A wild Lechonk has appeared! Get exploring with our know-how on How To Get Shiny Lechonk In Pokémon Go! Pokémon Go has kicked off its Paldean update in style with the introduction of Lechonk and its shiny variant, which is a very flashy pink versus the original grey of this piggy Pokémon. If you’re like me, you know the thrill of getting a shiny in any of the brilliant games by Pokémon.
Pokémon Go is the brilliant work of Niantic. Bringing the beloved franchise to mobile and inspiring players to explore their scenery, Pokémon Go is excellent for gamers who enjoy interactive real-world exploring and commutes in day-to-day life. Walk to real-world points of interest to find and catch regional Pokémon, explore Pokéstops, join other real players and team up to rule or conquer gyms, battle in raids, and of course, indulge in the generous rewards from the game events and community days.
Want to know more? Take this Pokéball (which was conveniently in the trash!) and head to the Official Website to see what you catch there! We also covered Pokémon Go Paldea, as well as Pokemon Violet/Scarlet Codes, and if you’re into the unique creatures type of games why not check out our post on the upcoming Osatopia 2 tier list, or Dungeon Boss: Respawned Tier List.
