Niantic confirms Shiny Cubone and Shiny Ponyta can now be found in Pokémon GO to celebrate Ingress Prime

Niantic has announced that Shiny Cubone and Shiny Ponyta have made their Pokémon GO debuts to celebrate Ingress Prime. This means that Shiny Marowak and Shiny Rapidash have also been added to the immensely-popular mobile game as well. New Ingress-themed apparel has also been made available for your avatars to wear in Pokémon GO. The Ingress Prime White, Ingress Prime Green and Ingress Prime Blue shirts are now available for free to all Pokémon GO players. For a limited time, increased spawns of Cubone and Ponyta are now available in the wild in Pokémon GO. The official announcement from the development team is as follows:

Celebrate Ingress Prime’s launch with T-shirt avatar items at no cost!

Trainers,

The world of Ingress, the Niantic game which influenced the experience that Trainers enjoy in Pokémon GO, is changing right before our eyes! In celebration of Ingress Prime, a new mobile game out now, Trainers can sport special T-shirt avatar items, available at no cost in the Style Shop.

The three T-shirts have a futuristic style, and each has its own unique design—one includes the Ingress Prime logo, while the other two have the colors and designs representing the game’s two factions.

Plus, as part of the celebration, Trainers will have an opportunity to encounter two Shiny Pokémon that have colors matching Ingress Prime’s factions—Shiny Ponyta, which has bright blue flames, and Shiny Cubone, which has a green body!

So celebrate this special milestone with us and try on a new look! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
