How to Get Shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokemon Go

Pumpkaboo, like every other Pokemon in the game, has a random chance of appearing in the wild. However, during the Halloween 2022 event, Pumpkaboo will appear more frequently in the wild, giving players an increased chance of stumbling upon one. During this event, Pumpkaboo will be wearing a spooky festival costume and have a chance of being shiny.

So not only can you obtain a shiny Pumpkaboo, but an even more exclusive one. That’s double the bang for your buck.

The easiest way to try and find a shiny in the wild is to pop incense, which will increase the amount of wild Pokemon that spawn around you for a set number of minutes. This is the most efficient way to get Pokemon to spawn and increase your odds of finding Pumpkaboo.

You can also go to a nearby PokeStop and use a Lure Module to bring more Pokemon to this area. The nice thing about Lure Modules is that other players can drop them too. So it might take you on a real-life adventure to find one, but start making your way toward any PokeStops with Lure modules activated. Between these and your Incense, this is the best way to get a shiny Pumpkaboo.

Of course, a decent amount of luck will play into this, but if you keep at it, you’ll hopefully run into one. Just make sure you have enough Poke Balls to catch it.

Well, that’s everything you need to know about how to get Shiny Pumpkaboo in Pokemon Go. Check out part 1 of the Halloween event that is going on now.
