In this guide, we will see how to get a shiny Chesnaught in Pokémon GO.
Pokémon GO – Can Chesnaught Be Shiny?
You can catch a shiny Chespin and evolve it into a shiny Chesnaught. Here we will see how to get them in Pokémon GO.
You will get an increased chance of getting a shiny Chespin during the Community Day Event that features it. It will be a common spawn, so getting a shiny Chespin is guaranteed during this time. The odds of getting the Shiny is 1/25, and you can further increase those chances under certain circumstances. Hunting for Chespin under Sunny weather conditions has a further improved rate of getting a shiny Chespin to spawn.
Sunny weather is ideal to boost the spawn rate for Grass, Ground, and Fire-type Pokémon. You can also trigger more Chespin to spawn by using Incense and Lure Modules. Incense will only work if the Trainer is on the move, and is usually on the Trainer, so wherever they are, the Pokémon will spawn. Lure Modules, on the other hand, are attached to PokeStops and Gyms, so you should hang around those areas to get a Chespin.
Once you get a shiny Chespin, you can feed it Chespin Candy to evolve it to its evolution forms; Quilladin and Chesnaught. All forms will be shiny if you caught a shiny Chespin, and it will require a total of 125 Chespin Candy to evolve it to all its forms. Quilladin requires 25 Candies to evolve, while Chesnaught needs 100 candies to evolve.
