This one I didn’t “catch”; I actually got a shiny Smoochum in a friend’s egg and evolved it.
I’ve only come across 2 Riolus since I started playing and one was shiny, so I’ve evolved it.
This one was caught during a raid for a special event; it’s got a cute party hat.
It is shiny and it also is purified! As soon as I’ll have enough candies, I’ll evolve it to a Salamence.
I’ve never seen this one before, neither in a raid or in the wild; a friend had it and I was lucky to get it.
More than a half dozen raids and I couldn’t catch a single Cobalion, it came back during peak COVID, so this was a lucky trade.
I couldn’t do raids while Tornadus was the one featured but luckily a friend of mine had it available for trade.
It’s a lucky one that can be evolved for free if it is traded to you; so I got one.
Eevee is one of my favorite creatures; if getting a shiny is rare, getting an evolution you want is even more.
I love this Pokemon; when it comes to defeating the Team Rocket’s bosses; Giratina is always in my lineup.
I almost transferred this one as the shiny Elekid is so similar to its non-shiny version.
My first shiny ever and the one I probably regret evolving as the orange shiny Shelder looks great.
I miss the days when at the end of 7 days special research you would get a legendary Pokemon; I got to shiny Kyogre in a row.
One after I did 7 raids, caught one on my first ball then nothing; I was disappointed until I realized the only one caught was a shiny.
This was my first raid in a while; I’ve seen another shiny one and I thought the black color was amazing.
I was meeting a friend for a lucky trade and we decided to do a raid which resulted in capturing this shiny Registeel.
This shiny evolution keeps the Magikarp red we all know and love.
Shiny and alolan makes this trio very memorable.
Getting the 400 candies to evolve this one was well worth it.
I just really like this tiny shiny Bellossom.
Latios and Latias are very similar dragons to the point that they almost look like a shiny version of the other.
Their shiny variants are using basic color schemes like they are which is a nice set.
They’re also matched perfectly; blue/green and red/yellow which are the colors the closest to their original forms.
The same you strive to get both of them when you get one shiny, you want to get the second one.
I just really like how the shiny Dusknoir looks.
The golden cobra is definitely standing out from its purple non-shiny counterpart.
Blue instead of red flames makes all the difference and it’s a fine color scheme.
Hatched in an egg during a special event; the party hat makes everything better.
