How to get Wimpod in Pokémon Go

Wimpod first appeared in Pokémon Go during the Pokémon TCG Crossover event on Thursday, June 16, 2022.

Throughout this event, you will be able to obtain Wimpod through a variety of means:

  • In the Wild: Appears most frequently during the Pokémon TCG crossover event.
  • Pokémon TCG Cross-Field Research Task: Spin 5 PokéStops or Gyms
  • One-Star Raids: During the Pokémon TCG Crossover Event

As you can see from the methods listed above, the easiest way to catch a Wimpod is to find it in the wild or defeat it in a one-star raid, because you will be able to easily defeat it yourself. You’ll find tips on Wimpod weaknesses and counterattacks later in this guide.

If you want to catch Wimpod through his Pokémon TCG Crossover Field Research task, it’s important to remember that the tasks assigned by PokéStops change from day to day. Because of this, you may find it quite difficult to find this specific task, because you may receive field research tasks from the monthly group along with the event-exclusive tasks.

If you want to use this method, we recommend finding a Pokémon Go group in your local area, as someone may have already found the PokéStop you’re looking for.

As of this writing, we don’t know what Wimpod’s spawn rate will be once the Pokémon TCG Crossover event ends. However, there is a chance that, like other recently released Pokémon, it will be difficult to find.

How to evolve Wimpod into Golisopod in Pokémon Go

To evolve Wimpod into Golisopod in Pokémon Go, you must collect 400 Wimpod Candy.

Wimpod and Golisopod are insect and water type Pokémon. (Image credit:

Yes, here it is: the second Gen 7 Pokémon that requires a huge stack of candy to evolve. The first was Stufful and its evolution, Bewear, which was released for Community Day in April 2022. Whether or not a third Gen 7 Pokémon will receive this treatment remains to be seen, so for now, it’s time to concentrate on capturing many Wimpods.

Lots of Wimpods.

Fortunately, due to the long duration of the Pokémon TCG Crossover event, you have plenty of time to catch these Wimpods. Still, we recommend using Pinap Berries when catching Wimpod to double the amount of candy you receive.

You can also have a Wimpod as your Pokémon companion to collect some extra candy while you explore.

The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! The Out to Play event is currently taking place. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.
