This cat is on fire!

Litten Pokemon GO

We’re more than halfway through March 2023 and that means the second set of Spotlight Hour Pokemon is upon us in Pokemon GO. Starting on March 21, the Generation VII Fire-type starter will be in the Spotlight for Trainers to catch, and of course, it’s important to know if you can catch a shiny Litten or not.

Not every Pokemon in GO can be shiny, which is different than the mainline games and makes finding shiny forms a lot more complicated. Most of the first few generations have their alternative colors available now, but some of the latest additions to the game are still missing, and we’ll cover shiny Litten specifically in our Pokemon GO guide.

Pokemon GO – Can You Catch Shiny Litten?

At this point in the game, there is no way to catch a shiny Litten or any of the shiny forms for starters in Generation VII. The rare alternative color schemes are expected to make a debut at some point in 2023, and many are hoping that they will be announced in the summertime.

This doesn’t mean that the Spotlight Hour is a complete waste of time though. If you don’t have an Incineroar yet, then this is a great way to earn some candies that you can use to evolve your Litten. You could even just save the candy for when the Fire Cat Pokemon finally gets a shiny form.

During the March 21 Spotlight Hour, there will also be a double Stardust catch bonus for any Litten that you catch from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. The bonus applies to any catch, but it will be rare for anything else to spawn around you in that time. If you already have everything you need in Pokemon GO though, it’s not the end of the world to sit this one out.

And that is all. For more of the latest news, updates, and guides, head over to the dedicated Pokémon GO section of our site.
