Magmar is one of the many Pokémon you can encounter in Pokémon Go. You can generally find this Pokémon in the wild, but it often has a better chance of spawning during specific events that occur in the mobile game. During these specific events or in the wild, do you have the opportunity to encounter a bright Magmar? Unfortunately, not all the bright versions are in Pokémon Go. Here's what we know about the glossy Magmar.
We can confirm that you have the ability to catch a bright Magmar almost every time you encounter this Pokémon in Pokémon Go. Magmar is one of the 150 original Pokémon in the series. In February 2021, there was the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event, which unlocked all of the original Shiny Pokémon forms from the Kanto region, ensuring that Magmar was always available for the life of the game. If you find a Magmar in the wild or receive one as a reward, there is a chance you may receive a brilliant version.
For Magmar's Community Day on December 14, the Pokémon has an increased spawn frequency from 18pm to 00pm in your local time zone. However, that doesn't mean the Pokémon has a greater chance of being lucid. You simply have a better chance of finding a bright Magmar during this short window. If you are looking for one, this is a good opportunity to try adding one to your collection.
