Garchomp is a fan-favorite Pokemon, but can it be shiny in Pokemon GO?

Yes, you can get the shiny version of Garchomp in Pokemon GO, but it is not easy. One method requires plenty of Candy, and for the other, you will need to beat Mega Garchomp and a lot of luck.

Here’s a full rundown on how you can get shiny Garchomp, as well as the exact odds of it being shiny!

How to Get Shiny Garchomp

There are two ways to get shiny Garchomp in Pokemon GO. They are:

  • Catch a shiny Gible, evolve it into shiny Gabite and then into shiny Garchomp
    • This process requires a total of 125 Gible Candy
  • Win a Mega Garchomp Raid and hope that you encounter Garchomp
    • There is a 1 in 20 chance of Garchomp being shiny

Of course, it is also worth noting that these methods are not always available. Gible does not always spawn in the wild, and Mega Garchomp Raids will not always be active!

Garchomp Shiny Odds

The odds of Garchomp being shiny after winning a Mega Garchomp Raid are 1 in 64. However, this is the only way you can catch a shiny Garchomp.

You cannot get a shiny Garchomp in the wild or as a reward for Research.

During the Mega Garchomp Raid Day event, the odds of Garchomp being shiny from Raid encounters are boosted!

What Color is Shiny Garchomp?

The shiny version of Garchomp is blue-gray color and has orange and yellow markings on its chest and face.

It is almost identical to the standard version of Garchomp, but the colors on the shiny are less vibrant.
