Wimpod is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and makes its debut as a part of the Pokémon Go & Pokémon Go Crossover event running from Thursday, June 16, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time till Thursday, June 30, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

Being a Bug and Water type, it is weak to the Electric, Flying and Rock types.

Wimpod evolves into the very popular Golisopod, the signature Pokémon of Guzma from the main series games and the anime. It should be noted that Wimpod would need 400 candies to evolve into Golisopod. 

Wimpod can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 255 – 286 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 319 – 358 CP at Level 25 with Rainy weather boost

It is an easy solo.
