Shining Pokémon guide and complete list for Pokémon Go

Shiny Pokémon are extremely rare to catch in any Pokémon game, and Pokémon Go is no different. All players have a chance to catch them, but the chance of this happening is extremely low. You'll know when you'll encounter a shimmering Pokémon, not just for its different colors, but for a unique icon when you catch them.

How to catch shiny Pokémon

There is no precise method for encountering a shiny Pokémon. You won't be able to tell there is one in front of you until you click on it and try to catch it. When you do this, several stars twinkle around the Pokémon. It will not have the same colors as traditional Pokémon. It should have different shades. For example, if you meet a shiny Charmander, it won't look red and yellow, it should have a black outer layer and a yellow stomach.

You have the ability to catch Shiny Pokémon from field research activities. While there is a guaranteed encounter with certain Pokémon, some rarer than others, it doesn't guarantee that it will be brilliant when you encounter it.

Alternatively, you have a better chance of encountering Shiny Pokémon during Community Day events. These are monthly events where a single Pokémon shows up most frequently for three hours on a given weekend. If you fully capture and develop the Pokémon during this event, it has a chance to learn a powerful, previously unknowable move. Since there are so many of the same type of Pokémon spawns during the event, the chances of a bright version being shown increase greatly.

When you catch a Shiny Pokémon and have it in your inventory, three stars will be above their portrait in the upper left corner.

What are the odds of getting a shiny Pokémon?

There is a low chance for any trainer to encounter a Shiny Pokémon. The odds of getting one in the wild are 1 in 450, imagine who ended up The Silph Road by. The chances are a little slim, but it's a rough estimate of how many Pokémon of the same species you'll need to encounter to potentially find a bright version of one.

What are the advantages of a shiny Pokémon?

The only advantage of a shiny Pokémon is having one that looks different. Having a shimmering Pokémon does not give it additional stats or increases the chances of having an extra version. It also adds an additional section in your PokéDex where you can see the original coloring and the bright version.
