Can Virizion be Shiny in Pokemon GO

Yes, Virizion can indeed be shiny in Pokemon GO. You can it apart from the regular version fairly easily, assuming your color vision is fine. See, the normal Virizion is bright green, as you can tell from the image above. On the other hand, the shiny variant is a light, pinkish red. Also, the stripe on its head is a dark shade of purple instead of gray. So, yeah; a fairly obvious difference. That said, don’t expect to have an easy job of it. The odds of scoring a shiny Virizion are as low as any other special creature. To make things worse, you always need to emerge victorious from a five-star Raid to event attempt to catch one.

So, yeah, while Virizion can be shiny in Pokemon GO, it’s pretty tricky. You first have to wait for the Pokemon to start appearing in five-star Raids, which happens once in a blue moon. That said, it will be starring in these raids from December 1st to December 8th, 2022, so be sure to mark your calendars. Also, check out our Pokemon GO Virizion Counters, Best Moveset & Weakness guide for tips on how best to defeat it and which moveset to go for. Be sure to fight in as many Raids as possible in order to increase your chances of bagging a shiny Virizion. Purchase items as necessary, especially stuff for healing and the like. I wish you the best of luck.
