Dewpider makes its Pokemon Go debut as part of the Water Festival 2022 event, but how do you catch it? And can it be Shiny? Let’s find out.
The latest major event on the Pokemon Go calendar is the Water Festival, returning in May 2022 with a focus on Water-type wild spawns, Catch-themed Timed Research, and the guardian god Tapu Fini.
There will also be a new species from the Alola region finally making its Pokemon Go debut: the Water/Bug type Dewpider! This means that players can develop an Araquanid to add to their collection as well.
In this article, you’ll find all the details you need to catch Dewpider in Pokemon Go, as well as details of the evolution process and whether or not it can be Shiny.
How to catch Dewpider in Pokemon Go
The easiest way to catch Dewpider in Pokemon Go is by: find one in the wild† If you’re having trouble spawning one, use the radar feature on the overworld map to see if there’s one at a nearby landmark.
You can also unlock a guaranteed encounter with Dewpider by using the Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Investigation or by filling in specific Field Research Tasks throughout the event.
How to evolve Dewpider into Araquanid in Pokemon Go
Dewpider is able to evolve into Arquanid using 50 Candy† No special items or buddy tasks are required for this evolution process.
If you’re struggling to collect enough candy, focus on catching as much Dewpider as you can while out in the wild or completing Timed Research and Field Research tasks.
Remember you can use Pinap Berries to earn extra candy when catching Dewpider. You can also Handover everything you don’t need for a small amount of Candy.
Can Dewpider be shiny in Pokemon Go?
The bad news is that Shiny Dewpider is currently not available in Pokemon Go, and it probably won’t be added to the game for a while. This means that Shiny Araquanid is also not available.
Niantic rarely introduces a new species alongside the Shiny variant, so you’ll have to make do with regular Dewpider for now. However, keep an eye out for future events.
