Best Location to Catch Vibrava and Dragonair

Search for water locations or parks near water locations. There are higher chances of encountering Vibrava and Dragonair in water areas.

Also, try to search with parks with multiple Pokestops available.

Use Incense

An encounter with either Vibrava or Dragonair can be sped up if you use incense during the process. Once you reach the water park location or a park with multiple Pokestops, try to use as many lures as possible and then activate Incense. Once you have activated the Incense, start walking between them and be ready for a chance of catching the Pokemon.

Lures won’t work here.

You might think that you can easily progress in the Pokémon Go Dragonspiral Descent Collection Challenge by evolving these Pokemon. It is important to remember that to evolve either Dratinin into Dragonair or Trapinch into Vibrava will not count as a catch.

Play the Game as Much as Possible Until the Event Ends
