If you’re looking to add a few more Shiny Pokemon to your collection, you’ll want to add these two to your list. You’ll be able to get your hands on a shiny variant of them quite easily, thanks to their enhanced spawn rate, and increased shiny odds due to the TCG event that is currently going on.

You’ll also be able to get your hands on a few other shiny Pokemon during this event, such as TCG Hat Pikachu, as well as some great powerhouse Pokemon like Slaking. Make sure that you’re tuning in for all of the newest news on events, such as the upcoming Mantine Spotlight Hour, as well! If you’re looking for an easy way to start earning more candies with your Pokemon, you’ll want to start working your way towards becoming best buddies with them, so if you are able to get your hands on a shiny Lunatone or Solrock, you can make this happen easily!
