How to get Fomantis in Pokémon Go

Fomantis first appeared in Pokémon Go during the Lush Jungle event on Tuesday, March 22, 2022.

Fomantis can be obtained through a variety of methods both during and outside of this event:

  • In the wild: Appears most frequently during the Lush Jungle event.
  • Lush Jungle Field Research Task: Use 10 Berries to Help Catch Pokémon
  • An Akala Adventure Special Research Mission: Complete Step 1

Thanks to the methods listed above, you are guaranteed to catch at least one Fomantis in Pokémon Go by completing Step 1 of An Akala Adventure.

When it comes to capturing Fomantis during the Lush Jungle event, we recommend searching for them in the wild since their spawn rate has increased. Keep an eye on your Pokémon Radar to know when a Fomantis is nearby!

As of this writing, we don’t know what Fomantis’ spawn rate will be once the Lush Jungle event ends, but there’s a chance, like most recently released Pokémon, that it’ll be pretty good.

If you want to catch Fomantis completing the Lush Jungle Field Research task, it’s important to remember that the tasks offered by PokéStops change from day to day, which can make it difficult to find the task. For this method, we recommend finding a Pokémon Go group for your local area, because someone else may have already found the right PokéStop.

The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! The Psychic Spectular event is back! You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

How to evolve Fomantis into Lurantis in Pokémon Go

To evolve Fomantis into Lurantis in Pokémon Go, you need 50 Fomantis Candy and evolve during the day.

You can easily collect enough Fomantis candy using Pinap Berries by catching them or by walking with Fomantis as your Pokémon friend.

It’s very easy to calculate this time of day in Pokémon Go, because it follows the current time in your region. This means that if it is daytime in your current reality, it will also be daytime in Pokémon Go.

A small check mark will also appear next to the sun symbol on Fomantis’ evolution button to let you know that it is possible to evolve it into Lurantis.

This evolution method is similar to how Yungoos evolves into Gumshoos and Rockruff evolves into its Noon or Midnight form. It’s also much easier than turning Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon thanks to the lack of walking and companion requirements.

Good luck adding Fomantis and Lurantis to your Pokédex!
