Shiny Abra Pokémon GO will be available for catching on March 15 during the Community Day. While Abra is Generation 1 and has been in the game since the inception, we've never been able to catch a shiny version of Abra before.

The infamous psychic Pokémon will finally receive a shiny version, and you're looking to farm for one, wait until March 15.

Shiny Abra Pokémon GO: Niantic Labs Reveals March Community Day Pokémon

As with every Community Day, players will have a three hour window to catch Abras and shiny Abras which will have an increased spawn rate. If you evolve a Abra into a Alakazam during the event, it will learn a new move which will be revealed at a later date.

Time starts differently depending on your hemisphere. For the Northern Hemisphere, the event starts at 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. And for the Southern Hemisphere, it will start at 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time.

Players have reported different levels of success when it comes to catching shinies during Community Days. But by far, it's the easiest way to catch one, so if you spend enough time farming, you should find a shiny Abra.
