Can you catch Shiny Dratini in Pokemon GO?

Trainers rejoice, it’s finally that time of year! Pokémon GO is bringing back Community Day Classic: Dratini! This event will arrive on November 5, 2022, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time.

For that three-hour period, Dratini will be spawning at much higher rates. But one of the best parts of Community Day is that not only will trainers be swimming in Dratinis, there’s an increased Shiny rate of 1 in 15, or 4%. This is far better than the average shiny rates on a normal day, where you’d only have a 1 in 500 chance, or 2% chance, of finding a Shiny Pokemon.

What Featured Attack Will You Get on Community Day in Pokemon Go?

With so many Dratinis to catch, it’s likely that you’ll be able to farm enough candies to level up and evolve your Dratini all the way into its final form, Dragonite. And if you do so on November 5 between 2:00 PM and 7:00 PM, your Dragonite is guaranteed to know the Charged Attack Draco Meteor. Draco Meteor as a Charge Attack can be extremely powerful and great for nuking, so this is absolutely a Pokemon you’ll want to farm candies for.

  • You’ll receive three times the Stardust upon capture

Good luck hunting, trainers! May you find the shiny dragon of your dreams.
