Scraggy is a pretty rare and popular Pokemon in Pokemon Go, but can it be Shiny? Let’s find out.

Referred to as the Shedding Pokemon in the Pokedex, Scraggy first appeared in Pokemon Black & White’s Unova region on the Nintendo DS. It then went on to make its Pokemon Go debut in 2020.

If you are desperate for a Shiny Scraggy, though, it hopefully shouldn’t be too long of a wait for it to make its debut, as it’s now been over three years since regular ol’ Scraggy first appeared in the game.
