To celebrate The Game Awards, Wooper will be more common until Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. EST. Niantic says that Shiny Wooper can be found if you're lucky, as the Shiny Rate will not be boosted for the event.

That means you'll find a Shiny Wooper once every 450 encounters. Shiny Pokémon don't appear as Shiny on the map. You'll know the Wooper is Shiny when you go to capture it and see the signature sparkle over it. The Wooper will also be pink instead of blue.

Wooper evolves into Quagsire, and is one of the best Water types to use in the Great League. It becomes more purple as it evolves. In battle, Quagsire has only one weakness in Grass. With a variety of type covering moves, it can be a catch-all against many of the threats in Great League.

In addition to Water, Ground and Rock-type moves, it can learn Poison-type moves, which helps it take out any Fairy types you'll encounter. Quagsire is highly versatile and will make a great addition to your Great League team as a Shiny.
