Pokemon GO: How To Get Shiny Foongus
Players must know there is no surefire way in Pokemon GO to get a wild Shiny encounter; one should encounter several Standard variants to match a monster’s Shiny odds. There is only one way to encounter several wild Standard variants: by increasing its wild spawn rate during featured events like Spotlight Hour. Trainers can use different items like Lure Modules, Incenses, and the Weather Boost effect to increase the monster spawn rate in the wild.
Remember that Lure Modules attach to a Pokemon GO PokeStop or Gym and increase the wild spawn rate only around that area. In comparison, Incense attaches to the player and increases the spawn rate wherever they walk. However, the Weather Boost is a passive skill that increases specific monster spawn rates around areas with particular weather conditions.
Foongus experiences Weather Boost around areas with sunny and cloudy weather. One must find a PokeStop or Gym around such weathered areas, attach a Lure Module, activate a Pokemon GO Incense, and then traverse around that specific PokeStop or Gym. Doing so can stack their effects, significantly increasing Foongus wild spawn rate during events featuring the monster.
Pokemon GO trainers can make use of this strategy to significantly increase wild Foongus spawn rate and encounter numerous Standard variants. It could help them match the monster’s Shiny odds and get a Shiny Foongus encounter. While that is the most favorable scenario, the Shiny encounter isn’t guaranteed. Players must repeat the same strategy until they encounter a Shiny Foongus.
