How to Catch Shiny Inkay in Pokemon GO

First off, let’s see when the Inkay Limited Research is going to take place. It is scheduled to start this Saturday, September 3rd, 2022, at 11 AM your Local Time and last until Saturday, September 3rd, 2022, at 2 PM your Local Time. During these several hours, you will receive 2× Candy for catching Pokemon, as well as an increased chance of encountering Inkay – including a Shiny Inkay! Of course, just like with every Shiny version of a Pokemon, the odds of getting it in a Shiny variant are low, so don’t forget to have an Incense Lure active in order to improve your chances of encountering a Shiny one. Apart from Inkay, other Pokemon are also going to see an increase in their spawn rates during this event. These are:

  • Alolan Rattata (can be Shiny).
  • Murkrow (can be Shiny).
  • Houndour (can be Shiny).
  • Poochyena (can be Shiny).
  • Nuzleaf.
  • Sableye (can be Shiny).
  • Purrloin.
  • Galarian Zigzagoon (can be Shiny).

As a Dark / Psychic dual-type, Inkay is resistant to Psychic moves. On the other hand, it is vulnerable to Fairy, and particularly to Bug moves. It has Peck (Normal) and Tackle (Flying) as its Quick Moves, and Psybeam (Psychic) and Night Slash (Dark) as its Main Moves.
