How to catch Diancie in Pokémon Go.

The Glitz and Glam special research offers every Pokémon Go player the chance to catch Diancie for free! (Though if you already have one in your collection, you'll earn more Diancie Candy instead.)

Diancie's free global release follows Pokémon Go tradition where the mythical Pokémon debut for a past Go Fest event becomes freely available via a special research quest some time after said event. We've seen similar releases in the past for Shaymin and Meloetta.

While originally released as part of Go Fest 2024, Diancie can now be caught by all Pokémon Go players by completing the Glitz and Glam quest steps and rewards.

'Glitz and Glam' quest steps and rewards in Pokémon Go

Below you'll find the Glitz and Glam quest steps which eventually lead you to catching a mythical Diancie in Pokémon Go. Since it's a special research quest, Glitz and Glam can be completed whenever you like.

It's important to note, however, that you will not catch a Diancie if you've previously caught one through one of the Go Fest 2023 quests, such as Fascinating Facets. Instead, you'll earn additional Diancie Candy.

Be warned the section below contains spoilers for both the quest steps and rewards for Glitz and Glam.

How Diancie first debuted in Pokémon Go

Diancie originally debuted in Pokémon Go as part of the Go Fest 2023 celebrations. It first became available to players who attended the Go Fest 2023 event in Osaka or London on Friday 4th August. Diancie could then be caught by players who attended the in-person Go Fest 2023 event in New York and finally worldwide on Saturday 26th August during the Go Fest 2023 Global event.

During all of these instances, catching Diancie was pay-to-play content. Players who purchased tickets for Go Fest 2024 Global can catch Diancie once they're completed Step 4 of Fascinating Facets. If you were one of these players, then, instead of a second Diancie, you'll receive additional Candy for this Pokémon.

Mega Diancie was also released alongside Diancie - appearing in Mega Raids during both the in-person and global Go Fest events. To help players attending these events complete this Mega Evolution, you could not only earn additional Mega Diancie Energy through specific field research tasks but by catching Carbink.

Nearly a year later, like certain mythical Pokémon in the past such as Shaymin, Diancie has been made available to all Pokémon Go players for free via the Glitz and Glam special research quest.

Good luck catching Diancie in Pokémon Go!
