The World of Wonders season is in full swing in Pokemon Go, giving all players the chance to get Poipole, one of the most popular Ultra Beasts and part of Ash Ketchum’s Pokemon team in the Alola region.

Here’s how to get Poipole and its evolution, Naganadel, in Pokemon Go, as well as its shiny availability in the mobile game.

How to get Poipole in Pokemon Go

You can get the Poison-type Ultra Beast Poipole in Pokemon Go by completing stage 1 of the World of Wonders Special Research.

Here are the tasks you’ll need to complete to encounter Poipole:

World of Wonders Special Research stage 1/5

  • Catch 20 Pokemon – 10x Poke Ball
  • Spin 10 PokeStops – 10x Pinap Berry
  • Transfer 10 Pokemon – 7x Razz Berry

You’ll be rewarded with a Poipole encounter and 803 XP for completing the first stage of this Special Research. You check our full guide to know all the tasks of the World of Wonders Special Research.

Pokemon Go players can get the Special Research by logging into the game before the season ends on June 1, 2024 at 10 AM (local time).

How to evolve Poipole into Naganadel in Pokemon Go

Poipole could evolve into Naganadel with 200 Candy in Pokemon Go, according to sites like the Pokemon Go Wiki, but its evolution is not available in the game just yet.

The World of Wonders Special Research rewards players with 125 Candy when they complete stages 1 through 4. So, it’s safe to assume that completing all 5 stages will net you all the Candy you need to evolve the Poison Pin Pokemon.

Stay tuned for details about Naganadel’s availability once all steps on the World of Wonders Special Research go live.

Can Poipole be shiny in Pokemon Go?

No, shiny Poipole is not available in Pokemon Go yet.

The shiny versions of most Ultra Beasts in Pokemon Go are finally debuting in Pokemon Go Fest 2024, years after their original debuts. So, we expect players will have to wait a bit to get the shiny Ultra Beast in the game.

And that is everything you need to know to catch Poipole in the mobile game. For more Pokemon Go content and guides, be sure to check out the following:
