Is Shiny Mega Scizor available + How to get one

Pokemon GO’s spooky annual event, Bug Out, has just arrived in the game, and players now have plenty to take care of.

There are plenty of new Field Research Tasks, Pokemon Debuts, Shiny Debuts, Wild Encounters, and new Raid Bosses, including a first Mega Pokemon, Mega Scizor.

The event is set to run for just under a week, from Wednesday August 10 through Tuesday August 16, giving players ample opportunity to get what they want out of the event.

We turn our attention to the first Mega Pokemon, however. Here’s if Shiny Mega Scizor is in Pokemon GO and if so, how you can give yourself the best chance of grabbing one.

Is Shiny Mega Scizor available in Pokemon GO?

The good news for shiny collectors is that shiny Mega Scizor is actually available in-game from the start.

As Scyther and Scizor have had their shiny forms in-game since 2019’s Bug Out event, Mega Scizor also has their default shiny form.

What does it look like?

Shiny Mega Scizor retains Scizor’s bright quirky color scheme.

The Pokémon changes from its bright red color to a bright green, as seen in the tweet embedded below:

It’s definitely one of the most polarizing Shiny Pokémon.

How to Get Shiny Mega Scizor in Pokemon GO

There are several ways for players to get a Shiny Mega Scizor in Pokemon GO.

First off, if you already have a shiny Scizor, all you’ll have to do is earn enough Mega Scizor Energy from Pokemon GO Raids to be able to Mega Evolve the Pokemon.

Once you’ve done that, Mega Evolve your already shiny Scizor and you’ll have Shiny Mega Scizor.

The second option is by no means guaranteed, but will give you a chance to get the shiny Pokemon.

You’ll need to keep hitting as many Mega Scizor Raids as possible and hope you come across a Shiny Scizor after the battle, which can then be Mega Evolved.
