Also, if you happen to already have your hands on a Shiny Aggron, you’ll be able to Mega Evolve them, as well! If you’re new to the Raid scene, let’s see how you’ll know if you’ve found one.

During the initial fight, you’re always going to see the Standard version of a Pokemon, even if they do happen to have a Shiny variant. You’ll only ever know that they are shiny after you’ve defeated them when you bring up the encounter screen. With Aggron, you’ll see that their body is now a teal-blue color, and they have red eyes, rather than a gray body and blue eyes. You’ll also see a flash of stars at the beginning of the capture, as well as an icon next to their name to signal that they are Shiny.
