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

This week’s Spotlight is all about Pokémon Cold, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to catch a shiny Cubchoo in Pokémon Go.

While Cubchoo and its evolved form, Beartic, don’t have much use in Pokémon Go, as they’re pretty awful in both Go Battle League and raids, it’s a great opportunity to look for the elusive 100% IV Cubchoo, which is usually a spawn seasonal. .

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.

Cubchoo IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Cubchoo 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 CPs at which a perfect Cubchoo will spawn.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 916 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather-Boosted Wild Max CP: 992 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 Beartic good at PvP?

    No. No, it’s not. For such a scary-looking Pokémon, Beartic is horrible across the board. Simply put, he’s not bulky enough and has a very limited move set.


    This is disappointing, considering it already performs the best Ice-type fast move, Powder Snow. This fast charging move is seen in the likes of Mamoswine, Abomasnow, and Walrein. Next up is Ice Punch, which is okay, and Surf, which is confusing. It’s nice to have some cover, but it’s not a good enough move to make Beartic an interesting option in the Great League, where it managed to beat Trevenant, Nidoqueen and Altaria, but lost to Azumarill, Medicham and Stunfisk (a trio that you will see incredibly). often, and he’s one of our favorites), along with Swampert and Sableye. Bartic? More like Be-urgh-tic…

    In the Ultra League, Beartic is pretty consistent. Trevenant and Nidoqueen fall to the mighty bear, as does Galarian Stunfisk, but you can expect quick losses against Swampert, Cresselia, Walrein, Giratina, and Talonflame, all of which are meta-relevant and popular.

    Lastly, we have the Master League. A perfect 15/15/15 Beartic culminates in CP 3439 at level 50, which isn’t bad. Therefore, the lack of volume seen in previous leagues is not an issue here. When it comes to matchups, you’re looking to beat Garchomp, Dragonite, Mamoswine, Togekiss, and Excadrill, but lose to Mewtwo, Giratina, Zacian, Lugia, and Dialga. Perhaps if Beartic gets a more interesting moveset he will become a more dominant force in the Master League, but we can’t see any real use for him before then.

    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 Cubchoo in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, there’s a shiny Cubchoo in Pokémon Go and the cold has really gone to his head!

    Everything in Cubchoo’s evolution line is Ice type. (Image credit: | Image credit:

    Shiny Cubchoo and Shiny Beartic were released at the start of the Galarian Mr. Mime event in December 2020, and there’s even a shiny Cubchoo dressed up with a ribbon in his hair.

    What does the shiny Cubchoo look like?

    Shiny Cubchoo is so screwed up that his head has turned purple, poor thing. Meanwhile, Shiny Beartic has taken on a slightly darker, almost muddier blue. This is a much less cute shiny, as you would expect from this terrifying ice bear.

    Below you can see a video of the shiny Cubchoo evolving into a shiny Hisuian Beartic:

    Other Things to Know About Cubchoo Featured 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 Cubchoo being an Ice-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 January have yet to be announced, but we’ll keep you posted once we know more!

    Good luck finding a perfect shiny Cubchoo!
