The first official Pokémon VGC tournament in Korea is set to kick off later this month with a special surprise. A distribution code for Shiny Amoonguss code will be revealed during the Trainers Cup Finals on August 9. This Pokémon is based on the one used by Baik Jongyoon during the 2019 Pokémon World Championships. This is a global Mystery Gift event and will be available for only two days for all Pokémon Sword and Shield players.
The Shiny Amoonguss on offer is a level 50 Pokémon and will be made available via a special code on the official Pokémon Korea site. It is equipped with the moves Spore, Clear Smog, Rage Powder and Protect. Our buddy Sejun will be among the commentators for the event so be sure to tune in!
Amoonguss is probably the most dangerous Pokémon to be introduced into the metagame because of its strong support moves, like Rage Powder to protect its partner and Spore to put foes asleep. Receiving support from Max Moves like Max Airstream could make Amoonguss even more threatening because it can now more feasibly be trained in Speed while holding Focus Sash as an item. However, Amoonguss is also known to be helpful against Trick Room teams due to its low natural Speed and good defensive stats.
