Shiny Alolan Exeggutor made its Pokemon GO debut during the Spring into Spring event in 2022. The probability of its Shiny spawn rate remains unchanged even though its original counterpart appears as a Raid boss.

Players are advised to participate in raids rigorously to boost their odds of encountering a Shiny Alolan Exeggutor. This is only possible if they accumulate enough Raid Passes. Stocking enough Raid Passes and repeatedly participating in raids is one of the popular strategies to catch a Raid boss’s Shiny variant. They can get Raid Passes from the Pokemon GO store or by visiting controlled Gyms, and spinning a photodisk. 

The Raid Boss will not be a Shiny Alolan Exeggutor. However, a monster will emerge once the boss is defeated, and there is a possibility of encountering a Shiny variant. Not everybody will encounter its Shiny variant, even if multiple players partake in the same raid. If the Raid Boss’s Shiny version is encountered, players can use the given counters to defeat it.
