Can Primal Kyogre & Groudon be shiny in Pokémon GO?
Primal Kyogre and Groudon can be shiny when encountered, and if players already have shiny versions of these Pokémon, they can revert them into their Primal forms to obtain the shiny Primal variants. The chances of encountering a shiny version do not appear to be boosted at the time of writing, but these Pokémon could be featured in future events where chances are increased.
