Throughout the past week or so, there have been plenty of events in Pokemon GO. If players want to catch themselves a Shiny Magnemite, they need to participate in one of these events. The event players will want to participate in this time around is called The Festival of Lights.

The main focus of this new event will be the introduction of Tadbulb and Bellibolt. But there are plenty of other Pokemon to catch like Shiny Magnemite. If players want to get their hands on this Pokemon, they should try catching it from November 7th until November 12, 8 pm local time.

Now that the Shiny Magnemite is available in Pokemon GO, it is time to catch it. The key important note is that Shiny Magnemite can only be caught in the wild right now. That means it will not come to players through eggs or research tasks. There are also no fixed events for Shiny Magnemite either.

That means it is time to get lucky. Players should essentially encounter every single Magnemite that they can. The odds for Shiny Magnemite are currently increased in Pokemon GO. That means the more Magnemite players encounter, the more likely they will find a Shiny Magnemite. Once one is found, we highly recommend using a Razz Berry and an Ultra Ball to have the highest chance of catching it.
