Here are all the details on getting Espurr in Pokemon Go and if its shiny version is available.

How to catch Espurr in Pokemon Go

You can get Espurr in Pokemon Go by defeating it in 1-Star Raid Battles during the Psychic Spectacular 2023 event that runs until September 24, 2023, at 8 PM local time.

Players should note that Espurr is currently raid-locked and trading is the only other way to get it in the game.

Since Espurr is a Psychic-type Pokemon, you can use Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type counters to beat the Raid.
