If you’re planning to catch a shiny Dialga in Pokemon GO, you’re in for a wild ride. It’s not every day that you get a chance to encounter a regular Dialga, let alone a shiny. Still, it’s possible to get your hands on one, as long as you put in the work. Hopefully, this guide will help you on your way.
How to Catch Shiny Dialga in Pokemon GO
The only way to catch a shiny Dialga in Pokemon GO (and regular Dialga, for that matter), you’ll have to encounter one in a Raid. After all, it’s a terrifyingly powerful, legendary Pokemon; you’re not just going to find it while merrily skipping around. No, you’ll have to work hard to get your hands on any Dialga, let alone a shiny one. Fortunately for you, the Steel-Dragon Pokemon is going to feature in five-star Raids from Friday, July 22nd to Sunday, July 31st, 2022. Plus, there will be a Dialga Raid Hour on Wednesday, July 27th, between 6 PM and 7 PM. So, if you want a shot at a shiny Dialga, be sure to make the most of this weekend and next week.
And, yeah, that’s how you catch a shiny Dialga in Pokemon GO. Use our Dialga Counters, Weakness & Best Moveset guide to help you along; we share a lot of info on how best to battle it there. One last thing we do have to mention is that the odds of encountering a shiny Dialga is very small; that shouldn’t be a surprise, since the same is true for pretty much all Pokemon. So, good luck out there. On the bright side, it’s very easy to tell a shiny from a regular Dialga. While the normal version is all in blues and whites, as if it’s made of ice, the shiny is in various shades of green.
