Increased chances of encountering a Shiny Luvdisc

The most exciting feature of this event is boosted odds of encountering a Shiny Luvdisc, which has a striking gold color scheme. This makes the event a great time to expand your Shiny Pokedex.

Our best tip to help you find a Shiny Luvdisc is to go out exploring, spin as many PokeStops as you can, and keep on completing those Field Research tasks as they’ll lead to a guaranteed Luvdisc encounter.

Although Luvdisc isn’t listed as a potential wild encounter during the event, it’s probably worth using Incense while out exploring just in case you come across them.

Pokemon Go Luvdisc Limited Research Day wild encounters

The following Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild during the event:

  • Slowpoke
  • Lickitung
  • Miltank
  • Lileep
  • Feebas
  • Spritzee
  • Fomantis
  • Alomomola (rare)

All of these Pokemon can be Shiny (if you’re lucky!) except for Fomantis. As always, we’d recommend using Incense and Lure Modules if you want to get them.

On a final note: Alomomola is a top contender in the ongoing Love Cup, so if you’re a fan of PvP Battles, now is a great time to catch or evolve one.
