In your Ranch you may notice that some of your Pokémon, upon close inspection, are surrounded by a sparkling aura. Many people at GameFAQs.com (noted in the Credits) were able to research and confirm several causes for the occurence of the aura and what the different colored auras relate to.
If your Pokémon meets any of the following criterion it should sparkle with the named hue; otherwise your Pokémon should not sparkle. Supposing you have a Pokémon that has a hue and does not meet the following criterion please contact me.
- Level 100 - Red/Orange
- *Fateful Encounter - Blue/Green
- Level 100/Fateful Encounter - Red/Orange/Blue/Green
*Note: These auras are reproduced with high consistency but are not at a 100% occurence rate. Which is to say, "Not always." Fateful Encounter includes Pokémon that have been purified in XD/Colosseum, obtained at an event, hatched Manaphy eggs, or are from "Lovely Place."
Without confirmation, but subject to suspicion, the following criterion have been, until possible future update, ruled out as a cause for the sparkling aura...
- - Max Happiness
- - Max IV (in at least 1 stat)
- - EV trained
- - With Ribbon
