Upon the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, there was one shiny Pokemon that really stood out – shiny Galarian Zigzagoon.

The Pokemon underwent a huge transformation and became one of the most sought after in the series.

Now, thanks to trainers completing the Team GO Rocket Global Challenge, the shiny Galarian Zigzagoon family is getting a release in Pokemon GO.

Here’s how you can give yourself the best shot at getting one.

What Does The Shiny Galarian Zigzagoon Family Look Like in Pokemon GO?

As I alluded to above, the shiny Galarian Zigzagoon family looks incredible.

Galarian Zigzagoon, Linoone and Obstagoon are known for being dark black, punk-looking Pokemon, however, their shiny forms couldn’t be much more different.

Foregoing their dark stripes and black stars around their eyes, the Galarian Zigzagoon line turns a reddish pink colour and is highlighted with vibrant blue colour.

You can see their Pokemon GO models below.

How Can You Get One?

As always, sadly there’s no hard and fast guaranteed way for players to get their hands on a shiny Galarian Zigzagoon.

There are a few things you can do, however, that will definitely boost your chances. They are as follows:

  • Raid – As part of the rewards for completing the Team GO Rocket global challenge, not only will Galarian Zigzagoon’s shiny form be released, but it will also be appearing in raids. This is a great opportunity to encounter multiple of the Pokemon.
  • Field Research – Both the “Defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader” and AR Mapping tasks offer Galarian Zigzagoon as a reward. Be sure to spin as many stops as possible and complete as many of these.
  • Timed Research – If you’ve not completed your Luminous Legends Y timed research just yet, now’s the time to do it, as you receive two encounters as rewards.
  • Trade – This one might be a little trickier. Should a friend or somebody in your local community get a spare, you can always try and angle for a trade. Just be sure to offer something worthy in return.
