How to get Shiny Darkrai and their prices in Pokémon Go

Shiny Pokémon are rare versions of Pokémon in Pokémon go that have a modified appearance. They are called shiny because usually they have a slight sheen that makes them stand out more than the normal versions. This guide explains how to get Shiny Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokémon.

Brilliant rates

Aside from Pokémon that don’t have shiny versions in the game, each Pokémon has a base shine rating assigned to it that tells you how often you’ll see a shiny version of it under normal circumstances. Darkrai is a Mythical Pokémon, so its shine rating is around 1 in 20; so, for every 20 Darkrai raids you do, you’ll likely only see one shiny version.

How to get Darkrai

There is no way to force a Shiny Darkrai to appear. Unfortunately, the best way to get a Shiny Darkrai is to increase the number of times you encounter it. Since Darkrai is a Mythical Pokémon that’s rarely seen in the game, it can be incredibly difficult. However, we have a few tips. Plan many raids. Twenty or more is ideal. It’s a good idea to be in an area with a lot of gyms on a day when you know Darkrai will be featured in raids. The more gyms you have in your neighborhood, the more likely it is that one of them is hosting a Darkrai. With Darkrai’s shiny rate at 5%, you’ll have a good chance of catching one if you do more raids. Beware of raid hours and other special events. Currently, there are no raid times scheduled for Darkrai. However, Niantic usually gives players enough notice before hosting one. Raid Hours are times when the number of 5-level raids increases, which further increases the possibility of seeing a Shiny Darkrai.
