All Shiny Pokemon appearing for the Bug Out event and where to find them in Pokemon GO

Spring is here, and it is hotter than ever. Insects are buzzing around, waiting to be caught (or not). Well, the bugs are not the only ones buzzing, so is the Pokemon GO community.

It is understandable to have an event dedicated to leaves, greenery and life in general, so there is going to be a cheeky event called Bug Out, scheduled to begin on April 12, 2024, and end on April 17, 2024. The entire focus of the Bug Out event are definitely Bug-type Pokemon, and I am really excited to catch ’em all.

How awesome it would be to catch a Bug-type Pokemon, and it turns out to be a Shiny Pokemon? It would be a dream come true. Luckily enough for us, there is going to be an abundance of Shiny Pokemon available throughout the Bug Out event, and there are multiple places where you can encounter them.

As you know, Shiny Pokemon are the most sought after Pokemon forms in the community, and everybody wants to have one in their Pokemon storage so that they can flaunt it to everyone. Shiny Pokemon are different from their regular forms in terms of color palette, plus there is the star dance on the catch screen. That is, if you are lucky enough to encounter a Shiny Pokemon.

Since there are a lot of Shiny Pokemon coming our way during the Bug Out event, I am going to make it easier for you and share which Pokemon can be found, and where they can be found.
