One of the best ways to catch a Shiny Oddish is simply to just keep catching more Oddish in the wild. Each Pokémon you catch has a very small chance of being a Shiny, and there aren't any items or tricks you can do that will increase this chance.

Your chances will increase significantly if you're able to find a Community Day, Safari Zone Event, or other Pokémon GO event where Oddish is featured. During events like these, not only will Oddish spawn more often when it's featured, but they will often be more likely to be Shiny. Many of these events are virtual, too, so you won't have to travel in order to participate.

Starting today, 20th April, and lasting until 25th April 2022, players will be able to find Shiny Oddish more often thanks to the Pokémon GO Sustainability Week Event. Oddish isn't the only Pokémon that will become more common during this event, though, so trainers may need to put in some effort to find a Shiny Oddish.

You're probably glad to find out that you can, in fact, catch a Shiny Oddish in Pokémon GO! Be sure to try to catch a Shiny Oddish while their spawn rate is elevated. Good luck in your journey and in adding this coveted Pokémon to your party.
