Dawn Wings Necrozma made its way into Pokemon Go at the start of the Go Fest 2024, so here’s all you need to know about this dual Psychic/Ghost Legendary, including its weaknesses and best counters.

The Legendary Necrozma is part of the Light Trio, along with Gen 7’s mascots Solgaleo and Lunala, and has the rare power of being able to fuse with them to get new Pokemon forms.

While the fusion between Necrozma and Solgaleo results in Dusk Mane Necrozma, the one with Lunala creates a Psychic/Ghost-type creature called Dawn Wings Necrozma.

Now that Necrozma is appearing in 5-Star Raids as part of the Pokemon Go Fest 2024 celebrations, here’s all you need to know about this particular fusion.

As a dual Psychic/Ghost-type Legendary, Dawn Wings Necrozma has a double weakness to both Ghost and Dark-type moves, so keep that in mind when building your team.

On the other hand, it is resistant to Poison, Psychic, Normal, and Fighting-type attacks, so don’t use any of them during battle, as they won’t deal much damage.

The list above includes Megas, Legendaries, Shadow, and other common Pokemon so there should be something for trainers of all levels.

However, even though the creatures listed are very effective against Dawn Wings Necrozma, they still need to be leveled up and know the proper moves if you want to win the encounter.

How to get Dawn Wings Necrozma in Pokemon Go

The only way trainers can get their hands on Dawn Wings Necrozma in the game is by fusing a Necrozma with Lunala.

To get this fusion, they must catch both Necrozma and Lunala first. Luckily, Necrozma is appearing as a 5-Star Raid Boss during the Pokemon Go Fest 2024 events in SendaiMadrid, and New York, which will run from May 30, 2024, until July 14, 2024.

Once trainers have both creatures, they’ll require the following:

  • 1000 Lunar Fusion Energy (obtained from Special Research Tasks)
  • 30 Necrozma Candy
  • 30 Cosmog Candy

After completing all the requirements, all you have to do is go to your Necrozma’s screen and tap on the Lunala Fuse button. Learn more about how to get Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings Necrozma in Pokemon Go with our full guide.

Can Dawn Wings Necrozma be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Dawn Wings Necrozma can be Shiny in Pokemon Go, as this variation was introduced at the beginning of the Pokemon Go Fest 2024.

Luckily for players, even though it’s a fused Pokemon, you won’t need both parts to be Shiny. To get a Shiny Dawn Wings Necrozma, you’ll need a Shiny Necrozma and just a regular Lunala.

Shiny Dawn Wings Necrozma looks quite different than its regular form, with pale pink tones and deep blueish details, very similar to Shiny Dusk Mane Necrozma’s look.
