How to Get Shiny Jigglypuff in Pokemon Go

Jigglypuff is one of the cutest Pokemon to have ever been made. Full stop. It’s a circle. It’s soft. It has big eyes. And if it’s shiny, those baby-blues turn the perfect shade of sea glass green. What’s not to love?

And because it’s a Fairy, as of Generation VI, it also features prominently during the Twinkling Fantasy Pokemon GO event.

You can find Jigglypuff in a number of ways. Here’s all three:

  • As a Wild Encounter. Just wander around and there’s a chance it might spawn.
  • As a Snapshot Encounter. There’s a chance it will photobomb you when you take a photo. This can only happen twice a day.
  • At One-Star Raids. Jigglypuff, Marill, Axew, and Deino are all part of One-Star Raids.

Because there are so many opportunities to encounter Jigglypuff, you have an increased chance of finding it Shiny.

The only way to get a Shiny Jigglypuff is to encounter as many of them as possible and hope for the best. The theorized Shiny Encounter rate in Pokemon GO is 1 in 500 or a .2% chance. That means you’ll likely have to meet as many Jigglypuff as possible during the Twinkling Fantasy event if you hope to encounter a Shiny Jigglypuff.

Good luck, trainer!
