How to Collect Gloom in Pokémon Go


Pokémon GO was a smash hit when it first came out, breaking all sorts of concurrent player records for the Pokémon franchise all over the world!

As is with every Pokémon game, players are tasked with searching for Pokémon to capture and collect, using them to battle other Pokémon, be it against the AI or against other players. The difference with Pokémon GO is that it utilizes the player’s phone GPS to find and capture Pokémon!

The game has been expanding its roster since its humble release with the original 151 Pokémon all the way to modern times. Pokémon got so popular that the original roster kept expanding till we got to eight whole generations of Pokémon!

Today we will be talking about one of the original 151 releases, Gloom, and how to acquire it in Pokémon GO!


Gloom is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in the original Gen-1 games of Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow. It evolves from Oddish when fed 25 candies, which then subsequently evolves into Vileplume when fed 100 more candies.

Gloom has been known to be quite the defensive Pokemon in older games. In Pokemon GO, the entire Oddish line of Oddish, Gloom, and Vileplume are even bigger powerhouses in their own right. Its best moveset consists of a combination of any moves along with:

  • Razor Leaf
  • Moonblast
  • Petal Dance
  • Sludge Bomb

With a max CP of 1,900, which is quite good for a second-stage Pokemon, Gloom can be caught in a few ways.

How to get Gloom

There are three primary methods of collecting Gloom:

  • Eggs (2km, 5km or 7km)
  • Raid boss battles
  • Evolving from Oddish

Each of these methods is equally potent. The eggs could be acquired as rewards for different events throughout Pokémon GO, while the Raid events are constantly changing, and being on the lookout for one involving Gloom should not be too difficult. If all else fails, evolving an Oddish into a Gloom isn’t too difficult at all!
