How to Catch Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup, and Combee

After updating the game, you can easily see the Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup in the woods. As they all easy targets, so you play the game normally. Unfortunately, if you struggle to get them, then start the field research task. This task will give you one of them as a reward, but you’ll need to complete the Power up Pokémon task four times.

How to Catch Buizel in Pokemon Go?

As a trainer, you must know that Buizel is a water-type Pokemon, and you can also find it in the wild. You may face some difficulties to get it as it is not common as the ones mentioned above. This time, it will appear in the game in a shinny form. Unluckily if none of the Buizel spawns for you, then you can hatch 5km eggs which you already received in the event. Else you can also complete the Defeat 2 Team GO Rocket Grunts Field Research to get one.

How to Catch Shadow Stunky and Shadow Snover

The one and the only way to get these two Pokemon is to defeat Team GO Rocket Grunts. To find them always keep an eye in the sky. As they can be seen flying in a balloon or black Poké Stops.

Quick Tip:- The best thing about their balloon is that it pop up after every six hours starting at midnight.

 If they say “You’re gonna be frozen in your tracks”, then that means they have Snover in their team. But if they say “Wherever there is light, there is also a shadow”, then they will be having Stunky. Defeat them and capture their Pokemon to finish the first part of the challenge.

How to Catch Cranidos and Shieldon

These two are the hardest to catch, and you must pay special attention as there will be high chances that you may see them in the wild. You’ll be fortunate if you manage to get them in the first attempt. However, if you don’t get a chance to acquire, then don’t lose the hopes. Because you can always choose to complete the 2 Raids Field Research task to win either one of them. Otherwise, you cal also select to hatch 5km eggs, which you received during the Sinnoh Collection Challenge event. Hatching the 5km eggs guarantee you to offer Shieldon. Hence it is only beneficial if you need Shieldon is the one you demand.
