You can get Shinies in Little Kitty, Big City in many different ways as you explore the world. There isn’t one best way to collect them, although dumpsters are always a very reliable option as they tend to drop more than one, while most other locations have just one available to collect at a time.

All of the ways I’ve found Shinies in Little Kitty, Big City so far are as follows:

  • Dumpster diving.
  • Lying on the ground.
  • Sitting on top of cars.
  • Opening registers.
  • Digging in recycling cans.
  • In hidden corners.
  • Sitting on top of roofs.
  • Under moveable items like cones.
  • In vents.
  • On top of shelves.
  • Hidden in pipes.
  • Sitting at the end of hard-to-reach parkour spots.

Overall, the best way to collect Shinies in Little Kitty, Big City is simply to go around exploring new areas. You’ll also unlock tons of Catchievements and hats along the way, so all of your hard work earns you more than just Shinies for the Crow in the end.

The Crow needs a total of 25 Shinies to help you out early on, so just keep prowling around the city until you collect enough to bring back to them. There are even more Shinies to be found after this too, so the hunt never really ends.
