If you think about it the shinies they release are the same types as a research Pokemon for that month
Snubbull and Houndour don’t have the same types as Raikou, the field research reward for the month their shinies got available. That’s why I actually thought we were going to see shiny Electrike next month.
Shiny Electrike would look cool tho.
Happening Tuesday my time (GMT+10).
Looks like I will have a good use for these seeing as I can’t walk:
But why are they coming
Because of Suicune Field Research.
