A Pokemon Scarlet & Violet player has offered an effective tip to aid in ensuring encounters with the elusive authentic Poltchageist form.
The Teal Mask DLC in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet has introduced a new convergent Pokemon, Poltchageist, building on Gen 8’s Sinistea and based on matcha green tea powder. Like Sinistea, Poltchageist can be found in two distinct forms: Unremarkable Form and Masterpiece Form. These forms are notably difficult to distinguish from one another, with the Masterpiece form notably rarer.
A trainer in Scarlet & Violet has discovered a practical method that allows trainers to ensure an encounter with an authentic Poltchageist, though it demands some effort.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trainer shares Effective Poltchageist Mass Outbreak Tip
According to SBCoop, if trainers have completed the Pokedex but still see a question mark on the map indicating a Mass Outbreak where Poltchageist resides in Kitakami, it is highly probable to be an outbreak of the authentic form.
Furthermore, trainers can manipulate the Switch’s date and time settings to reset Mass Outbreaks. This results in these specific outbreaks with a dose of patience and endurance.
This technique isn’t restricted to just Poltchageist and Sinistea. It can operate with any Pokemon that possesses multiple forms, including Tatsugiri and Maushold.
This strategy is also highly effective for Shiny hunters, considering Mass Outbreaks have an increased probability of delivering Shiny Pokemon.
Utilizing this method, trainers can nab an incredibly rare Shiny authentic Poltchageist. To offer some context, the odds of running into a Shiny authentic Poltchageist in a natural setting might be as scarce as 1 in 65,536 spawns.
Needless to mention, players who manage to catch one can claim some serious bragging rights.
