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

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

I know, we also came up with Bulbasaur, but Petilil is a long way from the first Pokémon in the National Pokédex. While Petilil and its evolved form Lilligant don’t have much use in Pokémon Go, as they’re pretty horrible in both Go Battle League and raids, it’s a great opportunity to look for the elusive Petilil 100% IV, which is usually a rare spawn. common. However, with the eventual release of Hisuian Lilligant, this might be a good time to stock up on high IV basic forms!

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.

Petilil IV Stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Petilil 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.

In this case, a perfect Lilligant in Great League has a maximum CP of 1500 at level 25, with IV 02/15/14.

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 Petilil will spawn.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 883 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather-Boosted Wild Max CP: 956 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 Lilliant good at PvP?

    No. No, it’s not. Petilil is pretty bad in Little Cup and Lilligant is terrible in Great League, Ultra League, and (unsurprisingly) Master League. He’s also incredibly frustrating to build, given that he has hidden power, one of those moves that eats up fast TMs like nobody’s business.


    While Lilligant has a reasonable attack stat, his defense is too low to be relevant, putting him firmly in the glass cannon category. Other problems include that it is very slow to use, applies low shield pressure, and is vulnerable to many different weaknesses: insects, fire, flying, ice, and poison.

    While it runs Charm as its fast attack, it’s not enough to make it worth using in Great League, it’s not even in the top 50% of normal types, so to say there are better options is an understatement. Is only fair better than a Shadow Bulbasaur, and loses to multiple Water-types (Lanturn and Swampert), a Ground-type (Galarian Stunfisk), and many other meta-relevant Pokémon).

    By running Charm, Petal Blizzard and Hyperbeam, as is the case in all leagues, a Lilligant will defeat Sableye, Scrafty, Umbreon, Obstagoon and even Altaria, but is it really worth it? Not even close.

    In Ultra League, Lilligant dances a similar dance, defeating Dragonite, Buzzwole, and Virizion. However, she loses to the same Pokémon as before, with the added bonus of losing to Talonflame and Cresselia, both very common in the meta.

    Lastly, we have the Master League. A perfect 15/15/15 Lilligant caps at CP 2883 at level 50, meaning he will be crushed very quickly by the big beaters at the top of this meta.

    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 Petilil in Pokémon Go?

    Unfortunately no: there is no shiny Petilil in Pokémon Go and there probably won’t be until we get the release of Hisuian Lilligant. It’s possible they’ll host a Petilil Community Day before then, releasing the shiny in the process, but it seems like an odd choice and will almost certainly have fans up in arms, clamoring for the most interesting Hisuian form.

    What does shiny Petilil look like?

    Shiny Petilil simply takes on a straw color, like slightly dehydrated grass. The same goes for Lilligant, although her flower crown takes on a pink color instead of orange.

    Below you can see a video of the shiny Petilil evolving into a shiny Hisuian Lilligant:

    Other Things to Know About Petilil Highlight Hour

    Hisuian Lilligant.

    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 Petilil being a grass-type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your grass-type 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. Next week’s Spotlight features Hoothoot and double-evolving XP, so be sure to start tagging Pokémon to evolve now!
