Pokemon GO: How To Get Shiny Feebas And Shiny Milotic

Pokemon GO Shiny Feebas And Shiny Milotic

With a boosted spawn rate during the event, players can encounter numerous Feebas quickly. One can use different Pokemon GO items and the Weather Boost effect to increase the already boosted Feebas spawn rate further. The more Feebas spawn, the faster one may catch up to its Shiny spawn odds.

Pokemon GO Lure Modules and Incense combined with the Weather Boost function can boost spawn rates significantly. While using the items individually can also increase the Pokemon spawn rate, using them simultaneously can stack their effect and significantly boost the spawn rate.

Feebas experiences boosted spawn rates in areas with rainy weather. Players must first look for PokeStops or Gyms in rainy weather, attach a Lure Module, activate Incense, and walk around the place. This strategy maximizes Feebas spawn rates in featured events, and with the already boosted spawn rate, it might allow players to catch up to Feebas Shiny odds.

Once players get their hands on a Shiny Feebas, they can evolve it into a Shiny Milotic. The evolution requirement is 100 Candy in Pokemon GO, and trainers must walk 20 KM with Feebas as their Buddy Pokemon. After meeting all the requirements, one can finally add Shiny Milotic to their collection.
