Unfortunately, only Shadow Grimer and Shadow Lugia have the chance of being shiny. However, this is the first time in Pokemon GO history that shiny Shadow Lugia will be available to catch!

Just make sure you battle Shadow Lugia in the small window that it will be a Raid boss. Shadow Lugia is in Raids from 10 AM local time on October 28 until 8 PM local time on October 29, giving players just two days to catch one!
