If you want to know when and how to get a shiny Tapu Koko in Pokemon GO in 2023, we are here to help you. We are going to show you when Tapu Koko is coming to the game and what you have to do in order to catch one, giving special focus to the shiny version. So, let’s begin!
When is Tapu Koko Coming to Pokemon GO
Tapu Koko, both Shiny and otherwise, is coming to Pokemon GO during the upcoming Crackling Voltage event. In fact, it’s going to arrive two days before the event. To be specific, we’re talking January 25th at 10 AM local time to February 1st at 10 AM local server time. That’s according to the post announcing Crackling Voltage, so we can be pretty certain that’s how it’ll pan out. After February 1st, Tapu Koko will be replaced by Registeel in five star Raids. That’s a week for you to bring down and catch one or more Tapu Koko, and that’s just if you’re not out for the shiny version. Speaking of…
Can Tapu Koko Be Shiny in Pokemon GO
Yes, Tapu Koko can be shiny in Pokemon GO. You can easily gather as much from the post we’ve linked above. They say it right there in the title. Plus, if you scroll down to the Raids section and find Tapu Koko, you’ll notice the three sparkles in the top right of its icon. That signifies the existence of a shiny version. Of course, running into a shiny Tapu Koko will probably be very rare. The fact that you’ll only be able to encounter it in five-star Raids only compounds the problem. The only solution to this is to go from Gym to Gym and fight in the highest-level Raids, hoping to score a shiny. May the gods of RNG smile upon you.
