• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Do you have any Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Go?

I actually managed to capture a shiny Trapinch while heading down to spend the day elsewhere in my state today. I know it was a community day but I'm still shocked that I managed to get a shiny from it as I rarely do, and am super amazed I managed to capture two different shiny Pokemon in the same day. It was a great day imo.

I just caught a Shiny Mimikyu Costume Pikachu this morning. I think that this is the second time I've found a special event Shiny Pikachu, or third if we count the Shiny Santa Hat Pichu I hatched ages ago. I apparently have good luck finding Shiny Pikachu in Pokemon Go. I'm still hoping that I'll find some more Shiny Pokemon during the event considering that so many of the Ghost and Dark type spawning have Shiny forms available, but I'm pretty happy with getting a Shiny Mimikyu Costume Pikachu. It's kind of strange since I couldn't find any Mimkiyu Costume Pikachu around me for the first few days of the Halloween event, but now I have a few on top of the Shiny one.

I found a shiny Alolan Rattata on Monday while waiting on line to buy something at work. Wasn't really paying much attention, just clicking on whatever was in the area so I could hit the 108 captures. Glad I noticed when I dropped my head that it was red in color so I'd made sure to catch it.

I hatched a second Shiny Sneasel earlier this week. I was admittedly a bit disappointed that I couldn't find any other Shiny Pokemon during the Halloween event. I really wanted to find a Shiny Houndour, Poochyena or Gastly, but finding another Shiny Sneasel egg is still pretty neat. Plus, it does give me a bit of hope that I'll eventually be able to run into those other Shiny Pokemon if I'm lucky enough to get two Shiny Sneasel.

I decided to take a walk to Dunkin today despite it being pretty cold out and windy too, because it's a good excuse to be away from work for 20 minutes round trip. On my way to Dunkin I ended up coming across this. Like other shinies I've found I almost didn't realize because it doesn't look too different immediately so thank goodness for the stars by the name.


This is at least the 3rd shiny I've found on my way to or back from this Dunkin so it seems like it is a really good path to walk on.

I’ve been catching lots of Koffing whenever I have the chance (partially to try for a shiny, partially to save up candies for Galarian Weezing), but ironically, my dad caught me my shiny Koffing tonight when he was on my account!

I found my second Shiny Chikorita yesterday. Out of all of the Community Day Pokemon, I think Chikorita is the only one where I've found Shiny forms outside of Community day. I'm still hoping that I'll eventually be able to evolve it to Meganium to learn Frenzy Plant, but it's cool that I found two Shiny Chikorita. I also found a Shiny Makuhita just earlier this morning. I've been looking for a Shiny Makuhita and Meditite for ages, so I'm glad that I found at least one of them.
