Can Binacle be Shiny in Pokemon GO – Answered

For Sustainability Week, Pokemon GO has kick-started a series of events and quests. But those are all small potatoes compared to the debut of Binacle, the two-handed Pokemon. This Water- and Ground-Type Pokemon comes to us from Generation Six and it is only natural that it hits center stage when Niantic is focusing on the climate of our earth and ocean.

But can it be shiny? The answer is yes, Binacle can be shiny in Pokemon GO!

While Binacle is usually found in orange and brown, in its shiny form it takes on a green and pink hue, which it keeps when it evolves into Barbaracle at level 34.

If you are trying to shiny hunt Binacle, your best time to do so is between April 20 – April 26, 2023. That is because Binacle is both the fourth stage reward for the Sustainability Week Timed Research reward and a Pokemon that is benefiting from increased spawns. That gives you ample opportunity to find your special Binacle!
