Master Pokemon GO: Evolve Your Primeape in the Latest Clash Event

TOKYO, Jan 22 (News On Japan) - Niantic, Inc. and Pokemon's mobile app for iOS/Android, "Pokemon GO," is currently hosting the "Raging Battles" event in the GO Battle League from January 19th.

To evolve Primeape, battle, battle, and battle some more!!!! With continuous implementations from "Pokémon Sword and Shield," Annihilape has been added during the GO Battle League event.

The evolution method requires "winning 30 battles against Ghost or Psychic-type Pokémon while having Primeape as your buddy." There is no need to use Primeape in battle, so there's no worry about raising it, but be aware that you must complete a considerable number of 30 victories.

During the event, there is an increased appearance of Team GO Rocket PokéStops and balloons, making it significantly easier to evolve now! Dark-type Pokémon, which are effective against both Ghost and Psychic types, will be particularly useful.

Even if you're lucky enough to encounter Team GO Rocket using Ghost or Psychic types, you'll need to repeat this at least 10 times, so it takes a considerable amount of time. It has been confirmed that battles against team leaders also count.

The opponent is Blanche, the Mystic leader. In the second battle of the Master League, Blanche sends out Metagross, so take advantage of this when there's no sign of Team GO Rocket. Additionally, the spawn rate of Mankey is increased during the event, and shiny versions are also available. With some luck, you might be able to get a shiny Annilihape during the event.

There are three collection challenges, one centered around the GO Battle League. The remaining two involve catching specific Pokémon. The collection challenges require catching a small number of Pokémon, and there are no particularly rare spawns, so it should be easy to complete.

Once you complete the GO Battle League, you can get a hat styled after "Pokémon LEGENDS Arceus." Now we're hoping for the implementation of a long coat! Also, don't forget about Throh and Sawk. Throh can be encountered in Japan, but Sawk is generally exclusive to overseas, so make sure to catch them during this opportunity. Shiny versions are also available, so don't miss this chance! And don't forget about Scraggy, which can also be reliably farmed for candies. The event runs until 8 PM on January 24th. During the event, collect shiny Pokémon, candies, and Sirfetch'd!
