Galarian Yamask has joined the Galarian Pokemon lineup that you can now find in Pokémon Go. If you catch Galarian Yamask , you can evolve into Runerigus , a Gen 8 Pokémon , not Cofagrigus, which is where the usual Gen 5 Yamasks evolve.
Below you will learn how to capture and evolve Galarian Yamask in Pokemon Go, so that you can continue to fill in the Gen 8 section of your Pokédex.
Galarian Yamask and Runerigus
Galarian Yamask first appeared in Pokemon Sword and Shield as one of the 14 variants of the original Galar, namely Pokémon from the previous generation that had different displays and types in the Galar region.
The regional variant first appeared in Gen 7 with the Pokémon Alolan.
Unlike Yamask Gen 5 in general, Galarian Yamask is a ground and ghost-type Pokémon. It also evolves into Gen 8 Pokémon Runerigus, not Cofagrigus.
Runerigus is also a ground and ghost type Pokémon that appears to be created from abandoned runestones.
How to catch the Galarian Yamask
The easiest way to catch Galarian Yanmask in Pokémon Go is to complete the Special Request quest, A Spooky Message Unmasked .
Thus, you will meet Galarian Yamask, who you can have as a Buddy to collect more Yamask Candies if needed and, eventually, evolve into Runerigus.
It’s important to note that A Spooky Message Unmasked was released as part of the Halloween 2020 event, so, if you didn’t sign in to Pokémon Go during this event or created your account afterward, there is a chance that you won’t be able to access it.
How to evolve Yamask Galarians into Runerigus
After you catch Galarian Yamask in Pokémon Go, you will most likely want to evolve into Runerigus. If you’ve played Pokémon Sword or Shield (or both) then you’ll find that this can be a pretty interesting process and Pokémon Go is no different.
In order to evolve Yamask Galarian into Runerigus, you need 50 Yasmask Candies and compete in 10 raids.

Meeting the raid requirements, depending on whether you wish to purchase an additional raid pass, can take anywhere from 5 to 10 days.
However, you can buy additional raid tickets using PokéCoin or by completing certain Special Research quests. It’s also important to remember that you can purchase Remote Raid tickets, which will allow your A4 to compete in raids from the comfort of your own home.
We recommend targeting one-star attacks, as this will ensure easy wins, enabling you to achieve your Runerigus goals.
