Chimchar is a fire type starter Pokemon, which can be evolved into Monferno and Infernape. The Pokemon can be found easily in the Pokemon universe due to the Pokemon 5th-anniversary event. Starter Pokemons like Chimchar are not only easy to catch but evolve as well. Keep reading this article to know more about how to catch Chimchar in Pokemon Go and where to find Chimchar in Pokemon Go.
Catching a Chimchar is relatively easy. A player might feed the Pokemon with Golden Razz Berry before throwing a Pokeball at it. The golden razz berries increase a trainer's chance of capturing Chimchar in the wild. However, locating Chimchar might cause more problems in the game than catching it. In the subhead given below, readers will know about where to capture a Chimchar and what needs to be done in order to spawn a Chimchar.
Installing lures at Pokestop will attract a variety of Pokemons, including Chimchar
There are two ways and corresponding locations to catch Chimchar is Pokemon Go. For the first method, players will have to use lures that can be purchased directly from Pokemon Go's in-game store or received as rewards for completing certain research tasks. Installing a lure at a PokeStop will attract Chimchar to the PokeStop and it can then be captured by a player. However, lures also attract other Pokemons including Piplup, Chespin, Fennekin, Cyndaquil and Todolite. During the 5th anniversary Pokemon Go event, a lure will last up to one hour, giving players enough time to capture a Chimchar.
Completing field research tasks might spawn a Chimchar
The second way of catching Chimchar in Pokemon Go is by competing in a specific event field research task which is available at PokeStop. However, a player might have to spin multiple PokeStops before the specific task for obtaining a Chimchar shows up. The event field research task required is called 'Make five great throws'. After completing the task, the players will get a chance to encounter one of the following Pokemon: Piplup, Turtwig or Chimchar. However, the selection of Pokemon for the encounter is not in the hands of a player, and hence a player might have to complete multiple tasks to encounter Chimchar.
Chimchar is the first Pokemon in the Chimchar evolution line. Evolving Chimchar to Monferno costs 25 candies while evolving Monferno to Infernape costs 100 candies. Both Monferno and Infernape are dual-type fire and fighting Pokemon. If players are fortunate enough, they might find a Shiny Chimchar in the wild. A Shiny Chimchar has bright-red coloured fur and can be fed Pinap Berries to increase the chances of catching it. Sunny weather might increase the chance of an encounter with Shiny Chimchar.
