Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale event is available to all Trainers globally as they explore the various in-game experiences for free or as a ticket holder. This limited-time event marks the debut of the Shiny Munna in-game despite its previous appearances not having its Shiny form available.

Should Trainers be lucky, there are ways to catch the Psychic-type Pokémon during the event, providing ample chances to encounter it. This guide details if Shiny Munna is available in Pokémon GO and how to catch it.

Is There A Shiny Munna In Pokémon GO?

Yes, there is -- but only for a limited period. Accordingly, Trainers have a chance to catch a Shiny Munna during the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale event. Munna and its Shiny form appear in-game for the first time in the wild and in various exclusive activities.

There are also opportunities to receive a Shiny Munna as a reward when completing these activities, like in the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale Special Research. Previously unavailable in its Shiny form, this should be a huge treat for those looking to add a Shiny Munna to their PokéDex.
