Similar to shinies in the Pokémon games, Temtem allows you to capture and breed rare, alternately-colored creatures known as Luma Temtem. However, unlike shiny Pokémon, these special creatures often have better stats than their normal versions. That means that not only do they look sleek, but they’re more powerful than regular Temtem. If that’s not a reason to go hunting for Lumas than I don’t know what is.
We’ve rounded up our top tips to help you acquire these uncommon creatures.
A few things to know about Luma hunting

All Lumas have at least three perfect stats known as Single Values (SVs). A typical Temtem’s SVs are randomly generated for each stat ranging in value between 1 and 50 and can only be changed by using rare items. Since Lumas are guaranteed to have at least three maxed out SVs, they tend to be more powerful than their normal-looking variants.

Now you know the odds for coming across Luma Temtem. There are potentially other ways to get these unique-colored creatures, but we’ll have to keep investigating to discover more. Additionally, since the game is still in early access, it’s possible that Luma mechanics could change between now and when the game officially launches.
Train and battle online
If you are okay with some rough edges and the quirks of early access, Temtem provides a monster-catching and training game in a massive online setting that you might find refreshing.
