The Halloween Mischief Drifblim variation will be appearing in Pokémon Go for a limited time. You’ll be able to catch it during the Halloween Mischief event, from October 15 to 31. You’ll be able to capture it during both parts of the event. What are the chances of catching a shiny version of this costumed Pokémon?

Drifblim’s original version already has a released shiny variation, and the Halloween Mischief Drifblim version will also have a shiny variation. Therefore, you’ll be able to encounter this Pokémon as a three-star raid battle. However, if you’re lucky, there’s a chance you might find it in the wild, or you could receive it as a reward for a Field Research task.

Because you only have a lucky chance to encounter a Halloween Mischief Drifblim in the wild or field research tasks, we recommend focusing on battling it at the raids. You’ll be able to see that you will encounter the Drifblim, giving you a better chance rather than hoping to find it in the wild. The field research tied to encounter a Halloween Mischief Drifblim is the ‘Catch 15 Ghost-type Pokémon.’

Halloween Mischief Driflim will disappear after October 31. It might appear in future events, but you’ll hunt it down before October is over if you want a chance to capture the shiny version.
