Trainers, Mega Garchomp and its Shiny version are currently the stars of Mega Raids in Pokémon GO during the Raid Day event. If you’re curious about the shiny rates for this powerful Pokémon, we’ve got the information you need.
The Mega Garchomp Raid Day is a new event in Pokémon GO. During this time, players can battle and catch both the Mega Evolution of Garchomp and its Shiny variant. The event also features free and ticketed bonuses, a new in-game shop bundle, and a Raid Bundle in the web store. It’s an event worth participating in, especially for the bonuses. According to Pokémon GO’s official Japanese Twitter account, Mega Garchomp will still be available in Mega Raids after Raid Day, but the special event bonuses are exclusive to Raid Day.
Now, let’s discuss the shiny rates. The odds of encountering a Shiny Mega Garchomp are boosted, sitting at around 1 in 8, or 12.5%. This gives players a good chance to catch this rare variant during the event.
For those planning to challenge Mega Garchomp, a Level 40 Mamoswine can be a game-changer. With a strong Mamoswine, it’s possible to solo Mega Garchomp and win with about 10 seconds remaining.
