Wobbuffet, the Patient Pokemon who has been an anime-favorite Team Rocket member, has been in Pokemon GO since its earlier years. What's more, you can even capture a Shiny Wobbuffet in the game if you're lucky. Here is all you need to know on how to find one. 

How do you get a Shiny Wobbuffet?

The way to get the shiny version is by simply encountering as many as you can throughout the game.

Whilst the games' standard odds of 1 in 500 of encountering a Shiny make the chances quite slim and daunting, it's currently easier to get a Shiny Wobbuffet in thanks to the currently ongoing Pokemon GO Festival of Colors event.

Whilst this doesn't specifically increase the odds of encountering a Shiny version, you'll still have a better likelihood of finding one through increased trial and error. 

What's more, one of the Festival of Colors bonuses is that Lure Modules will now last for 3 hours when activated instead of the standard 30 minutes.

So, by increasing your rate of encounters for an even longer period of time, you should be able to find even more Wobbuffet and hopefully thus a Shiny Wobbuffet.
