To celebrate the Pokemon GO Fest 2019, Niantic Labs has decided to make chromatic Poliwag available in Pokemon GO, allowing coaches to also get shiny versions of Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, and Politoed. In this mini-guide, we explain how to do it.
As you can read in the tweet below, Poliwag chromatic is available in Pokemon GO starting from 03:00 (GMT +2) today 6 August. Below we give you some tips to capture it, explaining how to get the color versions of Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, and Politoed.
How to get Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Poliwrath and chromatic Politoed
The first step, of course, is to capture chromatic Poliwag. To come across the creature, just explore the map until you see it.
If you want to increase your chances of meeting and catching it, it will be important to keep some tips in mind. To begin with, it might be a good idea to use an enhanced bait module to increase the frequency of encounters with wild Pokemon.
Once you are able to meet him, all you have to do is capture him with all the tools at your disposal. Of course, the use of enhanced berries and Pokeballs will help you capture it more easily, as well as perform optimal throws.
After capturing Poliwag chromatic, you can get the shiny versions of its first two standard evolutions Poliwhirl and Poliwrath, and eventually Politoed. To have both chromatic Politoed and Poliwrath, however, you will need at least two chromatic Poliwags, since the latter can only be transformed into one or the other.
