The Psychic-type Munna will be featured during the upcoming Pokemon Go Slumbering Sands event, so here’s how to catch this creature from the Unova region, and why not, its Shiny version.

Munna, the pink ball from Gen 5, might seem like a lovely creature, but this Pokemon is known for eating both people’s and Pokemon’s dreams.

Now, it will be featured during the Slumbering Sands event alongside fellow sleepers like Komala, Drowzee, and the Slakoth family. So, if you’re looking to add this terrifying creature to your roster, here’s how to do so.


How to get Munna in Pokemon Go

Munna has been part of Pokemon Go since it debuted in 2021 during the Valentine’s Day event, and has been popping in and out of the game in different ways. However, the only way players can find Munna in the game currently is as a wild encounter.

Luckily for trainers still missing this cute dream eater, Munna will be featured during the upcoming Slumbering Sands event as part of the Shared Skies season celebrations. From Friday, June 7, 2024, until Wednesday, June 12, 2024, Munna will spawn in the wild more often, and players might even find its Shiny version.

Previously, Munna hatched from 2 km, 5 km, and 7 km Eggs. It also appeared as a Tier 1 Raid Boss, and was rewarded for completing Field Research Tasks like “Win a raid” or Special/Timed Research Tasks such as “A Radiant Reunion – 5th part: Take a Snapshot”.

Can Munna be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Munna can be Shiny in Pokemon Go, as this special variation was added to the game at the start of the Pokemon Go Fest 2022 Finale, and trainers can recognize it thanks to its bright yellow body and green flower prints.

Even though Shiny Munna will have increased odds during the event, finding it will be tough, as players cannot use a special method or item to ensure an encounter.

How to evolve Munna into Musharna in Pokemon Go

As a two-member family, Munna’s evolution is quite straightforward, as there’s only one step, but it requires a special item.

To evolve Munna into Musharna, you must feed it 50 Munna Candy and give it a Unova Stone.

Players can find Unova Stones by claiming Research Breakthrough rewards or defeating Team GO Rocket Leaders: Giovanni, Arlo, Sierra, or Cliff.

In case you’re low on Candy, you can use Pinap Berries during the encounters to duplicate the amount of Candy you get per catch or send your extra Munna to Professor Willow. You can also set it as your Buddy and take it for a walk.
