Pokémon GO: List of Available Shiny Pokémon

Who said that Shiny Pokémon weren't available in Pokémon GO? Since March 2017, trainers around the world have been recording these glittering pocket monsters — here you can see some examples!

Please note, however, that Shiny Pokémon shiny only appear for one trainer — for example, if one player captures a golden Magikarp and another player clicks on the same Magikarp, it will not be golden.

Shiny Pokémon are not recognizable until you click on them and the capture screen appears. Be sure to click on all Pokémon that are likely to be shiny!

How to capture Shiny Pokémon?

At the moment, no official techniques are known. Some trainers have explained that you need to capture the same Pokémon in a chain in order to hope to find a shiny, but this has not yet been officially confirmed.

In addition, Pokémon defeated in Raids have a 1/50 chance of being a shiny during capture (based on a simple rumor). Feel free to send us your tips for shiny hunting!

Here are some examples of Shiny Pokémon you can find on your adventures.

Note: See our special guide for a list of Shiny Alolan Pokémon!
