The Legendary Pokemon Cosmog has two different final evolutions – Solgaleo and Lunala – but which one should you choose in Pokemon GO?

Players can evolve Cosmog’s mid-stage evolution Cosmoem into one of Solgaleo or Lunala, but it isn’t an easy choice.

The only way to get Solgaleo and Lunala in Pokemon GO is by evolving Cosmog, and Cosmog itself is extremely rare. In fact, you can only get a maximum of three Cosmog ever!

This means you’ll definitely want to make the right choice when it comes to evolving Cosmoem.

Is Solgaleo or Lunala Better in Pokemon GO?

Solgaleo is slightly better than Lunala in Pokemon GO. While they have identical stats, Solgaleo is a Psychic/Steel-type and has more powerful attacks for the GO Battle League, making it the more useful Pokemon overall.

However, if you don’t fight in the GO Battle League much, choose whichever evolution you prefer the look of out of Solgaleo and Lunala.

Just make sure you know how to evolve Cosmoem into Solgaleo and Lunala first. The method for doing this is slightly different depending on which evolution you want.

Solgaleo vs. Lunala Stats Comparison in Pokemon GO

Solgaleo and Lunala have the exact same attack, defense, stamina, and maximum CP. This makes it very hard to decide between them when evolving Cosmoem in Pokemon GO.

The only difference is that Solgaleo is a Psychic/Steel-type while Lunala is a Psychic/Ghost-type. This also means they can learn different attacks.

Can You Get Both Solgaleo & Lunala in Pokemon GO?

As of June 16, 2023, it is now possible to get a second Cosmog in Pokemon GO through the Starry Skies Special Research in the Season of Hidden Gems.

This means you can finally get both Solgaleo and Lunala in Pokemon GO!

This is great news for Pokemon GO players who have been waiting patiently to add both to their Pokedex. After all, it had been over six months where players could only get one of Solgaleo or Lunala!
