These are the 10 strongest monsters for GO Fest 2022
On both event days, you will encounter numerous Pokémon in the wilds of Pokémon GO as well as in raids. You should definitely secure some of them, as they are particularly strong in raids or PvP battles.
We’ll show you below what they are and where you can get them during the GO Fest. We based the order of the Pokémon on the timing of the event.
What is this Pokemon? Kyogre is a legendary water-type Pokémon from the 3rd generation of games. It can score with strong values in attack, endurance and defense and has a move set with cascade and surfer, which causes a lot of damage to the opponent. This makes Kyogre one of the best water attackers in the game.
Where can you get it for the GO Fest? Kyogre will be found in the level 5 raids on the first day of the event. This makes it available to all trainers. In our raid guide you will find the 20 best counterattacks against the legendary raid boss.
Can you catch Shiny Kyogre? Yes. After winning the raid, you may encounter a Shiny Kyogre with a bit of luck. Keep an eye out for a purple one.
What is this Pokemon? Groudon is also a legendary Pokémon from the 3rd generation of games. It belongs to the Boden type and has no advances or advancements. It convinces above all with its good values.
In attack, it is slightly weaker than Stalobor. Still, Groudon is one of the best attackers in the game.
Where can you get it for the GO Fest? Just like Kyogre, it will rule the 5-man raids on Saturday, which is why it is also available for all players. And even after the GO Fest, Groudon will stay with you in the raids from June 7th to June 16th.
Here you will find the best counters against Groudon in the raid guide.
Can you catch Shiny Groudon? Yes. You can recognize Shiny-Groudon by its neon-colored body and, with a bit of luck, it can be caught after the raid.
What is this Pokemon? Milza is a Dragon Pokémon from the 5th generation of games, which can be further evolved into Maxax via Sharfax. Maxax can score especially with an enormous attack value.
With a move set of dragon rod and dragon claw, Maxax also does a lot of damage to the opponent. This makes it one of the top 10 dragon attackers in the game.
Also, Milza is one of those Pokémon that you usually rarely encounter in game, so catching it during GO Fest is doubly rewarding.
Where can you get it for the GO Fest? Milza will be found in level 1 raids for all players on both event days. In addition, with a bit of luck, it should also spawn wildly in the “Plain” habitat on Saturday. Ticket holders will also receive it as an exclusive spawn above the smoke during this time.
Can you catch Shiny Spleen? Yes, Shiny Milza will also be in the game for the first time. You can recognize it by its grey-green body.
What is this Pokemon? Larvitar is a second-generation Ground and Rock-type Pokémon. It can be evolved via Pupitar into Despotar.
Despotar can score especially with a strong attack and a long endurance. And his defense is solid too. It is therefore one of the best rock attackers in Pokémon GO.
Where can you get it for the GO Fest? On the first day of the event, Larvitar spawns in the wild during the “Plains” habitat. It is available there for all players, whether you are playing with or without a ticket. And you can also meet him in the wilderness on Sunday.

Where can you get it for the GO Fest? Rotomurf spawns just like Larvitar during the first day of GO Fest in the plains habitat and again in the wild on Sunday. It will also be accessible to all players.
Can you catch Shiny Rotomurf? No, Rotomurf is not yet in the game in its shiny form.
What is this Pokemon? Knilz is a 3rd generation Grass-type Pokémon that can evolve into Boulder. Boasting a high Attack stat and a powerful Counterattack and Power Strike moveset, Pokemon ranks among the best fighting attackers in Pokémon GO.

What is this Pokemon? The Ice and Ground-type Squeaky has a really powerful evolution. Mamutel scores with a strong attack and good stamina and defense values. This makes him one of the best ice and ground attackers in the game.
But Mamutel is also impressive in the GO battle league. With its Powder, Avalanche, and Steamroller moveset, it’s a fit candidate for the Masters League.
Where can you get it for the GO Fest? In the “Tundra” habitat on the first day of the event, you have a chance to encounter a squeaky both with and without a ticket. It should spawn wildly again on Sunday.
