Abomasnow Pokémon GO has made its Mega Evolution debut, and what better way to get ready than to get some Abomasnow for yourself? Here's how to get an Abomasnow in Pokémon GO.

Abomasnow Pokémon GO: How to Catch

Abomasnow is the evolved form of Snover. As such, you'll need to evolve a Snover with 50 candy. Luckily Snover will be featured in an upcoming Spotlight Hours event, so you'll be able to take your pick and have enough candy to evolve it.

At 6 p.m. on December 29 in your local time, you'll be able to find more Snover in the wild than usual. You'll have an hour to catch as many Snover as you can before you evolve the best one into Abomasnow.

You'll earn Mega Abomasnow Energy by battling it in Mega Raids. You don't need Abomasnow to collect the Energy, so you can gather Energy in preparation for your Abomasnow.

Abomasnow is Grass and Ice type, which gives it a double weakness to Fire. In a Mega Raid, you earn more Energy the fast you beat it, so bring out your best Fire types to beat it. It's a formidable Pokémon in both Great and Ultra Leagues, so it'll be worth your effort to capture one.
