Pokemon Go Shiny Pokemon and Their Boosted Shiny Rate For September 2022

A Shiny Pokemon is the epitome of happiness, at least that is what I have heard since Shiny Pokemon are very hard to find in Pokemon Go.

A Shiny Pokemon is the better-looking sibling of the regular form of a Pokemon, and due to the different appearance and the fame it has, many Trainers desire to have a collection of every Shiny Pokemon that exists in Pokemon Go.

But how would I know if I have gotten a Shiny Pokemon? The first indicator that you have encountered a Shiny Pokemon is when you click on a Pokemon that you see on your map screen, are the golden small stars that appear almost immediately after clicking on the Pokemon. Of course, that Pokemon has to have a Shiny form available in Pokemon Go. The second indicator is the color palette. If you notice something different in the colors of the Pokemon, well, then the chances are that you are seeing a Shiny Pokemon.

Now, Niantic is making all of this a bit easier for Trainers by boosting some Shiny forms, meaning that there are increased chances of encountering the “chosen” Shiny form because as I mentioned, they have boosted chances of being encountered in the wild. The higher the Shiny rate, the bigger chance a Trainer has to encounter a Shiny Pokemon in the wild.
