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

This week’s Featured Hour features the Pokémon Ruffian. Wait, really? Well, I guess the first thing we’re going to learn today is that Corphish is the Rogue Pokémon. We could have sworn it would be Pancham, Scrafty… Something based on Darkness… Ah well, let’s move on: this is the perfect opportunity to catch a Corphish in Pokémon Go.

Corphish is a relatively boring Pokémon, but its evolution Crawdaunt is a reasonable choice in the world of Pokémon Go thanks to its prowess in Go Battle League. It’s by no means the best in its class, but it’s an interesting option nonetheless. What is perhaps more exciting is the fact that this Featured Hour is a bit different, focusing on not one, but five Pokémon. You can get a full rundown of these on the Water Fest Spotlight Hour page.

This week’s Spotlight also comes with a triple catch XP bonus, the first seen in a Spotlight and something usually reserved for Community Day, so if you’re looking to rack up XP quickly, this is the event! for you!

Corphish IV Stats 100% Perfect in Pokémon Go

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


“Perfect” means two things in Pokémon Go, depending on how you plan to use a given Pokémon. 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 three stats, a perfect Pokémon IV is usually just the best version of itself in the Master League.

Of course, you can’t see a Pokémon’s IV without catching it first, but with a little research beforehand, you can quickly spot a perfect Corphish based on CP alone.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1055 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP) – 1143 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.

    The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! He has brought the Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest, which offers you the chance to win another Master Ball. There’s also a new season of Go Battle League to participate in. 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 Crawdaunt good at PvP?

    Crawdaunt is an interesting option in Go Battle League, although not necessarily a good one. At first glance, it pales against the competition as the best Water or Dark type, but when it comes to Water/Dark type, it is currently best in class against Greninja and Sharpedo. That said, with the next Froakie Community Day expected in 2023, this may change soon.


    By running Snarl, Night Slash, and Crabhammer, we have a fast-charging spam Pokémon that has a 12.5% ​​chance to greatly increase its own attack (up to two stages). If luck is on your side, things can get out of control very quickly for your opponent. The flip side is that despite all this shield pressure you’re applying, Crawdaunt is a glass cannon and can break very easily.

    Starting with Great League, we have very quick wins over Trevenant, Swampert, and Froslass, with slightly slower wins against Sableye and Shadow Swampert. Losses, however, will come from Medicham, Lanturn, Noctowl, Alolan Ninetails, and Galarian Stunfisk.

    In Ultra League, XL Crawdaunt fares significantly better, thanks to the fact that he can reach level 46 and still be eligible. This translates into victories against Talonflame, Jellicent, Giratina, Charizard, and Cresselia. Meanwhile, losses will come from Tapu Fini, Walrein, Swampert, Galarian Stunfisk and, on the other hand, Trevenant.

    Master League is clearly not an ideal battleground for Crawdaunt, thanks to its CP capped at 2797. However, it does have some notable wins against Victini, Metagross, Shadow Moltres, and both Shadow and regular Mewtwo. However, you will lose to Dialga, Garchomp, Zacian, Lugia, and Giratina.

    Is there a shiny Corphish in Pokémon Go?

    Yeah! Shiny Corphish launched in May 2022 as part of Safari Zone Seville!

    What does shiny Corphish look like?

    As you can see below, the shiny Corphish is pretty decent. The gloss changes the orange-red shell to a pretty shade of purple. The underside is a slightly pale straw yellow, which really helps bring out the color of the shell.

    Shiny Crawdaunt, however, is just bad. He trades his deep red for a burnt orange color, which is both lazy and not leaning towards new writing at all. It also changes its blue stripes to purple, but it’s not enough to shave off an otherwise bad shine.
