Alolan Marowak is receiving its own raid day in Pokémon Go, just in time for Halloween. The raid day will be happening on Saturday, October 31 from 11 AM to 5 PM in your time zone. Trainers will have the opportunity to find plenty of Alolan Marowaks, for those six hours, these Pokémon will overtake various Gyms all over the world.
For those who battle and capture Alolan Marowak during the raid day, it will know the exclusive charge move shadow bone. Alolan Marowak does not traditionally learn this move, and it’s a good choice. We’ve broken down how it fares in the Pokémon’s overall moveset, and if you want another reliable Pokémon to use in the Great League, an Alolan Marowak that knows shadow bone is a great choice.
If you want to battle it, and you’re level 30, you can potentially solo the Pokémon during its raid day. Alolan Marowak is a Dark and Fire-type Pokémon, making it weak to Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock, and Water-type attacks. The best Pokémon you want to use against it include Gengar, Darkrai, Swampert, Rhyperior, Gyarados, Rampardos, Kingler, and several other choices.
Ahead of the release, Niantic is providing all trainers with a free box that contains five raid passes, and three remote raid passes. You don’t have to use these items for the event, and they are given to everyone. You only have six hours to capture this Pokémon in your timezone, so don’t miss out if you want to add it an Alolan Marowak to your collection that knows shadow bone.
How transporter energy works and how to get it in Pokémon Go
Use energy to transport Pokémon onto the Home servers.
When Pokémon Go hooks up with Pokémon Home, trainers will be able to transfer almost all of the Pokémon they’ve captured from their mobile game to their online boxes. There are a few restrictions, such as not being able to trade any shadow Pokémon, ones with costumes, or any Mega-Evolved Pokémon. Their other limitation will be transporter energy to power the transporter device, and you probably need to use a Pokémon Home Transporter Poké Ball. The energy is a meter that all Pokémon Go accounts have, and it’s what you use to power the transporter to transfer your Pokémon.
We’ve learned so far about the transporter energy from the PokéMiners group who datamined the information on October 29. While this remains speculation, we do know you need this energy to power the transporter.
Without energy, you have to wait to earn more. There will be two ways to acquire energy. The first, and it’s a method many players in Pokémon Go will use, merely wait until energy returns to them. Given the breakdown information, it likely takes around 24 hours for players to regain all of their energy. The energy you need to use to send Pokémon through the transporter, we think, varies on the type of Pokémon, what level it is, and if it’s a legendary or mythical one. The rarer and stronger Pokémon likely require more energy.
The alternative is for players to spend money in the Pokémon Go store to purchase more energy to send several waves of Pokémon through the transporter. It’s a way for players to choose to send as many as they want to their online boxes rather than waiting for the energy to recharge.
We’ll have to wait and see how much energy the varying Pokémon require. Don’t expect to upload your entire PokéDex to the Home servers, but you can send several through when it releases.
