How to Catch a Shiny Stufful in Pokémon GO

Encountering a Shiny Stufful in Pokémon GO can be difficult because of its rarity, but there are a few ways players can improve their chances.

Shiny Stufful can be found and caught in Pokémon GO, but it is rare and difficult to encounter. There are over 100 Shiny Pokémon to catch in the game, but finding them outside of Community Day events isn’t an easy task. There are a few items that increase the possibility of encountering Pokémon GO’s Shiny Stufful and improve the chance of capturing it before it runs away.

Stufful is a Normal- and Fighting-type Pokémon that can evolve into Bewear with 400 candies. Bewear can be a powerful Pokémon to use in league battles, so catching Stufful and saving up enough candies to evolve it is worthwhile. The regular form of Stufful is pink and white with brown legs. For the Shiny version of Stufful, the pink part is replaced with yellow.

Along with their regular forms, Shiny Stufful and Shiny Bewear made their debut on April 23, 2022, in the Community Day event for Pokémon GO. During the three-hour event, players were able to catch a lot of Stufful, and more encounters made it more likely that a Shiny would be found. Although the event has ended, there are still a few ways that players can increase their chances of finding and catching a Shiny Stufful in Pokémon GO.

Best Ways To Find A Shiny Stufful In Pokémon GO

The best way to attract a Stufful quickly is to use an incense and a lure at a PokéStop. Increasing the number of Pokémon that players can encounter will make it easier to find Stufful, but there’s no guarantee. Unfortunately, there are no lures that work specifically for Normal- or Fighting-type Pokémon, but a regular lure will still attract them. Walking around and using an incense, as well as a lure, can make it easier to find Shiny Stufful.

Once a Shiny Stufful is found, a Razz Berry or Golden Razz Berry can be used to increase the chances of catching it. However, players may want to use a Pinap or Silver Pinap Berry in Pokémon GO to get more candies because it will cost 400 to evolve Stufful into Bewear. Candies can be earned for catching and transferring Pokémon. Rare candies, which are earned by winning raids, can also be used to increase the number of Stufful candies a player has.

Since Stufful is a new Pokémon in the game, it’s possible it will appear in more Community Day events in the future. In the meantime, players can use items to try to encounter Shiny Stufful in the wild. Although the chances of catching Shiny Stufful outside of an event are much lower, there’s still a low probability of finding one. Shiny Stufful is just one of many Shiny Pokémon that can be found and caught in Pokémon GO.
