The Shining Poms (シャイニングポム Shainingu Pomu?) are one of the mascot monsters in the Legend of Heores series, starting its debut in the Trails in the Sky trilogy.
Shining Poms rarely respawn to defeat farming for higher experience and sepith drops, exceeded only by far stronger monsters and bosses. Due to their small size, they have high dexterity and defense, that all normal attacks are likely to miss and arts damage deal a measly 1 point damage. Yet every hit counts despite its high defenseand great resistance to nearly all Arts and Crafts, until your party is highly levelled.
As regular Poms and other related series, the Shining Pom is nearly identical to a normal Pom, with its only differences are having angel appendages: being shiny, wings on its back and a halo on its head.
