Update: Trainers, it seems like Niantic and Pokémon GO changed Shiny Zorua odds. The odds of encountering Shiny Zorua are now 1 in 200, or 0.5%.

Previous Story: Shiny Zorua has made a spectacular debut in Pokémon GO, taking center stage in the Halloween 2023 Part 2 event. Its appearance shiny rate has been boosted, adding an extra layer of excitement to the festivities. To encounter Zorua, pay close attention to your buddy Pokémon on the overworld map. Zorua mimics the appearance of your current buddy. For instance, if you have a shiny Rayquaza as your buddy, you’ll notice a shiny Rayquaza popping up on your map. Upon capturing this decoy, a message reading “Oh?” will appear, revealing the true identity as Zorua.

Originally, Zorua was planned to be a surprise addition to the Pokémon GO universe. However, due to a glitch during the Shuppet Spotlight Hour, Zorua appeared earlier than intended. Niantic has since resolved this issue, allowing players to encounter Zorua through its designated mechanics.

As part of the ongoing Halloween event, players have an increased likelihood of encountering Shiny Zorua. The estimated odds for a shiny encounter are approximately 1 in 60, translating to around a 1.7% 1 in 200, or 0.5% chance. Given these favorable statistics, participating in this event could be a golden opportunity to add a new shiny Pokémon to your collection.

To wrap things up, Zorua comes as a reward for finishing the Halloween 2023 Part 2 Timed Research, providing another chance to get this Pokémon.
