Shiny Tentacool Pokémon GO: How to Obtain

The first event announced by Niantic in the string of upcoming events is Supereffective week, which is set to kick off Nov. 19 at 4 p.m. ET and run for the entire week. During this time, shiny Tentacool will make its debut in Pokémon GO. Tentacools will have an increased spawn rate, and players will have a higher chance of encountering them in their shiny form.

Shiny Tentacools differ from their normal form as they have a more purple-blue body with green crystals instead of red ones.

The main theme of the Supereffective event focuses on Pokémon that are ideal for taking on Team GO Rocket. These Pokémon will have increased spawn rates, appear more frequently in raids, and will be featured in Field Research tasks.

Other bonuses during the event include:

  • 2x Stardust from Trainer Battles
  • More Potions and Revives from Pokéstops
  • Guaranteed Charged TM from Three-Star Raids
