Shiny Pokémon are all the craze in Pokémon GO. New shiny variants are added to the game frequently, though they can be very hard to come by. Minccino is one shiny form that players seek out when the Pokémon makes an appearance in the many events that are held throughout the year.

Can Minccino be shiny?

Minccino, and its evolution Cinccino, can be shiny in Pokémon GO. Their shiny forms were added quite a while ago though they have never been easy to come by. Minccino’s shiny form has a distinct color, which is extremely different from its normal hue. It goes from a light gray to a muted pink color, which means it’s easy to spot when it appears on the screen.

How to catch a shiny Minccino in Pokémon GO?

Shiny Minccino can be caught most reliably in the wild. The spawn rate of this shiny variant is extremely low, but with enough hunting, it is possible to find one. Minccino appears in events from time to time, which is when hunting will be most beneficial. The Pokémon doesn’t show up in Egg hatches or as a Raid boss so these aren’t important to watch if you’re looking for Minccino.
