Is Shiny Bergmite in Pokémon GO?

Okay, I’m only going to go over this one more time, because people have trouble remembering it. Stalagmites are the big rocky or icy spikes that point up out of the ground, and stalactites are the big rocky or icy spikes that hang down from cave ceilings. It might help you remember the difference if you think of Bergmite; its spike faces up, and its name has “mite” in it. Stalagmite. Get it? Good. Now that the grammar lesson is out of the way, let’s focus on Bergmite. Specifically, is shiny Bergmite in Pokémon GO?

Bergmite, along with its evolved form Avalugg, were both added to the Pokémon GO PokéDex at the beginning of the Winter Holiday 2021 event that began earlier this month. Until the event ends at the end of the month, their spawn rate, along with the spawn rate of other Ice type Pokémon, is temporarily boosted, so it’s a good time to go looking for them. But of course, for some folks, hunting down new Pokémon isn’t worth it unless there’s a chance they can be shiny. So, does Bergmite have that shine going for it?

Is Shiny Bergmite in Pokémon GO?

Unfortunately, Shiny Bergmite is not in Pokémon GO. As is often the case, when new Pokémon are added to Pokémon GO’s PokéDex, they only receive their vanilla variations to start, with shiny variants to come at an undetermined later point. Bergmite, and by extension Avalugg, are no exception to this. You can catch all the Bergmites you want, but none of them will be shiny. 

As for when Bergmite’s shiny variant will be added, it’s anyone’s guess, but at the absolute bare minimum, it’ll probably be at least another year. Hey, it’s something to look forward to for next year’s Winter Holiday event, right?
