Palkia is one of the many legendary Pokémon you can find in Pokémon Go. These rare Pokémon only appear for a short time, giving you the chance to catch them in five-star raids. You will need to act quickly to catch them, and you will want to make sure you bring a friend with you to help defeat them. With Palkia appearing in raids for a short time, how good are your chances of catching a shiny version of Palkia in Pokémon Go?

Does Palkia have a shiny version in Pokémon Go?

We can confirm that during the raids at the late end of the Hisuian Discoveries event, Palkia does have a chance to be a shiny version. This is the second time Palkia has appeared in widespread raids that give players the chance to encounter the shiny version of this legendary Pokémon. We recommend bringing as many other friends as you can to these raids, increasing your chances of defeating this powerful Pokémon and adding it to your collection.

Palkia is one of the stronger legendary Pokémon you can catch in Pokémon Go. With a chance to catch its shiny version, we also recommend you work towards teaching it the best moveset, giving you more reason to use it against other players, or bring it to future five-star raids featuring powerful Pokémon.

You can catch Palkia for only a brief time. It will begin appearing on July 31 in your local area and disappear on August 10. This is well over a week’s duration, giving you plenty of time to add it to your collection. Regardless, we recommend working with other players to have the best chances of defeating Palkia.
