Lunupine can be obtained by trading with other users, breeding with a parent of the Lunupine Line, or from the Tournament Shop.
Lunupine Eggs can be bought from the Tournament Shop using Tournament Tokens. After the first egg is purchased, additional eggs can be purchased for 80 Gold Poké. They currently cost 1 Lazuli Token to unlock.
The Hallowe'en 2015 Event was experimental, to determine how to tweak the system for future similar events. The Event consisted of two distinct sub-events. During the early stage of the Event, users would occasionally have the screen darken, and a small "flashlight" effect be attached to their mouse's movement. Users then needed to locate a small silhouette shrouded in the darkness, and either mouse over it, or click it, in order to scare it away. After clicking on the silhouette enough, an animation played every time it was clicked, flashing the screen red and having the silhouette open its mouth as to attack. Following this, a debuff was applied to the user's account called "Bleeding," lasting ten minutes and causing all Interaction Points received to be decreased during the time limit. Eventually the silhouette stopped appearing altogether, and soon afterwards the Mass-Click Weekend was announced, which included a second target of 3,333 Interactions, with a mystery prize. Users who completed the 3,333 Interactions during the weekend received a certain item, which could be used to obtain a Lunupine egg. Its Mega Stone was given as a reward to any individual user with at least 12,345 interactions during the event weekend. The method for obtaining Lunupine from this Event is outlined above.
The Lunupinite Q was also the seventeenth Mega Stone released as part of the Mega Lookback event on the 17th of July 2017. The special code could be retrieved from the PokéFarm Twitter or Facebook pages from the 17th of July 2017 to the 31st of January 2018.
- Lunupine was originally featured on PokéFarm 1 and was released on the 20th of July 2011.
- Mega Lunupine did not originally exist since Mega Evolutions did not yet exist.
- Lunupine's PF1 Pokedex Description was: "Lunupine are almost never seen in the wild, except when the full moon shines brightly in the night sky."
- Before the 20th of August 2016, Lunupine was obtainable by going to the Contest Hall with a Perfect Pecha Berry Key Item in the user's inventory. Upon opening the page, a silhouette of a Pokémon would be visible in the top right corner of the page. Clicking on the silhouette would give the user an option to leave, or to hand the Perfect Pecha Berry to the Pokémon. Giving the Perfect Pecha Berry to the Pokémon would remove it from the user's inventory, and a Lunupine egg would be given to the user.
