Girafarig’s evolution, Farigiraf, which made its debut in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, will likely be coming to Pokémon Go soon now that Gen 9 Pokémon are in the game. Niantic ran three Spotlight Hours back-to-back-to-back featuring Pokémon that evolve into special forms in Paldea (or have regional variants, like Wooper), which is kind of suspicious.

What is the shiny rate for Girafarig in Pokémon Go?

As per old research by the now-defunct website The Silph Road (via Wayback Machine), the shiny rate for Pokémon on a regular day is approximately one in 500. Girafarig is not a confirmed Pokémon that gets a “permaboost” (meaning that it’s a rare spawn and thus gets a boosted shiny rate).

What can I do to attract more shiny Pokémon?

Not much, unfortunately. It appears to be random chance. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are set by developer Niantic, and they are typically only boosted during special events like Community Days or Safari Zones, or in Legendary Raids. There are no consumable items that boost shiny Pokémon rates.

Where can I find a list of available shiny Pokémon?

LeekDuck keeps a list of currently available shiny Pokémon. It’s a helpful visual guide that illustrates what all of the existing shiny Pokémon look like.
