Yes, you can catch the shiny version of Shadow Articuno in Pokemon GO, following its addition to the game on June 10, 2023.

After defeating Shadow Articuno in a Shadow Raid, there is a 5%, or 1 in 20, chance that the Shadow Articuno you encounter will be shiny.

Currently, Tier 5 Shadow Raids are the only way to get Shadow Articuno and, therefore, the only way to get the shiny version of this Pokemon.

Find out how to win Shadow Articuno Raids in Pokemon GO so you can defeat this powerful boss easily. After all, you’ll probably have to beat it plenty of times before you can find the shiny version!

What Color is Shiny Shadow Articuno?

The shiny version of Shadow Articuno is a very light, icy blue color and has a white stomach. This icy color scheme really sets it apart from the standard blue version of this Legendary Bird.

The iconic shiny Articuno will be even more sought-after as a Shadow Pokemon. This is thanks to both thanks to the increased attack and damage output, as well as the extreme rarity!

Shadow Articuno is just the second Shadow Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO. This is following shiny Shadow Mewtwo’s Pokemon GO debut at the end of May 2023.

However, with Shadow Articuno being in Raids throughout June 2023, we expect to see the other two Shadow Legendary Birds get shinies in the coming months. Better be prepared for shiny Shadow Moltres and shiny Shadow Zapdos in July and August!
