How to catch Bounsweet in Pokemon Go

The easiest way to catch Bounsweet is to go out exploring and find one in the wild, although it’s worth pointing out that Bounsweet is listed as a rare encounter so your chances of finding one this way are probably going to be quite slim.

Remember to check the Nearby feature to see if there are any Bounsweet at landmarks near your current location. You can also use Incense to increase the number of wild spawns as you explore.

How to evolve Bounsweet in Pokemon Go

You can evolve Bounsweet into Steenee once you’ve collected 25 Candy. You can then evolve Steenee into Tsareena with 100 Candy.

This will be quite a time-consuming evolution process, especially as Bounsweet is a rare encounter, so remember to use Pinap Berries when catching wild Bounsweet to get double the Candy as a reward.

If you’re struggling to save up enough Candy, you can also set Bounsweet as your Buddy Pokemon and it will find Candy as you go out exploring together.

Can Bounsweet be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

The bad news is that Shiny Bounsweet is currently unavailable in Pokemon Go.

It’s very rare for a new species to debut in Pokemon Go alongside its Shiny variant, so you’ll have to make do with regular Bounsweet for now.
