With the upcoming Gothita Spotlight Hour, fans are preparing to get a bunch of Ghosts on their team. During the event tomorrow, players will encounter increases in spawns, as well as bonus rewards. There has been no mention of a special boost to the spawn rate of shiny variants. The Gothita Spotlight Hour will be hosted on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021. It will be from 6pm to 7pm local time in your time zone. The game will once again have another set of events for players to complete.
How to Get Shiny Gothita, Gothorita, and Gothitelle in Pokémon Go
During that time, you can also get a 2x bonus to capture XP for any Gothita captured. So stock up on Pokéballs before then so you’re ready for the festivities. And if you’re shiny hunting, you better bring along a good luck charm. The odds of capturing a shiny Gothita, unfortunately, are not very high At the base rate, assuming no spawn changes, there’s a one in 425 chance of the Gothita being shiny. You can’t force shiny spawns, so you have to hope for good odds in your favor.
Shiny rates change for Pokémon featured during Community Day events. The standard shiny rate on these days is 1 in 25. That doesn’t apply tomorrow though.
The best hope you have is to hunt for nests. You’ll find a lot more Gothitas in specific areas when you find a spawning nest out in the world. These can be very rare and hard to find, so it’s best to know your area well. If you have trouble finding them, you can use the Silph Road Nest Atlas to find nests marked by other players.
Since the shiny Gothita in Pokémon Go is a part of the original Gen 1 roster, it has a shiny form. in fact, all the original 150 Pokémon have shiny forms in the mobile game. Gothita’s shiny form has been out for some time, so any hardcore player should likely have seen it at least once. And if you get very lucky tomorrow, you might see it again.
