Pokemon Go Spinda is a controversial creature for many trainers, because it’s so difficult to catch and even when you do track it down, there are currently nine different pattern variations to collect at various times of the year – and that doesn’t include the Shinies either! This means that completing your collection of them in Pokemon Go is both time-consuming and relies on a combination of skill plus luck, making the process one that shouldn’t be entered into lightly. However, if your goal is to secure every different pattern of Pokemon Go Spinda to fill out your collection then we can help you with this guide on catching them.

Following a 2019 update the number of circles showing for Spinda in the Pokedex was increased to 20, which naturally lead players to expect more forms would be available to catch. However, that was over three years ago now and no more Spinda forms have been found since, suggesting the additional slots were either added in error or the planned content was never released.
