Yungoos, the stray Pokemon from Alola, can be found in the wild Pokémon Go. yes, Yungoos can be shiny Pokémon Go!
Yungoos and its evolution, Gumshoos, are primarily “dex-filler” pokemon. As their region’s respective early game “pests” or rodents, they won’t see much action in raiding or anything like that. At least they have a cute shiny pink shape!
What is the shiny rate for Yungoos in Pokémon Go?
According to old research from the now-defunct website The Silph Road (via the Wayback Machine ), the shine rate for Pokemon on a regular day is roughly one in 500. Yungoos is not a confirmed Pokemon that gets a “permanent boost” (meaning it’s a rare spawn and thus gets an increased shine rate).
What can I do to attract more shiny Pokemon?
Not much, unfortunately. It seems to be random chance. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are set by developer Niantic, and they usually only increase during special events like Community Days or Safari Zones, or in Legendary Raids. There are no consumable items that increase the shiny rates of Pokemon.
Where can I find a list of available shiny Pokemon?
