Shiny Raikou Pokemon Go is a special Pokemon who will be available for players to catch through a special challenge.
This summer, Pokemon Go players will be participating in a new Global Research Challenge, and it's the key to catching a shiny Raikou. It'll be a community effort involving players at Pokemon Go Fest: Chicago as well as global players from Team Instinct, Team Valor, and Team Mystic from June 13-16.
Team Instinct’s leader, Spark, will be kicking off the Global Challenge soon, Trainers! Remember to work together so you can unlock a week of bonuses!— Pokémon GO (@PokemonGoApp) June 12, 2019

Shiny Raikou Pokemon Go: How to Catch
To unlock the guaranteed Raikou raid, players at Pokemon Go Fest Chicago have to complete a total of 1 million research projects, and players around the world in each of the three core teams will have to complete 15 million research projects.
Each challenge will provide a week of bonuses toward candy and egg hatching, and if all four challenges are completed by June 16, Raikou's raid will be unlocked.
We don't know what day it will be yet, but based on the other two Pokemon Go Fests and their Legendary Beast raids, it will be between June 9 and June 16. Keep posted on the Pokemon Go Twitter to be sure you don't miss it.
At that point, all you have to do is attend a raid to have a chance at a shiny Raikou! Happy hunting.
