Posted on August 15, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

Shiny Pikachu began to appear in Pokemon GO last week as part of the Japanese Pikachu Outbreak event. Reports are beginning to surface that the same variant is being spotted in other countries as well.

Shiny Pikachu is a slightly darker version of the regular Pokemon. On its Pokedex page, you’ll see sparkles confirming the special catch.
