Can Flying Pikachu Be Shiny?

Yes, Flying Pikachu can be shiny in Pokemon GO, so be sure to catch as many of them as you can during the May 2022 Air Adventures event (and any other chance you get). Just like any other version of Pikachu, the Flying Shiny is a darker color than the usual yellow, trending more towards orange. So, it’s not too hard to tell the difference. That said, the Pokemon Air Adventures event is not a Spotlight Hour. The shiny version of Flying Pikachu is not going to be spawning any more often than usual; your odds of catching one are the same as every other day. So, be sure to prepare adequately and sacrifice whatever the gods of RNG demand of you.
