Pokémon Go runs very strong, even after almost 8 years on the market. The mobile phenomenon has a very strong and faithful community. With several events every month and new raids to catch the more strong and rare Pokémon, players have a lot to do in Pokémon Go; you can also get shiny in a more easy way.

One very lucky player caught a one-in-a-million Pokémon. The shiny are a very common search for players; they will appear very often in the game and in different events for a limited time. 

Pokémon Go and the rarest shiny of them all

Players of Pokémon Go have many names for the different types of catches that they do, and Hundo is a very rare shiny Pokémon. This means that the Pokémon has perfect stats in the game. There are countless variations of these; not always the perfect stats mean the rarest Pokémon. But this catch in particular is probably the rarest in all the games up to date. The star of this incredible catch is the very beloved Pokémon, Bidoof.

Thanks to a Reddit post by user Alextricity, the Pokémon Go community was taken by surprise. This user shows its shiny Bidoof with the trainer rate in triple 0, which means 0 Attack, 0 Defense, O HP, and 0 Stars. According to another user who replied, this is called a ‘nundo’ or Zero IV. Other players just said things like, “You just won the game.” This was very impressive to almost all the users that replied to this post. They never saw anything like this. 

An incredible achievement

As always, the community began to make accurate numbers for this spectacular Bidoof catch, and they ended up with a huge number. This catch is approximately one in 2,097,152. This number is almost impossible to get with any other catch, shiny or not.

So this is a once-in-a-lifetime catch for any trainer; it cannot even be accomplished in egg-hatches. Not even the most veteran players could get this kind of shiny or something close to this rarity in numbers. So this could be a record for this Pokémon Go player.

Pokémon Go continues to cultivate a very good community with events and new competitions for its players all over the world. The game already added a lot of the existing Pokémon, so you can be a complete trainer.

The ecosystem built by The Pokémon Company rewards the player who plays Pokémon on any device possible. You can transfer your Pokémon to other games in the franchise and see your Pokémon Go captures in the main games. 

Tell us what you think about this marvelous capture. Did you play Pokémon Go?

I'm a big fan of movies and videogames in general. I really love Pokémon and Godzilla. One of my favorite games is The Last of Us, Part II. A compelling and well-written story is always welcome.
