The Festival of Colors event has returned to Pokemon Go for March 2023, with plenty of things to enjoy like a Collection Challenge and themed spawns – but one of the biggest features is the arrival of Bruxish.

How to Catch Bruxish in Pokemon Go

There are two ways to meet Bruxish during the Festival of Colors:

  • Like a wild spawn.
  • As a 1-Star Raid Boss in a gym.

The easiest method of catching a Bruxish is to go scouting and find one in the wild, especially when using frankincense to attract more wild spawns to your location. You can also look at the “nearby” feature to see if there’s Bruxish at nearby points of interest.

An alternate way to encounter Bruxish is to defeat one in a Raid Battle. It’s only a 1-Star Raid Boss so you shouldn’t have too much trouble taking him out solo, but it’s a good idea to use Bug, Dark, Electric, Ghost and Grass type attacks for maximum damage.

We’re not sure what will happen to Bruxish once the Festival of Colors event is over, but if recent Pokemon debuts are anything to go by, it could become quite a rare encounter, so it’s best to catch as many as you need while you can.

Can Bruxish be shiny in Pokemon Go?

The bad news is that Shiny Bruxish is Currently not available in pokemon go.

Niantic rarely introduces a new Pokemon alongside its Shiny variant, so you’ll just have to wait for a future event to add Shiny Bruxish to your collection.

Does Bruxish have an evolution in Pokemon Go?

Bruxish is the only member of his Pokemon family, which is what it means cannot evolve in Pokemon Go – or any other game for that matter.

While it might not be that exciting to have a Pokemon that can’t evolve, it does mean you can spend less time hunting Bruxish, as there’s no need to farm Candy once you’ve caught one to fill your Pokedex.
