Druddigon is making its Pokemon Go debut during the Dragonspiral Descent event.


Pokemon Go's Season of Heritage continues this week with a new event called Dragonspiral Descent. The event runs until Dec. 12 and is inspired by Dragonspiral Tower, a location from the Pokemon Black and White games for the original Nintendo DS . Not only will there be special in-game bonuses and a new Collection Challenge throughout the event, but you'll also have your first chance to catch the dragon Pokemon Druddigon. Here's everything you need to know.


As part of the Dragonspiral Descent event, the dragon-type Pokemon Druddigon is making its Pokemon Go debut, marking your first opportunity to catch one in the game. You'll be able to encounter the dragon Pokemon in the wild and in raid battles, and there's also a chance you can encounter a Shiny Druddigon during the event.
