What’s the Rarest Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go 2022

A Shiny Pokemon is what we call a rare creature in the Pokemon GO community. The Shiny version of a Pokemon is extremely hard to find in the wild, and that is what makes it even more special. There are a lot of Shiny Pokemon currently released in the game, but some of them are very rare or almost impossible to find. Here is a list of the rarest Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go in 2022.

Firstly, when you encounter a Shiny Pokemon you will see stars appearing on the catch screen in a swirl-type of motion. The second difference between a Shiny and a Regular form is their color palette. A Shiny form has a slightly (or even completely) different color palette than its regular form, making it even more interesting to have it in your Pokedex collection.

Unlike everything else, there isn’t a special trick on how to encounter one, but, here is a list of the rarest Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO.

  1. Who and when did you last see pokemon go?
    Shiny granbull is dumb easy. Most the pokemon on your list arent at all hard to get shinys of. Pikachu is harder than 1/3 the pokes names.and it is 1/3 the pokes named. So dumb.

    1. The rarest pikachu costume is the rockstar and the popstar. No one in my community has the shiny version.
      The shadow i dont care about, as I stopped battling team rocket after NOT getting my shiny deino in over 200 12km eggs, and many many raids, researches and wild spawns. I just got it on Christmas, research breakthrough was greatly gifting me.

  2. Shiny celebi was guaranteed to players who payed for an event. I have an 100% IV shiny celebi. And know that many more people do as well. None of the shiny shadows on this list have even been released into the game. This list was obviously made by someone who doesn’t play pokemon go. It is not accurate.

  3. I wouldn’t consider shiny Celebi that rare since it was a guaranteed encounter during the jungle event, so anyone who played at that point in time have one.

    1. I have a shiny castform its the water version i didnt even know it could be a shiny so i feel that it is really rare cause i havent seen anyone with it not even on our discord

  4. I have 140 shiny pokemon.
    My rarest one would be druddigon and celebi but I have more that are rare to many to mention.
    My name on go is whilywhil

  5. I recently own 48 shiny this game is amazing and challenging but so much fun specially when you encounter a shiny one
