To celebrate the Pokémon Go Safari Zone event in Singapore, a few rare Safari Pokémon will be available worldwide, including Shuckle and its shiny variant.

According to Newsweek:

Starting Saturday, April 20 at 6 a.m. local time to Sunday, April 21 at 10 p.m. local time, Pokémon Go trainers will notice an increase in Shuckle spawns in the overworld. This is where Shiny Shuckle will make its Pokémon Go debut.

Of course, to find Shiny Shuckle trainers will need to encounter (tap) on the Bug and Rock-type Pokémon in the wild. When the capture screen appears, you’ll know if the Shuckle is in its Shiny variant. If you’re not familiar with how Shiny Shuckle looks, it’s one of the more noticeable color changes. Its red shell turns blue.

Now the question becomes if the other Shiny Pokémon that made their debut during the Singapore Safari Zone will be available worldwide alongside Shuckle. Reports of Shiny Lapras appearing during the event poured-in this week, so the Water and Ice-type Pokémon could debut this weekend.

Niantic has yet to confirm, but if you see an increase in Lapras in the overworld this weekend there’s a good chance the Shiny variant is now available in Pokémon Go. We’ll update with confirmation when the event begins.

So good luck, and happy hunting.
