More interesting Pokémon for the GO Fest in Berlin
In addition to the strong specimens, you can also expect one or the other new Shiny and a few rare or even regional Pokémon during the GO Fest in Berlin, which you should also secure. So keep an eye out for the following monsters:
Camouflage Pignon: The Generation 5 Pokémon is of the Grass and Poison types. It celebrates its shiny debut at the GO Fest in Berlin and can therefore be obtained in its dazzling form for the first time in the “Electric Garden” habitat.
So if you would like a dazzling specimen, you should not ignore Tarnpignon. You can recognize it by the blue area on its head.
Peru: The water Pokémon Perlu comes from the 3rd generation of games. It can be evolved into Aalabyss and Saganbyss without any tricks. The development is therefore random. For this reason, you should collect plenty of Perlu so that you can develop into both variants. In addition, with a bit of luck, you may even encounter a Shiny.
Sodamak and Vegimak: Two regional Pokémon that you can catch at GO Fest in Berlin are Sodamak and Vegimak. Sodamak, which is of the Water type, evolves into Sodachita and is normally only available in America and Greenland. You can recognize it by its blue head, blue hair and ears.
Vegimak, on the other hand, is at home in the Pacific region and in Asia. The Grass-type Pokémon has the Vegichita evolution and is easily recognized by its green body. However, there are currently no dazzling variants of Sodamak and Vegimak in the game.
Even if both Pokémon and their further developments are not particularly strong, you should at least secure them for the entry in the PokéDex at the GO Fest. Since they are regional, you cannot find them outside of special events in Germany.
You can find more regional Pokémon and where to find them in our corresponding guide:

Grillmak: In addition to Sodamak and Vegimak, there is also Grillmak. However, this little Fire-type Pokémon is native to Europe, so you can occasionally find it in the game. However, Grillmak will be available as a Shiny for the first time as part of the live event in Berlin.
So if you want to be among the first with a dazzling Grillmak, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity. You can recognize it by its orange body.
Unknown: During the GO Fest in Berlin, various Unown should also spawn in the wild. The forms A, B, E, L, R, S, T have been announced. You should definitely secure these. The 2nd generation Psychic-type Pokémon is usually very rarely found in the wild.
So if you’re still missing one of the forms in the PokéDex or you’re still looking for a Shiny, then the live event is your chance.
Relaxo with cowboy hat: The Normal Pokémon Snorlax also spawns in the wild during the GO Fest in Berlin, disguised with a special cowboy hat.
With a bit of luck, you can even get your hands on the special costumed Pokémon in its Shiny variant. You can recognize it by its dark blue body. In addition, Relaxo is also suitable as a good arena defender.
