Shiny Goldeen Pokémon GO will be featured in an upcoming event based around the Lake Trio. Here's everything you need to know to get a Shiny Goldeen.

The Lake Trio Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf will be coming to raids on November 24. You'll have until November 31 to battle them in Raids, but there a variety of other bonuses you can enjoy while they're here.

Shiny Goldeen Pokémon GO Arrives in Lake Trio Event

Pokémon found near or in lakes will appear more frequently. Goldeen is one of them, and the event will let you find a Shiny one either in the wild or from 5km Eggs.

Shiny Pokémon don't appear as Shiny on your map, so you'll have to engage each Goldeen you find. You'll know you've got a Shiny when it has that signature sparkle on the Pokémon and its name. Of course, the Pokémon will be a different color.

Goldeen's Shiny color is a subtle difference from the normal one. It's a lighter shade of orange and yellow, looking more gold than the regular variety.

When it evolves into Seaking, it keeps the golden color on its body but takes on a greenish tint to its fins. Unfortunately, Seaking doesn't fare well in battle compared to many other Water type Pokémon, so finding a Shiny Goldeen will be one for the collection.
