Trainers will soon be able to obtain the shiny versions of the Galar forms of Articuno, Electhor and Moltres in Pokémon Sword and Shield, here is everything you need to know to unlock them.
When the latest Pokémon Sword and Shield DLC was released, players were able to find out the forms of Galar of the famous legendary birds of Kanto, a first in the history of the license.
