Shiny Quagsire in Pokémon GO is one that many trainers have their sights set on at the moment thanks to the live special event that launched alongside The Game Awards show Thursday.
A welcome surprise, Wooper Watch dropped during the special event, increasing spawns of Wooper as well as making Shiny Wooper and Shiny Quagsire available for the very first time.
Shiny Quagsire Pokémon GO: How to Get
Quagsire is a Water, Ground-type Johto region Pokémon that evolves from Wooper after being fed 50 candies. In order get a Shiny Quagsire, trainers must first encounter a Shiny Wooper and evolve it.
While the spawn rate for Woopers is similar to its high Community Day spawn rate, it appears its shiny rate is painfully low, so it will take some patience as usual but now is the best time to get lucky.
Be sure to use Incenses when out in the world to increase the spawn rate of Pokemon and increase the chance of running into a Shiny Wooper.
As standard with going after Shiny Pokémon, trainers will need to Shiny check each Wooper, as they won't be able to know their spawned Wooper is shiny until they tap into the encounter.
While it is not required to catch each Wooper, it is recommended since trainers still need the Pokémon-specific candies and XL candies, and one might even be a 100% Shadow-type.
Here is a rundown of the Wooper Watch event details, which are live until Friday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. EST.
- More Wooper are appearing in the wild
- Increased Incense effectiveness
- 2x Catch Stardust
- Team GO Rocket balloons appearing more often
- Team GO Rocket appearing more often at PokéStops
- Shadow Pokémon can forget the Charged Attack Frustration with a Charged TM
