Spawn Spotlights

  • Pokemon Type: Normal
  • Boosted Weather: Partly Cloudy
  • Available From: Wild, Eggs
  • Shiny Available: Yes
  • Useful In: Raids, GBL (Umbreon in the Great League), Limited PvP (Silph Cups)

Eevee can be an amazing role filler for new and returning players alike. All forms except Umbreon are good for Raiding, with Espeon, Glaceon, and Leafeon being the biggest standouts.

And Umbreon has a home too. In the Great League, Umbreon can be very powerful! Just make sure you evolve it in December so it has the exclusive Last Resort. Vaporeon and others have also found a home in a few Silph Cups (also requiring Last Resort).

  • Pokemon Type: Bug, Electric
  • Boosted Weather: Rainy
  • Available From:  Wild, Eggs
  • Shiny Available: No
  • Useful In: GBL (Great)

Galvantula can quickly charge up and dish out a variety of different Charge Moves, making this Bug-type an unpredictable and scary threat against the Great League at large.

  • Pokemon Type: Normal
  • Boosted Weather: Partly Cloudy
  • Available From:  Wild
  • Shiny Available: Yes
  • Useful In: Gym Defense

If you’ve seen a gym, you’ve probably seen a Chansey or it’s evolved form, Blissey. Both pink spheres of HP are excellent at wasting the time of oncoming Gym attackers.

Other Spawns

Reunited at last, these two can both now be found in all regions, with shinies introduced to celebrate.

Though pretty, Milotic isn't incredibly useful. Still, some players might use this event to round up Feebas candy to complete the Special Research "A Thousand Year Slumber" which requires evolving a Feebas.
