Pokémon GO has arguably been one of the decade’s best and most entertaining games, thanks to its unlimited fun through the leveling and stacking up of the Pokémon.
Every now and then, the game offers a certain kind of leeway to the players by presenting them with events such as Chinchou spotlight hour, and we’re finally getting a spotlight hour event for Dunsparce.
If you’re new to the game and have recently got to catch Dunsparce, you may have questions about what kind of Pokémon it is and whether it can be shiny.
Dunsparce is indeed a rare catch in Pokémon GO that is hard to spot. This Land Snake Pokémon can also exist in the shiny form in Pokémon GO, but they are twice as hard as catching normal Dunsparce.
Dunsparce in Pokémon GO: Can It Be Shiny and How To Catch It?
Dunsparce, in truth, is a normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II, but due to its nature of burrowing into the ground whenever spotted, it is categorized as a rare catch by the players.
It doesn’t mean you can’t catch it at all, but the exact opposite. You can catch it with a little effort as long as you know where they spawn regularly. Some of the best locations include the Dark Cave, Route 208, and Route 12.
To answer the question of the day, Dunsparce can be shiny, and if you haven’t gotten it yet, there’s some good news because its spotlight hour will be in motion today from 6 PM to 7 PM local time.
During the Dunsparce Spotlight Hour event, participants will have an increased spawn rate as well as get a 2 x Catch Stardust as a special bonus, meaning the chances are higher to catch a shiny Dunsparce.
If you want to ensure your chances are even higher, you can also use in-game items like Lure Modules and Incense that attach to PokeStops and Gyms, as well as the Weather Boost function since Dunsparce only spawns during cloudy weather.
If you follow all these steps, you can even catch multiple shiny Dunsparce, making your catalog look good compared to your friends.
That said, you need to be quick because the spotlight hour only lasts 60 minutes, which passes faster than you can imagine, given Pokémon GO’s immersive experience.
All About The Dunsparce Pokémon
Dunsparce is a snake/serpent-like Pokémon with yellow in color and blue stripes on his belly. It has a sharp tail that resembles a drill and cute little white wings that allure any player.
They can float in the air for a while using the wings but cannot fly, so their only option is to burrow into the ground using the tail as a drill. It changes into Dudunsparce upon further evolution.
Here are the stats of Dunsparce Pokémon:
- HP: 100
- Attack: 70
- Defense: 70
- Special Attack: 65
- Special Defense: 65
- Speed: 45
Its abilities include Serene Grace, which doubles the chances of a specific move; Run Away, which allows users to escape from the wild battles with other Pokémon; and Rattled, which increases speed when hit by a bug, dark, or ghost-type.
