Can Vulpix be Shiny in Pokemon GO? The small, foxy Pokemon is one of the most popular in the game and many fans will be encountering it more often in the wild, as its spawn rates have increased for the Summer Solstice event, which will take place between June 19 and June 24.
Vulpix is a Fire-type Pokemon that looks like a fox with six long, curly tails that can be found in the Kanto region. After receiving 50 candies from its owner, Vulpix will evolve into Ninetails. There are also Alolan versions of both Vulpix and Ninetales that are Ice-types instead of Fire-types.
Can Vulpix be Shiny in Pokemon GO?
Luckily for Pokemon GO fans, there is a Shiny version of Vulpix. It is much more rare than the regular version, but Shiny Vulpix is out there for those willing to look hard enough.
Now is a great time to begin searching for Shiny Vulpix, as the Summer Solstice event is currently taking place. During the event, Vulpix, along with nine other Pokemon including Lunatone and Solrock, will have dramatically increased spawn rates, meaning that Shiny versions will be more common as well.
In addition to having increased spawn rates, Vulpix and Alolan Vulpix are both First Tier Raid bosses during the Summer Solstice event. Players taking part in the event should also be on the lookout for Shiny Lunatone and Shiny Solrock, the two most important Pokemon for this event.
