Pokemon Go was amongst the highest-earning augmented reality games of all time. This game was developed by Niantic and is one of the most played games all over the globe.  Pokemon Go uses mobile GPS to locate, capture, battle, and train virtual Pokémon that appear to be in the real world. 

There are a lot of popular Pokemon added in Pokemon Go, and veteran Pokemon fans love to catch and train the nostalgic Generation I Pokemon. One of the most adored Generation I Pokemon added into Pokemon GO is Horsea.

Pokémon Go’s Horsea is a Water-type Pokemon with a max CP of 1194, 129 Attack, 103 Defense, and 102 Stamina in Pokemon Go. Horsea is vulnerable to Electric and Grass-type moves. Horsea is boosted by the Rain weather. Horsea’s best moves are Water Gun and Bubble Beam (7.66 DPS).

Can Horsea be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Horsea has been existing in Pokemon Go for quite a few years at this point, but its shiny variant was not available until somewhat recently. It was during the 2019 Annual Pokemon Go Fest Event when the shiny variant of Horsea was released. For the duration of the event back in 2019, the odds of encountering a shiny Horsea were increased.

The good news is that Shiny Horsea has since then remained in the game, which means that you can definitely encounter it in the wild, during raids, in research quests, and so on. Of course, the increased shiny rates have since then disappeared, so shiny hunting for a Horsea will be quite the grind-fest, unless you are extremely lucky!
