Every self-respecting Pokemon hunter knows the importance of hunting Shiny. Throughout the entire main series of Pokemon games, we have a total of 88 Legendary and Mythical Pokemon that have been available over the years. 63 of these Pokemon have been present in the Niantic installment of Pokemon Go, which was a mass phenomenon a few years ago, and which today has a large player base all over the world. Let’s take a look at the Legendary and Mythical Pokemon without Shiny forms…
It turns out that the number of Pokemon is further reduced when we see that of those 63, it is a smaller figure that has Shiny forms in Pokemon Go. In this article we will review the Pokemon that have not yet received their Shiny form in Pokemon Go and that so far it seems that they will not have it. The future is unpredictable, let’s take a trip to the past and present of the Niantic delivery.
Shaymin has been available for capture in its celestial form and in the terrestrial. However, despite having remained in several research events at Pokemon Go Fest, we still do not have a Shiny form to hunt down. Sinnoh’s Pokemon is reluctant to have a final form and the community is looking forward to making it available so they can show off their catch.
Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres
The Legendary Bird Trio occupies a spot on this list. While everyone has received their Shiny form, the “Galarian” variations of them still do not have their special shape. That is why, although this trio of birds is difficult to catch in Pokemon Go, if their Shiny forms arrive in the future, it would be a real challenge to fulfill that hunt even being one of the best Pokemon hunters in the world. Would you be up for the challenge?
Cosmog and all its evolutions
Surely you have heard of this Pokemon. It turns out that Cosmog and his evolutions, (Cosmoem, Solgaleo and Lunala), They have been available for quite some time through special research in Pokemon Go.. However currently They do not have a Shiny shapewhich is a real drag on the title if what they are looking for from Niantic is for the most seasoned hunters to have truly tough challenges for the future.
Victini, Keldeo and Meloetta
Does Unova ring a bell? If so, then you will know of the existence of these three unique Pokemon. Of course they are available in Pokemon Go through special research eventsthey still don’t have a Shiny form that they can “sink their teeth into”.
If you’re looking for the only Kalos Mythical Pokemon, then you need look no further. Hoopa is the chosen one. Yes ok It is found in Pokemon Go in its Confined and Unleashed state., it doesn’t have a Shiny version yet. Will it come in the future?
The Armored Mewtwo variation, does not yet have a consistent Shiny form to which we can give our best pokeball. It would undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated additions for the future.
Meltan and Melmetal
Meltan and Melmetal, this couple right now enjoys the title of the only exclusive Pokemon in the world of Pokemon Go. Yes, everything is very nice and so on, but they still don’t have a Shiny version to capture. So it could be said that Meltan and Melmetal are two other Pokemon that do not have a Shiny form in any game in the series. This pair does not stop getting titles, right?
Regieleki and Regidrago
The new Regis of the eighth generation had their own events in Pokemon Go and also very recently after the writing of this article. Although the event is over, it seems that no one had the luxury of having a Shiny version. Will you be the first to get it in the future?
Zacian and Zamazenta
They both start with Z, and they are both dogs that you would like to have to guard the doors of your house. The legendary dog duo from Pokemon Sword and Shield! does not have a Shiny version! While they have had two Raid Battle events in Pokemon GO, players are eager to see them shine in the future. You are?
To end this list, let’s talk about Zarude. This dark/grass type Pokemon was made available in Pokemon GO through a limited research event. And from that she has already rained. When the event ended no one was able to get hold of a Shiny shape of it, so it is speculated that Zarude does not have this improved version of himself. Will it arrive in the next few months?
The list is longer than we would like to admit, we hope that in the future this list will get smaller with new updates bring Niantic to Pokemon Go. What did you think of the list? Do you think any of these Pokemon will be able to boast a Shiny version in a few months? Place your bets!
