Trainers want to know how to get Totodile as part of the 5-Year Anniversay Collection Challenge in Pokemon GO.

As part of its fifth anniversary celebration, Pokemon GO developer, Niantic Labs, has decided to feature every starter Pokemon from each of the six regions currently available in-game. Trainers can encounter these Pokemon using a variety of different methods from incense to lures, exploring, and more. Additionally, the studio has implemented a Collection Challenge to encourage trainers to catch ‘em all.

Here’s how to get Totodile in Pokemon GO.

Totodile will only show up at part of a research reward or when trainers activate a lure at a local PokeStop. Unfortunately for those looking to add a slew of Totodile to their storage, it appears this Pokemon is rather particular about its appearances. Additionally, it seems to either have or been influenced by its region starter-siblings—for better or worse.

While the methods to attract a Totodile are few, the number of other featured Pokemon available for capture using those methods are many. In fact, every other featured Pokemon from all six available regions can be found as a research reward or by activating a Lure. That is to say, Totodile is only one out of 18 species trainers can expect to see, meaning its chances of showing up don’t get much better.

Totodile’s PokeDex number is 158. Also known as the “Big Jaw” Pokemon, trainers should recognize this gator-like species for its energetic nature and powerful jaws. What a Totodile might see as “playful nipping” can actually cause serious injury if one isn’t careful.

Trainers can prompt their Totodile to evolve into Croconaw and, later, Feraligatr using 25 and 100 candies, respectively.
