Pokémon Go is in the final week of its build-up to Pokémon Go Fest 2020. And, in anticipation of this event, Niantic have given the community a final set of tasks and rewards dubbed Friendship alongside a Summer event. While these events last, you have increased odds of capturing a shiny Krabby.
Niantic’s Pokémon Go Fest 2020 two day extravaganza begins on July 25th and ends on the 26th. As a reward for completing the Skill and Battle themed events, Niantic have promised that the following creatures will appear during the weekend: Chimecho, Alomomola, Chansey, Ferroseed, Alolan Grimer, and Alolan Marowak.
However, before any of the above creatures appear throughout the upcoming weekend, here you’ll discover how to get a shiny krabby.
HOW TO CATCH SHINY KRABBY IN POKÉMON GO
You can catch a shiny Krabby in Pokémon Go during the Friendship and Summer event.
Thanks to these events, there is an increased spawn rate for shiny Krabby in Pokémon Go, along with a list of other creatures.
These other creatures include Oddish, Bellsprout, Slowpoke, Tangela, Wingull, Castform, and Hippopotas (via Polygon).
Krabby is a Water-type Pokémon with weaknesses to Electric and Grass-type attacks. Its family involves Kingler and plenty of people on Twitter have caught the shiny.
POKÉMON GO FEST FRIENDSHIP EVENT
The Pokémon Go Fest Friendship and Summer event lasts until July 22nd.
They both finish at 22:00 local time meaning you’ll want to catch a shiny Krabby as soon as possible.
In addition to the aforementioned Pokémon, you’ll also want to capture Summer Hat Pikachu from the wild, as well as Petilil.
