Following Pokemon GO's Season of Mischief event, a trio of Psychic-type Pokemon from the Sinnoh region will be made available to catch once more.
Starting September 14, 2021, Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie will be available in their respective regions. Azelf can be found in 5-Star raids in the Americas and Greenland. Mesprit can be found in 5-Star raids in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India. Uxie can be found in 5-Star raids in the Asia-Pacific region.
Some players who want to collect these legendaries may want to know if they can appear in raids in their Shiny variant in Pokemon GO.
Can Sinnoh's Lake Trio be Shiny in Pokemon GO?
Many players are unaware of whether or not the Psychic-type Trio can be Shiny in Pokemon GO, as Pokemon released through 5-Star raids for events are usually Shiny. Fortunately, these Pokemon can be found in their Shiny variants with enough time and raids.
The best time to look for your region's respective lake trio member in Pokemon GO is on Wednesdays.
Wednesdays have raid hour events starting at 6:00 PM. It also helps to have a group of friends to take on these raids with as 5-Star raids are mostly impossible to do with one player.
