The stars have aligned for us! In Pokémon Go, the Halloween 2023 event will make it possible for Phantump to have a shiny version. This cute Pokemon has a look that is haunting, with shades of red and gray, which is perfect for this Pokemon because it is possessed by spirits. Shiny Phantump is widely considered to be one of the best shiny Pokemon. But do you know why? Since Phantump is not a Pokémon that is known to acquire a “permaboost” (which means that it is a rare spawn and consequently gets an increased shiny rate), the fact that we have a chance to catch one is incredible.
Below, you can find extra details on the shiny Phantump that can be found in Pokemon GO.
What are the chances of getting a Shiny Phantump in Pokémon Go?
Phantump is a Pokémon that has the form of a ghost and has a tree stump. It has nubby limbs and a wispy body. Both of its crimson eyes can be seen through two holes in the stump, while the mouth can be seen on the stump itself. According to previous information published on the website The Silph Road (via Wayback Machine), the chance of seeing a shiny Pokémon on a typical day is around one in five hundred.
What can you do to get more shinies in Pokémon GO?
Unfortunately, not very much at all. It seems to be the result of pure chance. As a matter of fact, the developer Niantic determines the rates at which players may capture Shiny Pokémon, and in most cases, the catch rates for Shiny Pokémon are only increased during special events such as Community Days or Safari Zones, or during Legendary Raids. Unfortunately, there are no resources that increase the likelihood of encountering shiny Pokémon.
Shiny Phantump is, without a doubt, one of the best shiny Pokémon, taking on the appearance of a haunting gray and red cute little creature.
