Can You Catch Shiny Regieleki in Pokemon GO?

The Legendary Regieleki is making its Pokemon GO debut exclusively in Elite Raids, making it very rare already. But a shiny Regieleki would be even rarer!

Unfortunately, you cannot catch a shiny Regieleki in Pokemon GO yet. This is because Regieleki has only just come to Pokemon GO in Elite Raids 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. Check out our Pokemon GO Regieleki Raid guide so you can easily defeat this boss!

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. After all, this Legendary ‘Mon isn’t even in standard 5-Star Raids yet, so that will come before the shiny version.

In the meantime, you can catch shiny versions of some of the other shiny Regis:

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 color swap makes shiny Regieleki one of the less exciting Legendaries in the game, but it’s certainly a lot better than the disappointing shiny Regidrago.
