Pokemon Go, the mobile game developed by Niantic, has been going strong since its release back in 2016. New Pokemon are constantly being added to catch up with the almost 900-Pokemon-deep National Pokedex. A large part of the collection aspect is finding Shiny versions of your favorite ‘mon. Some folks have wondered, can Ampharos be Shiny in Pokemon Go? Well, we have the answer for you.
Can Ampharos be Shiny in Pokemon Go? – Answered
So, the short answer is, yes, Ampharos can be Shiny in Pokemon Go. Now, getting a Shiny Ampharos is more challenging than it might seem. Shiny chances are extremely low in any Pokemon game. Pokemon Go is slightly more lenient when it comes to Shiny odds so your chances are higher than in other titles but still not by much.
Finding an Ampharos in the wild is a tall order and usually only happens during specific events. If you want a Shiny, you’re going to want to find a Shiny Mareep of Flaaffy, which are the pre-evolved forms. This is your best chance of capturing yourself a Shiny Ampharos.
There’s no one way to go about this, but your best option is dropping Lure Modules at PokeStops across your area. Attract as many Pokemon as you can, hoping for a Shiny Mareep or Flaaffy to then evolve into Ampharos.
Of course, your other option is to keep your eyes peeled on the Pokemon Go website every time an event rolls around. Sometimes during events, certain Pokemon will appear more frequently and even have increased Shiny odds.
