Pokémon GO is full of powerful and unique Pokémon to catch, and many are difficult to come by. By far, the rarest and most sought-after Pokémon in the game are the shiny variants. These are extremely difficult to find, and it can be nearly impossible to find a specific shiny Pokémon outside of a Community Day or an event, like the Mythic Blade event. The most desired shiny variants are the ones that have a complete color swap, as Wooper does.

Players who love this little Axolotl will be pleased to know that its shiny variant is available in Pokémon GO. It can be encountered in any way that Wooper is encountered, whether by egg hatch, wild encounter, or Research reward.
How to catch a shiny Wooper in Pokémon GO
Catching a shiny Wooper is no east feat. The easiest way at the moment is to find a Wooper in the wild. This is also the most tedious way to encounter a shiny. At the time of writing, there hasn’t been a Wooper Community Day, and there likely won’t be in the future, and Wooper has not been prominently featured in any meaningful way during events or celebrations. Players wanting a shiny Wooper can search for the Pokémon near bodies of water, as that is where Water-type Pokémon are more likely to spawn.
