Also, they stated that ?there was a considerable amount of new codes that segregating Pokemons’ materials into ?default? and ?shiny? materials.? As stated, materials are conditions on how the surface area should look like. This includes the hue or shade and how the light reflects on its surface.

If you add all of these factors together, there is a possibility that there will be a future Pokemon GO update that would include the Shiny Pokemon to the game. If so, this is another milestone for the worldwide phenomenal app.
