As part of the Festival of Lights in Pokémon GO, from November 5 to 14, Dedenne arrived in Niantic's blockbuster title. This Electric/Fairy-type is a long-awaited addition to the world of Pokemon GO due to its unique typing and substantial cute factor. In this guide, we'll explain how you can add the latest Electro-Mouse to your team.
How to Catch Dedenne in Pokemon GO
Although recently made available in-game, there is no shortage of ways to get your own Dedenne. The first and most obvious method is to encounter one in the wild. While this isn't a guaranteed way to encounter Dedenne, there should be enough for you to locate one on your next egg hatch walk.
The second way to get your Dedenne is to participate in one-star raids. Alongside Charmander, Vulpix, Chinchou, and Litwick, Dedenne is one of the possible battles you'll face in a One Star Raid during the Festival of Light event. So be sure to keep an eye out for the Electric/Fairy type when battling and training.
Finally, if you can complete the Field Research task to power up Pokemon 10 times, you will be rewarded with the chance to catch a Dedenne. This method is probably the easiest if you're only looking for one mouse Pokemon, but if you're looking to find as many as you can and stock up on candy, the other two options will yield better results.
Be sure to get your Dedenne before November 14, as there's no indication of how rare a find might be after the Festival of Light event ends. If you're still having trouble encountering the new addition during the event, try casting a Magnetic Lure as it will increase your chances of finding this Electric-type.
