Is There A Pokemon GO Shiny Bounsweet Release Date?
Niantic has not announced when shiny Bounsweet will come to Pokemon GO yet. However, we expect it will come to the game during Spring 2024 at the earliest.
In most instances, Niantic releases shiny versions of new Pokemon a year after they debut in Pokemon GO.
What Color is Shiny Bounsweet?
The shiny version of Bounsweet in Pokemon GO has purple leaves on its head, and the bottom of its body is light yellow.
This is pretty different from the green leaves and white bottom of its body of the standard version, even if most of its body remains the same color.
The shiny versions of Steenee and Tsareena share this color palette. All of the green and white parts swapped for purple and yellow.
Can You Get Shiny Steenee & Tsareena in Pokemon GO?
No, you cannot get the shiny version of either Steenee or Tsareena in Pokemon GO yet. This is because they don’t spawn in the wild, and there is not a shiny Bounsweet in Pokemon GO to evolve yet.
However, to prepare for when the shiny versions do come to the game, you’ll want to have 125 Bounsweet Candy. This is enough to evolve a shiny Bounsweet into a shiny Tsareena.
