Here are the methods of catching a Fomantis during the Solstice Horizons event:
- Encountering Fomantis in the wild.

- Completing field research tasks that reward Fomantis.
There you go! This adorable grass Pokemon will very soon be available in its shiny form. A new shiny is always an exciting prospect and I too will be participating in the event in the hopes of catching at least two of them so that I can evolve one into a shiny Lurantis for my collection! Shiny Fomantis is not the only new addition to Pokemon GO during the Solstice Horizons event though! Make sure that you are up to date on what is new, so you do not miss out during the limited event window!
