There are more Pokémon than you can catch in Pokémon Go, and many of them have the opportunity to be a brilliant version. While you won't always catch a bright Pokémon, there are several ways to meet it. Absol has a brilliant version, but you won't always get one for completing raids. Here's what you need to know if you manage to catch a bright Absol from a three-star raid in Pokémon Go.



We can confirm that after finding Absol in a three-star raid and defeating him, there is a chance you may encounter a brilliant version. If you can't find Absol in the wild or find a conventional way to catch him, attempting to defeat him in a raid is always a viable option. The downside is that you'll need to use a Raid Pass to do this, and sometimes these are best saved for the Legendary Pokémon you can catch, depending on which ones are the rotation.

Completing a three-star raid requires some work. You may be able to do it alone if you have an ideal team to defeat Absol. Otherwise, you may want to work with a friend to beat him and add him to your collection. Unfortunately, there is no good way to increase your chances of encountering a bright Absol in these raids.
