SINNOH IN 5KM EGGS
Shiny chances are abundant in the Sinnoh 5KM Egg Pool. Kricketot, Budew, Bronzor, Bonsly, Hippopotas, and Croagunk can all be shiny.

SINNOH IN RAIDS
Heatran makes its return to Pokémon GO! So, if you didn’t get its shiny variant last time it was here, now is another opportunity!
This celebration event definitely delivers the Sinnoh goods! Tons of wild spawns, a decent Egg Pool, and some new Raid Boss challenges await us! Not to mention the release of shiny Buizel into the Pokémon GO world!
