A new Shiny Pokemon Go update has been deployed
UPDATE ONE: Two new Shiny Pokemon have been confirmed catchable this week.
Both Shuppet and Banette are now available in the wild, sporting new colour schemes.
It should be noted that a normal Shuppet is covered by a gray cloth, while the shiny sports a light grey colored one.
A normal Banette is dark gray, meanwhile, while the shiny version is more teal.
And for those who are interested in catching both, now is the best time to do it.
Both are available at a higher spawn rate during the Pokemon Go Halloween event, which is nearing its end.
The Halloween celebration started on October 20 and is scheduled to finish on November 2.
This means that Trainers in the UK have until Thursday, at around 9pm, GMT, to grab as many Shiny catch-chances as possible.

But it will soon be much harder to catch them, with the end of the Halloween event also reducing the overall spawn rate for dark and Ghost-types.
Until it does finish, you’ll earn extra Candy while you’re out trick-or-treating with your Buddy Pokémon.
There are better Candy rewards through catching, hatching, and transferring Pokemon, while your buddy will find Candy twice as fast.
Special boxes are also from the in-game shop, featuring items such as Raid Passes and Super Incubators.
Fans can also collect a free Mimikyu Disguise Hat and catch a special Pikachu, complete with Witch's hat.
