Everyone is excited about the recent revelation of Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Now we use this page to keep track of the Shiny Pokemon Pokedex in Pokemon Go with Niantic adding a new icon to the Pokedex to let players know when they have caught a shiny.
At the time of writing, there are only two shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go. These are Shiny Magikarp and Shiny Gyrados when evolved – details on how to catch here.
As you can see from the image below, you will now see a new icon on the Pokedex which looks very cool indeed letting you know when you have got a Shiny version and if they are male or female as usual.
We can also tell you that there will not be a new entry number on the Pokedex for a Shiny Pokemon, it will remain the same number but obviously you will be able to see the distinct colour differences when you catch one.
We will keep track of when Niantic release more Shiny Pokemon into Pokemon Go and remember Magikarp and Gyrados were not announced – so it could happen when you least expect it!
Keep checking back to find out when more Shiny Pokemon have been found. Let us know if you spot any new ones that we don’t know about!
