As a Pokemon Go Trainer, you may have experienced the excitement of encountering a Shiny Pokemon. These rare creatures are very rare and capturing one is a truly thrilling experience.
Shiny Pokemon are special variants with alternate colors compared to their regular forms. Their unique appearance, marked by sparkling stars, sets them apart from the usual Pokemon. Pokemon Go Trainers find these rare creatures highly desirable, as catching a Shiny Pokemon signifies both luck and dedication.
Niantic, the developer behind Pokemon Go, has intentionally designed the game to keep Trainers engaged with exciting challenges, maintaining the element of surprise and excitement by intentionally keeping the encounter rate for Shiny Pokemon unknown. Every encounter with a Pokemon has a Shiny rate, which is essentially the probability of encountering a Shiny version.
To spice up the Pokemon Go experience, Niantic periodically introduces events with boosted Shiny rates. During these events, specific Pokemon have their Shiny rates increased, providing Trainers with slightly higher chances of encountering a Shiny version.
