This will be the first time Shiny Abra will be in the game. Players will be able to catch one after the event is over, but it will be much harder.

Shiny Abra can be caught, hatched from eggs, and obtained through research and raids. Shiny Abra have a slightly lighter yellow color, but can be difficult to discern from ordinary Abra. Shiny Pokemon also appear as normal Pokemon on the map and only reveal their true colors when you click on them.

By being diligent and catching lots of Abras during Community Day, you should be able to come across a few shiny Abras. Don't forget to take a photo of your buddy on Community Day for a special surprise according to the announcement.
