Shiny Pokemon cards have a distinct glitter or holographic shine to them, unlike regular cards. You'll notice the artwork has a shimmering effect, especially when you tilt the card back and forth under a light source. Also, shiny Pokemon usually have a different color scheme compared to their regular counterparts, making them stand out even more.

Real talk? Just look for that sparkle, dude. If it looks like it might blind you in direct sunlight, congrats, you've got yourself a shiny!

The best way to identify a shiny Pokemon card is by the holographic effect, but also check for a symbol or text indicating its rarity, as shinies are often rare or ultra-rare. Don't get fooled by regular holographic cards; remember, shinies have unique color variations!
