Raids During Greedy Gluttons In Pokemon GO

For players looking to flex their combat skills, taking on monsters in Raids is one of the easiest ways to make this happen. As long as you have the proper team ready to go, gamers will have a great chance to unlock and capture some beastly Pokemon. While working around town, make sure to spin and check Gyms for these monsters inside:

1-Star Raids

  • Mankey
  • Swinub
  • Spoink
  • Tepig

3-Star Raids

  • Snorlax

Shiny Pokemon Debut During Greedy Gluttons

For the first time, players will be able to get Shiny Munchlax as a Pokemon. This shiny will also transfer over to Snorlax when evolved, giving gamers a chance to have a new form of their favorite Pokemon. While it may not be immediately noticeable, a subtle color change can be more than enough for some gamers, but it won’t make its way onto our best shiny Pokemon list anytime soon.

If this is the first time you’ve encountered a Shiny Pokemon, you’ll want to keep an eye on the beginning of the encounter. Players will see a flash of stars available, alongside an icon next to their name showcasing that they are Shiny.

Making sure that you’re prepared is one of the hardest parts of these special events, so finding plenty of Pokeballs before hunting for these monsters gives players a chance to capture plenty of them. Having the best accessories around before jumping in can help, especially if you’ve got the storage space to handle all these new creatures.

Pokemon GO is available now on Mobile Devices.
