Is There a Shiny Togedemaru in Pokemon GO?
No, there is not a shiny variant of Togedemaru in Pokemon GO just yet.
Pokemon GO developer Niantic usually saves the shiny versions of new Pokemon for a later date. Therefore, even if Togedemaru doesn’t have a shiny in-game yet, we will almost certainly see it in the future.
However, there are hundreds of other shinies to catch. Check out our Pokemon GO shiny odds guide to find out your chances of encountering shinies in the wild!
Now that you know how to catch Togedemaru, find out how to catch the new Ultra Beasts – Celesteela and Kartana – in Pokemon GO. They won’t be around for long so you should try to catch them as soon as possible.
