How do I get Sky Forme Shaymin in Pokémon Go?

It’s not currently possible to encounter Sky Forme Shaymin in Pokémon Go, as the Pokémon is a mythical legendary, so it doesn’t spawn naturally. So far, Sky Forme Shaymin’s only distribution is as part of Pokémon Go Fest 2022, where players could purchase a research ticket and encounter Sky Forme Shaymin after completing special research tasks. We will update this guide when Sky Forme Shaymin becomes available again in the future.

Can Shaymin swap forms in Pokémon Go?

It’s only possible for Sky Forme Shaymin to change forms in Pokémon Go at the moment, though it can do so repeatedly, provided you have enough candy. If you have encountered Land Forme Shaymin, it can only stay in that form. However, if you own a Sky Forme Shaymin from Pokémon Go Fest, you can change forms by following these steps:

  • Open up Pokémon Go
  • Under Pokémon, search Shaymin
  • Underneath the power up button is ‘change form’
  • If you have 25 Shaymin candy and 10,000 stardust, click on change form
  • You can now change your Sky Forme Shaymin to Land Forme and back again

That’s it for our Pokémon Go Shaymin guide for now. We hope you snag the adorable mythical soon. If you do grab the little green hedgehog, be sure to check out our guides explaining the grass Pokémon weakness and flying Pokémon weakness next.
