Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Qwilfish, and Hisuian Sneasel Debut in Pokémon GO’s Hisuian Discoveries Event

Celebrate the stunning Hisui region with new Pokémon debuts, a Hisui-inspired cup, and special event bonuses.

Each region of the Pokémon world offers boundless opportunity for exploration and discovery. Pokémon GO Trainers have the opportunity to embrace this spirit of wonder and courage with the Hisuian Discoveries event, which runs through Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time. During the event, Hisuian regional variants of Growlithe, Qwilfish, and Sneasel will make their Pokémon GO debuts. And it’s not just Hisuian Growlithe that’s rocking a dual type—all three have dual types that differ from their non-Hisuian counterparts!

Trainers can partner with these Pokémon to take on the Hisui Cup in the GO Battle League. Competitors are limited to Pokémon with a CP of 1,500 or less who were first discovered in the Hisui region or have a Pokédex number from #387 to #493. Battling other Trainers is the perfect opportunity to get to know your new Pokémon! And if you’re looking for inspiration to catch Pokémon you can battle with in the Hisui Cup, a Collection Challenge offers the perfect opportunity. Catch all the Pokémon in the challenge to receive rewards that include XP, Stardust, and an Incubator.

Hisuian Braviary will also be making its Pokémon GO debut during Hisuian Discoveries Raid Day. On Sunday, July 31, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, Unown S, Panpour, and Braviary will appear in raids. Trainers can enjoy Raid Day event bonuses, such as an increased chance of obtaining Rare Candy XL from in-person Raid Battles, up to five free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs during the event (and up to two hours afterward!), and 50 percent more XP for winning Raid Battles.
