A Pokemon Go update now hints at the coming of a Shiny Mewtwo to the hit mobile game. According to reports, Mewtwo may be the next Legendary Pokemon to become available soon enough. Interestingly, data mined from the game’s files suggest that the aforementioned Pokemon’s Shiny iteration may make an appearance soon.
Pokemon Go Update Teases Shiny Mewtwo’s Inclusion
Allegedly, a shiny sprite of Mewtwo was found in Pokemon Go’s files. The shiny version of Mewtwo seems to sport green accents in lieu of its original purple ones. With the emergence of the sprite, several fans now anticipate that a Shiny Mewtwo will soon make its debut in a near Pokemon Go update.
On top of the shiny sprite discovery, details regarding Mewtwo’s stat changes also suggest at a Shiny Mewtwo on its way. As reports reveal, several of Mewtwo’s stats saw some changes. These would include shifts in Mewtwo’s attack, defense, and stamina. Having these changes so close to the anticipated arrival of Mewtwo in Pokemon Go only further perpetuates the speculation of its potential inclusion.
As to when Mewtwo may arrive in Pokemon Go remains unknown. However, some fans theorize that the ongoing Pikachu Outbreak Festival in Japan would make for a fitting introduction to Mewtwo in the game. On the other hand, the upcoming Pokemon Go Stadium event would also make for a good opportunity to bring in Mewtwo to fans.
Shiny Pikachu and Shiny Raichu
In other news, the most recent Pokemon Go update now sees the inclusion of Shiny Pikachu in the game. Consequently, this means that a Shiny Raichu also makes itself available to fans as well. Reportedly, a Shiny Pikachu was spotted at the recent Pikachu Outbreak Festival. With regard to a Shiny Raichu, players will simply need to evolve their Shiny Pikachu to its next evolution.
Notably, it has not been confirmed if Shiny Pikachu — and, subsequently, Shiny Raichu — will become available worldwide. Seeing as Shiny Pikachu’s appearance manifested in Japan with the Pikachu Outbreak Festival, it remains unknown if it will show up in other parts of the world. Regardless, fans still hope that Shiny Pikachu and Shiny Raichu will become universally available later down the road.
Interestingly, there are also some rumors that claim a Shiny Pichu will make its appearance in Pokemon Go as well. Such allegations come from several fans who did some digging around in Pokemon Go’s game code. It’s worth noting, though, that this has yet to be officially confirmed.
