Pokemon Go The Crown Tundra Event: Galarian Ponyta, Sirfetch'd, and More
Here's your chance to catch an adorable Galarian Ponyta!
To celebrate the launch of The Crown Tundra expansion for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, trainers now have the chance to capture Galarian Farfetch’d and Galarian Ponyta in Pokemon Go.
Specifically, from now until October 23 at 6 p.m. PT, Galarian Farfetch’d will appear in the wild, while Galarian Ponyta will appear in Raids.
While Galarian Farfetch’d was previously available in Pokemon Go following the release of The Isle of Armor expansion for Sword and Shield, for this second release, it can finally be evolved into Sirfetch’d. (Galarian Ponyta can also be evolved into Galarian Rapidash.)
As reported by users on The Silph Road subreddit, to evolve Galarian Farfetch’d into Sirfetch’d, you’ll need to make 10 Excellent Throws while Galarian Farfetch’d is your Buddy Pokemon.
You can track how many Excellent Throws you’ve made by going to the page for your Buddy Galarian Farfetch’d and tapping “Adventure together to evolve” under the Evolve button. This will bring up a counter showing how many Excellent Throws you’ve achieved.
While Galarian Farfetch’d and Galarian Ponyta will only be around in the wild and in Raids (respectively) for a very limited amount of time, both will have the chance to hatch from 7 km Eggs after this event ends. And, both will retain their abilities to be evolved.
Finally, as part of this event, free avatar clothing items have been added to the game’s Style menu, which allow you to dress up your Pokemon Go avatar in the same outfit worn by characters in The Crown Tundra expansion.
