How to catch a Shiny Fearow is one of the most common questions trainers are asking at the moment now that the New Year’s event in Pokémon GO is officially set to kickoff next week.

This is one of the rare times where trainers will have had the chance to catch Shiny Fearow, which they will be able to do now that it is set to be one of eight Pokémon available to encounter in the wild during the upcoming New Year’s event. Here's how to catch a Shiny Fearow in Pokémon GO.

Pokémon GO Shiny Fearow: How to Catch

After initially being released with Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto in February 2021, the Shiny form of Fearow will be available globally once again simply in the wild with the upcoming New Year's event.

From Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, at 10 p.m. to Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022, at 8 p.m. local time, trainers might be able to encounter a Shiny Fearow.

Aside from its kiwi green feathers, the Shiny version of the Normal, Flying-type Pokémon stands out from the rest of the crowd thanks to its golden beak and claws.

Of course, actually finding a Shiny Fearow will take a lot of patience and luck, but at least trainers will now know if they have a sudden window to do so in the first place.
