Here’s an overview of the Diglett family in their normal and form. Although you will most likely NOT find or catch a shiny Alolan Diglett in the wild, we’ve included the sprites that will be shown in your Pokédex as a result of catching a shiny Kanto Diglett:
|Normal version||Shiny version|
Below are some Ground – type Pokémon you may see spawning more frequently in the wild per the event. Note: this is not a full, or confirmed list, only some possibilities that may interest most.
|Trapinch||In addition to these listed, those with an Alolan form, and possibly the inclusion of Evolved forms, may also be found.|
Groudon in Raids/Raid Boss Shakeup
With this event, we will begin seeing Groudon showing up in raids as a Tier 5 raid boss. We can only assume, since it’s last release included the chance at it’s shiny variant, that we will see much of the same this go around. Here is a link to our Groudon Raid Guide to help you prepare, a list of current Raid Bosses, as well as our ever helpful infographic by Couple of Gaming:
Lest us not forget the additional bonuses which include the following for Pokémon appearing as part of this event ONLY:
- 2x Catch Stardust (because you can NEVER have enough)
- 2x Catch Candy
This event only lasts 3 DAYS so be sure to make the most of it while you can! Focusing on all aspects of the event may not be in the cards for everyone but perhaps you can take a little time each day to focus on what works best for you!
Whether it’s the Stardust/Candy grind, the shiny hunt, or adding some additional entries in your Pokédex, this short event will give you those options!
