Can Spritzee be shiny in Pokémon GO?
The pretty-in-pink Perfume Pokémon populates Pokémon GO, but can it be shiny?
Spritzee, a Generation VI Pokémon, wasn’t introduced to the Pokémon franchise until Pokémon X and Y, meaning it was also one of the more recent Pokémon to be added to mobile game Pokémon GO, as well. The adorable pink Perfume Pokémon made its Pokémon GO debut during the Luminous Legends event in 2021, alongside Gen VI Kalos legendary Xerneas. But what about its shiny purple variant? Can shiny Spritzee be encountered in Pokémon GO? We did the research…
Is shiny Spritzee shiny in Pokémon GO?
At the time of writing, shiny Spritzee is still not available in Pokémon GO. Despite being the focus of some in-game events, such as a Spotlight Hour in February 2022, Trainers can still only encounter Spritzee in its original, non-shiny form.
Is shiny Aromatisse in Pokémon GO?
As Spritzee’s evolution, Aromatisee is also not available in Pokémon GO in its shiny form as yet. It’s likely that the two Pokémon will have their shiny color variants added at the same time, and we’ll keep an eye on when that might be! Spritzee has a very specific requirement for evolution into Aromatisse in Pokémon GO, so it might be worth familiarising yourself with that technique in the meantime…
How to evolve Spritzee in Pokémon GO
Spritzee evolves into Aromatisee, the elegant Fragrance Pokémon. In the mainline Pokémon games, there is a special requirement to evolving a Spritzee into Aromatisse, and that is a sachet. Since these items aren’t in Pokémon GO, Niantic has given Spritzee a slightly different evolution requirement in the mobile game.
Like a few other Pokémon GO sprites, such as Galarian Slowpoke, to evolve Spritzee into Aromatisse you’ll need to make it your buddy and meet a specific requirement – in this case, use an Incense. This means you must activate the Incense while the specific Spritzee you’re looking to evolve is currently your buddy Pokémon. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to head back into your Spritzee’s info page and evolve it, provided you also have 50 Spritzee Candies.
