Bellsprout 100% perfect IV stats, shiny Bellsprout in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is all about the Flower Pokémon, which incredibly means we’re here to catch a shiny Bellsprout in Pokémon Go.

Bellsprout, Weepinbell, and their final evolution Victreebel lack flowers, so we’re not sure where that categorization came from. Still, we’re not here to see Vorthos, which is actually a juvenile carnivorous plant (not a flower); We’re here to find out if you’re any good at Pokemon Go, from Raid Battles to the Go Battle League. If you’re still looking for a perfect 100% Bellsprout IV, this spotlight hour, for once, isn’t the perfect time to go looking for it, but it is the perfect time to grind candy!

As usual, catching as many Pokémon as possible is the plan for this week’s Spotlight, although the main attraction really is the opportunity to maximize the double candy transfer bonus that runs alongside the event. Remember, taking the time to clean out your storage makes it easier to catch more Pokémon in the long run.

Bellsprout IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Bellsprout with perfect IV stats.

Bell bud.

“Perfect,” of course, means two things in Pokémon Go. First, there’s the max build, 100% IV, which is the 15/15/15 you’re looking for for your Pokédex 4*, raids, and Master League. However, because of how CP is calculated using these three stats, a perfect Pokémon IV is usually just the best version of itself in Master League, raids, and Go Rocket battles.

Of course, you can’t see a Pokémon’s IV without catching it first, so it’s helpful to know the CPs at which a Perfect Bellsprout will appear.

If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs to get a perfect 15/15/15 Bellsprout:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 886 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP) – 959 CP
  • The wild CP value aligns with your trainer level until you reach level 30, and since the majority of the player base is now above this level, we’ve kept these values ​​for the sake of simplicity. However, these values ​​will be different if you are currently below level 30.

    Is Victreebel good at PvP?

    Victreebel is solid in Grand League, a drag in Master League, and a nasty raid attacker. But this comes with the big caveat that Shadow Victreebel is the one you want to run, and you can only get it with a Super Rocket Radar, since it’s the Pokémon you get from defeating the Decoy Grunts.


    As with most glass cannons, we want to lean towards the glass with the Shadow version, hitting harder as a result. He’s here for a good time, not for a long time.

    Running Razor Leaf, Leaf Blade, and Acid Spray, this Grass/Poison-type has decent fast-moving pressure and reasonable standing in the Big League. However, Razor Leaf is painfully slow at generating energy, meaning that no matter how spammed Leaf Blade is on other Pokémon, you’re at great risk of being left behind here.

    In Great League, you beat anything that’s slightly wet besides Sableye, which is nice to know. However, you lose to Noctowl, Trevenant, Galarian Stunfisk, Medicham, and Umbreon. In short, it’s just a worse Venusaur – a Pokemon that isn’t a glass cannon and is a lot more spammy.

    Victreebel finds itself in a similar position in Ultra League, where its glassiness is less of an issue, but the competition becomes much stronger. You still beat Water-types, along with Walrein and Cresselia. However, you lose to Charizard, Giratina, Trevenant, Cobalion, and Obstagoon.

    Master League, however, is a different story: with a maximum CP of 2748, your glassy Victreebel will shatter against a tough as a feather. Don’t run Victreebel in Master League.

    The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! Its first event is A Paldean Adventure, which sees the true launch of Gen 9 and the special research mission A Paldean Adventure. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

    Is there a shiny Bellsprout in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, as with all Kanton Pokémon, there is a Shiny Bellsprout in Pokémon Go!

    Everything in Bellsprout’s evolution line is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon. (Image credit:

    Shiny Bellsprout launched in July 2020, as part of the annual summer event.

    What does shiny Bellsprout look like?

    Shiny Bellsprout is pretty obvious: it changes its green leaves for an autumnal yellow! Matching the bulb that forms its head, this is quite an attractive glow!

    Shiny Weepinbell skips winter for spring, opting for a greenish tint instead of yellow, pink lips instead of red, and a pair of lighter green leaves. This is a nice nod to the fact that the Pokémon is still growing and has yet to evolve into the shiny Victreebel.

    That said, the brilliant Victreebel absolutely goes for it taking the green body of the brilliant Weepinbell and the autumnal leaves of the brilliant Bellsprout. For no apparent reason, he changes the red lips to blue, creating a completely confusing glow.

    Other Things to Know About Bellsprout Spotlight Hour

    Spotlight Hour always comes with a bonus you can take advantage of, and this week it’s a double transfer sweet treat. As always, this runs throughout the hour and affects more than just the Pokémon in the spotlight.

    This is a very important advantage to take full advantage of, especially for lower level trainers looking to complete their Pokédex. The smartest way to maximize this is to have a Tag in your Pokémon storage just for this purpose. We recommend creating one called ‘Transfer’, where you can place the Pokémon you don’t want or need. Instead of transferring them as you detect them, hold them for events like these, when you can transfer them in bulk. All those candies add up very quickly and are especially useful when transferring something like a Mewtwo for double candy or after a big event like Hoenn Tour!

    It’s also good to note that, thanks to Bellsprout being a Grass/Poison type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medal.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week we’ll see Skorupi take center stage with double Evolution XP!

    Good luck finding a perfect shiny Bellsprout!
