Is Shiny Rockruff available in Pokemon Go?

Pokemon is one of the most popular franchises on the planet, and it has been transferred into the mobile world with Pokemon Go. One particular aspect of the game that intrigues players is catching shinies. These are Pokemon that have alternate colorations than their normal counterpart, which makes them highly sought after. These types of Pokemon are also particularly difficult to find, so knowing whether or not they exist in Pokemon Go is essential.

Shiny Rockruff

Shiny Rockruff can be obtained in Pokemon Go as of March 1st, 2022. Unfortunately, you can only get one via a Raid and from 10km Eggs for the time being. This will make the already rare chance of getting a shiny version of this Pokemon a bit more difficult.

While Rockruff is a cute Pokemon and a good looking shiny, one of the main attractions will be Lycanroc, which is the evolution of Rockruff. Lycanroc has three forms it can evolve into based on the time when it is evolved. These are Midday, Midnight, and Dusk Form. Midday is what you will get during the day, Midnight at night, and Dusk form is typically only obtained if your Rockruff has the Own Tempo move and is evolved between a specific hour of time.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that the Dusk form is currently available in Pokemon Go. This might change, but for now you will only be able to get Midday or Midnight Forms of Lycanroc.

When you reach level 25 on your Rockruff, it will then evolve into one of the Lycanroc forms based on the time it starts its evolution. Each form has its own moveset and base stats, but they are all Rock-type Pokemon.

Here is the midday form in normal and shiny variants:
