Pokémon GO – Shiny Corsola set to make debut appearance

Shiny Corsola will be available for the first time in Pokémon GO

Niantic are continuing to offer new Shiny variants to trainers as Corsola is set to be given a glittering form in Pokemon GO.

The augmented reality (AR) franchise has become one of the most successful grossing mobile games in recent years, with a vast number of events run throughout the course of each calendar year to ensure that players are always being rewarded with new and fresh content.

The Season of Legends event has been running for some time and is now beginning to wind down ahead of the infamous GO Fest 2021. It will run over the course of two days and the focus will be on capturing rare Pokémon, as well as competing in raids.

With the release of Pokémon Air Adventures, a travel program in Japan that features Pokémon-inspired planes and will be encouraging travel plans during the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of that, Corsola, the Coral Pokemon discovered in the Johto region, will be featured as part of the upcoming promotion. However, at this stage, the Ghost-type has not been available as a Shiny. But that is about to change.
