The Pokemon Go shiny list include some of the rarest Pokemon in the franchise. And while the main series games have their own methods to obtaining them, it’s honestly a bit easier to find in Pokemon Go.

With Pokemon Go’s constant events, obtaining a Shiny Pokemon is relatively easy and is a huge draw for trainers looking to obtain every Pokemon in their Shiny Pokedex. 

There are hundreds of Pokemon, and Shinies, that can be obtained in Pokemon Go across eight generations and this guide will help trainers catch them effectively and list every single one that can be captured in the popular mobile game.

 How to get shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go shiny list - Aron

If you've been playing Pokemon Go for a long time and never stumbled across a shiny, don't be surprised. The Pokemon Go shiny odds are roughly 1 in 450. This means that every time you tap on a Pokemon to catch it in Pokemon Go - if it has a shiny version - there is a 1 in 450 chance it will be shiny.

However, these odds are dramatically increased on Pokemon Go Community Day to 1 in 25. Community Day happens once a month in Pokemon Go, when a specific Pokemon will flood the streets and appear almost everywhere. Along with the other benefits usually found during Community Day, Pokemon Go shinies become much more popular and you'd have to be considerably unlucky to not find a shiny during Community Day.

You won't know if you've found a shiny Pokemon or not until you tap on it and enter the encounter. If the colour change is subtle, you'll also know you've found a shiny if a bunch of sparks fly out from the Pokemon before you throw the first ball. Once you've caught a Pokemon Go shiny, you can search for "shiny" in your list of Pokemon to show you your full Pokemon Go shiny list.
