Pokemon Go fans are going to have a blast as Niantic is about to add 12 new shiny Pokemon in February’s major events. With the arrival of the Pokemon Go: Johto event, there’s good news for the fans who love Espurr and Deoxys. These Pokemon are going to receive shiny forms along with the addition of new Pokemon. Extreme rare shiny Pokemon differ from the color of their counterparts. While the color swap may be minute or major, catching them will unlock your shiny Pokedex. So, here’s our guide on everything to know about upcoming shiny Deoxys, Espurr, and more in Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go – Shiny Deoxys, Espurr, Celebi, and More
The Pokemon Go Johto event will be live for all the fans from February 26, 9 AM to February 27, 9 PM (Local Time). It is similar to the Kanto event we had last year. And like the Kanto tour, fans will be able to buy two versions of the event as well. Both of the versions are available to purchase for $11.99. Once you’ve chosen a version, you cannot go back to change it. As each version has specific Pokemon choose any of the versions wisely. These are the Pokemon you might encounter in the Gold version:
