Necrozma, the Prism Pokemon from the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, can now have alternate forms in Pokemon GO. The powerful Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma emerge by fusing Necrozma with the Legendary Pokemons: Solgaleo, the Sunne Pokemon, or Lunala, the Moone Pokemon. Trainers can perform these fusions for the first time at GO Fest 2024.

The Shiny version of Necrozma is available but only to ticketholders during the in-person GO Fest 2024 events. Players who did not purchase tickets will have to wait until GO Fest Global to encounter a Shiny Necrozma in 5-star Raids. Remote pass users can't encounter a Shiny variant of Necrozma.
