Pokemon Go Shiny Drifloon

Shiny Pokemon appear around once every 450 encounters. That makes these variants extremely rare. However, with so many types of Pokemon around in spotlight hour, this makes it the best time to try and catch one.

Not every Pokemon has a shiny variant, but Drifloon does. Start by stocking up on pokeballs, lures and berries before you go hunting. When the spotlight hour starts, try to find a nest and face as many as you can.

Lay down lures to increase spawn rates. If the shiny Pokemon comes, use berries and your best pokeballs to catch it. Its evolution Drifblim can also be shiny, so if you catch one you can evolve it with candies.

This event is part of a Halloween spotlight focus. October sees a host of ghost Pokemon get a focus. Check back here for updates on the weekly spotlights and challenges.
