How to get Crabrawler in Pokemon Go

The only way to encounter a Crabrawler in Pokemon Go is to find one in the wild during the Mythic Blade event, which runs from December 6 to December 11, 2022.

It’s been confirmed that Crabrawler will be a very uncommon encounter in the wild, so you might need to do a lot of exploring before you find one. Remember that using Incense and Lure Modules can help.

It’s not known what will happen to Crabrawler after this event ends, but the chances are it will become quite a rare Pokemon in the game, so catch one while you can!

Can Crabrawler be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

The bad news is that Shiny Crabrawler is currently unavailable to encounter in Pokemon Go.

Niantic rarely debuts a new Pokemon alongside its Shiny variant, so you’ll just have to wait for a future event to add Shiny Crabrawler to your collection.

How to evolve Crabrawler into Crabominable in Pokemon Go

Crabrawler can evolve into Crabominable with 50 Candy and a Glacial Lure Module. You’ll need to place this special Lure Module on a PokeStop and stay near it when you begin the evolution process.

Glacial Lure Modules can be purchased from the in-game Shop for 180 PokeCoins. They are sometimes given out as rewards for completing Timed Research or Special Research stories, although this is rare.

It’s also possible to complete this evolution process if another player has placed a Glacial Lure Module on a PokeStop near you, so keep an eye out for PokeStops with snow falling around them.
