Shiny Pokémon of Destruction!

Shiny Pokémon are some of the most sought-after in Pokémon GO. While there are many shiny Pokémon to hunt down and collect, obtaining shiny variants of Legendary Pokémon can be much trickier. These Pokémon are only around during certain events and usually only last for a limited time. With Yveltal's reintroduction to Pokémon GO, many trainers are wondering if this Pokémon can be shiny.

How do you catch a shiny Yveltal in Pokémon GO?

Shiny Yveltal will make its Pokémon GO debut during the Fashion Week 2022 celebration in Pokémon GO. This is certainly not the only time that players will get the chance to catch a shiny form of the Destruction Pokémon, but will likely be the easiest. When Yveltal is in circulation in Pokémon GO, it is sure to make an appearance in Five-Star Raid battles, so players hoping to get ahold of one should keep an eye out.
