Let’s look at how to get Shiny Spiritomb in Pokemon Go.

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 Spiritomb, players can increase the chances of catching a Shiny Pokemon through a number of different ways. Let’s look at how to get Shiny Spiritomb in Pokemon Go with the incense day event. 

How to get Shiny Spiritomb in Pokemon Go

Spiritomb was originally added to Pokemon Go in 2018. Since then, Spiritombs have been part of earlier events and community days. While it is rare to come across a Spiritomb, there are ways you can boost their spawn rate and in-turn the rates of shiny spawns. You will encounter a Shiny Spiritomb in approximately one out of every 64 encounters. Since you can only acquire this creature through research, an encounter will totally depend on your luck. However, with the Spiritomb Limited Research event in Pokemon GO you can boost your chances of catching a shiny Spiritomb in Pokemon Go.

The limited-time research started on 19th October 2023, at 10 am local time. You can participate in this limited research until 31st October 2023, at 8 pm local time.

The main reward that most players want to get is the Spiritomb. The rest of the rewards give you candy and access to other Ghost-type Pokemon. You will have to do the following tasks for the Spiritomb Limited Research:

  • Earn 1,080 Stardust - Encounter with Misdreavus

  • Earn 1,080 XP - Encounter with Yamask

  • Make 108 Nice Throws - Encounter with Pumpkaboo (Average Size)

  • Make 108 Curveball Throws - Encounter with Phantump

  • Use 108 Berries to catch Pokemon - Encounter with Shuppet

  • Earn 10,800 XP - Encounter with Litwick

  • Spin 8 PokeStops or Gym Discs - Encounter with Gastly

  • Spin 10 PokeStops or Gym Discs - Encounter with Drifloon

Rewards in the Spiritomb Limited Research in Pokemon GO

You will get the following rewards for completing each of the tasks mentioned above:

  • An encounter with Spiritomb

  • 108 XP

  • Stardust x108

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. 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 enhancing the overall strength of specific monsters during particular weather conditions.
