PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm talking about Community days, Outbreaks, Festivals, Adventure Week, etc. I have only found shinies through events. (Most recent shiny Plusle). However there was that time I caught shiny Charmander 3 hours after the upped spawn rate.

You can find shinies outside of events. The chance of finding them is just lower since the spawn rate of Pokemon that are shiny are lower.

  • During community day, shiny rate is increased, and spawn rates are increased.
  • During events such as Adventure Week, the spawn rates are increased, meaning you'll have a higher probability of finding them.

I've gotten a shiny Bulbasaur outside of community day, and have gotten Swablu - which was never part of an event.
