Pokemon Go Tyranitar Evolution

Tyranitar or any of its pre-evolved variants are exceedingly rare to come across in the wild. Even Larvitars are incredibly difficult to come across in the wild. According to many players' observations, you can find them in parks when the weather improves. Collecting larvitars and then having enough candy to develop them into Tyranitar is your best bet.

10km eggs will hatch into larvitars. This is not something that can be monitored, but it is one way to go about it. Tyranitar is a level 4 raid boss, and raids are the most popular way to capture him. If you can gather enough people and beat the raid leader, you might be able to get a decent IV Tyranitar. When you come across a larvitar, use pinap berry and an Ultra Ball.
