Can Deino be shiny in Pokémon GO - June Community Day

As the June Community Day creeps nearer, Trainers wonder if Deino and its evolutions can be shiny in Pokémon GO.
Can Deino be shiny in Pokémon GO - June Community Day

The June Community Day in Pokémon GO has nearly arrived, and many Trainers are hoping to snag their very own shiny Deino. But it's important to know if shiny versions of Pokémon exist in the game because many alternate color schemes are still missing.

One example is the weekly Spotlight Hour, which features a ton of spawns for the same Pokémon. While it's an excellent opportunity to catch a ton of Pokémon, it doesn't guarantee a shiny form within the game. New events can always change that, and Deino could be a great place to start. So, could we see a shiny Deino in the Pokémon GO June Community Day?

In short, there is a shiny Deino form in Pokémon GO that any Trainer can attempt to get (with enough luck, that is). The shiny form of Deino maintains the black colors from the base version, but instead of having blue skin color, the Dragon-type is a deep green. Hydreigon maintains this color scheme as well.

One of the rules of thumb for shinies in Pokémon GO is that any Pokémon featured in a Community Day will have a shiny form available. Therefore, if the shiny form doesn't debut during the Community Day, it means Niantic already implemented the shiny form in the past. Notably, Deino has already had the green color scheme available for some time.

Although we know that shiny Deino is possible to catch, that doesn't automatically mean you will find one. Finding shiny Pokémon is all about luck, and there's a reason they are so sought after within the game franchise. Additionally, they have become even more challenging to get with the hours of the Community Days being cut in half.

While plenty of luck is involved, you still have a few opportunities to increase your odds of a rare catch. The first step is to utilize Incense Lures or Lure Modules to ensure that Deino is constantly spawning during the Community Day. Then you'll want to stay in populated areas with plenty of Gyms and Poké Stops to ensure plenty of spawns.

With the June Community Day only lasting three hours, you'll also want to save as much time as possible. Remember that you don't need to catch a Deino to see if it's shiny. Simply starting an encounter by tapping on them will tell you right away. If you don't find one, back out and look for another.

Shinies, in general, seem to be far easier to get during Community Day events, so your odds are much higher than a usual Spotlight Hour. But being prepared can still save you plenty of grief in Pokémon GO.
