Clauncher is a Water-type Pokemon that’s coming to Pokemon Go during the Rivals’ Week event. There are some other Pokemon that will be appearing for the first time in the same event, along with special challenges and more. In our Clauncher Pokemon GO – Rivals Week guide, we’ll show you the details of Rivals’ Week, so that you can prepare, as well as how to get Clauncher.
Rivals’ Week Pokemon Go Event Details
The Rivals’ Week Pokemon Go event starts on Tuesday, April 13th, at 10:00 AM, and ends on Sunday, April 18th, at 8:00 PM. Some of the main draws is that Skrelp and Clauncher will make their Pokemon Go debuts during the event, as well as Therian Forme Landorus. The latter will appear in five-star raids. There’s also the Global Challenge Arena, in which “all Trainers around the world can work together to win Raid Battles and unlock a 2× Catch Stardust bonus for the duration of the event,” according to Niantic. Here are some other details, from the same announcement:
- Pokémon known for their rivalries will be appearing more often in the wild, such as Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, Seviper, and more!
- The following Pokémon will be hatching from 5 km Eggs throughout the event: Machop, Tyrogue, Elekid, Magby, Makuhita, Meditite, Zangoose, and Seviper.
- Rivalries will continue in raids as well! Pokémon like Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Zangoose, Seviper, and more will be appearing in raids!
- Enjoy event-exclusive Field Research tasks that will lead to encounters with rival Pokémon, such as Skrelp and Clauncher, as well.
- Sources tell us that Team GO Rocket will be taking over PokéStops more often. Their balloons will also be appearing more frequently!
How to Get Clauncher in Pokemon Go
To get Clauncher in Pokemon Go, you first have to wait for Rivals’ Week to start on April 13th. It won’t be available until then. Once the event does kick off, I expect that they will be spawning quite a lot, along with Skrelp, “in the wild, in raids, and in encounters after you complete Field Research tasks.”. I assume that catching them won’t be any different than other Pokemon. Now, considering that Clauncher is a Water-type creature, maybe they’ll tend to spawn more around bodies of water. We can’t say for certain, though, until the event begins. We’ll update the guide with more specific info when we can.
The current event in Pokemon Go that has the trainers running around is, of course Spring into Spring. Among other things, it features Collection Challenges that you can complete. We’ve written two guides to help you on this journey, showing you how to get Diggersby and Azumarill.
