How To Get Alolan Marowak In Pokémon GO

Alola is the current focus of Pokémon GO, and Alolan Marowak is still a great Pokémon to utilize. Here's how you can catch it.
How To Get Alolan Marowak In Pokémon GO

Alolan Marowak has been in Pokémon GO for over a couple of years now, but most of the Alolan roster was absent from the game. Now that the Season of Alola is the main priority in the game, players have looked back towards some of the best Pokémon from Alola.

Even with all of the new additions to Pokémon GO and plenty of meta shifts, Alolan Marowak has proven that it deserves a place among top trainer teams. Not only is this Marowak great for a fire-based raid team, but there are also plenty of Great League teams that utilize this version.

Catching an Alolan Marowak in Pokémon GO is very situational because you can't just get the candy that you need. Most Pokémon in the game that has an evolution will have a base that players need to catch. With enough candy, this base can be evolved into the next form.

While Cubone may exist alongside normal Marowak, there is no Alolan version of Cubone in the game. That means you will need to rely on events, wild spawns, and raids. In the past, this Alolan was placed in three-star raids and will continue to be involved in the rotation. This is one of the best ways to earn the Pokémon.

Since the Season of Alola went live in the game, there hasn't been much attention on Marowak. There had to be time given to all of the other starters in the region that were given their debut. But at the end of May, Alolan Marowak will be part of a sendoff celebration.

The event is called Alola to Alola and will contain a couple of different ways to get your own Marowak. The first is to select the quest labelled as the Akala Island path. Choosing this path will end up in an encounter with a full Marowak.

Another great part of the event is the ability to evolve Kanto Cubone into the Alolan evolution. Any Cubone evolved during this period will automatically get the Shadow Bone charged attack. This event will take place from the 25th of May to the 31st of May in 2022.

The best moveset for Alolan Marowak

Once you have your very own Alolan Marowak, it's time to set it up for raids and battles. There's a reason that this Pokémon is sought out within the game, and it can easily dominate a well-balanced Great League team. But the moves need to make sense.

For the Fast Attack, Fire Spin is the best option. Not only will this attack fill in the gap for Fire-type damage, but it also has a ton of charge potential for the main attacks. This is an easy pick for the moveset.

As for the Charge Attacks, you will want Shadow Bone and Bone Club. Shadow Bone is more important and is an Elite TM. It charges incredibly fast and deals a ton of damage. Bone Club is a great way to spam and mix the other player up. Before you know it, the match is over and Alolan Marowak moves on.
