Trainers, Pokemon Go’s third-anniversary event is now live and players are reporting of seeing Shiny Alolan Pokemon, Shiny Party Hat Pikachu, new Avatar items in the shop, new Jump-Start Research tasks and rewards, Raid bonuses and decreased Stardust for trading.
This is one of the best Pokemon Go events so far, as players can earn up to 405,000 XP, a lot of candies, Lucky Eggs, Stardust and more when completing the Jump-Start Research.
Also, they added Shiny Alolan Pokemon as part of the event, but it seems like they are too hard to find in the wild – only four Shiny Alolan Pokemon are now spawning in the wild.
According to TSR’s analysis, only Shiny Alolan Exeggutor is boosted at the moment, while Rattata and Diglett are not boosted.
TSR posted their analysis/findings on the official TSR Reddit and here are the results based on the current data:
- Exeggutor’s shiny rate is very boosted. Definitely better than 1 in 100.
- Rattata, Diglett, and Geodude are likely not boosted. Combined, their 99% CI goes from 1 in 240 to 1 in 725.
In addition, Shiny Alolan Sandshrew, Shiny Alolan Vulpix, Shiny Alolan Meowth and Shiny Alolan Grimer are now hatching from 7KM Eggs.
We hope to see better numbers in the following days, so stay tuned to find out more!
