Want a shiny Ultra Beast?

Celesteela has been added to Pokémon GO, the latest in the long line of Ultra Beasts to make an appearance. It was added alongside its Ultra Beast counterpart Kartana. Players that want to get their hands on a shiny form of this Pokémon may be disappointed, at least during its initial release. Celesteela is only available in the Southern Hemisphere, while Kartana is exclusive to the Northern Hemisphere.

Celesteela cannot be shiny in Pokémon GO at the time of writing. This is likely to change in the future, but like all other Ultra Beasts that have been added to the game, the shiny version is notably absent. Players should keep an eye out for future events and celebrations, as this is when the shiny form will likely debut.

How do you catch Celesteela in Pokémon GO?

Like the other Ultra Beast added at the same time, Kartana, Celesteela can only be caught in Five-Star Raid battles. This Pokémon can be tough to beat, but with enough trainers battling alongside each other and using a helpful Celesteela Raid Guide, players can emerge victorious.

Celesteela is a Steel and Flying-type Pokémon. The best attackers to bring along in battle are those with Fire and Electric-type moves, as they will deal massive damage to the opponent. This will give players the highest chance of success.
