Losing Shiny Spododo in Pokémon Go, dream shattered

A Pokémon Go player was shocked after he missed the chance to catch a rare shiny Pokémon.

Although Pokémon Go has made it easier to catch and transfer shiny Pokémon between games, the chances of encountering them remain very low, even during events where shiny encounter rates are higher than usual.

There are also some reservations about catching shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Go, since the player relies entirely on catching and berries. In video games, players can at least increase their chances with status effect attacks, putting enemy Pokémon to sleep.

Shiny Spododo in Pokémon Go is a very popular Pokémon, because it has one of the best color schemes among all the shiny Pokémon. The base Spododo has a dull color scheme, while the shiny Spododo has a more vibrant red, making it look like a character from the Super Mario Bros. games.

The fact that the player missed their chance to capture a shiny Spododo means that they may never see another one again. Fortunately, he can also attempt to capture it in Generation 7 or 8 games, increasing his chances with the Chroma Charm.
