    Pok√©mon shiny ones are always in demand. They are rare, alternating color variants compared to regular Pok√©mon. I've been looking for Pok√©mon GO for Shiny and I was lucky enough to get some, so now I'm looking to help you find a bunch of shinies yourself! 

    There are many Pokémon that have brilliant varieties and it is rare to find these special versions, so let's see everything you need to know.

    Shiny Pok√©mon were placed in the Pok√©mon GO as part of Water Festival Event, starting with Gyarados e Magikarp, however, there are new Shiny Pokemon added to the game every event and Community Day.

    Pokémon Glitters can be seen by a glowing icon when they are in your backpack or by the character's name when you face them in the wild. Those Pokémon they don't look shiny when they're presented on the map - only when you select them and try to capture them, they're shiny.

    How often will you find one?

    How often will you find Shiny Pokémon depends on whether there is an active event day. On specific Community Days, where it is announced that you will be more likely to encounter a Shiny Pokémon, there is a higher chance, sometimes as high as 1 in 20. Outside of events, however, it is estimated to be as low as 1 in 500

    You also have a small chance of hatching a Shiny Pokémon - so keep your eggs in your incubators.

    Can everyone in Pokémon GO see Shiny on the map?

    As mentioned before, the Pokemon will not be Shiny in the map view. They will also not be shiny in the ‚ÄúNearby‚ÄĚ display.

    If you encounter a Shiny, he will not appear to the person you are playing with as it is played player by player. This means that the Pokémon you touched, which turned out to be Shiny, will likely not be for anyone else who touches it.

    How do I display my Pokémon GO Shiny?

    You can put your Shiny Pok√©mon in Gyms, as long as it's not a Legendary Pok√©mon (since those can't go to Gyms) and as long as there's not yet a regular version of that Pok√©mon currently defending the Gym. You can make your friend a Shiny by allowing your friends to your friends list check out your cool pokemon.

    Do they have different stats than non-shiny ones?

    Not. Shiny Pokémon have the same stats as their non-Shiny versions, as well as the same attacks and movesets. The only exception is that if you develop specific shinies during the community day event, they will have more unique moves as part of the event.

    Shiny Pokemon that are evolved will retain their Shiny status, so don't be afraid to level up and evolve them.

    You can see all of your Shiny Pok√©mon by going to your Pok√©mon's inventory, tapping the search bar, and selecting SHINY. You may have to click on more options before Shiny appears, though. 

    Keep an eye out for community days to help you get these rare Pokemon and keep catching Pokemon in hopes of finding a Shiny!

    Which Shiny are available in Pokémon GO?

    It is quite challenging to keep track of which Pokémon have Shiny variants in the game, so we've compiled a list. However, as there are so many Pokémon, the list is quite large. Therefore, we decided to put it in alphabetical order. Just click the big blue button below to see if you can find a Shiny version of your favorite Pokemon.
