Galarian Zigzagoon Guide Pokémon GO will teach everything you need to know about the newest addition to Pokémon GO.

Galarian Zigzagoon will be joining some of its other Galarian form Pokémon during the Throwback Champion event. Starting June 3, Galarian forms of Pokémon will be introduced to Pokémon GO, alongside their evolved forms.

Galarian Zigzagoon is a dual Dark/Normal type, first introduced in Sword and Shield. It evolves into Galarian Linoone and once again into the new Obstagoon.

During the event, Galarian Zigzagoon is confirmed to hatch from 7km eggs during the Throwback Champion event. It's simple enough to find: just hatch a ton of eggs. You might also hatch a normal Zigzagoon, but you should be able to hit a Galarian one with some perseverance.

Galarian Zigzagoon is just a regional version of a fairly common Pokémon. It shouldn't give youany trouble on locating, especially since it will hatch from eggs during the event.

Galarian Zigzagoon will eventually evolve into Obstagoon, keeping its Normal/Dark typing. It's unknown how Obstagoon will fare in battle or how its stats will look like, but it can learn a mix of powerful Normal, Dark and Fighting type moves. It's only weak to three types: Fighting, Fairy and Bug.

To defeat an Obstagoon, it's double weak to Fighting and has no real moves to cover that weakness. Use strong Fighting Pokémon to take on any member of the Galarian Zigzagoon family.
