Pokémon GO is celebrating the 2022 harvest moon with a Clefairy Commotion! Drawn out into the moonlight, Clefairy will be spawning more frequently in the wild on the night of Sept. 10. During this time, trainers will have plenty of opportunities to get their hands on the fairy-typed Pokémon.

Taking place during Pokémon GO’s Psychic Spectacular, the Clefairy Commotion is fundamentally a prolonged Spotlight Event. Read on to find out more of what to expect during this limited-time event and whether a shiny version of the generation one Pokémon will be appearing.

Pokémon GO Clefairy Event: Time and Date

Starting Sept. 10, at 6 p.m. local time, this generation one fairy-typed Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild until 9 p.m. local time. This gives trainers three hours to participate in the event and catch as many Clefairy as they can. Additionally, trainers can take this time to farm Clefairy candy. For 50 candy, Clefairy can evolve into Clefable.

Pokémon GO Clefairy Event: Will there be a Shiny?

Shiny Clefairy will be available during this time, and be sure not to miss it! Though its shiny form looks very similar to its base form there are some key differences: the tips of its ears are light green, in comparison to its usual brown, and Clefairy is slightly paler. To optimize your chances of catching a shiny Clefairy, using incense will attract even more of the wild Pokémon to your location, increasing the number of times you encounter it.
