Secondly, even in the absence of research tasks, upon catching an Alpha Pokémon, you can receive increased rewards for finishing a survey.

Also, every time you catch or battle an Alpha Pokémon, this boosts your stats as you will level up👍.

There are two ways to catch an Alpha Pokémon: battle the Pokémon or bait it. To battle the Alpha Pokémon, you can leverage your team to fight it. However, be careful who you sacrifice first to fight the Alpha, as it is guaranteed the Alpha will destroy them.

Also, leverage Poké balls during the fight, such as weighted balls💪. Battling the Alpha is hard since it could decimate your entire team😨.

Alternatively, you can bait the Alpha Pokémon using its favorite treats to distract them and execute a back strike.

It is important to note that there are two kinds of Alpha Pokémon categorized based on whether they respawn after their capture or defeat: these are tabulated below:

Kind of Alpha Pokémon:


Fixed Alpha Pokémon

They respawn in the same area consistently even after the player captured or defeated it in battle.

Random Alpha Pokémon

They appear at random.

How Hard is it to Catch Alpha Pokémon?

While it is possible to catch an Alpha Pokémon, it is difficult to do so successfully 😫. That is because they are almost always at much higher levels, meaning they are stronger and have mastered moves that most other species lack in.

Additionally, they have larger physiques than regular Pokémon and are always hostile 😡 with a scary red glow in their eyes.

If you are of a lower level than the Alpha, attacking them triggers their aggression toward you. They will keep fighting back without retreating unless under special circumstances.

Can I Catch Alpha Pokémon with Poké balls?

Yes, you can catch Alpha Pokémon with Poké balls. However, the essence of the Poké balls is to use them strategically to catch the Alpha Pokémon.

To guarantee a successful capture, use the weakest Pokémon in your team to battle the Alpha Pokémon on the first attempt.

Eventually, the Alpha gets weaker as their HP levels decline. Next, leverage a status effect and throw your most potent Poké ball.

Consequently, you will defeat the Alpha Pokémon and win the battle 😎.

Yes, you can catch an Alpha Pokémon without battling by baiting it 😏. First, ensure you know the Alpha Pokémon’s favorite food: berries, honey, or cakes.

Next, when you are close enough to the Alpha, crouch in the tall grass. While hidden, throw the preferred treat to the Alpha Pokémon. When the Alpha sees the treat, they will turn around and run toward it.

Expectedly, their back should be facing you: that is when you will aim a Poké ball toward the Alpha’s back and throw it (back strike). Consequently, you will successfully catch the Alpha Pokémon.
