Pokémon Go Fest will be starting at 10 am, in your local time. Pokémon Go Fest 2020 is a global event this year, being done remotely due to the ongoing pandemic. The day will consist of different habitats falling into different times, and you will be able to catch various Pokémon depending on the active habitat at the time.

Even though Pokémon Go Fest 2020 will start at 10 am local time, the habitats are on a fixed rotation.

Because Heatmor is a Fire-type, you will have a chance to catch Shiny Heatmor during the Fire Habitats, which begins at 12 pm and 5 pm ET, and 2 pm and 7 pm PT. Shiny Heatmor will appear in the wild, so make sure you are playing the game during these hours, and trying to catch plenty of Pokémon.

If you really want to take advantage of all the increased spawn rates, and the chance to catch Shiny Heatmor, make sure you also have plenty of incense to attract Pokémon during the Fire Habitat hours.

You will also have a chance to get Shiny Charmander, Shiny Ponyta, Shiny Marowak, Shiny Magmar, Shiny Houndour, and Shiny Torchic during the Fire Habitat.
