Greedy Gluttons Event Raids

In one-star raids, you’ll have the chance to encounter:

  • Mankey
  • Swinub
  • Spoink
  • Tepig

All one-star raid Pokémon will have a higher chance of appearing as shiny.

In three-star raids, you’ll have the chance to encounter:

  • Snorlax
  • Mawile
  • Swalot
  • Sharpedo

Only Snorlax and Mawile will spawn with higher shiny chances.

For the Mega Raid, you’ll encounter Mega Gyarados, who also has the chance to spawn as shiny!

But the big boy All-Star of the event is indisputably the Ultra Beast Guzzlord, who, for the first time in Pokémon GO history, has emerged from Ultra Wormholes to terrorize trainers all over the world.

Guzzlord, the Junkivore Pokémon, is a Dark Dragon type that debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon in the Alola Region. But now you’ll have a chance to face him in five-star raids from Tuesday, November 8 to Wednesday, November 23.

Greedy Gluttons Event Eggs and Bonuses in Pokemon GO

But the event doesn’t stop there! If you find a 7 km egg, you’ll be able to hatch:

  • Cherubi
  • Gible
  • Munchlax

All three have higher chances of being shiny, and this is the first time trainers will be able to encounter a shiny Munchlax!

To speed up the process, there will be ½ hatch distance for the first three eggs hatched during the event using the Pokémon GO Egg Hatching widget. This widget is available on iOS and Android devices.

And if you complete Field Research tasks during this time, you’ll be able to encounter:

  • Exeggcute
  • Cherubi
  • Swirlix

All of which have a chance to be shiny!
