You can discover how many Shinies you caught in 2021 by searching:

You can modify that to any year as well as other searchable terms. You can search:

…to search for all the hundos that you caught in the year.

Other popular terms to search in Pokémon GO include:

  • Search a Pokémon caught within a 1000 KM radius: distance1000
  • Search a Pokémon caught outside of a 1000 KM radius: distance1000-
  • Who can be Mega Evolved?: megaevolve
  • Who has a certain attack?: @attackname (For example, “@meteor mash”)
  • See the all evolutionary stages of a species that you have: add a + before the Pokémon’s name, but this has been simplified by the newly clickable “Show Evolutionary Line” under the search bar
  • Region: Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, Alola, and Galar are all searchable. I wonder when Hisui will be added!
  • Age: age0 shows Pokémon caught that day, age1 the previous day, and so on

  • Special types: mythical, legendary, costume, lucky, hatched, shadow, purified, traded
  • Exclude Pokémon from searches: Put ! before the species name. (For example, !Pikachu will show all species but Pikachu. I often will do this when transferring if I want to avoid transferring a certain species.)

Hopefully, this has been helpful for Pokémon GO players. Searching my activity within a year’s time has allowed me to track how much time I spend playing the game and how engaged I’ve been over a long period.
