Cherrim forms come in two varieties, along with their pre-evolved Cherubi as well.
As with all things related to forms, it’s never entirely simple, so below we explain everything you need to know about the two Cherrim forms and also Cherubi, including how to get the Sunshine Cherrim Form and how to also get the Most common Cloudy Cherrim form.
Cherrim Forms Explained: How to Get Sunshine Cherrim and Overcast Cherrim in Pokémon Go
Cherubi evolves into Cherrim, and Cherrim can have two forms: Sunshine Cherrim or Overcast Cherrim.
In the main Pokémon games, Cherrim’s form changed on the fly; If a battle had sunny weather conditions, for example, then Cherrim would appear in the battle in her Sunshine form. In any other situation it would appear as standard, Overcast Cherrim.
In Pokémon Go things are similar but not exactly the same. Pokémon don’t change their forms dynamically, they configure themselves into one form or another. In the case of Cherrim, that means that Sunshine Cherrim seems to appear only in sunny weather (more on this in our Pokémon Go weather conditions guide) in the wild. Cloudy Cherrim seems to be what appears in all other weather conditions when it spawns.
It also seems to be the case that evolving a Cherubi will always cause it to evolve into a Clouded Cherrim form, and not a Sunshine form; It seems, at least for now, that Cherrim’s Sunshine form is only available by catching it in the wild. during sunny weather.

How to get Cherubi, the pre-evolution of Cherrim in Pokémon Go
Cherubi is a pre-evolution of Cherrim, which would make you think it’s more of a “baby” Pokémon that is only available in Eggs.
Fortunately, that’s not the case: there are some reports from players on the Silph Road subreddit confirming that Cherubi is available to catch in the wild, especially when you use special Mossy Lures, as well as reports of Cherubi in 5km eggs.
it doesn’t seem It’s not lure-exclusive either (it seems you can catch one in the wild without a lure), so it seems that tracking down this cheeky little cherry Pokémon is a case of good luck and perseverance, although Mossy Lures and Eggs are a good way to narrow things down!
