Yes you heard that right, the new pokemon go event secretly released shiny pokemon in the game!
just like in the video game, the shiny variants are more rare than the original counterparts, take our favourite flopping fish for example.
This is the original Magikarp
And this is the new shiny variation
as you can tell, the colour is significantly different from the original colour taking on a golden form, but wait.
Even Gyarados has a shiny and it still looks cool he a frickin shrimp!
As of now, only Magikarp and Gyarados will have shiny counterparts, but it will be a 1/4000 chance of finding and catching so with that said.
