Shiny Porygon has just been added to Pokemon GO for September's Community Day event. The fan-favorite Pokemon beat out Charmander, Caterpie, and Grimer to become the featured Pokemon for this month in the poll Niantic released to fans via twitter. The second-place winner, Charmander, will be featured in next month's Community Day event. On Sept. 20, players will see more spawns of Porygon as well as its shiny form for the first time.

Shiny Porygon Pokemon GO: How to Catch

Shiny Porygon is blue with a purple beak, tail, and feet, as are Porygon 2 and Porygon Z. With the increased spawns of Porygon on the 20, it's just down to luck whether or not you'll be able to find one. That said, normal types do tend to spawn more often in partly cloudy weather. Raid Pokemon also have a slightly higher chance of being shiny so go for raids as much as possible. The items needed to evolve Porygon into Porygon 2 and Z, an Upgrade and a Sinnoh Stone, will apparently be provided as Timed Research rewards during Mega September (please link mega September article here) as well as rewards for the paid Community Day research. Porygon 2 evolved into Porygon Z during this time will know the new charge move Tri-attack.
