Tuesday, April 21st, will see Wobbuffet appearing more frequently in the wild for the fan-favorite mobile game. Players who are looking to take advantage of this increased chance of getting this creature on April 21st will be able to do so starting at 6 PM local time. Trainers will also have the opportunity to encounter and catch the shiny version of this character during this increased appearance time for the creature.

Players will also be able to earn twice as much candy than usual for transferring characters during this time, so large amounts of candy will also be up for grabs for players to obtain in addition to a Shiny Wobbuffet. 

Wobbuffet and its shiny version are psychic types that are vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, and Dark-type moves. You will find that the max CP for this specific character is 1,026, so it is somewhat formidable to have on your Pokemon GO team for future battles if you can acquire one during the increased appearance time for it on April 21st. 

“If two or more Wobbuffet meet, they will turn competitive and try to outdo each other’s endurance. However, they may try to see which one can endure the longest without food. Trainers need to beware of this habit,” according to the official description of this Pokemon GO character. 

There is no doubt that plenty of Trainers will be taking some time on April 21st to see if they can acquire the shiny version of this character starting at 6 PM local time on Tuesday, April 21st. However, do not worry if you don’t catch one during on April 21st, as players can get this character through evolution by feeding 25 candies to Wynaut.
