Can Solosis be Shiny in Pokemon GO – Answered

Can you get your alien baby in blue?

It’s a new week, and that means new raids will pop up across the world. Prime among these challenges are Mega Pidgeot and Regirock, but let’s not forget about our 1-Star options, like the Digimon-esque Solosis. And speaking of this strange, Psychic cell, can Solosis be shiny in Pokemon GO?

Solosis arrived in Pokemon GO all the way back in 2020 during the Psychic Spectacular event. Still, since then, this Psychic Pokemon has gotten very little love, and that’s likely because of its absolutely forgettable last-stage form, Reuniclus. There are dozens of other excellent options in the Psychic category, and Solosis and Reuniclus simply don’t have the charm of Ralts and Gardevoir.

And perhaps because of this, Nianatic has forgotten to release Solosis’s Shiny sprites. So, as of February 2023, Solosis can’t be found, Shiny. That means it’s likely not worth the effort to grind out as many Solosis as possible in the 1-Star raids spotting your city. And because Reuniclus isn’t really a Pokemon you’d want to bring home to Blanche or Candela, it’s not worth finding one with perfect IVs, either.

But I can’t say I’m not disappointed. Solosis and Reuniclus have such interesting designs. Like the cell literally turns into an alien baby suspended in highly toxic goo. Its shiny form manages to make the whole thing very Pinterest aesthetic with its pastel blues.

But if you’re determined to Shiny Hunt, Jigglypuff, Voltorb, and Foongus all have Shiny forms and are available in 1-Star Raids. And if you don’t mind fighting a Pokemon, that’s a little more challenging; you can also bring your team up against Galarian Stunfisk. There are plenty of other Pokemon in the sea.

Yeah, it’s slim picking out here. Better luck next week.
