Riolu Hatch Day Shiny Odds

The odds of hatching the shiny version of Riolu during the Riolu Hatch Day event will likely be 4%. This means that 1 out of every 25 Riolu you hatch should be shiny.

Niantic has not confirmed the shiny rate yet. However, this is the standard boosted shiny rate for Pokemon GO events.
