Everything you need to know about the caring fish Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

Alomomola, the Gen 5 water-type Pokémon whose name is annoying to spell, likes to make appearances in raids in Pokémon Go.

If, however, you're wanting to catch an Alomomola for the Valentine's Day Collection Challenge, then you might find catching via its dedicated field research task easier.

Everything you need to know about Alomomola

Alomomola was released as part of the Valentine's Day 2020 event in Pokémon Go, alongside fellow Gen 5 Pokémon, Audino.

Alomomola was inspired by a number of different fish. It's body resembles that of an ocean sunfish and the fact it can wrap itself in a special membrane may be inspired by the parrotfish. Some species of the parrotfish have the ability to create a mucus before they sleep, which hides its scent and, in doing so, protect the fish from nearby predators.

Good luck defeating Alomomola in Pokémon Go!
