The first shiny Pokémon have made an appearance in Pokémon Go, according to player reports.
Developer Niantic didn’t mention anything in its recent update notes, but players over on Reddit have been reporting catching shiny versions of Magikarp and its evolution, Gyarados.
Shiny Pokemon first made an appearance in Pokémon Gold and Silver, and have a different color to their non-shiny counterparts.
Yesterday, Niantic kicked off the Water Festival in Pokemon Go. The event will run until March 29th and ups the encounter rate of Magikarp, Squirtle, Totodile, and their Evolutions. Players also have a greater chance to encounter several of the Water-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region.
Pokémon Go is available now as a free download on iOS and Android.
