There are hundreds of Pokémon to catch in Pokémon Go, and many of them have brilliant versions that are also available. The shiny version is a significantly rare variant of a Pokémon. At the same time, these Pokémon do not receive any significant increases in their stats and their unique appearance makes them a good way for players to brag about their achievements to others or to use them in PvP battles. Among the many shimmering Pokémon available, can you catch a shimmering Alolan Meowth in Pokémon Go?



We can confirm that the version of Alola Meowth in Pokémon Go has a glossy version. So, if you are looking to catch this version in the mobile game, there is a chance that you may find it in the wild. Like other Pokémon in the game, there is a one in 425 chance of it appearing naturally in the wild, with a one in 20 chance of it being a shiny version if you defeat it in a raid.

Also, even though it appears as a Pokémon Spotlight Hour, the standard one with 425 odds doesn't increase, but you have a higher chance of potentially finding one because there are more spawns.

The bright version for Alolan Meowth was released in June 2019, so it's been around for a while. If you haven't received one, there's a good chance you can catch one whenever it appears during Events or a Featured Hour if it's featured.
