Shiny Ledyba is coming to Pokemon GO during the second week of Mega September, the month long event commemorating the launch of Mega Evolution. Ledyba is one of three Pokemon whose shiny forms are being added to the game for Mega week. Shiny Ledyba will be available in the wild starting Sept. 11.

Shiny Ledyba Pokemon GO: How to Catch

The difference between Ledyba's standard and shiny forms isn't as big as it is for most Pokemon.

Shiny Ledyba has a gold carapace whereas normal Ledyba has a reddish orange one. Shiny Ledian is a little easier to differentiate, because its orange color stands out better from Ledian's bolder red. between Sept. 11-18 Bug-type Pokemon will be spawning more often in the wild.

Making it easier to find Ledyba will also be more likely to spawn in windy conditions because of its secondary Flying typing. It's also a good idea to look for Ledyba in raids, since Pokemon fought in raids have a slightly higher chance of being shiny. During Mega Week two you can also expect to see different shadow Pokemon than usual being used by Team GO Rocket as well as event specific research tasks.
