The way to get Shiny Natu in Pokemon GO is by simply encountering as many as you can throughout the game.

Whilst the games' standard odds of 1 in 500 of encountering a Shiny make the chances quite slim and daunting, it's currently easier to get a Shiny Natu in Pokemon GO thanks to the currently ongoing Pokemon GO Festival of Colors event.

Running until Tuesday, 14 March 2023 at 8PM local time, Festival of Colors increases the odds of encountering certain Pokemon - Natu included.

Whilst this doesn't specifically increase the odds of encountering a Shiny version, you'll still have a better likelihood of finding a Pokemon GO Shiny Natu through increased trial and error. 

What's more, one of the Festival of Colors bonuses is that Lure Modules will now last for 3 hours when activated instead of the standard 30 minutes.

So, by increasing your rate of encounters for an even longer period of time, you should be able to find even more Natu and hopefully thus a Shiny Natu in Pokemon GO

That's all you need to know on how to get Shiny Natu in Pokemon GO. For more of what's new in the game, check out how to catch Ditto in Pokemon GO since the March 2023 update. What's more, have a look at our guide answering "is Regidrago Shiny in Pokemon GO?".
