Pokemon GO Sizeable Surprises Shiny Hunt

Hunting is fun, but when that hunt involves Shiny Pokemon, it is even more exciting given the rarity of Shiny Pokemon. I think that you can all agree with me on this one.

Starting April 4, 2024, and ending April 9, 2024, Trainers will have the delight to enjoy a new Pokemon GO event called Sizeable Surprises. During that event, there will be a lot of bonuses, small Pokemon and big Pokemon, and the most exciting thing: a lot of Shiny Pokemon.

Shiny Pokemon are known as the rarest Pokemon in the universe, and they differ a lot (not always, though) from their regular form. Shiny Pokemon are usually indicated with starts flying around the catch screen, and through the differences in the color palette between the Shiny forms and regular forms. Be mindful, Shiny Pokemon do not appear as Shiny on the Pokemon GO map.

That being said, I think we can all agree that it is a great opportunity to hop on Pokemon GO and get down to catching all Shiny Pokemon that are coming to the game during the Sizeable Surprises event. But the thing is, where to find them all? Well, they can be found in the wild, in Raids, as Field Research task encounters and Collection Challenges.
