Spiritomb can be caught in the Crown Tundra DLC. It requires you to speak to 32 trainers online. However, I don't have a Nintendo Online account. Given this, is it possible to encounter Spiritomb by speaking to trainers online or by another method (without trading or transferring from Pokemon Home)?

    You could always take advantage of the 7 day free trail. Granite this does require you to put in card information, but you can always turn off auto-renewal before the trial ends Nov 30, 2020 at 13:59

1 Answer 1


As mentioned in the question, encountering Spiritomb requires talking to 32 trainers online. You can't encounter Spiritomb without talking to trainers online, which requires a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

    You could do it by using local network players, theoretically

  • I don't think players in local network appear in your game the same way online players do, but I haven't checked. Nov 30, 2020 at 14:12
  • I don't know for sure either, but it was proposed on Reddit

  • The reddit method seems to suggest that it is possible with local players - this seems likely to work although it's based on speculation
