To do so, you need Darmanitan (Galarian Zen form), Kingler,  Darmanitan (Galarian Standard form), Kyogre, and Roserade in your Pokemon team. The second way is to use the old method of first feeding Trapinch with a golden razzberry and then throwing a curveball throw when you encounter Trapinch in the wild.
