Trivia

  • The official blog made an announcement of shiny Cubone, which is done for new-released Shiny Pokémon. However, shiny Cubone had already been released in Ingress Prime Celebration, an event in November 2018.
  • During the first few hours of the event in Australia and New Zealand regions, the Psyduck given from the Timed Research was a guaranteed shiny.
