Catching a Shiny Trubbish in Pokémon GO is about to become much easier, thanks to the upcoming Sustainability Week event. For a limited time, players will have markedly increased chances to find the trash-based Pokémon out in the wild. Here's what you need to know to add a Shiny Trubbish to your Pokédex.

How to Catch Shiny Trubbish in Pokémon GO

Sustainability Week is scheduled to kick off Tuesday, April 20 at 10 a.m. local time. It will run through Sunday, April 25, and end that day at 8 p.m. local time. For the duration of the event players will be able to find encounters with Grimer, Drilbur, Ferroseed and, yes, Trubbish. The Trash Bag Pokémon — Poison-Type, of course — will be available in shiny form.

To maximize your chances of finding a Trubbish, aim to go Pokémon hunting on a rainy day during the event, and hit as many Pokémon encounters as you can.
