There are multiple Pokémon appearing in Pokémon Go during each main event. These events are also a way to bring out bright versions of a previously released Pokémon, increasing the hype for a particular character. For those looking for Pokémon from Galar, what are the chances of catching the brilliant version of a Galar Darumaka?
The brilliant version for Galarian Darumaka has not yet been released. No matter how many Galarian versions of this Pokémon you find in the wild, hatch from eggs or fight in raids, you won't encounter a brilliant version. This contrasts with the original Fire-type version of Darumaka which has a glossy version.
The brilliant version for the regular Darumaka was released on July 6, during the start of the celebrations for the fifth anniversary of Pokémon Go. The version of Galarian Darumaka will probably happen later in 2021, or we could find it during the first part of 2022. We won't know until Niantic accepts the release or provides hard evidence.
For now, only the regular version of Darumaka has a glossy version. Galarian Darumaka's version will be released at a later time. Just as the Fire-type Darumaka version was released, a brilliant Galar Darumaka will be released during a larger event.
