With the Pokemon Go Weather Week 2024 event in full swing, trainers are looking to catch the shinies of all Castform forms. Finding some of these in the wild is more difficult than others, so players have shared how to get all of them easily.

March 2024 is looking remarkable for Pokemon Go trainers with Raids Days for Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon on the horizon, and a new Team Go Rocket event with more Shadows to catch.

Joining the bandwagon is the Weather Week 2024 extravaganza that marks the debut of shiny Castform and other exciting Pokemon up for grabs. That’s not all, as the event also features a couple of Collection Challenges, which you must be eager to complete ASAP.

The Collection Challenge for Castform requires players to catch all four forms of the species, but it looks like many are struggling to catch ’em all, like Reddit user ‘Consistent-Jicama-94,’ who lives in Australia and is unable to find the snowy form of the Pokemon in question.

The different kinds of Castform spawns are based on weather effects in the game, with the Normal available in partly cloudy, cloudy, and windy; Rainy and Sunny in said weather, and Snowy form in snowy or foggy in-game conditions.

Trainers emphasized: “For what it’s worth, it also appears during foggy weather,” as this condition is more common than snowy weather, no matter where in the world.

Users also revealed: “All forms are available from quests regardless of the weather in your location,” suggesting people spin multiple PokeStops to get the ‘Catch 10 Pokemon with Weather Boost’ task, which rewards an encounter with any of the forms.

With at least one Castform being possible in every weather, players mentioned using Incense and Lure Modules to catch 10 Normal or Sunny forms, leading to easier encounters with the Rainy and Snowy ones as rewards.

Castform (Snowy) appears to be the hardest to find in Pokemon Go, but one fan had a useful bit of info to add. “Use a snowy lure, that’s what I did.”

As you search for every Castform in Pokemon Go, keep a lookout for Routes and PokeStop Showcases along the way.
