As part of Sustainable Development Week Binacle and Barbaracle have arrived Pokémon GO for the very first time. Both of these Rock and Water-type species offer unique abilities in battle, but most will just want to check off their entry into the Pokédex. And we're here to help, breaking down all the different methods available to you during the event. Here's how to catch Binacle in Pokémon GO and how to evolve it into Barbaracle.
How to Catch Binacle in Pokémon GO
Binacle is coming to Pokémon GO as part of Sustainability Week, an event that begins Tuesday, April 20 at 10 a.m. local time. While species will likely still be available after the event ends, they will be much rarer, so be sure to get as many as you can while they're more common. The event ends Sunday, April 25 at 20 p.m. for your local time zone, so try to have them in your collection by then.
How can you catch them? There are many ways, although some are much simpler than others. First, Binacle will spawn in the wild, but rarity might be an issue. We don't know how common they will be in your area, so try to keep an eye on the Nearby Radar menu and use the Incense and/or Lure mods to boost event-exclusive spawns if you're struggling to catch Binacle.
Binacle will not hatch from eggs, but will appear in raids. As a 1-star raid boss, just throw your strongest Grass-type counter at them and you should be fine. Field Research tasks will also offer Binacle as a reward, in case you can't find the raids. We'll update here when we know more, including the specific task to complete to get Binacle as a reward. These have been hard to come by for recent events, so be prepared to make lots of Poké Stops to try and find the event-exclusive Field Research tasks, then complete them and redeem them to catch one. another Binacle.
why do you need it? This is a key part of the method to evolve Binacle into Barbaracle in Pokémon GO.
How to evolve Binacle into Barbaracle
There is no special trick to evolve Binacle into Barbaracle, fortunately. You don't need to make them your friend or drag them around the map. All it takes is 50 Binacle Candy and the press of a button. Since each catch can yield 3-6 Candies depending on your Pinap Berry usage, you should just catch around 10 to get enough. If they are harder to find near you, try to use Pinaps as much as you can until you reach the 50 candy limit. Then all you have to do is select the Binacle to evolve into the Barbaracle and press the button. But let's answer one last question before we finish.
Can Binacle Be Brilliant During Sustainability Week
At the time of the species release in Pokémon GO for Sustainability Week, Shiny Binacle will not be available. Typically, the character's first intro is just the normal version like this, with a new event and later release for the shiny variant. Could there be a Binacle Community Day in the distant future? It's very possible, so watch for that at some point, or another Shiny Binacle release.
And that's how to catch Binacle and how to evolve it into Barbaracle in Pokémon GO.
