Shiny chao can be purchased from the Black Market, and match the colors of all other purchasable chao, however Shiny chao are lighter in color and have a certain shine to them. Their eggs are also shiny. They are all more expensive than non-shiny chao, and require more emblems than non-shiny chao. They are refered to in their Black Market description as "Moderate Rare Chao." Missing Shiny eggs are the same as the missing non-shiny eggs in any given file. These chao may be bred to produce Shiny Two-Tone Chao, Shiny Normal Chao, and Shiny Jewel Chao.

Shiny Jewel ChaoEdit
Whilst there are many special breeds of chao, one in particular is unique and rather hard to obtain.
Shiny Jewel Chao are unique, which is odd for chao, and their appearance is not at all what one would expect if you took a glance at the parents of the chao. A rare combination of Shiny and Jewel at the same time creates a very odd result. No-one so far as we know knows why this happens, but it just does. Because of this, many, many, people believe that this is a glitch.
You can only get a Shiny Jewel Chao through specific and special breeding. You will have to breed a Shiny Coloured Chao with a Jewel Chao. The Black Market sells Shiny Chao eggs, and you can get a Jewel Chao egg in the Tiny Chao Garden or Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut for the Gamecube. The result of breeding the two chao should be a Shiny Jewel Chao.
Special Shiny Jewel ChaoEdit
There are special breeds of Shiny Jewel Chao, and they are the Transparent Chao, Invisible Chao, and Pseudo Chao. All are Shiny Jewel Chao, but the actual breed you will get depends on the base colour (the colour of its body from birth) of the chao. The Jewel Coat of your chao bypasses this, so what actually matters is that your chao will have some sort of Jewel Coat, no matter what it is! e.g. Gold, Aquamarine and Topaz all work in the same way, but Red, Blue and Green will create different types of chao.
The three Shiny Jewel Chao that have the appearance of an Invisible Chao are Shiny Jewel Lime Green, Shiny Jewel Yellow, and Shiny Jewel Grey. The are all - You've guessed it - chao that are almost entirely invisible. The only visible parts are the eyes, wings and the emotion ball that floats above it. Some people like giving this chao a hat so it looks like a floating item!
Transparent Chao are the most common Special Breed and can be bred from eight different Jewel Chao, so it's no wonder they're the most common Special Breed! As you can probably guess, they are chao with partially transparent bodies. Apart from this, they look like a Shiny Two Tone Chao.
The exact appearance of the Transparent Chao depends on its base colour. But the colour that you see will often look absolutely nothing like its base colour! This has confused many people. The table below shows their individual names and their actual appearance. All of these have Transparent bodies, but some have other properties as well.
|Special Breed name||Looks like||Extras|
|Shiny Jewel Red||Shiny Two-Tone Green||With a Transparent body|
|Shiny Jewel Orange||Shiny Two-Tone Yellow||With a Transparent body|
|Shiny Jewel Green||Shiny Two-Tone Yellow||With a Transparent body|
|Shiny Jewel Sky Blue||Shiny Two-Tone White||With a Transparent body and yellow tint|
|Shiny Jewel Blue||Shiny Two-Tone White||With a Transparent body and blue tint|
|Shiny Jewel Purple||Shiny Two-Tone Sky Blue||With a Transparent body|
|Shiny Jewel White||Shiny Two-Tone White||With a Transparent body and green tint|
|Shiny Jewel Black||Shiny Two-Tone White||With a Transparent body|
There are three Shiny Jewel Chao left, and have been nicknamed 'Pseudo Chao' by fans. The reason for this is that these chao are like the saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover' - Their true appearance is only shown when breeding another chao. Just like Transparent Chao, the appearance depends on their base colour. Once again, here is a table showing their individual names, what they actually look like and a few extras.
|Special Breed name||Looks like||Extras|
|Shiny Jewel Pink||Shiny Two-Tone White||Has mint-green tint. Nicknamed the Mint Chao because of this.|
|Shiny Jewel Brown||Shiny Two-Tone White||Solid counterpart to Shiny Jewel Black. Will look like T-T Normal Chao if it is a Hero Chao, just like T-T White.|
|Shiny Jewel Normal||Shiny Two-Tone Normal||Is actually Shiny Jewel Normal. May not have T-T gene at all.|
