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

This week’s Featured Hour is all about the Eagle Pokémon, which is a really cute way of saying that this week’s event is the perfect time to catch a perfect Rufflet in Pokémon Go.

Braviary, the evolution of Rufflet, is a poor choice in Pokémon Go, both as a raid attacker and in Go Battle League.

But most importantly, the double-catch Stardust bonus that runs alongside this Spotlight Hour is a great option if you’re looking for a way to spend a Tuesday afternoon.

Rufflet IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

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

Steering wheel.

“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 Pokemon IV is usually just the best version of itself in 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 Rufflet 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 Rufflet:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1278 CP
  • Level 35 (maximum wild CP boosted by weather) – 1384 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 Braviary good at PvP?

    In short, no, it’s like Pidgeot (which is excellent), but worse in almost every way… If you need a Normal/Flying type, Pidgeot is by far the way to go.


    If you want to try Braviary in PvP, you’ll want to run Air Slash, Brave Bird, and Close Combat. That’s pretty horrible: Air Slash is nothing special, but both charged attacks are self-debuff attacks, with Brave Bird reducing your defense by 3 and Close Combat by 2. Braviary is not designed for PvP.

    This brings us to the confrontations. In Great League, you can beat Trevenant, Victreebel, Diggersby, Lickitung, and Sandslash. You lose against the entire meta outside of Trevenant.

    Ultra League is very similar: you beat Buzzwole, Trevenant, Snorlax, Virizion and Obstagoon. The losses come from Walrein, Charizard, Cresselia, Swampert and Giratina.

    Master League has an interesting matchup where Braviary marginally beats Giratina. Victories against Heracross, Bewear, Buzzwole, and Snorlax are less exciting, and losses against, well, everything else should be expected.

    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 there a shiny Rufflet in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, there is a shiny Rufflet in Pokémon Go! Shiny Rufflet and Braviary were added in December 2020, along with the shiny Celebi, as part of the Secrets of the Jungle event. It’s a difficult shiny to face!

    However, since Spotlight Hours does not have an enhanced shine rate, the chances of finding a shine are the same as finding one in the wild. You simply have a better chance of finding one because of the number it generates.

    What does the shiny Rufflet look like?

    As you can see below, the bright Rufflet changes its blues to browns and then slides the yellow saturation up slightly. Unfortunately it’s not the most inspired shiny…

    Shiny Braviary, however, is a bit flashier. The blues on his torso and the underside of his wings are again replaced with brown, but this time the reds are replaced with a beautiful shade of blue!

    (New information) Shiny Rufflet will arrive on December 14 at 8:00 am local time! By u/PokeJiggy on TheSilphRoad To view this content, please enable targeting cookies. Manage cookie settings

    Other tips for this hour of attention

    Besides trying to catch a shiny Rufflet in Pokémon Go, there are other good reasons to participate in this week’s Spotlight:

    • The best reason is of course the double catch Stardust bonus that runs throughout the hour. This gives you the chance to collect Stardust twice as fast as usual, and each Rufflet captured awards 200 Stardust instead of the basic 100. If the weather in the game is partly cloudy or windy, this adds an additional 50 Stardust (double the usual 25). ), and this stacks with a Star Piece to give a 1.5x multiplier to all Stardust earned. This means that each Weather-Enhanced Rufflet captured while wearing a Star Piece will be worth 375 Stardust!
    • If you’re a newcomer, this Featured Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Rufflet candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and enter its evolution, Braviary, into the Pokédex.
    • Thanks to Rufflet being a Normal/Flying type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medals.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week’s Spotlight Hour events feature the Ball Whale Pokémon, Wailmer!

    Good luck finding a perfect Rufflet!
