Can Gothita shine in Pokémon GO?

Niantic is constantly introducing new Pokémon to Pokémon GO. Gothita, the Psychic-type Pokémon from Generation Five’s Pokémon Black and White, was added to the game for the 2020 Psychic Spectacular event. Although Gothita has been in the game for several years, players unfortunately still can’t find its form brilliant. When Niantic will add Gothita’s Shiny form is a mystery, though it’s likely to happen during an event like a Community Day or Spotlight Hour.

How to catch Gothita in Pokémon GO?

Gothita can be caught in the wild at many different times throughout the year. However, Gothita is highlighted during events, like the upcoming Psychic Spectacular 2022 event, where players can encounter Gothita in the wild. The Pokemon has been featured in most Psychic-type and Spooky-themed events since its inclusion in 2020.


While Gothita will likely appear a lot during the event, which runs from Tuesday, September 6, 2022 through Monday, September 12, 2022, they still won’t be able to encounter a Shiny variant of the Pokemon. Players hoping to get their hands on Shiny Form will likely have to wait for a future event. Gothita is a three-tiered evolution Pokémon, and it’s not extremely unlikely that it could receive its own Community Day in the future.
