Can Finneon Be Shiny In Pokémon GO?

The Pokémon GO Safari Zone: Goyang live event is still active in South Korea at writing; however, its next location, Taipei City, can expect plenty of visitors from both Trainers and Pokémon. The live event marks a celebration with festive balloons as the Spring season commences in the real world and in-game.

Finneon, the Water-type Pokémon, will be featured during the live event alongside Flying Pikachu, Snorlax, and Pachirisu, but will there be a Shiny Finneon? This guide details if Shiny Finneon will be appearing and when the encounter will occur in Pokémon GO.

Is There A Shiny Finneon In Pokémon GO?

Ahead of the Safari Zone: Taipei live event for Pokémon GO, Trainers will know that the Water-type Pokémon, Finneon, will be one of many featured for the event. Likewise, they should be excited to know that there is a chance that a Shiny Finneon may spawn in the wild for the event’s duration.

Finneon’s Shiny form will appear alongside other featured Pokémon with their Shiny forms, including Unown E, P, and T, Munna, and Pikachu wearing a green Berry T-Shirt. Trainers should look out for the Shiny Finneon within the event space during the Safari Zone: Taipei live event.

Notably, encountering the Water-type Pokémon will be exclusive to ticket holders attending the live event. Finneon and its Shiny form will appear in the wild more frequently from 21st to 23rd October 2022 between 9 am and 6 pm local time.

Finneon will be featured throughout the event, with a chance of its Shiny counterpart appearing if Trainers are lucky enough to encounter it.

At the time of writing, we’re unsure if more gameplay activities will be added to the event. For example, we don’t know if there are Raids planned that Finneon could potentially appear in.

Still, there will likely be event-exclusive Field Research and Special Research Tasks arriving for the Safari Zone: Taipei live event. Participating in these Research tasks and challenges will award Trainers various rewards.

Nevertheless, we await more details regarding the upcoming Pokémon GO Safari Zone: Taipei live event, including gameplay details from developer Niantic. As such, we will endeavor to provide more updates once more reliable information is available.
