So what does this mean for Shiny Shieldon and Cranidos? According to The Silph Road's findings, a "medium event" like Ultra Unlock Part 1 will increase PokĂ©mon Spotlight's Shiny rate to 1 in 125. Upon completion of the event, the rate will return to 1 in 500 for Shieldon and Cranidos , then this will be the best time to find the two rare Pokemon.  

Fortunately, Niantic is making Shieldon and Cranidos available to capture in a variety of ways… 

1. Find them in nature

Cranidos and Shieldon will appear more often in the wild alongside other fossils and man-made Pokemon like Omanyte, Kabuto, Porygon, Baltoy, and more. 

Trainers will see Cranidos and Shieldon appear in the game's overworld by simply launching PokĂ©mon GO. When one is found, just tap the Pokemon and see if it's a Shiny. 

Trainers can increase the number of PokĂ©mon they encounter by using an incense to lure Cranidos and Shieldon, among others, to them.
