may be the primary Pokémon to get this remedy. Nevertheless, there are two different strikes which have shiny kinds, however they’re so disparate and obscure that you’ll have by no means really seen them in colour. And sadly, you may’t see them in Scarlet and Violet.

Each of those shiny assaults are additionally signature strikes, which is why they’re capable of tailor them to at least one Pokémon’s shiny type. Blacephalon was the primary, in Pokémon Extremely Solar and Extremely Moon. Its assault, Thoughts Blown, has the unsettling Extremely Beast take away and toss its spherical head at its opponent, and since its noticed skull trades a vivid white for a darkish blue, the projectile utilized in Thoughts Blown is modified to mirror that.

Blacephalon isn’t in Scarlet and Violet, so Thoughts Blown isn’t within the recreation in any respect to check. Nevertheless, Dragapult—the third Pokémon whose signature transfer is altered in its Shiny type—is. Dragapult’s signature transfer in Sword and Protect is Dragon Darts, which fires, effectively, the tiny Dreepy that it retains in its horns (they’re advantageous, most likely—the Pokédex says they love being launched on the enemies of their fathers). And since Dragapult’s Shiny type comes full with Shiny Dreepy hiding within the cannons on its head, Dragon Darts additionally has a different-colored animation to go along with it. Effectively, it did earlier than Scarlet and Violet, a minimum of. The latest video games have made Dragon Dart rather more generic-looking.

So whereas Dipplin isn’t the primary Pokémon to get this neat little element, it does convey consideration to simply how few assault animations really feel tailor-made to the Pokémon utilizing them in current video games. This is sensible given Scarlet and Violet have pushed the Pokédex over the 1000 monster mark, and Sport Freak can not moderately make each assault for each Pokémon appear to be it was animated for each mixture you may consider. But it surely does make little touches like this really feel particular within the grand scheme of issues. Hopefully Dipplin’s golden Syrup Bomb doesn’t get sanded right down to a generic pink in future video games.
