Yes, you can catch a shiny version of Noibat in Pokemon GO. However, there is only a very small chance of each Noibat you find being shiny!
While you can sometimes find a Noibat in the wild, the best way of getting a Noibat is by hatching one from a 10km Egg.
Even if it is possible to encounter Noibat in the wild, by far, the best time to catch one is during the Pokemon GO Noibat Community Day.
As a featured Pokemon, the number of Noibat spawning during this Community Day will be greatly increased. Not only does this allow you to earn more Noibat Candy, but the more Noibat you encounter, the more likely you are to find a shiny one!
Check out our Pokemon GO shiny odds guide to find out the exact chance of encountering a shiny Noibat!
What Color Is Shiny Noibat in Pokemon GO?
Shiny Noibat is teal-green in color, and its wings, nose, and details on its ears are black. This makes it very different from the standard Noibat, which is pink and purple.
This unique coloring makes it a very popular shiny, and one that every shiny hunter will want to catch!
Meanwhile, the shiny version of Noivern, Noibat’s evolved form, is a brighter green and has black, purple, and red details on its body.
As Noivern is one of the top 10 rarest Pokemon in Pokemon GO, its shiny version is especially sought-after!
How to Get Shiny Noivern in Pokemon GO
The only way to get a shiny Noivern in Pokemon GO is by evolving a shiny Noibat. You cannot catch one in the wild or following a Raid battle.
To evolve a shiny Noibat into a shiny Noivern, you will need a whopping 400 Noibat Candy!
Here are the fastest ways to earn more Candy in Pokemon GO so you can collect 400 quickly!
