Pokemon GO: How to Catch Wimpod / Golisopod & Is There a Shiny?

Two new Pokemon are coming to Pokemon GO – here’s how to catch Wimpod & Golisopod!

While Pokemon GO only originally launched with Generation 1, the popular mobile game has since grown tremendously. Over the years, developer Niantic added more and more Pokemon to the title’s roster, and now ‘mons from 8 different generations to catch.

When it comes to Pokemon from the Alola region, Pokemon GO is receiving new updates all the time. And, as part of a new Pokemon TCG crossover event, two new Pokemon are joining the roster.

It’s nice to see some good news after Pokemon GO fans labeled GO Fest as ‘the biggest letdown of the year’. But why were fans so disappointed?

And don’t miss the amazing Pokemon GO Raid Battle schedule for June 2022. Mewtwo is back, and it’s not the only popular Pokemon resurfacing!

How to Catch Wimpod & Golisopod in Pokemon GO

As part of the Pokemon TCG x Pokemon GO crossover event, players can catch Wimpod and Golisopod from June 16 – June 30.

The event starts at 10 AM local time on June 16 and ends at 8 PM on June 30. However, the Pokemon will likely be in the game as a permanent spawn from June 16 onward.

You’ll be able to catch both Pokemon in the wild, but Wimpod is also one of the event’s new Field Research task encounters. Be sure to complete a lot of Field Research, as you’ll need 400 Candies to evolve it into the powerful Golisopod!

Golisopod is a powerful Water/Bug-Type Pokemon that’s weak against Flying, Rock, and Electric attacks. However, it’s resistant to Fighting, Ground, Steel, Water, and Ice!

Could it join our best Pokemon GO team rankings very soon? We’ll have to wait and see.

Is There a Shiny Wimpod & Golisopod in Pokemon GO?

No, there is currently no Shiny form for Wimpod and Golisopod in Pokemon GO. Therefore, just look for the best non-shiny Wimpod possible before evolving!

But these aren’t the only new Pokemon joining the game’s roster this month. Here’s how to catch Tyrunt and Amaura, two new fossil Pokemon!

Plus, this month’s final Spotlight Hour has a surprise new Pokemon of its own!
