Yes, you can catch the shiny version of Tangela in Pokemon GO. However, encountering one is very rare.
The exact odds of encountering shiny Tangela is 1 in 500 – the standard shiny odds for Pokemon GO. This means that, on average, you will need to encounter 500 Tangela before you find the shiny version.
Despite the low shiny odds, the best time to catch shiny Tangela is during the Pokemon GO Tangela Spotlight Hour. This is because the amount of Tangela spawns will be significantly increased during this event – and the more Tangela you encounter, the more chances you have of finding a shiny one!
What Color is Shiny Tangela?
The shiny version of Tangela is a bright green color, instead of dark blue.
This drastic color change makes it very different from the standard version of this Pokemon, even if both versions share orange feet and big white eyes hidden underneath vines that cover its body.
The shiny version of Tangela’s evolution, Tangrowth, also shares this bright green color scheme. This makes it another shiny you’ll want to catch.
How to Get Shiny Tangrowth in Pokemon GO
The only way to get a shiny Tangrowth in Pokemon GO is by evolving a shiny Tangela. This is because you cannot catch Tangrowth in the wild.
To evolve shiny Tangrowth into shiny Tangela, you will need 100 Tangela Candy and a Sinnoh Stone.
