How do you catch a shiny Seel in Pokémon Go?

Shiny Seel has a chance to appear and can be caught upon any encounter. For now, that means finding the Pokémon in the wild and starting an encounter with it, but should Seel ever be included in an event-themed egg hatch or raid, it is likely that the shiny form would be available there as well.

Seel was recently featured in a Spotlight Hour on May 24, 2022. Spotlight Hours greatly increase the spawn rate of the featured Pokémon, giving players a likelier chance to encounter a shiny variant. While Seel was featured in a Spotlight Hour, it is not impossible that the Pokémon would return to a future Spotlight Hour. So, fans hunting for its shiny form should keep an eye out.
