Here’s how to catch Kartana and Celesteela in Pokemon GO and if there are shiny versions of these Ultra Beasts!
Ultra Beasts are some of the most powerful and rare Pokemon so every Pokemon GO player wants to add them to their Pokedex.
Kartana and Celesteela are the fifth and sixth Ultra Beasts to arrive in the game after they made their GO debuts on September 13, 2022.
However, catching them isn’t quite as simple as the Ultra Beasts that came before them.
How to Catch Kartana in Pokemon GO
To catch Kartana, you will first need to beat it in a 5-Star Raid. Then, you will have the chance to catch it.
Check out our Pokemon GO Kartana Raid guide for tips on beating this Pokemon as well as the dates it will be in Raids.
However, Kartana Raids are only available in the Northern Hemisphere at the moment. This means that Pokemon Trainers can only find Kartana Raids in the Northern half of the world.
Make sure to be on the lookout for Ultra Wormholes in Pokemon GO. These signify when an Ultra Beats Raid is going to happen.
Is There Shiny Kartana in Pokemon GO?
There is no shiny version of Kartana in Pokemon GO yet.
Very few Pokemon arrive in Pokemon GO alongside its shiny version so it makes sense that shiny Kartana is not in the game yet. Instead, Pokemon GO developer Niantic releases the shiny version of Pokemon at a later date.
We don’t know when Shiny Kartana will arrive just yet but expect it to be 2023 at the soonest.
