Pokemon Go Update Adds Rare Shiny Pikachu

Popular mobile AR game Pokemon Go has received an exciting new creature: shiny Pikachu is now in the wild! The only downside is that the rare Pokemon is only available in Japan right now, with no word as yet on a worldwide release.

As you can see, the shiny version of Pikachu is pretty similar to standard Pikachu. The creature is the third shiny creature available in Pokemon Go, after shiny Magikarp and shiny Gyarados.

Even though the shiny Pikachu is not currently available outside of Japan, developer Niantic recently began unlocking Pokemon Go’s region-specific creatures in Europe, though only for a limited time. Another Legendary Pokemon is available now, meanwhile, but you’ll have to be quick–Zapdos is only available in Raid Battles until August 14.
