Darumaka's Shiny form will be revealed on the capture screen, so players don't have to stock up on Poke balls. However, it's recommended to catch Darumaka's regular form as Darumaka candy can be useful for evolving or leveling up.

Darumaka's Shiny form includes a pink and yellow color scheme. This Fire-type Pokemon's go-to moves are Fire Fang, Flame Charge, and Return.

Darumaka is resistant against Ice-, Fire-, Grass-, Steel-, Bug-, and Fairy-type Pokemon. The best counters against Darumaka include Ground-, Rock-, and Water-type Pokemon.

Players should use 50 Candy when evolving this Pokemon into Darmanitan.
