If you want to catch a shiny Skorupi, make sure you don’t miss the Pokemon GO Skorupi Incense Day on October 21. This is because Skorupi will have boosted shiny odds during this event!
What Color is Shiny Skorupi?
The shiny version of Skorupi is bright red instead of the standard version’s purple. However, the eyes are blue, and the claws are white on both shiny and standard Skorupi.
This bright new color scheme makes Skorupi’s shiny version a Pokemon that any trainer would want to catch!
Meanwhile, the shiny version of its evolution, Drapion, is a dark pink or purple-red color.
