Pokemon Go Shiny Shadow Pokemon List 2022

Shadow Pokemon are the ones that are captured by Team Go Rocket and exploited to the maximum by the evil members. They are easily recognizable by their red eyes and dark, flaming auras.

These Pokemon can be saved from Team GO Rocket by engaging in a battle with them and defeating them. The rescued Shadow Pokemon can then later be purified and brought to a more normal state.

As we mentioned before, you can rescue a Shadow Pokemon only by defeating a Team Rocket Grunt or a Team Rocket Balloon, which we all know, appears every six hours.

The best part is that these Shadow Pokemon can be Shiny too, but unfortunately, out of 39 released Shiny Shadow Pokemon in Pokemon Go, only three are currently available in the game.

If you are wondering which Shiny Shadow Pokemon is released, take a look at the list we made.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. Love shiny shadows!!!
    HAve quite a few!
    I just finished getting all three rocket leaders shiny shadows!!
    Of course they are not strong but shadow hunting makes it fun!’
    Go shadows , GO!!

  2. This is a little misleading, you cannot get shiny shadow Pokemon from rocket grunts, only rocket bosses which is why only those 3 are currently available.

      1. But you can see from the comments that those are oddities and messed on Niantics part. You can’t normally get shinies from grunts.

      2. Yeah, but snubbull was never available as a shadow shiny. Also getting shinies from grunts was a mistake and it was quickly fixed

    1. And half of these are the evolutions of ones available to catch. There have t been 39 catchable released.

  3. I have been searching for a Shiny Growlithe for six years. Ever since July 2016 when I started playing I have encountered over 1,200 Wild Growlithe and not ONCE did I encounter a Shiny!!! It is RIDICULOUS Niantic, ABSOLUTELY ridiculous, that you can’t let me encounter even ONE Shiny Growlithe. I have spent well over $1,000/yr on coins to get Remote Raid Passes and Special Event Boxes, etc. So you would THINK they would REWARD someone who provides that much revenue for them. HA!! NOT. EVEN. ONE…..

  4. Got the very rare combo of Shiny shadow and 4* (100% IV level) of ekans evolved to arbok. Anybody else who got such a combo of any shiny shadow pokemon?

  5. Got 3 Shiny Shadow Drowzee’s from Sierra and Shiny Shadow Pinsir from James…also got a shiny shadow Nidoqueen (not on list) from Sierra earlier this year.

  6. I have all forms of seedot (normal, shiny, shadow) so I think I was meant to have the shiny shadow version. My friend caught one of the really cool shiny shadow carvanha, I need me one of thems or a purified shiny sneasel.

  7. 1. Shiny shadow charmander< evolved all the way to charizard. Only purified it it mega evolve (cp-2334)
    2. Shiny shadow squirtle< currently evolved to wartortle (purified for potential trading purposes) (cp-1018)
    3. Shinny shadow seedot< currently evolved to shiftry(cp-1545)
