The Shiny version of a Pokemon is very hard to find, and that makes the Shiny Pokemon 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. Many players want to know what is the rarest Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go, so we decided to dig deeper to find the correct info.
You may be asking yourself, how will I know which Pokemon is a Shiny one? Well, we got you covered. 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 fully) different color palette than its regular form, making it even more interesting to have it in your Pokedex collection.
In Pokemon Go, Shiny Pokemon can be encountered in the wild, when hatching Eggs, from Raids, Special Research Breakthroughs, via Field Research, or during in-game events.
It all comes down to random luck because the Shiny Pokemon are very rare and there is no way that one can boost the chance of finding a shiny Pokemon. That being said, it’s all about RNG and probability.
