The Legendary Necrozma debuted in Pokemon Go at the start of the Go Fest 2024 event along with its Solgaleo fusion, Dusk Mane Necrozma. Here’s all you need to know about this powerful Psychic/Steel-type Pokemon.

The Psychic-type Necrozma was introduced to the Pokemon franchise in Gen 7 and it’s part of the Legendary Light Trio along with Solgaleo and Lunala. It has three alternate forms, each one with a new shape and different secondary typings.

Dusk Mane Necrozma is the result of the fusion between Necrozma and Solgaleo, and players can now get it thanks to the Pokemon Go Fest 2024.

Here’s all you need to know before challenging this Psychic/Steel Legendary in Niantic’s game.

Dusk Mane Necrozma weaknesses in Pokemon Go

As a dual Psychic/Steel-type Legendary, Dusk Mane Necrozma is weak to Ground, Ghost, Fire, and Dark-type moves, so keep that in mind when building your team.

Nonetheless, its incredible type combination makes Dusk Mane Necrozma resistant to a lot of types including Normal, Flying, Rock, Steel, Grass, Ice, Dragon, Fairy, Poison, and Psychic-type attacks, so don’t use any of them during battle, as they won’t deal much damage.

How to get Dusk Mane Necrozma in Pokemon Go

The only way players can get Dusk Mane Necrozma in Pokemon Go is by fusing a Necrozma with Solgaleo.

To get this fusion, players must catch both Pokemon first. Luckily, Necrozma will appear as a 5-Star Raid Boss during the Pokemon Go Fest 2024 Global event which will run from July 13, 2024, until July 14, 2024.

Once trainers have both creatures, they’ll require:

  • 1000 Solar 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 Solgaleo Fuse button.

Can Dusk Mane Necrozma be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Dusk Mane Necrozma can be Shiny in Pokemon Go, as this variation was introduced into the game at the same time as its regular version.

Even though it’s a fused Pokemon, you won’t need both parts to be Shiny. To get a Shiny Dusk Mane Necrozma, all you require is a Shiny Necrozma and a regular Solgaleo.

Shiny Dusk Mane Necrozma is very different, as its yellowish Solgaleo body changes to a pale pink and the black Necrozma details turn deep blue.
