Catching shiny Pokemon is serious business in Pokemon GO. Some trainers have dedicated quite a few hours to the activity — dubbing themselves "shiny hunters" with some striding toward the end goal of completing the PokeDex with full shiny variants.

To that end, we've compiled a full list of all the shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO at the time of writing: May 22, 2022.

What are the Odds of Catching Shiny Pokemon?

According to Silph Road, the daily chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon is less than 1% (0.2%). Each encounter has a 1:512 chance to result in a shiny Pokemon. However, this probability does increase within specific circumstances in the game. For example, during Community Day events, the chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon can be as high as 4% — 1:25. During Raid events, these odds jump to 1:10 — or 10%.
