Pokemon GO - Can Galarian Slowpoke and Galarian Slowbro be Shiny?

The latest in a very long list of Pokemon GO events has just started to arrive – an event called “A Very Slow Discovery“.

As you would expect by the name, this event focuses on Pokemon that aren’t particularly blessed with speed.

One such Pokemon is Slowpoke, which is heavily featured in this event, alongside its debuting Galarian form from the Pokemon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra DLC.

As its regular form can be shiny in the game, can you catch a Shiny Galarian Slowpoke in Pokemon GO?

What Does Shiny Galarian Slowpoke and Slowbro Look Like?

Firstly, the main difference between a non-shiny Slowpoke and its new Galarian form is the yellow patch that sits on top of its head.

With the shiny Galarian Slowpoke, it embraces the yellow colouring, switching from its usual pink colour to a vivid yellowy-gold.

Galarian Slowbro, which has a purple patch on its head, follows a similar pattern as Slowpoke. It turns a pale shade of beigey-yellow and the Cloyster on its arm turns a golden colour.

So, Can You Catch Its Shiny Form In Pokemon GO Right Now?

If you’re a shiny hunter, I have the news that you don’t want to hear.

Unfortunately, Niantic hasn’t released this shiny yellow beauty into the game yet and are likely holding it back to get some more Raid Passes off players in the future.

I’m sure they’re well aware people will be spending their Raid Passes on the Pokemon right now, so they can afford to hold onto it for a later time!
