They can be obtained by either catching them with a Poké Ball, by hatching an Egg, through Evolution or Raid Battles.

Shiny Pokémon

See also: Shiny Pokémon.

Shiny Pokémon are extremely rare variants of Pokémon that differ in coloration from their normal appearance. These color variations may range from minor color adjustments to completely altered palettes. From the map, Shiny Pokémon will appear with their normal coloring until tapping on the Pokémon, meaning players will only discover if a Pokémon is shiny or not from the encounter screen.
