Can Slowpoke be shiny in Pokemon GO? While the lazy Pokemon was featured in the Psychic Spectacular 2020 Event, he wasn't given a shiny version a few weeks ago, but has that changed recently?

Niantic Labs has done a great job at creating content for players stuck at home during the pandemic. We've seen cheaper items in the store or events that players can participate in the safety of their homes.

While during the Easter event, Niantic Labs added a new shiny Pokemon, Slowpoke was not chosen. Which means, Slowpoke still does not have a shiny version as of yet, but as it seems every Pokemon will receive one eventually, it feels like it's only a matter of time.

If you want, you can look for Shiny Sentret which was only recently added into the game. Otherwise, enjoy the new content Niantic Labs adds to the game every week.
