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

This week’s Spotlight focuses on the Grass Feather Pokémon, which *checks notes*. Wait, Rowlet doesn’t have a pen. And it has no grass. Whatever it is, it’s Rowlet Spotlight Hour, as you may have guessed, which means it’s the perfect time to catch a perfect Rowlet in Pokémon Go.

Unfortunately, Rowlet and her evolution, Decidueye, are pretty horrible in Pokémon Go, which is a shame since it’s a starter Pokémon and very cute with its little bow tie made of leaves. We would almost feel bad if it weren’t as bad as it is. While there is a Hisuian form of Decidueye, it’s not yet available in Pokémon Go, but we hope it does our little bird justice and makes him even more useful in the world of Pokémon Go.

If you don’t want to stick with Rowlet, the other attraction of this week’s Spotlight Hour is the special bonus that runs alongside the event: the Double Evolution XP Bonus.

Rowlet IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Rowlet 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 Rowlet 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 Rowlet:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 907 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather-Boosted Wild Max CP: 982 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 Decideueye good at PvP?


    No. No, it’s not. It’s pretty awful across the board: the Grass/Ghost combo is pretty much exclusively dominated by Trevenant and, to a much lesser degree, Gourgeist. However, since Hisuian Form is a Grass/Fighting type, it lands firmly in the category with Chesnaught and Virizion, both of which have enjoyed a huge boost in available attacks to shoot them up the PvP rankings.

    But how good a Pokémon that isn’t in the game may or may not be is a problem for another day. Right now, what you need to know is that Decidueye is impactful across the board. Performs Razor Leaf, Brave Bird, and Energy Ball, which applies fast movement pressure, but is slow and does not apply shield pressure. Combined with all the mass of a light breeze, you can see why the emo archer bird completely and completely misses the mark.

    If you are determined to try Decidueye, you can expect the following wins and losses. In Great League you can expect to beat Swampert, Azumarill, Lanturn and Medicham, but lose to Noctowl, Trevenant (obviously), Registeel, Galarian Stunfisk and Sableye. None of this will surprise anyone.

    Ultra League is the same: you lose faster against Trevenant, Cresselia, Scrafty, Nidoqueen and Walrein.

    Which brings us to the Master League: you can still beat Swampert, which surprises no one, along with Ursaluna, Kyogre, and Mamoswine, but you lose very quickly to Dialga, Mewtwo, Garchomp, Zacian, and Excadrill.

    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 Rowlet in Pokémon Go?

    Compounding one of the worst attention spans in recent memory, there is no shiny Rowlet in Pokémon Go. Maybe there will be a Community Day where the Hisuiana form will be released, where we’ll get two for the price of one, but alas, that’s pure speculation.

    Rowlet and Dartrix are Grass/Flying types, while Decidueye loses the Flying type to the Ghost type. (Image via

    What does the shiny Rowlet look like?

    Shiny Rowlet, Dartrix, and Decidueye change their greens to different shades of blue and teal, and their browns to shades of blue and black.

    These are interesting color options, making the trio look much more like water types than grass types.

    Other tips for this hour of attention

    Besides trying to catch a perfect shiny Rowlet in Pokémon Go, there are a couple of other good reasons to participate in this week’s Spotlight. The vast majority of players who show up for this Featured Hour will undoubtedly do so to enjoy the special one-hour bonus below:

    • The best reason is, of course, the double evolution XP bonus that runs throughout the hour. This gives you the opportunity to accumulate a lot of XP very quickly, so you can increase your trainer level. The best way to do this is to have two tags in your Pokémon storage dedicated to this time. The first is the things you want to evolve and keep (usually strong Pokémon and Pokémon you need to evolve to update your Pokédex) and the things you want to evolve and transfer. This second box should contain all of the 12 candy Pokémon. The search string to quickly find all of these rated less than 3* is: 0*,1*,2*&10,13,16,265,293,519&!shiny
    • If you’re a newcomer, this Featured Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Rowlet candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and record its evolution, Pidgeot, in your Pokédex.
    • Thanks to Rowlet being a Grass and Flying-type Pokémon, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medals.

    Remember: Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week’s Featured Hour is all about Litten and the accompanying double-catch Stardust bonus.

    Good luck finding a perfect Rowlet!
