Is Shiny Woobat available in Pokémon Go? The Buddy Up event brings the Bat Pokémon for general release, but not its Shiny Form.

Can You Find Shiny Woobat in Pokémon Go?

The Buddy Up Event features a few Pokémon that evolve with friendship. Besides the normally region exclusive Volbeat and Illumise, Woobat in particular is the most notable addition, as it was previously a Special Research exclusive in February.

The event brings Woobat as a regular Pokémon you can find in the wild, in eggs and as Research rewards. Woobat isn't particularly rare, it just wasn't available under normal conditions for some reason.

Woobat won't be joining the game with a Shiny form. Even with an increased spawn for the event, you won't be able to encounter a Shiny Woobat until another event adds it to the game.

Once an event like Community Day introduces the Shiny form to the game, it will then be available as a Shiny in the wild as well. For now, we'll have to wait.
