Shiny Beartic in Pokemon GO is one of the newest additions to the game as Niantic continues to add Pokemon from the Unova Region into the game. Here’s everything you need to know in order to catch a Shiny Beartic in Pokemon GO.

Since Beartic is an evolution of the Pokemon Cubchoo, the best way to obtain a shiny Beartic is to evolve a shiny Cubchoo by giving it 50 Cubchoo candies. If you’re looking to skip this step and catch a shiny Beartic right away, be prepared to wait a long time, as their already low capture rate of 15% drops significantly if you’re looking to catch a shiny. 

The Glacial Lure Module on any Pokestop can definitely help increase the spawn rates of Beartic, as well as many other Ice Type Pokemon like Delibird or Cryogonal.

Shiny or not, Beartic is a solid addition to any gym or raid-faring party. Its max CP tops out at 3042 with a high attack of 233. When using a Beartic for your Gym or Raid party, make sure to use one that knows Ice Punch, as the STAB damage provided by that move is nothing short of staggering.
