Shiny Chimchar Pokémon Go: How to catch

Chimchar as a shiny Pokemon does exist and is possible to catch, this Pokémon can be found in the wild. To increase a player's chance of encountering a Chimchar, weather conditions must be sunny to increase the spawn rate. Other methods of obtaining a Spheal are hatching eggs, they appear in:

  • 2-km egg
  • 5-km egg

If a player successfully encounters a shiny Chimchar their fur coat will be a bright-red color; don't forget to feed it Pinap Berries to increase the chances for a catch. It is possible to evolve the shiny Chimchar on all three evolutions without losing its red color.

The maximum stats for this Pokémon each evolution are strong once players invest in their differences. The top evolution of an Inferno can hold its own in a gym once conquered and placed to defend.
