Pokémon Go is hosting an Azurill Hatch Day event on Sept. 30 from 2-5 p.m. in your local time.

During the event, you’ll get doubled Stardust and candy from hatching eggs. Azurill will also hatch more frequently from 2 km eggs obtained during the event period. Those hunting for a shiny Azurill will want to take part of this event and get hatching.

How to get Shiny Azurill, Marill, and Azumarill

If you’re hunting for a shiny, your best bet is to hatch as many eggs as possible. You’ll want to find a nice place where you can walk and spin a ton of PokéStops. You’ll get eggs for spinning stops, so you’ll want to have a good supply of stops to replenish your eggs.

Azurill does have an increased shiny chance to hatch from eggs and they’ll hatch from meager 2 km eggs, meaning you should be able to hatch a ton of eggs if you just keep walking.

Once you hopefully nab your Azurill, you can evolve it using Marill Candy to get the other shinies.
