Pokémon GO trainers want to know how they can get Buzzwole, the Ultra Beast, in Pokemon GO.

More Ultra Beasts are appearing from giant wormholes in Pokemon GO. After the appearance of Nihilego, the Ultra Recon Squad has upped their efforts to contain these unique and special creatures. At the time of writing, there are only four in existence, and each has come from a faraway world.

Here’s what you need to know about Buzzwole.

How to Get Buzzwole in Pokemon GO

Buzzwole is only available during Pokemon GO Fest in Seattle. Therefore, the only way to catch it is to participate in the event. Trainers who join in during Pokemon GO Fest Seattle and obtain the special research line will be able to encounter this Pokemon as part of the line.

The encounter with Buzzwole should operate much like any other special research encounter Pokemon. Trainers will be given a number of chances to add them to their collection.

Buzzwole, the “Swollen” Pokemon, is actually rather common in its own world. There are loads of Buzzwole where it comes from. However, this isn’t its world, and therefore it is a rather dangerous opponent. Its PokeDex number is #794.
