Unfortunately, you cannot catch a shiny Regieleki in Pokemon GO yet. This is because Regieleki only made its Pokemon GO debut recently, on April 9, 2023.

Developer Niantic almost always saves the shiny versions of new Pokemon for a later date, usually the following year after it was released.

Even if you can’t catch the shiny version, you won’t want to miss out on adding this Pokemon to your Pokedex. This is especially the case now that Regieleki it has finally arrived in standard 5-Star Raids.

When Will Shiny Regieleki Come to Pokemon GO?

Niantic has not announced when Regieleki will come to Pokemon GO yet.

Despite this, we expect to see shiny Regieleki debut in Pokemon GO in Spring 2024 at the earliest.

This would mark a year since Regieleki made its debut in the game. However, the shiny version could also release a few months later, in the Summer of 2024, a year after it came to standard 5-Star Raids.

What Does Shiny Regieleki Look Like?

Shiny Regieleki has the same striking bright yellow color as the standard version of the Pokemon.

However, instead of the rings on its body and at the base of its arms being blue, the shiny version has white rings.

This minimal color swap makes shiny Regieleki one of the less exciting shiny Legendaries in the game. Although, any shiny Legendary Pokemon is worth catching!
