Shiny Pokémon are among the rarest in any Pokémon game. Now, with Pokémon Go surging in popularity, there is an ample amount for players to catch and find! 

Pokémon is a series that is beloved by fans all over the world, and the mobile title Pokémon Go has allowed trainers to catch their favorite critters wherever they are. The game bolsters an ample amount of the same features as the series’ mainstream titles, including shiny Pokémon.

These elusive variants of regular Pokémon are amazing in detail, but they can be a tad challenging to find in the wild. However, if you are on the hunt for shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Go, it’s best to get situated with all the current shiny ‘mons in the game!

What are Shiny Pokémon?

Shiny Pokémon are variants of Pokémon that players will run into throughout their journey, boasting alternate colors that normal ‘mons don’t have. These variants differ as they are rarely found by players, and are special forms that users specifically hunt for within new games due to their rare value.

All Shiny Pokémon in Pokemon Go

There is a staggering amount of shiny Pokémon currently in Pokémon Go. However, Niantic has not added all shiny Pokémon from the mainstream games into Go yet, so we can assume more are coming in the near future.

For your convenience, we will list all the shiny Pokémon separated into the respected regions they first appeared in.

Generation 3 – Hoenn

The last early Pokémon region to receive a modern remake back in 2014, Hoenn is home to some amazing terrain and Pokémon.

Similarly, Hoenn features the Battle Frontier, one of the first true post-game experiences in a main Pokémon game. This was where players could go to see how their team stacks up against some of the region’s best trainers.

Generation 5 – Unova

Generation 6 – Kalos

To the dismay of many trainers, Kalos was just implemented within Pokémon Go – meaning there are no current shiny variants for Pokémon within the mobile game. Hopefully, we see the addition of these forms in the near future.

Generation 7 – Alola

The exotic region that is Alola offers some beautifully designed Pokémon, and all shiny variants within Go are Alolan forms currently.

With a load of shiny Pokémon for players to hunt for within Go, you will never get bored of finding these Pokémon, and more are bound to come soon.
