What Are Shiny Pokemon?

Certain Pokemon With Different Color

Pokemon GO Shiny Pokemon Guide List

Shiny Pokemon are the same as their regular versions with a different color scheme. You can sometimes find Shiny Pokemon on your map. They look like their normal counterparts, but turn shiny when you try to capture them.

Rare Spawn That Don't Appear Often

Shinies don't appear in the wild often and are considered rare spawn. You actually have to encounter a Pokemon and enter the capture phase before you'll find out they're a shiny.

Shiny Pokemon Can Sometimes Be Ditto In Disguise

Ditto has the ability to transform into Shiny Pokemon. Therefore, if you encounter Shiny Pokemon in the wild, you may actually get a Ditto if you successfully catch it!

Don't Have Battle Or Stat Advantages

These differently-colored Pokemon don't have any battle advantages or have any stronger statistics. Their advantage solely lies in their aesthetic value.
