How to catch Bombirder in Pokemon Go

Right now, it seems the only way to get Bombirdier in Pokemon Go is to first defeat it in a Raid Battle. Once you’ve successfully done this, you’ll be given a limited amount of Premier Balls to attempt to capture it. Remember to use Pinap Berries to boost your chances!

Bombirdier will be appearing in 3-Star Raids during the Ultra Unlock: Paldea event, which runs in the game from September 10 to September 15, 2023. It’s unknown how frequently it will appear once this event is over, so definitely catch one now if you can.

Bombirdier has one of the game’s more subtle Shiny variants, with the main difference being a dark grey beak and legs as opposed to the traditional Bombirdier’s red beak and legs.

As with any Shiny Pokemon, it’s going to be very difficult to encounter a Shiny Bombirdier. You’ll need a mix of luck and patience (and probably lots of Raid Passes!) if you’re determined to catch one.
