Pokemon GO Fest 2021: Can Unown F and G Be Shiny? How to Find and Catch
This year’s very musical Pokemon GO Fest is now starting to kick off around the globe and it’s set to be a banger.

One of these Pokemon is the ultra-elusive Unown, which will be available in both its F and G forms.

Can Unown F and G Be Shiny at This Year’s Pokemon GO Fest?
So, Shiny Unown G was actually released during last year’s GO Fest celebrations alongside Shiny Unown O.
This year, however, Unown O won’t be making an appearance and has been replaced by Unown F. Thankfully, Niantic has confirmed that “Shiny Unown F will be making [its] Pokémon GO debut during the event!”
How can you Nab Yourself One?
As always, there’s no guarantee of ever getting any Shiny Pokemon, however, you’ll never have a better chance than at GO Fest due to increased spawns/odds.
It should be noted, the only way you’re able to encounter Unown at this year’s event is by purchasing a ticket – free players unfortunately won’t have the luxury.
Unown will appear at all four of the habitats during the event – Jungle, Desert Mountain, Ocean Beach and Cave – however, it will only be appearing when you have an incense live.
So in short, to give yourself the best chance of getting a Shiny Unown, you need to:
- Buy a GO Fest Ticket for $5 (or equivalent)
- Use Incense
- Click every single Unown that pops up
