Pokémon GO and Shiny Meowth have finally united as a result of Pokémon GO's ever expanding Team Rocket story lines. The language-using Pokémon can now be caught in a Shiny variety, though the visuals for the change are… underwhelming. Here's what you need to know.
Pokémon GO Shiny Meowth Now Available
As Team GO Rocket has increasingly disrupted the lives of Pokémon throughout Pokémon GO, those Pokémon most closely tied to Team GO Rocket have moved into the spotlight. As of Thursday, that's meant Ekans, Koffing and Meowth have all begun appearing more frequently in the wild.
In addition to that increased availability, Meowth can now be found as a Shiny in the wild and in raids.
Shiny Meowth looks almost exactly the same as standard Meowth. The main differences are that its tail, feet and ears are slightly more pink.
The uptick in Team GO Rocket Pokémon availability, and by extension the opportunity to catch Shiny Meowth, is scheduled to last until Nov. 14 at 4 p.m. ET.
