Shiny Pokémon are some of the most coveted targets in Pokémon Go. Capturing these Pokémon is a challenge that takes a lot of time and a lot of luck. Not all Pokémon have a Shiny version, but Heatran has. In this guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Shiny Heatran.
How to Get Shiny Heatran in Pokemon Go
Heatran is a legendary steel and fire-type Pokémon. Many players want to get it, but it is not easy at all. And getting the Shiny version is even more difficult.
Each Shiny Pokémon has its own Shiny Rate, which means how many encounters you need to get a Shiny. For Heatran, the Shiny Rate is 1:20. In other words, your 20th encounter will be with Shiny Heatran. Unfortunately, there is no way to increase the Shiny Rate in the game. The only way to make the process of hunting Shiny Pokémon easier is to either hunt in the nests or wait for special events when the frequency of a certain type of Pokémon is increased.
Now such an event is taking place called the Season of Heritage’s Mountains of Power Event 2022. It began on January 7 and will last until January 15. During this event, the spawn rate of Steel and Fire Type Pokémon has been increased. Just what you need to catch Shiny Heatran.
All you need to do is participate in 5-star raids until you meet Shiny Heatran. Therefore, accumulate as many raids pass as possible and gather a team of up to 10 people to finish the raids as quickly as possible.
