Here’s Every Shiny Pokémon Available To Collect In Pokémon Go


It’s almost hard to believe that Pokémon Go is fast approaching its third anniversary.

The AR-powered sensation first booted online back in July of 2016, and since then, it’s grown immeasurably – so much so, in fact, that Nintendo and The Pokémon Company recently notched $2 billion in revenue from mobile games. Sure, Shuffle Mobile, Pokémon Duel, Pokémon Quest, Pokémon: Magikarp Jump, and Pokémon TCG Online all contributed to that overall cume, but that vast majority can be traced back to Pokémon Go and its legions of trainers across the globe.

To their credit, developer Niantic has added a series of endgame features to ensure players keep logging back into Pokémon Go long after they’ve reached level 40 – i.e. mini-events like the Community Days or the soon-to-be-released Legendary Lunch Hour.

Another bonus is the coveted Shiny Pokémon, which are added into the mobile game periodically. But we’ve come a long way since players were just roaming the lands in search of Magikarp and Gyarados – now the vast majority of critters are available to collect:

Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur
Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard
Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise (plus costumed variants)
Caterpie, Metapod, Butterfree
Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Pidgeot
Rattata, Ratticate
Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu (plus costumed variants and Alolan Raichu)
Sandshrew, Sandslash
Nidoran (F), Nidorina, Nidoqueen
Cleffa, Clefairy, Clefable
Psyduck, Golduck
Growlithe, Arcanine
Geodude, Graveler, Golem
Ponyta, Rapidash

Those rare, variant-colored Pokémon are certainly hard to come by, but now that Niantic has added so many, it shouldn’t be too long before you encounter a shiny version of your favorite companion.

As you’ll no doubt be able to notice, these shiny Pokémon are pulled from the early generations of Nintendo’s series, so don’t be expecting Grookey, Scorbunny and/or Sobble to be added into the mix anytime soon – at least not until Sword and Shield touch down later this year.
