Shiny Darkrai glitch in Pokemon GO, unexpected glitch costs Trainer a Shiny Darkrai

Trainers, a surprising glitch has emerged in Pokemon GO, shaking the community as the 100% catch rate for Shiny Pokemon during Raids appears to be compromised.

One Trainer experienced a significant setback when attempting to capture a Shiny Darkrai in a Raid encounter, despite using every available strategy. Regrettably, the Shiny Darkrai eventually broke free and fled. The Trainer has provided video evidence of this encounter and has reached out to Niantic for assistance, currently awaiting a response.

The Pokemon GO Halloween 2023 event has entered its first phase, commencing on Thursday, October 19, at 10 AM and continuing until Thursday, October 26, at 10 AM local time. This event promises exciting Shiny encounters and Raid opportunities, with Darkrai taking center stage as the formidable 5-star raid boss. Trainers who emerge victorious in battle against Darkrai have the opportunity to encounter a Shiny Darkrai, making it a highly sought-after addition to their collections.

The Trainer involved in this incident successfully defeated Darkrai in battle and was delighted to see Shiny Darkrai appear on their encounter screen. However, their excitement quickly turned to frustration as Shiny Darkrai repeatedly resisted capture attempts.

ShinyDespite using Golden Razz Berries and Premier Balls, Shiny Darkrai managed to evade capture. The situation took a turn for the worse when the game glitched, resulting in Shiny Darkrai’s unexpected escape.
