Can Rufflet be Shiny in Pokemon GO – Answered

There are so many fantastic bird Pokemon in Pokemon GO, but Rufflet has a certain charm. It’s a very solid baby Pokemon in PvP, with solid stats in Attack and Stamina. And while it actually falls behind in ranking once it evolves, it’s still a Pokemon worth grabbing.

Especially since it has a Shiny form in Pokemon GO!

How to Find Rufflet in Pokemon GO

One of the best ways is Rufflet’s Community Day, where the bird Pokemon will become extra common, and you’ll get double the Stardust for catching it.

Your other options for catching Rufflet in Pokemon GO are:

  • Hatching Rufflet from a 2 KM egg.
  • Using a lure on a Pokemon GO Stop on windy days. Use your incense and walk between Lure’d Pokemon GO stops to increase your chances. Rufflet, like all birds, has an increased spawn during windy weather.
  • Encountering Rufflet in the wild in all biomes.

Rufflet is an uncommon encounter, but with enough luck and persistence, this adorable ball of fluff can be yours. But that’s not the only rare Pokemon you can add to your roster.
