The sheep-like Pokemon Mareep has a bright pink shiny version, but can you get it in Pokemon GO?

Yes, you can catch the shiny version of Mareep in Pokemon GO. However, it is extremely hard to find.

Even if any Mareep you encounter, whether that is in the wild or as a reward, has a possibility of being shiny, the shiny odds are very low.

If you are after the shiny version of this Pokemon, there’s an event you won’t want to miss. The November 2023 Community Day Classic features Mareep, making it the best time to catch the shiny version!

Mareep Shiny Odds

The odds of any Mareep you encounter in Pokemon GO being shiny are 0.2%. This means that, on average, only 1 in every 500 Mareep you find will be the shiny version.

Unfortunately, you cannot increase shiny odds in Pokemon GO. This means that if you want to find shiny Mareep, you’ll just have to keep encountering them until the shiny one appears!

What Color is Shiny Mareep?

The shiny version of Mareep has pink wool, instead of the light yellow wool of the standard Mareep.

Despite this, both types of Mareep have blue faces and feet, black and yellow striped horns and tails, and a bronze ball on the end of their tails.
