This year's edition will feature a special event Lapras wearing a scarf, the Legendary Pokémon Tapu Fini, Mega Blastoise raids, and more. With the Water Festival arriving just in time for summer, there will be new shiny Pokémon entering the game for the first time. Will Binacle be one of them?

Is Binacle Shiny in Pokémon GO?

Binacle made its debut into the franchise in Generation VI, as a Rock/Water-type Pokémon. Due to being introduced in a later generation of the game, it didn't make its way into Pokémon GO for some time, appearing first in April of last year. Fans have been waiting since then for a shiny version to appear in the game.

Binacle will be making its shiny debut into Pokémon GO with the arrival of the Water Festival event. Its inclusion marks just one of many featured Pokémon that have the opportunity to be found as shiny variants.
