Mass Outbreaks have greatly increased Shiny Odds, and are actually about twice as high as the rate for Massive Mass Outbreaks. Shiny farming through Mass Outbreaks is useful for when you want to farm for a specific Shiny Pokemon.
|Conditions||Effect on Shiny Rate|
Have a Pokemon Entry reach Research Level 10
|1x the Shiny Rate for that Pokemon|
|Complete all of a Pokemon's Research Tasks||2x the Shiny Rate for that Pokemon|
|Having the Shiny Charm||3x the Shiny Rate for all Pokemon|
|Encountered during a Mass Outbreak||26x the standard Shiny Rate for that Pokemon|
|Encountered during a Massive Outbreak||13x the standard Shiny Rate for that Pokemon|
The optimal rates for Shiny Pokemon require the Shiny Charm and all research tasks for that Pokemon completed for a Perfect page, and encounter the Pokemon through as Mass Outbreak.
While Mass Outbreaks have a higher shiny rate than Massive Mass Outbreaks, Massive Mass Outbreaks are generally more reliable for hunting shiny Pokemon.
Special Mass Outbreaks will cause a Mass Outbreak to spawn right after clearing the Mass Outbreak before it. The second spawn will also be the previous Pokemon's evolution at a higher level, and also has a chance to spawn as an outbreak of Alpha Pokemon.
The possibility of a second mass outbreak spawn in the same location makes shiny hunting more efficient, and it also makes hunting for Shiny Alpha Pokemon easier compared to waiting for them to spawn in their static encounters.
We're still working on the full list of Mass Outbreak Pokemon. Check back again for more updates! Let us know what Mass Outbreaks you've found in the comments!
|Mime Jr.||Mr. Mime||Magikarp|
|Abomasnow||Hisuian Zorua||Hisuian Zoroark|
Pokemon that only spawn in Space-Time Distortions will also not appear as Mass Outbreaks, and can only be obtained when the domes form.
|Pokemon that Do Not Appear in Mass Outbreaks|
|Basculegion||Alolan Vulpix||Alolan Ninetales||Ninetales|
Mass Outbreaks spawn tons of Pokemon within a specific area. They can happen anytime and anywhere on the map. However, only a certain Pokemon will come out on the outbreak.
Sometimes, even Alpha Pokemon show up in these Mass Outbreaks!
You'll have a higher chance of encountering a Shiny Pokemon in the Mass Outbreak, as only one kind of Pokemon will appear. Use this chance to add more Shiny Pokemon to your collection!
How to Get Shiny Pokemon and Shiny Odds
Chances for a Mass Outbreak occur each time you return to Jubilife Village. By going to a map, and returning to Jubilife Village, there is a chance you can trigger a Mass Outbreak in one of the areas.
The Pokemon that appear in the Mass Outbreak are random, but you can keep going back and forth until you get a Mass Outbreak of a Pokemon you want to look for.
Keep in mind that if a Mass Outbreak is already happening on the area you are moving to, there is a chance that area's Mass Outbreak won't change. It will be best to move between areas that don't currently have Mass Outbreaks.
The Arc Phone will show you where a Mass Outbreak is on the map. It will also show what Pokemon is on the outbreak. It will be helpful to you, especially if you're looking for a specific Pokemon and a shiny version of it!
Massive Mass Outbreaks are simultaneous outbreaks that happen across the map. This is a new event brought about by the Daybreak Patch from Update 1.1.0!
