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

This week’s Featured Hour features the Seafood Pokémon. Well, looking at it, it features some seafood, but in this case we’re specifically talking about how it’s the perfect time to catch a strong Kabuto in Pokémon Go.

Kabuto is a fan-favorite Pokémon, as it is one of the two original fossil Pokémon found in Kanto at the start of the franchise. In Pokemon Go, its Kabutops evolution is an interesting choice as a Water/Rock-type, though its current moveset keeps it at the bottom of a rather rare group of types.

Still, all Pokémon are just one or two move upgrades away from being meta relevant, so if you fancy catching a really cool Pokémon for PvP, this event is for you!

This week’s Featured Hour also comes with a triple catch XP bonus, the first ever seen in a Featured Hour and something usually reserved for Community Day, so if you’re looking to rack up XP quickly, crack an Egg from the Good luck and be good at Excellent. Curveball pitches!

Kabuto IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Kabuto 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 Kabuto based on CP alone.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1175 CP
  • Level 35 (maximum wild CP boosted by weather) – 1273 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 Kabutops good at PvP?

    No, at least not yet. Kabutops is in a strange place in the meta: as a Rock/Water type, it is weak only against Grass (double weak), Electric, Fighting, and Ground. But, thanks to the way the meta has been built, its resistance to Fire, Poison, Normal, Ice, and Flying doesn’t really get a chance to shine in Go Battle League. On top of this, it doesn’t seem likely that his poor build overall will leave him in a good position, should he receive a move upgrade that massively increases his attack.


    By running Mud Shot, Stone Edge, and Ancient Power, we’re learning quite a bit about Rock and ignoring water entirely. Mud Shot works like a fast charge fast move, but deals low non-STAB damage. This means that you are fully responding to Stone Edge as a nuke and Ancient Power as spam. All things considered, it’s a pretty inflexible Pokemon with mediocre stats.

    Starting with Great League, we have good matchups against Froslass, Alolan Ninetails, Drapion, Walrein, and Pelipper, but bad matchups against Galarian Stunfisk, Noctowl, Lanturn, Trevenant, and Sableye, all of which are important in the meta.

    In Ultra League, Kabutops works a bit better as an anti-Flyer tech. You can expect wins against Talonflame, Alolan Ninetails, Pidgeot, and both Shadow and normal Charizard. However, you lost to Swampert, Giratina, Walrein, Tapu Fini, and Trevenant.

    Master League is a brutal place for Kabutops. It will beat most Fire-types, but lose to almost everything else that’s meta-relevant.

    Is there a shiny Kabuto in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, as a Kantonian, there has been a brilliant Kabuto for many years! Shiny Kabuto was released in May 2018 as part of Adventure Week 2018!

    What does the shiny Kabuto look like?

    As you can see below, the Shiny Kabuto is a bit green. It almost looks like it’s been in one place, out of the water, for too long, but instead of being a deep moss color, it’s that weird lime green you often see with Kanton glitters.

    Shiny Kabutops follows suit with the lime green environment. With that color, he almost looks like he’s trying to cosplay Scyther.
