Summer time Shaymin
The first ever Summer Time Shaymin event was held back in 2013 - The legendary Pokémon Shaymin visited Emera Town for the whole summer and generously gave out presents to trainers. The event was then repeated in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and Shaymin came back with even more limited gifts.
Shaymin is a annual event usually held for the whole month of august.
In order to meet and obtain Shaymin, users had to interact. There is no set interaction requirement - it will appear randomly after doing interactions. For some users this will take a few hundred or thousand although the number of interactions can be much more than that. When Shaymin wants to meet you, a small icon (a Shaymin sprite) pops up in your Userbar:
It is not possible to have multiple Shaymin in your User bar at the same time. You have to accept Shaymin's gift in order to meet it again, meaning it will stay on your Userbar until you accept one of it's three gifts.
Shaymin's giftsShaymin into it's Sky Form, a Shaymin egg, and a Shaymin Plushie. Users can only pick one of these three gifts each time they encounter Shaymin.
As of 2016, players have a 20% chance to obtain a Shiny Shaymin Plushie upon encountering a Shaymin.
Note: The Shaymin egg will not break your shiny chain, and it is placed directly into your party if you have a free space.
