How to catch a shiny Latias and Latios in Pokemon Go
Shiny Latias trades the red for yellow, while shiny Latios ditches the blue for green. So the pair are equally different in shiny form, and when you complete each raid, you have a 1 in 20 chance of encountering a shiny one, which is the equivalent of 5%. What's even better is that shiny legendaries, including Latias and Latios, have a 100% catch rate, so use a Pinap Berry for maximum candy gains.
