How To Get Darmanitan Zen Mode Pokemon Go (2022)

The Pokemon were introduced as part of the Pokemon GO Lunar New Year event. Players can hatch Darumaka from 7 km Eggs during the event, which runs from now until February 3.

Darmanitan will sit comfortably among the best fire-type attackers in the game. It’s got a respectable attack stat with fantastic moves to use. Fire Fang is comparable to Fire Spin seen on most top tier fire-type attackers and Overheat is pretty much the go-to move for fire-type Charge attacks. Darmanitan also has access to a variety of other Charge Moves for additional coverage. Focus Blast, while not the best fighting-type Charge Move, will help Darmanitan deal with rock-types that would otherwise counter it. However, it’s defense stat is subpar and undermines its excellent stamina. The crown for best fire-type attacker still goes to Chandelure which has slightly more attack and access to Shadow Ball.

In the core Pokemon games, Darmanitan has a hidden ability that allows it to change into a different form known as Zen mode. If its HP gets below 50%, then Darmanitan becomes fire- and psychic-type and has its stats change. However, according to players who have looked at the data of the game, Zen Darmanitan hasn’t been added to the game yet.

During the Lunar New Year event, certain Pokemon with the color red will see increased encounter rates in the wild. In addition, gifts will occasionally award Rare Candies during the event, according to Niantic. Both the chance of becoming Lucky Friends and getting a Lucky Pokemon through a trade will increase during the event.

But that’s not all. On February 2 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, Minccino and its evolution Cinccino will be added to the game as part of a special Limited Research event. During that time, you can complete Field Research tasks to encounter Minccino. You can also hatch Minccino from 5 km Eggs. Shiny Minccino will also be added to the game. In addition, Rattata, Raticate, Pikachu, Sandshrew, Nidoran (male), Nidoran (female), Sentret, Marill, Zigzagoon, Plusle, Minun, Bidoof and Patrat will receive increased encounter rates in the wild during the event.
