How to Find (& Catch) Shiny Lickitung in Pokémon GO

Shiny Lickitung is available in Pokemon Go for capture. This guide will show players how they can find and collect this yellowPokemon. Recently, Pokemon Go hosted its first-ever Kanto Tour event. During this event, players were able to encounter all 151 of the original Pokemon and complete special research tasks for 12 hours. Not only that, but all 151 Pokemon had their Shiny forms added to the game, some for the very first time. This was a ticketed event, meaning players needed to pay to participate but the game also had limited research to complete for free-to-play players. Lickitung is one of the Pokemon that was given a Sinnoh evolution later down the line. This guide will show players how they can obtain their own.

Pokemon Go is the most forgiving Pokemon title when it comes to handing out Shiny Pokemon. The game continues to host several events every month to increase the player’s chance of encountering a Shiny Pokemon. From Spotlight Hours to Community Day, Pokemon Go provides the player with tons of options to find these elusive creatures. Although, finding Shiny Pokemon is still completely up to luck. What might take one player a few minutes can take another player several months to find it. Here are a few ways for players to encounter a Shiny Lickitung in Pokemon Go.

The best way to find a Shiny Lickitung is to focus on finding a regular one first. Lickitung counts as a rare spawn, even for Kanto Pokemon. Currently, the game is hosting its Kanto Celebration Event. During this time, Pokemon from the Kanto region have an increased spawn rate for a limited time. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that Lickitung will make an appearance regardless. This is amongst one of the harder Shiny Pokemon to encounter. Not only that, but Lickitung is also not available in eggs or raid battles, which would be other prime methods of finding it.

The best thing to do would be to use an Incense and a regular Lure Module to increase the spawn rate of Pokemon. Make sure to do this before the Kanto Celebration Event comes to a close. Afterward, Pokemon from other regions will begin to spawn more frequently, making it much more challenging to find a Lickitung. Pokemon Go will likely host an event in the future to help players find a Shiny Lickitung. Until then, good luck trainers.

Pokemon Go is available now on iOS and Android.
