There are a total of five new shinies being added to Pokémon GO, all of which are from the Sinnoh region. All 5 of these Pokémon are obtained either through finding them in unique habitats, or in certain eggs. Here are all the new shinies in the Pokemon GO Tour Sinnoh: Global event as well as how to get them:

  • Pachirisu (10km Egg)
  • Chatot (10km Egg)

  • Chingling (2km Egg)

Of course, players are only able to find and hatch these Pokémon during the event, but that’s not all. Additionally, there will be new one-, three-, and five-star raids for players to discover during certain habitat hours. These raids introduce iconic Pokémon from the Sinnoh region and even give you the opportunity to catch their shiny variants if you’re unlike me and are lucky enough. And for trainers who want to spend some real money, there is a paid masterwork research ticket, allowing players to work their way to finding a shiny Shaymin.

But if you don’t feel like a shiny Shaymin is something you want, there will also be a free research story where you’ll need to help Team GO Rocket out of a pickle. Furthermore, there will be a Diamond and Pearl badge you’ll be able to select during the event to grant you bonus rewards exclusive to each badge. Finally, activating a non-daily incense will attract certain Unown letters with the chance of finding a shiny variant.
