Is there a Shiny Sableye in Pokémon GO? If you were collecting Sableye at the recent Spotlight Hour event, you might have been wondering you would be able to encounter a Shiny Sableye. Luckily, Sableye is available as a Shiny in Pokémon GO.

Is There a Shiny Sableye in Pokémon GO?

Spotlight Hours don't introduce Shiny forms of Pokémon. They also do not give any bonuses for encountering a Shiny Pokémon, so you would have had to contend with the normal one in 450 chance.

Sableye has been available as a Shiny, so you would be able to get one if you were lucky.

Shiny Pokémon don't appear on the map as Shiny, so you'll have to engage each Sableye you find. When you find a Shiny, you'll get a sparkle over the Pokémon and a marker by its name. The Pokémon will also be a different color.

Shiny Sableye is easy to identify. It's all gold instead of purple, and has gold gems for eyes and a green gem on its chest.

If you missed out on Spotlight Hours, you can go hunting in areas where Sableye spawn. Sableye is boosted with the Fog weather, so you can look out for them when the weather is right. You can also find them in Raids. Like wild encounters, Raid bosses won't appear as Shiny until you defeat them and go to catch them.
