Marshadow

This year, the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow—the Gloomdweller Pokémon—is the star of the event! Marshadow will make its Pokémon GO debut during the GO Fest 2024 event in Sendai City. Follow the story told by your event-exclusive Special Research and adventure throughout the park, and get ready for your own mysterious encounter with Marshadow! Not all that hides in the dark is Marshadow, though—Trainers will also be able to encounter Klefki!

Trainers will only encounter Marshadow once no matter how many GO Fest 2024 Special Research stories they acquire and complete. If you plan to attend multiple in-person GO Fest 2024 events, the first relevant Special Research story you obtain will award your Marshadow encounter.

Any subsequent GO Fest Special Research you obtain and complete will award you with Marshadow Candy instead of a Marshadow encounter once it is completed.
