Can Cryogonal Be Shiny In Pokemon GO?

Find out if the rare Pokemon has a shiny form now or not!

December 16, 2021

Pokemon GO is kicking off the holidays with a brand new event that will include a higher chance to catch Cryogonal, but people will want to know if it has a shiny form in the game.

The Pokemon GO Winter Holiday 2021 event kicks off on Thursday, December 16 at 10:00 am local time and is set to run through Friday, December 31 at 10:00 pm local time.

While the event itself is split up into two parts, there are some parts that are both of both across the just over two week event, including the higher chance at getting Cryogonal.

How To Get Cryogonal

Cryogonal was introduced back during the fifth generation games Pokemon Black and White as an Ice type that is literally a snowflake.

As players know, Pokemon GO has gradually been adding different Pokemon over the years, with Cryogonal making its debut in the game back in late 2019 with their own holiday event.

In Pokemon GO, Cryogonal has been a very hard to come upon Pokemon, with them being very rare spawns with a Glacial Lure Module and not really too much else.

The good news with the Winter Holiday 2021 event is that there will be specific event-exclusive Field Research that you can obtain from PokeStops that will reward you with Cryogonal encounters.

This means you need to be completing plenty of Field Research tasks and spinning different PokeStops to come across some of them during this latest event.

Can Cryogonal Be Shiny In Pokemon GO?

The Pokemon Go Winter Holiday 2021 event is including a focus on a lot of different Pokemon with shiny forms, such as Holiday Glaceon, Delibird, Stantler, and more, but unfortunately, Cryogonal does not have one in the game as of this time.

This is something that would have seemed to be perfect timing to introduce to the game with Cryogonal being one of the Pokemon that will be easier to get during the event from the Field Research, but for some reason they decided to hold off.

Perhaps this means we’ll get additional winter-related events in the coming months where its shiny form could debut instead, but for now there is no Shiny Cryogonal in Pokemon GO.
