There are numerous ways to encounter and get unique and legendary monsters in Pokemon GO. Getting Solgaleo and Lunala is a challenge; players must undergo tedious gameplay to get these monsters. Players cannot directly get a Solgaleo or Lunala; they must first acquire a Cosmog and later evolve it.
Pokemon GO players can get the legendary Cosmog by completing Special Research quests: A Cosmic Companion and Starry Skies. To obtain a Cosmog, one needs to complete Part 1 of A Cosmic Companion or the entire Starry Skies Special Research. Cosmog debuted on September 1, 2022, at 10 AM local time via A Cosmic Companion Special Research. The game offered another opportunity to get Cosmog through the Starry Skies Special Research during the Solstice Horizons Event on June 16, 2023, at 10 AM local time.

Pokemon GO: How To Get Solgaleo And Lunala
Once players complete the Pokemon GO Special Research quests and get their hands on a Cosmog, they need to evolve it into a Cosmoem at the cost of 25 Candy. After getting a Cosmoem, they can either evolve it into a Solgaleo or a Lunala. The evolution process requires lots of Cosmog Candy, and it is tough to get the required amount since Cosmog is a rare Pokemon. Completing A Cosmic Companion Special Research quest is the fastest way to get some Cosmog Candy.
How To Get Solgaleo In Pokemon GO
Pokemon GO trainers with Cosmoem need to farm some more Cosmog Candy to evolve it into a Solgaleo. Along with the Candy requirement, another condition exists to evolve Cosmoem into a Solgaleo successfully. One must have 100 Cosmog Candy and initiate the evolution process during the Daytime to get Solgaleo.
How To Get Lunala In Pokemon GO
Much like Solgaleo, certain conditions exist to evolve Cosmoem into a Lunala successfully. The Pokemon GO evolution cost is 100 Cosmog Candy, and one must initiate the evolution process during the Nighttime to get Lunala.

Pokemon GO: Can Solgaleo And Lunala Be Shiny?
Although players can obtain Cosmog and evolve it into Cosmoem and later into a Solgaleo or a Lunala, the same cannot be said about their Shiny variants. Shiny Solgaleo and Shiny Lunala are currently unavailable in Pokemon GO since the developers at Niantic have yet to debut the Shiny Cosmog family.
Pokemon GO developers typically introduce a Pokemon’s Standard and Shiny variants at separate times. As the Standard variants were added a year ago, Shiny Solgaleo and Shiny Lunala may be released in future events.
After a test run via an April Fools’ joke on Google Maps, Pokemon GO was released to the public in the summer of 2016. The AR mobile app saw unparalleled success and continues to be one of the largest mobile games in the world, pulling in billions for developer Niantic.
