Players will find that the Shiny version of Glameow will have its color scheme changed to bright pink from its usual bluish-gray color scheme. Trainers will see that this particular character will appear more frequently during the duration of the Sinnoh Throwback Challenge event. However, the new character will remain in the game following the conclusion of the event, albeit with a lower chance of encountering than during the event.

Individuals interested in encountering and catching Shiny Glameow in Pokemon GO will be able to find this rare character in the wild. It will also hatch from 7km eggs, so players will want to make sure they are hatching as many 7km eggs as they can during the Sinnoh Throwback Challenge event to have the best possible chance of catching a Shiny Glameow. Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed way of encountering this character, which means players will have to play a good amount during the Sinnoh Throwback Challenge, where the spawn rate for Shiny Glameow will be at its highest. 

There is no doubt that plenty of players will be trying their best to add this new character to their team during one of the biggest events of the year for the popular title.
