Appendix 14

Shiny Leaves

Shiny Leaves are a rare non-standard item obtained in tall grass with the assistance of your Pokemon and are collected to obtain one of the stars on your Trainer ID Card. 

These leaves are obtained by talking to your Pokemon (facing the Pokemon that you have in the first party position and that is walking behind you, and talking to it) in a particular section of tall grass.  The section of tall grass that you will need to be in when doing this is entirely dependent upon the Nature of your Pokemon -- please consult the list below to determine which Routes you need to be on for a given Nature.

After you find one leaf you should return to New Bark Town and speak with Lyra in order to trigger the Shiny Leaf Trainer Card Quest.  Note that these leaves do not appear in your bag -- to ascertain which of your Pokemon has a leaf you must examine their Summary Screen.  The leaf will appear on the Summary Screen along the bottom in the border area.

When you show the first leaf to Lyra she will charge you with the quest of obtaining an additional four leaves on that same Pokemon (note that having one leaf on five Pokemon or five spread over several Pokemon does NOT work -- all five must be held by the SAME Pokemon!).  Once you have five leaves on one Pokemon return to Lyra and she will unlock the star on your Trainer Card, and take the five leaves from you and turn them into a Leaf Crown, which she will then return to your Pokemon.

Your Pokemon who have completed the Shiny Leaf Quest will be depicted in the image on their Summary Screen wearing the Shiny Crown! 

-- Finding Leaves --

Locating leaves is something of a hit-or-miss process.  Even if you are on the correct route for your Pokemon's Nature and you talk to them there is no guarantee that you will in fact obtain a leaf!   If you do not, simply continue to look. 

Talking to your Pokemon can produce several standard responses with sound and visual indicators, including an exclamation point, smiling face, and musical note, followed by standard messages of condition, mood, or feeling.  These do not indicate that they have found a leaf.  When you actually find a leaf your Pokemon will display a large red exclamation point, followed by a musical note, and then it will dance in a circle before you finally see the message: ". . . . . . .  Oh?  (Name) is holding some kind of strange, Shiny Leaf. . ."

After you receive the above message select the Pokemon Card from the 'X' Menu and then select the Pokemon in the number one position, followed by the 'SUMMARY' button, and you will see in the Summary Screen (the top screen, not the touch-screen) on the left bottom that the label "Shiny Leaf" has been added, and a single gold and sparkling leaf image will appear to the right of this label.


In order to simplify the process of obtaining the leaves the table below lists the Natures by Route.  Simply check the Route that you are on to see what Natures can find Shiny Leaves there.
