This same weekend Pokémon GO received a minor update that fixed an issue with the Egg hatching animation sequence, which was sometimes briefly visible from the map view, in addition to minor text corrections.
However, as often happens on these occasions, this minor update could have paved the way for the arrival of the Pokémon Shiny to Pokémon GO. The folks at Silph Road have dug up the latest APK released in the new patch and for the first time have found different values for the “Default” and “Shiny” Pokémon.
This research also suggests the arrival of Ditto, one of the most desired creatures in the game and one of the missing species in the Niantic title, who will help us capture Pokémon like Meltan.
What is a Shiny Pokémon?
The Shiny Pokémon they are nothing more than an alternate version of another color of a normal creature that became famous with the arrival of the Pokémon TV series. These kinds of little monsters are very tough and as their name suggests, they shine. In Nintendo games, the chances of a Shiny Pokémon appearing are approximately 1 in 8192, but from the fourth generation of Pokémon they grew thanks to the use of “Pokeradar”.
It is unknown if these Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon GO They would arrive with the next update of the mobile game, but since we have to meet the 2nd generation creatures first, there may still be a long time for them to appear in the application.
Other new features of Pokémon GO
In addition to the 2nd generation Pokémon and the Pokemon Shiny in Pokemon GOIt is expected that with the new update of the game we can fight with friends and with users that we meet on the street, as has been demanded since the Nintendo title hit the market last summer. It is also rumored that, as with the titles of Nintendo’s portable consoles, with the future version of Pokémon GO the possibility of exchanging Pokémon with other users will be released.
