Is there a Shiny Dratini in Pokemon GO?

Pokemon GO featured Dratini in its Spotlight Hour on May 11 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time. In Spotlight Hour, certain Pokemon are more likely to spawn in your area, and some can even catch a shiny version of this Pokemon.

When participating in Spotlight Hour, players could also have received the twice amount of candy during Pokemon transfers. With Pokemon transfers, players could clear space for collecting Shiny Dratini.

Fortunately, Shiny Dratini is available in Pokemon GO. Dratini's Shiny form includes a pink and white color scheme. Although the chances of finding a Shiny Pokemon aren't increased during Spotlight Hour, players should still collect Dratini Candy before finding this Dragon-type Pokemon.

The chances of catching Shiny Pokemon are only raised during Community Day events. However, if you notice Dratini on your map on a regular day, continue tapping on them before you encounter its Shiny form.

Dratini can evolve into Dragonair by using 25 Candy. After evolving into Dragonair, players can then use 100 Candy to evolve their Pokemon into Dragonite. Dratini's go-to moves are Dragon Breath and Return. Dratini is a Tier 1 Raid Boss in Pokemon GO, so players should be at level 15 before battling Dratini in a raid.

Avoid using Dratini against Fairy-, Dragon-, and Ice-type Pokemon.
