Not yet sighted outside of Japan just yet, mind. Here's hoping!

EDIT: Updated - different raid bosses have also been seen at the event. Sign of things to come?

New Shiny and I don't even have Shiny Magikarp yet :'( it's so cute! I want one really bad
I own all of those new Raid Bosses too, but I'm glad they're bringing in variety

Two mistakes: There is an image of a regular Pikachu while talking about the shiny, and Mr. Mime spawns in all of Europe and has nothing to do with the UK.

I disagree on both counts.
- I really think that's the shiny Pikachu model in GO. This image from the website with said info also shows the comparison between regular and shiny, and it seems to match to me. https://i1.wp.com/pbs.twimg.com/media/DGv_IB3UIAEfygM.jpg?w=728&ssl=1 It's a slight difference, but a darker yellow/orange for sure and matches when you compare with the image within the article.
- Mr Mime is spawning in Japan. Straight from the Niantic post about it which is linked in the article:
Trainers will also have a unique opportunity to encounter some Pok?mon rarely encountered in Japan, including Mr. Mime, at both Pok?mon GO Park events!
(Granted, by 'rarely' they mean 'not at all until this event started', but there you go.)
