WHERE CAN YOU FIND TAPU KOKO SHINY IN POKEMON GO?
Trainers want to know the chances of catching a shiny Tapu Koko as time runs out to confront him in five-star Raids.
Niantic released one of the most comprehensive Pokemon Go updates of the year this week, adding new Gen 7 Pocket Monsters to catch. This is all part of the Season of Alola, which will last for the next three months and will feature a plethora of uncommon Pokemon to catch and battle.
Here’s everything we know so far about what’s coming up in the future, as well as which shiny Pokemon are now available to catch.
IS TAPU KOKO SHINY IN POKEMON GO?
Niantic announced earlier this week that for a limited time, the Legendary Alolan Pokemon would be accessible to battle and catch. While the Season of Alola is set to run until early June 2022, that doesn’t guarantee that all of the top rewards will be available during that time. The current Tapu Koko five-star Raid will expire on March 15, 2022, according to the official Pokemon Go statement.
Trainers have less than two weeks to locate and combat the Electric Fairy type before it is replaced. There’s also a lot of speculation about which variations will be accessible to capture during Niantic’s limited time. There have been no reports of shining Tapu Koko Pokemon being caught, which is sad for collectors.
There is no way to catch a shiny Tapu Koko during this period of the Season of Alola. The good news is that there’s a chance that shiny variations will be added to the game in the future, but Trainers will have to wait and see when that happens. In the past, Niantic has released surprise upgrades for specific Pokemon, but these have been rare.
Is Tapu Koko a good Pokémon?
Tapu Koko could be quite beneficial in Raid Battles, thanks to its high maximum CP and a long list of Pokémon that are vulnerable to its attacks, while its absence of a Fairy-type Fast Attack should be considered when facing Dragon-type Pokémon.
Best moves for Tapu Koko
Volt Switch is the best of Tapu Koko’s various Fast Attacks, but when it comes to Charged Attacks, you have a few options. If you want to take advantage of Tapu Koko’s electric typing, Thunderbolt is a fine choice, or you may teach it the Fairy-type attack Dazzling Gleam to give it an advantage over dragon Pokemon.
Tapu Koko will be replaced by the returning Therian Forme Tornadus in raids on March 15th. Our Pokemon Go March events roundup has a list of everything else going on this month.
