Yes, you can catch shiny Shadow Mewtwo in Pokemon GO. This is despite no other shiny versions of Shadow Legendary Pokemon currently being available.

While the shiny odds for Shadow Mewtwo have not been confirmed, we expect it to be 5%, or 1 in 20. This is because it is the standard shiny rate for Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO.

Of course, to catch a shiny Shadow Mewtwo, you will first need to defeat it in a Shadow Raid. This is much easier said than done, especially considering that Shadow Mewtwo Raids are only taking place on May 28, 2023.

If you want to defeat Shadow Mewtwo in a Raid, you’ll want to weaken it using Purified Gems. Here’s how to get Purified Gems in Pokemon GO, so you can win this challenging battle!
