If you are joining in on the fun of GO Fest in Pokemon GO, you may find yourself running into an enhanced shiny chance. For those that are unfamiliar, you’ll be able to come across different types of Pokemon called Shiny Pokemon, which offer no stat boosts or anything of the sort, but a different color pallet, which let you show off that you have something that many other players may not have.
Shiny hunting has been a core staple of Pokemon since the second generation of games, where many players had their first run-in with a shiny Pokemon with Gyrados in the Lake of Rage, where there was a guaranteed red Gyarados. This ignited a flame in the hearts of many fans, and you’ll be able to find a handful of characters that share this unique style within the world of Pokemon GO. If you’re looking to find some in the Rainforest areas during GO Fest, you’ll be able to find them, alongside many others. Let’s take a look at who you’ll come across, and who has a chance to be shiny!
Shiny Pokemon During GO Fest – Rainforest Habitat
If you’re looking to add some new shiny Pokemon to your Pokedex, you’re in luck. There’s a fairly large list of different Pokemon that you’ll be able to find in the wild that offers Shiny variants, and while not every Pokemon in the game happens to have one of these just yet, be sure you’re on the lookout for these Pokemon during Pokemon GO Fest:
- Costumed Pikachu (Gracidea Costume)
Normally, you’ll only have a 1 in 500 chance to come across a wild, Shiny Pokemon, but these odds are usually increased during events, and GO Fest helps put the odds in your favor by lowering these odds to an average of around 1 in 96. You won’t need to search as hard or as far to get your hands on one of these Pokemon, allowing you the chance to start adding some shiny Pokemon to your collection.
