Shiny Lapras spotted by Shuckle released

Trainers, in a surprising turn of events, shiny Lapras has been spotted in the wild! Although there is no official confirmation in the following locations:

  • Ontario, Canada
  • Hong Kong

Lapras is available as a reward from the Win 5 Gym Battles research task, which is Lapras for a reward. Not to be confused with Battle in a gym 5 times which gives Monkey / Machop. See our Field Research List and Rewards: April 2019 for a full list of current research tasks.

Lapras is not really a useful Pokémon in terms of raids and PvP, but it is widely beloved and we are sure there will be a ton of players shiny hunting it. No word yet, but still, good luck!

Shiny Shuckle

But Lapras is not the new shiny one you can start hunting today! Shiny Shuckle has been released as part of the Safari Zone: Sentosa celebration mini-event. Although shiny Shuckle wants to stay around, Shuckle Spawns wants to be boosted only throughout this weekend:

Another part of the celebration is Shuckle's return as a Raid Boss! Yes, you read it right, Shuckle is back as an animal 3 raid boss with only 3892 CP and with the same mind boggling difficulty. Shuckle – you want to be out of time to be able to knock out Shuckle. A quick look at TTW metric from our simulator reveals that a duo is your only option:
