Shiny Kangaskhan is already available in Pokemon Go but it will be a lot easier to encounter. This guide will show players how they can find and capture this Pokemon. Earlier this year, players were able to participate in the Kanto Tour event. A big part of the identity of this event was that all 151 of the original Pokemon had their Shiny forms added into the game. A few of them were previously available but this event added all the rest. Players were even given an exclusive Special Research that rewarded players with a Shiny Mew. As part of the most recent Go Fest, players were tasked with completing Global Challenges. These tasks can only be completed by the massive community coming together and as a reward, Niantic is providing players with a new event known as Ultra Unlock. This is how players will be able to get their hands on a Shiny Kangaskhan.
The Ultra Unlock event will be broken into 3 different parts, Time, Space, and an unknown event happening last. During the Ultra Unlock Part 2: Space event, players will be able to encounter both Heracross and Kangaskhan in 3-star raid battles. There is only a chance for players to encounter them during this period but this guide will show players how they can find its Shiny form.
How To Find (& Catch) Shiny Kangaskhan In Pokemon Go
The Ultra Unlock Part 2: Space event will take place from August 6th to August 20th. During this time period, Kangaskhan will begin to appear in 3-star raid battles. It’s important to try and complete this hunt now since it is unknown when it will return back to raid battles. Since this is a 3-star raid battle, players can team up with 2-3 other players to take it down. Its Shiny form will make an appearance during the capturing phase. Fortunately, the Pokemon cannot run if it is confirmed to be Shiny.
From experience, the best thing to do would be to pack up as many Premium or Remote Raid Passes as possible. Since this event will only last about 2 weeks, the window of opportunity is pretty small. There are dedicated Facebook groups that work together to hunt for as many Shiny Pokemon as possible. Also, Kangaskhan is a regional-exclusive Pokemon, naturally only appearing in Australia. This might be the only time for players to find this Pokemon so they won’t want to miss out on this chance. Good luck to those Shiny hunters out there.
Pokemon Go is available now on iOS and Android.
