As part of Pokémon Go’s Fashion Week, we’ll be seeing a new face joining our Pokedexes. Blitzle, the electric zebra Pokémon will be featured during the Fashion Week. Thus your chances of catching one are a big higher now!

But of course, for many of our shiny hunters out there, you’ll be wanting to know how to get a shiny Blitzle!





How to Catch a Shiny Blitzle

Blitzle is a relatively rare Pokémon to find in Pokémon Go. Its quite elusive and thus trying to get your hands on a shiny one is even harder. In fact, Blitzle doesn’t even have enough data to make an accurate shiny odds prediction. So it’ll likely be the normal 1 in 500 if not even more. So trying to get your hands on a shiny Blitzle is going to be a feat of endurance of extreme luck.

To prepare you for that, we might need to give you a reminder:

  • Shiny Pokémon don’t appear shiny on the map, you need to engage with them to see if they’re shiny.

Something which might be worth considering if you do spot one off in the distance, it’s certainly worth checking! If it’s any consolation, the shiny Blitzle doesn’t look all that different to its normal one. So unless you’re a die-hard shiny hunter/collector, you might be able to get away without having this one!

How to Evolve Blitzle

To evolve your Blitzle into Zebstrika, you’ll only need 50 candies (easier said than done!). At least there’s no additional requirements to get your hands on this little guy with surprising horse-power! Although there’s a lot of work to get yourself a Zebstrika, it’s still a very powerful Pokemon to have. Only vulnerable to ground and effective against flying, steel and electric. This horse can pack a punch.
