Can Duskull be Shiny in Pokémon GO? If you're getting into the Halloween spirit by hunting for Duskull during Spotlight Hours, you'll be glad to know that Duskull can be Shiny in Pokémon GO.

Can Duskull be Shiny in Pokémon GO?

Duskull may be more common during Spotlight Hours, but you won't get any increased chances to find Shiny ones. Unlike Community Day events, Spotlight Hours don't increase your chances of finding a Shiny of the featured Pokémon. You'll find a Shiny Duskull roughly once every 450 times.

Shiny Pokémon don't appear on the map as Shiny. You'll have to engage each Duskull you find. Once you've found one, you'll get the signature Shiny sparkle to confirm that the Pokémon is indeed Shiny.

A Shiny Duskull is hard to miss, as its normally gray body is red. When it evolves into Dusclops, it keeps the red coloring. Dusknoir, the family's third form, ditches the red for a sickly bluish-gray.

In battle, Dusknoir is unfortunately outclasses by many other Ghost type Pokémon. Grab this one for the Pokédex.
