Mareanie makes his Pokemon Go debut! If you’re wondering how to catch it, if it can be Shiny, or how to evolve it into Toxapex, we’ve got all the answers you need.
Fashion Week has returned to Pokemon Go for September 2022. In addition to the usual Costume Pokemon and Timed Research tasks, players can now catch the Poison/Water-type Pokemon Mareanie.
Mareanie first appeared in the Alola region of Pokémon Sun & Moon on Nintendo 3DS. It’s known as the Brutal Star Pokemon in the Pokedex, and it evolves into Toxapex once you’ve collected enough candy.
Now that it’s finally made its debut in Pokemon Go, we’ve got all the details you need on how to catch Mareanie, as well as details on his Shiny availability.
How to get Mareanie in Pokemon Go
There are a few ways to encounter Mareanie during Fashion Week in Pokémon Go:
- As a wild encounter.
- As a 3-star raid boss in a gym.
- As a reward for completing field research tasks.
You can use incense sticks or bait modules to increase your chances of encountering a Mareanie in the wild, although you’re not guaranteed to find one that way. Using the nearby feature can be helpful as it will show a variety of Pokemon that are near your location.
If you’re looking for a surefire way to find a Mareanie, try fighting one as a raid boss. It’s a Poison/Water-type Pokemon, meaning it’s weak to Electric, Ground, and Psychic-type attacks. Once you defeat it, you have a chance to catch it.
The last way to encounter a Mareanie in Pokemon Go is to complete the field research tasks “Make 5 great throws” or “Make 3 great curveball throws in a row”. You can get these Field Research tasks randomly by spinning PokeStops during Fashion Week.
How to evolve Mareanie into Toxapex in Pokemon Go
Mareanie can evolve into Toxapex with the help of 50 sweets. No special items or buddy tasks are required for this evolution, making it a relatively easy (and cheap) evolution process.
If you’re having trouble earning enough Candy, remember to use Pinap Berries when catching Mareanie in the wild. You can also set Mareanie as your buddy to get extra candies when you go exploring.
Can Mareanie be shiny in Pokemon Go?
This is the bad news Shiny Mareanie is currently unavailable in Pokemon Go, which means Shiny Toxapex is also unavailable.
It’s very unusual for Niantic to debut a new Pokemon alongside its Shiny variant, so you’ll just have to keep an eye out for it at future events.
