Yes, if you are lucky, you can catch the shiny version of Darkrai in Pokemon GO.

After winning a 5-Star Darkrai Raid, there is a low chance that the Darkrai you encounter will be the shiny version. Only 5% of Darkrai in Pokemon GO are shiny.

If you want to catch the shiny version of Darkrai, the best time to do it is during the Darkrai Raid Hour on October 25, 2023. This is because Darkrai Raids will be taking place much more frequently during this event.

Darkrai Shiny Odds in Pokemon GO

The odds of any Darkrai you encounter in Pokemon GO being shiny is 1 in 20, or 5%.

This is the standard shiny rate for Tier 5 Raid bosses that have shiny variants in the game.

Unfortunately, you cannot boost the odds of you encountering shiny Darkrai. Therefore, you’ll have to repeatedly defeat it in Raids until you find the shiny version.

What Color is Shiny Darkrai?

The shiny version of Darkrai has a dark purple body, a pink ring around its neck and green eyes.

This makes it appear very different to the standard version of this Mythical Pokemon, even if both have white fog coming from their heads.
