New Galarian Shinies arrive today in Pokémon GO. Along with the arrival of entirely new species like Wooloo (pictured below), Skwovet, Falinks, and Zacian, a few of the Galarian regional variants we've already had for some time will be able to be encountered in their Shiny forms. These new Shinies include Galarian Meowth, Galarian Farfetch'd, Galarian Stunfisk, and Galarian Weezing. Some of these Pokémon have multiple different ways in which they can be found in Pokémon GO, so keep reading to see how you can Shiny hunt these new releases.
