If you want to get a shiny Umbreon in Pokemon GO in 2022, you’re not gonna have an easy time of it. After all, shiny Pokemon are pretty difficult to find at the best of times. That’s why, in this guide, we are going to discuss how to obtain a shiny Umbreon in this game, and whether it can be shiny at all.
Can Umbreon Be Shiny in Pokemon GO
Yes, Umbreon can be shiny in Pokemon GO in 2022, but matters are not as simple as that might make it seem. You can’t just run into one of them in the wild; in fact, I’ve never run into Umbreon or any Eevee evolution that way. The only way I know of is to catch a shiny Eevee and then evolve it into an Umbreon. Once you manage to get your hands on a shiny Eevee, set it as your Buddy Pokemon, then walk with it for ten kilometers. It’s fine if you accidentally go over. After you do that, evolve the shiny Eevee during the night, and boom, there you have it. If you do it during the night, you’ll end up with a shiny Espeon instead.
So, that’s all nice, but can Umbreon be Shiny in Pokemon GO Raids in 2022? After all, it’s going to feature in three-star Raids from October 27th to November 1st, during the second part of the Halloween festivities. Well, if you take a look at the announcement, you’ll see that Umbreon doesn’t have the three little stars in the top right corner of its icon. That means that you won’t be able to fight and capture a shiny Umbreon in those Raids. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Niantic won’t include it in Raids in the future, but in this event, it’s just not going to happen. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Still there’s a lot to look forward to in the event, so don’t get discouraged.
