Pokemon Go How To Find and Catch Shiny Pokemon

When someone mentions a Shiny Pokemon, I get a violent headache. Flashbacks of failed encounters, and while there are not many of them, I still shed a tear or two for the fallen soldiers.

Shiny Pokemon are known as Pokemon that are extremely hard to find anywhere, let alone as a wild encounter. Shiny Pokemon do not appear as Shiny Pokemon on the map, so you have to click on a Pokemon and see if stars appear on the catch screen.

The big question is: How to find them?

There isn’t any concrete way of finding them, something like tricks, and the only advice on how to find them is just to click on every Pokemon you spot on your catch screen. Shiny Pokemon are different from their regular form by the color palette, and they have stars floating around them on the catch screen in Pokemon Go. A Shiny Pokemon can appear anywhere: in the wild, in Eggs (hatching them), Research task rewards and in Raids.

If you want the Shiny form of a certain Pokemon, all we can say is focus on that Pokemon, click on as many as you can (if you want a Magikarp, click on every Magikarp you see on your map) and hope that someday, you will encounter a Shiny Pokemon.
