How to catch a Galarian Zigzagoon during Go Fest 2021 in Pokémon Go


Galarian Zigzagoon is the dark and normal-type variant of Zigzagoon, which evolves into the Galarian Linoone and Obstagoomn. Usually, in Pokémon Go, this psychic pony can only be obtained from hatching 7km eggs, but it has also appeared in raids.

During Go Fest 2021, you can obtain a costume Galarain Zigzagoon which is wearing a Meloetta inspired hat.

This special Galarian Zigzagoon can be obtained by battling it in one-star raids during Day One - Saturday, 17th July - of Go Fest 2021.

Players who've purchased a Go Fest 2021 ticket can also obtain it by selecting the 'Zigzagoon' path when progressing through The Melody Pokémon special research quest. It's important to note, however, that if you do choose to receive Galarian Zigzagoon from this quest, you won't be able to receive a Galarian Ponyta using the same method.
