There’s always a small chance the next Pokémon you encounter in Pokémon Go could turn out to be a shiny version. A shiny Pokémon will have a slightly different appearance than its traditional look, and it comes with a distinct shine whenever you throw it out.
For players who consider themselves collectors, you can also capture legendary Pokémon and their shiny forms. But they’re not always immediately available. When Incarnate Forme Landorus first appeared in early 2020, it did not have a shiny form for players to catch.
That will be changing as it appears in five-star raids starting on March 1, 2021. Whenever players battle and attempt to capture the Incarnate Forme Landorus Pokémon, there’s a small chance you see a shiny version of this Pokémon appear. You and your friends will want to work together to defeat it in battle to ensure you can capture it at the end. If you fail the raid, you will not be able to capture this Pokémon, and you’ll lose the chance to see if it’s shiny or not.
Like all Pokémon available in raids, you won’t know that the Incarnate Forme Landorus that you’re battling will be shiny until you beat it and attempt to capture it. You’ll only have a few chances to do it, though. You don’t have access to any of your regular PokéBalls, and instead you need to use Premier Balls. However, you can use any berries you have on your to increase your chances. We recommend using the Golden Razz berries to make it easier to catch.
March 1, 2021, is the debut for Incarnate Forme Landorus’ shiny form. Moving forward, whenever players have a chance to catch this Pokémon, there is a chance it will be shiny.
