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

This week’s Featured Hour is all about Electrified Pokémon, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to catch a Shiny Blitzle in Pokémon Go.

While Blitzle and its evolved form, Zebstrika, don’t have much use in Pokémon Go and are mediocre at best in Go Battle League, it’s a great opportunity to look for the elusive 100% IV Blitzle, which is a spawn quite uncommon. .

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.

Blitzle IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

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


“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 4* Pokédex, 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 CP at which a Perfect Blitzle will spawn.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 756 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP) – 819 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 Zebstrika good at PvP?

    While not strictly evil, Zebstrika is nothing to write home about. It is one of the top 15 Electric-type Pokémon in the Great League, where it arguably performs best.


    This shouldn’t be a big surprise: it’s the monoelectric type and also very glassy. Additionally, the moves we recommend are quite technical, meaning they come with a bit of a learning curve. This would be fine if the reward was there, but as mentioned, it’s not even in the top 10 of its kind.

    These recommended moves are Spark, Wild Charge, and Flame Charge as the second charged move. While this can be a very spammy combo, with Flame Charge gaining enough momentum to apply some good shield pressure thanks to a guaranteed attack boost every time you use it, Wild Charge comes with a guaranteed 2-stage defense drop. One step forward, as they say…

    So how does this compare in terms of matchups? In Great League he beats Azumarill, Sableye, Noctowl, Medicham and Lanturn, which is respectable; however, you can expect very quick losses to Trevenant, Bastiodon, Stunfisk, Registeel, and Venusaur; At best, this is a fairly mixed situation.

    Zebstrika is less of a glass cannon in Ultra League, thanks to a perfect one being level 48.5 with CP 2500, meaning you get a nice stat boost in much of the competition. However, that’s a lot of Stardust and XL Candy for what is ultimately, again, a mediocre Pokémon. This time, you will be able to defeat Registeel, along with Tapu Fini, Talonflame, Escavalier and Walrein; however, you lose to Swampert (obviously), Giratina, Cresselia, Trevenant, and Alolan Muk. Again, a mix of things, but given the resources needed to achieve this, they are better spent elsewhere.

    Lastly, we have the Master League; You can guess where it’s going, we’re sure. A perfect 15/15/15 Zebstrika caps out at CP 2745 at level 50, which is pretty horrible. Instead of going over all the pros and cons, let’s say this: Gyarados, which is twice weak to Electric as a Water/Flying-type, will destroy Zebstrika in a matter of seconds.

    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 Blitzle in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, there is a shiny Blitzle in Pokémon Go and it’s actually pretty cool!

    Everything in Blitzle’s evolution line is electric. (Image credit:

    Shiny Blitzle and Shiny Zebstrika were released in September 2021, around the Fashion Week event, with the former being released as a shiny disguised Pokémon that couldn’t evolve, leading to the latter being released right after the event.

    What does the shiny Blitzle look like?

    Shiny Blitzle changes his black fur to a cool navy blue and changes his blue highlights (inner ear) to green. Her evolution, Shiny Zebstrika, does the same, although the ears are a little more noticeable!

    Other things you should know about Blitzle 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.

    The smartest way to maximize the bonus here 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 to get double the candies!

    It’s also good to note that, thanks to Blitzle being an Electric-type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medal.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: 6 pm to 7 pm (local time); Don’t worry if you can’t participate in this week’s event. Featured hours for February have yet to be announced, but we’ll keep you posted once we know more!

    Good luck finding a perfect shiny Blitzle!
