We've put together a comprehensive guide for trainers looking to obtain Dartrix in Pokémon GO.

How to Get Dartrix in Pokémon GO

Dartrix made its debut in Pokémon GO alongside its evolutionary counterparts, Rowlet and Decidueye, during the Welcome to Alola event starting March 1, 2022. At the time of writing, the only Pokémon to encounter Dartrix is to evolve Rowlet.

Trainers can evolve their Rowlet into Dartrix using 25 candies.

Can Dartix Be Shiny in Pokémon GO?

No, Dartrix cannot be shiny in Pokémon GO.

This is likely a result of the short length of time this Pokémon has been available. It's rare for Niantic Labs to release a Pokémon and its shiny variant at the same time. Trainers may have to wait some time before Dartrix's shiny form becomes available.

Shiny Dartrix takes on a significantly more blue hue. Its lime green accents turn turquoise and its brown cowl becomes a sea-green. Its feet also become more red than orange.
