If everything goes according to plan, you will find your new shiny companion in the Pokémon box. Your shiny Amoonguss knows the moves Rage Powder, Protect, Spore and Clear Smog. It also has the Regenerator ability which will restore a little of its HP when it is withdrawn from battle. Additionally, Amoonguss will be holding the Focus Sash item. This is a great for taking on especially powerful opponents. A Pokémon holding Focus Sash cannot faint after a single hit, meaning they will keep one point of HP instead. This means you will get a second chance to heal up your partner and keep them in the fight.

While a regular Amoonguss is a bright red color, its shiny variant is purple. Unlike some shiny Pokémon, this one really stands out against its regular brethren. So, make sure you grab this purple companion for yourself before it is gone. After all, it’s never been easier to get one for yourself!
