Cosmog can be caught after you complete the game.

Step 1: Become the Pokémon League Champion

Before you can embark on your journey to capture Cosmog, you need to achieve the title of Pokémon League Champion in Alola. This entails completing the main story of the game, defeating the Elite Four, and reigning supreme as the region’s champion.

Step 2: Prepare Your Team

Ensure you have either Solgaleo or Lunala in your party. Depending on which version of the game you’re playing (Sun or Moon), you’ll have one of these Legendary Pokémon. You’ll need one of them to access Cosmog.

Step 3: Locate the Altar of Sunne or Altar of Moone

After becoming the champion, head to either the Altar of Sunne (for Pokémon Sun) or Altar of Moone (for Pokémon Moon). The time of day in your game affects the altar you should visit; go to the Altar of Sunne during the night and the Altar of Moone during the day.

Step 4: Activate the Portal

Approach the altar with Solgaleo or Lunala in your party. You’ll discover a portal that will transport you to an alternate world.

Step 5: Journey to the Lakes

In this alternate world, make your way to either the Lake of the Sunne (for Pokémon Sun players) or Lake of the Moone (for Pokémon Moon players). You’ll encounter the Legendary Pokémon from the other game version, creating a short cutscene.

Step 6: Welcome Cosmog to Your Team

Following the cutscene, Cosmog will appear. You’ll have the option to add this Nebula Pokémon to your team.

Step 7: Evolve Cosmog

Cosmog can evolve into Cosmoem starting at level 43. Then, at level 53, it can further evolve into either Solgaleo or Lunala, depending on your game version.

And there you have it—a guide to obtaining Cosmog in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. This unique Pokémon plays a significant role in the game’s narrative, and capturing it adds a powerful and captivating element to your adventure. Enjoy your journey with Cosmog!
