The current Pokémon GO Raid bosses are as detailed in the table above. Any Pokémon with an asterisk (*) by the name can be shiny, but the odds of this will differ depending on the raid tier. Simply put, the higher the tier, the more likely it is that the resulting Pokémon will be a shiny, with legendary Pokémon roughly having a 1/20 chance.
