Can Trevenant be Shiny in Pokemon Go? – Answered


Pokémon GO was a smash hit when it first came out, breaking all sorts of concurrent player records for the Pokémon franchise all over the world!

As is with every Pokémon game, players are tasked with searching for Pokémon to capture and collect, using them to battle other Pokémon, be it against the AI or against other players. The difference with Pokémon GO is that it utilizes the player’s phone GPS to find and capture Pokémon!

The game has been expanding its roster since its humble release with the original 151 Pokémon all the way to modern times. Pokémon got so popular that the original roster kept expanding till we got to eight whole generations of Pokémon!

Today we will be talking about Trevenant and its Shiny Form in Pokémon GO.


Trevenant is a Grass/Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in the Gen-6 games of Pokémon X and Y. Trevenant and its pre-evolution, Phantump, are popular Pokémon from the Kalos region, especially because of their cool designs, typing and strength in battle.

In Pokémon GO, Trevenant is not too hard to acquire. Due to this, players have been wondering if the Shiny form of Trevenant is available as well?

Can Trevenant be Shiny?

Trevenant, being one of the Gen-6 Pokémon first encountered in the Kalos region, has been in Pokémon GO since the game’s Kalos update. Unfortunately, since the Kalos release was quite a recent one, Niantic has not released the Shiny version of Trevenant or Phantump as of yet.

In typical Niantic fashion, whenever they decide to release certain Pokémon, they seldom release its Shiny version, generally releasing in future events after the base Pokémon have been released. In this case, we will be on the lookout for Shiny Trevenant in the days to come.
