How to Catch Shiny Clauncher in Pokemon GO

Since Clauncher is brand new to the Shiny pool, its spawn rate is still being discovered. It seems, however, that it’s considered a common Pokemon with a 1 in 500 Shiny spawn rate. Thanks goodness, because with the increased spawn rate, there’s a greater chance you’ll face off against a Shiny Clauncher.

However, prepare your walking shoes, because you may need to cover some ground to have the best chance of encountering one near water. In addition to appearing in the wild, Shiny Clauncher will also be one of the potential Pokemon Encounters for completing event Field Research tasks.

To boost your chance of running into a Shiny Clauncher, be sure to:

  • Use any Rainy Lure Modules you may have. During the event, Rainy Lures will last 4x longer than usual.
  • Using incense during this time is advised as well. You want to bring in as many Water-type Pokemon as possible to increase your odds.

That’s how to catch a Shiny Clauncher in Pokemon GO. Be one of the first and impress your friends by catching this funky lobster. For more assistance with PoGO, check out the rest of our Pokemon GO guides, including how to beat certain Raid Pokemon or what to do with Shadow Shards.
