The 2023 Pokemon GO Festival of Colors event has plenty of bright and bold Pokemon for players to catch in the wild.

From March 8 to March 14, 2023, the following Pokemon will be spawning more often:

  • Bruxish
  • Burmy (Plant)
  • Burmy (Sand)
  • Burmy (Trash)
  • Galarian Zigzagoon
  • Koffing
  • Krabby
  • Lickitung
  • Natu
  • Paras
  • Shuckle
  • Stunky
  • Wingull
  • Wobbuffet

Of course, the highlight of this wild spawn offering is the brand-new Pokemon Bruxish. However, the Festival of Colors is also adding a new Mega Pokemon to the game!

In addition to the Pokemon you can find in the wild, there is also a brand-new selection of Raid bosses in the Pokemon GO 2023 Festival of Colors. This includes a host of brightly colored Pokemon as well as the return of a classic Legendary Pokemon!

Refer to the table below to see which of the Pokemon you can find in the wild can be shiny, as well as the rarity of encountering one!

Even if you can catch the shiny versions of most of the Pokemon, you’ll get very lucky to even encounter one shiny during the event. This is because the exact odds of finding shinies in Pokemon GO are extremely low!
