Pokemon Go has a number of different variants like Mega, with the most sought-after one being the Shiny. While there is no guaranteed method to get Shiny Skorupi and Shiny Drapion, players can increase the chances of catching a Shiny Pokemon through a number of different ways. Let’s look at how to get Shiny Skorupi and Shiny Drapion in Pokemon Go with the incense day event. 

How to get Shiny Skorupi in Pokemon Go

There are many ways to get Shiny variants in Pokemon GO like defeating raid bosses, simply running into them in the wild or after completing Research quests, etc. While there is no foolproof way of getting a Shiny, you can increase your odds of running into one. One of the best chances to get Shiny Skorupi is to capitalize on Incense Day: Skorupi events. Incense Day events usually last for 7-8 hours.  Skorupi is a dual Bug and Poison-type; it experiences a boost during both Bug-type Incense Encounters and Poison-type Incense Encounters. Events boost featured monsters' spawn rate, so there is a higher chance of encountering Shiny Skorupi. Although the chances of coming across are higher, a Shiny encounter isn’t guaranteed, and Pokemon GO players still need to develop an effective strategy to acquire it. Skorupi experiences a spawn boost during cloudy and rainy weather.

Spawn rates and individual Shiny possibilities influence Shiny encounters. High spawn rates may lead to Shiny encounters by helping catch up to a monster’s odds. One can boost the Pokemon spawn rate by utilizing Pokemon GO items. There is approximately a 1 in 500 chance for a wild Pokémon to spawn as a Shiny. The rate appears to be eight times higher - a 1 in 62.5 chance, or 1.6% - for very rare wild spawns, certain Shadow Pokémon, and certain raid Pokémon. Pokemon GO Lure Modules and Incense can increase the spawn rate at specific locations. There is also a Weather Boost Feature, which can elevate Pokemon spawn rate by attaching a Lure Module to a Gym and enhance the overall strength of specific monsters during particular weather conditions.

Incense Day events also offer multiple Field Research tasks and rewards. Completing the Field Research tasks also offers encounters with Skorupi, and it has a chance to be Shiny.
