Skrelp is a Poison/Water type Pokemon that is coming to Pokemon Go in a little bit. Since any new creature is always a reason to celebrate, people are wondering how they’ll be able to catch a Skrelp. The Pokedex is always expanding, and there’s little more satisfying for a dedicated trainer than having a full Pokedex. So, here’s our Skrelp Pokemon Go How to Catch Skrelp guide to share all the info we have.
How to Catch Skrelp in Pokemon Go
To catch Skrelp in Pokemon Go, you’ll first have to wait for the Rivals’ Week event. It starts on April 13th at 10:00 AM local time, and ends on April 18th at 8:00 PM, also local time. That’s when both Skrelp and Clauncher will be making their debut in the game. According to Niantic, these two will be “appearing in the wild, in raids, and in encounters after you complete Field Research tasks.” So, odds are that you’ll be able to catch a lot of both Pokemon, especially if you have some Lures on you.
Now, obviously, we can’t say exactly how to catch Skrelp at this time, considering that there’s still about a week to go until Rivals’ Week. However, we can speculate. Considering that Skrelp tends to spawn in the sea in regular Pokemon games, one can assume that they’ll spawn near bodies of water. If that does turn out to be the case, those of you that live far from water might have a harder time getting this Pokemon. But, of course, we’ll only know for sure once Rivals’ Week kicks off.
That’s basically all we know about Skrelp in Pokemon Go and how to catch it at time of writing. We’ll update the article with more concrete information as it becomes available.
