Pokémon Go - Furfrou forms: How to get Furfrou and change Furfrou's trims explained

Who's a good dog?

Furfrou is a poodle-like Gen 6 Pokémon which can now be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.

In keeping with its inspiration, there's a variety of Furfrou forms for you to collect and each one is obtained by changing your Furfrou's trim.

Certain Furfrou trims are, however, regionally exclusive, so, if you want the complete set, you either need to jump on a plane or trade with a player who has the Furfrou trim you're looking for.

How to get a Furfrou in Pokémon Go explained

Furfrou, the poodle Pokémon, is a Gen 6 Pokémon who was released in Pokémon Go during September 2021.

You can catch a Furfrou through a variety of means during Fashion Week 2021:

Thanks to the variety of methods shown above, you should have much trouble finding and catching a Furfrou.

The easiest method for obtaining this Pokémon is by having it photoboming a snapshot. Another easy method depends on your progress with the Misunderstood Mischief research quest - if you're up-to-date, then you might find it easier to complete the new challenge set, rather than finding a Furfrou in the wild. Otherwise, you can either work through the Fashion Week timed research quest or search for the right field research task.

When searching for the right field research task, it's important to remember that each PokéStop will give out a different task everyday and the one you receive might not be related to Fashion Week. We recommend investigating Pokémon Go groups on Facebook, reddit or Discord if you're planning to go down this route for Furfrou as somebody might have already found the right PokéStop.

Furfrou will be available in the wild once the event has ended, but, since we don't currently know what it's spawn rate will be after Fashion Week, we recommend catching one before the event ends.

How to change Furfrou's form in Pokémon Go

In keeping with its poodle inspired origins, you'll have the ability to change Furfrou's form, also known as its trim, in Pokémon Go.

You must first ensure you have 25 Furfrou candy and 10,000 Stardust before attempting to change a Furfrou's form.

When you're ready, select a Furfrou from your Pokémon Storage. After doing so, you'll notice that, instead of having the option to evolve, Furfrou has a 'Change form' button.

Upon selecting this, you'll be able to select from the Furfrou trims available in your region.

It's important to note that any Furfrou you catch will always begin with its Natural Form and, as long as you meet the requirements, you can change its trim whenever you like.

The World of Wonders season has come to Pokémon Go, giving you the chance to catch Poipole. Don't forget to try out Routes, Gift Exchange and Party Play while you're hunting down rare Pokémon, fighting in the Go Battle League or competing in PokéStop Showcases.

Regionally exclusive Furfrou trims in Pokémon Go explained

Just like the regionally exclusive Pokémon, which Furfrou trims are available to you depends on which region you're currently playing Pokémon Go in.
