Can Drilbur be Shiny in Pokemon GO 2022: If you’re playing Pokemon GO in 2022 and want a shiny Drilbur, you might be in for a bit of a letdown.
I’ve been hoping to catch one because Excadrill is one of my favorite Pokemon and I’d love to evolve a shiny one. I’m sorry, but I think you and I are both out of luck. At least for right now.
Can Drilbur be Shiny in Pokemon GO
As far as we know, Drilbur can’t be shiny in Pokemon GO in 2022. Its evolved form, Excadrill, also doesn’t have a shiny version. If we are wrong, please tell us in the comments.
It’s possible that we just have terrible luck, but as far as we know, there is no shiny Drilbur in this game. If you look at the post about the Test Your Mettle event, you’ll see that Drilbur is one of the Pokemon whose “portrait” doesn’t have a star in the top right corner.
That pretty much seals the deal, since only Pokemon with those little stars can be shiny. So, forget it if you’re playing Test Your Mettle and looking for a special Drilbur.
So, we don’t know anything else about shiny Drilbur in Pokemon GO in 2022. Things could, of course, change at some point. Niantic might add the special version of the game at some point in the future.
There are shiny versions of Drilbur in other Pokemon games, so it’s probably not completely impossible.
That doesn’t mean you should just forget about Drilbur when you see it. On its own, the Pokemon is pretty good. Aside from that, Excadrill is really great.
