In Pokemon GO, trading is one the most fundamental parts of the game apart from completing the game itself of course. In order to catch all of the Pokemons, trading is bound to happen. However, there are a few unique factors that can help you to trade for your desired Pokemon. In this guide we’ll show you the amount of Stardust required to trade Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO.
Stardust Requirements for Trading Shiny Pokemon.
Now in Pokemon GO, trading Pokemon requires Stardust, which is pretty easy to obtain. However, if you want to trade a Shiny Pokemon it can get really expensive. Not all Pokemon are eligible for trading. For instance, Mew cannot be traded.
Shiny Pokemon are very expensive and can cost up to 1,000,000 Stardust to trade. It primarily depends on the friendship level and whether you’ve already caught the Pokemon by yourself.
There are a total of four Friendship levels as given below:
- Good Friend (Can be reached after 1 day of Friendship)
- Great Friend (Can be reached after 7 days of Friendship)
- Ultra Friend (Can be reached after 30 days of Friendship)
