Pokemon GO Shiny Misdreavus: How to catch Shiny Misdreavus, Mismagius in Pokemon GO? (Pic: NIANTIC)

Pokemon GO players aren't exactly short of Shiny Pokemon to capture at the moment. Especially not with the current December Community Day and the flurry of Shiny Pokemon from past events.

Needless to say though, if you're not tired of trying to catch the 120+ Shiny Pokemon in the game already we have some good news for you. There's another two available as of this evening.

That's because players can now catch the Shiny Ghost Type Pokemon, Misdreavus.

This looks to have been added as part of the games new December Field Research Quests although there will be more ways to encounter the Pokemon in the game, too.

Keep reading for everything you need to know about catching yourself that brand new Shiny Misdreavus.


Shiny Misdreavus has only just this second been made available in the game, so for the time being, we're stilling compiling all the ways you can encounter a Shiny Green Misdreavus in the game.

Although, as soon as that's made clear we'll be sure to update this story.

Equally, it's worth remembering that it's not possible to encounter a Shiny Mismagius.

Not just because you can only find the first stage of a Shiny Pokemon but also because Mismagius isn't found in the wild.

Also, this goes without saying but when you do find that Shiny Misdreavus you will need 100 candy AND a Sinnoh Stone to evolve yourself a Shiny Mismagius.

Keep reading as we've broken down all of the potential ways you might be able to encounter a Shiny Misdreavus moving forward.

Egg Hatches:

At the time of writing Misdreavus can hatch from 2KM eggs.

Raid Battles:

Misdreavus is not currently a raid boss, so that rules that option out.

In the Wild:

Misdreavus is spawning in the wild; as mentioned it's not clear if there are increased spawning rates at present, but it's best to presume not.

However, to increase your chances of encountering a shiny, you want to go somewhere spawning as many Misdreavus as possible. Especially since Silph Road Research has suggested previously that the base wild encounter shiny rate is roughly 1 in 450.

We'd suggest that to boost your chances you should head over to the Silph Road Global Nest Atlas to find your nearest Misdreavus nest, because obviously, the more you encounter, the higher your odds for finding a shiny.

With Field Research:

Currently, you can encounter Misdreavus by completing the following Field Research Quest: Transfer 10 Pokemon.
