Shaymin is finally making its Pokemon Go debut in 2022, and whether you’re looking for Land Forme or Sky Forme, we’ve got the details you need to catch this Mythical creature.

The arrival of a new Legendary or Mythical Pokemon in Pokemon Go is always an exciting time – partly because it’s a chance to fill out your Pokedex, and partly because they can be really great in PvP and Raids.

Up next is Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokemon from the Sinnoh region. Like most Mythicals and Legendaries, adding one to your collection won’t be as easy as finding it in the wild – there’s a specific method to follow.

There are also two different versions, Land Forme and Sky Forme, which makes the process even more difficult. To help you out, you’ll find all the information you need to catch both Shaymin forms right here.

Can Shaymin change forms in Pokemon Go?

Forms have been treated a little inconsistently in Pokemon Go so far. For example, Giratina’s forms are treated as two separate Pokemon, while Hoopa is a single Pokemon that can change forms whenever.

It’s hard to say whether Shaymin will be able to change forms or not, but considering Land Forme and Sky Forme are debuting during different events, it probably won’t be able to change forms.
