How to catch Shiny Alolan Geodude in Pokémon GO

Earn a cheese-colored rock for your Pokémon GO collection. Here's how to get the Orange Shiny Alolan Geodude.

Shiny Pokémon are added to Pokémon GO all the time, and one of the first Alolan regionals to get an alternate scheme was Shiny Alolan Geodude. This version changes the dark-slate grey rock Pokémon into one with a deep orange hue and dark features.

These colors transfer to the final evolution of Golem. So while the orange isn't as deep, it's still a great addition to your Shiny collection. But first, you need to find one, and with Pokémon GO's May 2022 Community Day nudging closer, now is the perfect time to catch one.

Admittedly, catching Shiny Alolan Geodude in Pokémon GO will take a lot of luck, and there are a few ways to boost those chances under the right conditions. One of those will come down to increasing the sheer volume of catches.

Any time you encounter a Geodude, you'll have a chance for Shiny, even if it's a low probability overall. Therefore, your chances increase proportionally with more catch attempts.

When you see an Alolan Geodude on the map, you can tap and begin the encounter, and the colors will show right away. You don't need to catch the Pokémon to see whether it's Shiny or not.

To increase your odds of catching a Shiny one, you can use Incense Lures or Poké Stop Lures to attract more Geodudes. This trick will only work if Alolan Geodude is part of the spawn rotations within the game, though.

Nevertheless, considering that the Community Day for Alolan Geodude will start soon and GO Fest is right around the corner, there will be ample opportunity to catch a Shiny.

Completing the research tasks tied to Alolan Geodude will also give you a relatively high chance of a shiny with each encounter. But, of course, the odds will go down as events end and Geodude becomes more of a rare find.

Pokémon GO May 2022 Community Day - Start Date and Time

The next Community Day will be the best opportunity to get your own Shiny Graveler and Golem with an Electric-Type secondary. The event will take place on 21st May 2022 from 11 AM to 2 PM local time.

Usually, there will be about six hours during a Community Day event where players can participate in the catching and research.

However, this time, players will only have a few hours to get all the Rock Pokémon they need, with Geodude taking the spotlight. Afterward, you can use the ticket to continue your rewards.

And that's all. For more awesome content, check out our section dedicated to Pokémon GO news, guides, updates, and more!
