Catching a Shiny Pokemon can be difficult for Pokemon Go players, especially on account of their rarity. If you want to know how to finally catch one, you’ve come to the right place. 

Finding shiny versions of species in Pokemon Go can be a tough task. It’s been reported that the odds of finding a shiny Pokemon in the wild are roughly 1 in 450. So, it’s safe to say that catching a shiny version is heavily influenced by your luck.

A lot of Pokemon Go players have been asking if it’s possible to catch a Shiny Fletchling. Well, unfortunately, we may have to wait a while before that is possible.

Pokemon Go’s Kalos event is active until December 8.

Where can I find a Shiny Fletchling?

Unfortunately, the Shiny Fletchling has not been released into Pokemon Go yet. This is is because it is a member of the 6th generation of Pokemon.

Niantic has not confirmed when the 6th generation Pokemon’s shiny versions will be added. However, we still have some tips and tricks to help you catch more Shiny Pokemon.

Tips and tricks for catching a Shiny Pokemon

The best day to go hunting for a Shiny is on the Community Day that occurs once a month. This event boosts the odds of a certain Pokemon spawning in your area. This means your more likely to find a Shiny on those days as more of the same Pokemon species are available to find.

Finally, in the wild, it’s best to avoid catching Pokemon that you don’t need. Focus purely on looking for Shiny’s as the more Pokemon you encounter, the better odds you have in finding a Shiny.

Finding Shiny versions is just a case of persistence and consistent playtime.

Of course, following these tips will not guarantee you find a Shiny Pokemon.

However, it puts you on the right track and gives you a good idea of where to look.

Starting in October, the community nights offered up 30,000 points, which could be redeemed for prizes.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.


To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
