Can Mantine be Shiny In Pokémon GO, How You Can Catch

Mantine's Shiny and standard color schemes are fairly similar. Shiny Mantine is a slightly more vibrant shade of blue than regular Mantine and its underside is light blue instead of light purple.

Aside from the event-based spawn increase, there are other things that you can do as a player to increase your chances of finding a shiny. First, try going out to look in Windy or Rainy weather. Mantine is a Water and Flying type so, due to the weather boost mechanic, its spawns will be increased in rainy and windy weather. You should also try to focus on finding it in raids. Pokémon fought in raid battles have a slightly higher than normal chance of being shiny, so you should try to challenge Mantine in raids as often as possible.
