Shiny Pokemon are the most wanted Pokemon in the mobile game Pokemon Go. These creatures are rare to find, which makes them even more wanted. Niantic and Pokemon Go are sometimes generous with the community and boost the shiny chances for specific Pokemon. In January 2023, 28 shiny Pokemon are permaboosted, and you can find the complete list below.
Shiny Pokemon are well known for their rarity in the game, because they are extremely hard to find, especially in the wild. They have a different look than their regular version, making them special and a real piece to have in the Pokedex.
We mentioned that they look different than their regular version. What we mean by this is that Shiny Pokemon have a different color palette, and have that famous star floating sign that indicates that the Pokemon you have encountered is a Shiny one.
Being one of the rarest forms to appear in the wild, Shiny Pokemon are very hard to find, but the good thing is that some of them sometimes have an increased shiny rate.
Now, what’s even more interesting is the fact that there are some Pokemon with an increased shiny chance permanently. Yes, that’s true, permaboosted shiny Pokemon do exist, and thanks to our beloved Pokemon Go community, we now have the list of all Pokemon with permanently increased shiny chances in January 2023.
The chances of encountering permaboosted shiny Pokemon are 1 in 64.
