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

This week’s Featured Hour is all about Puppet Pokémon, making it the perfect time to catch a perfect Shuppet in Pokémon Go.

Unfortunately, Shuppet and its evolution Banette are not good at competitive play and you probably don’t want to use them in raids in Pokémon Go. However, since the current Mega Pokémon in Pokémon Go is Mega Banette, there is now a real incentive to get involved in catching as many as possible.

There was also the surprise introduction of Zorua in Australia and New Zealand during their respective Opening Hours, which, thanks to a bug, will not be available to those outside of those regions today.

In the meantime, you can also take advantage of the special bonus offered alongside this week’s Spotlight: the Double Evolution XP Bonus.

Shuppet IV stats 100% perfect in Pokémon Go

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 873 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather-Boosted Wild Max CP: 945 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 Banette good at PvP?

    No, but it’s not horrible either. Either way, you’re looking at the next moveset: Shadow Claw, Shadow Ball, and Thunder as a second charged move.


    This is a completely reasonable moveset – like most Ghosts that run the Shadow combo, it’s spammy and applies a lot of shield pressure, which when combined with STAB damage can hit pretty hard. The addition of Thunder to provide some cover is a nice bonus, especially against the likes of Azumarill and Skarmory in Great League.

    The problem is simply that there are much better options in terms of stats, especially considering that it is even glassier than Gengar, a Pokémon that has better charged moves.

    As for the Ultra League, Banette is doing a little better, but not much. Here he picks up wins against Cresellia and Walrien, but there’s not much else of interest, while losing to Giratina Altered, Swampert, Talonflame, Alolan Muk, and Trevenant, all of which are very good options in the meta.

    Compounding the problem, however, is that a perfect Ultra League Banette hits level 50, with CP 2498 (06/15/15, if you’re curious). This means two things: first, that it’s not worth pouring Stardust into, but also that it’s useless in Master League.

    The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! The Psychic Spectular event is back! 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 Shuppet in Pokémon Go?

    Yeah! Released on Halloween 2017, there is a Shiny Shuppet in Pokémon Go.

    Spotlight Hours, unlike Community Days, do not have an enhanced brightness rate, so when you search for a shiny Shuppet, you will do so with the usual brightness rates in this work. This means that if you really want a brilliant Shuppet, you need to make the most of this hour!

    What does shiny Shuppet look like?

    As you can see, the shiny Shuppet takes on a mint green color, while the evolved form, Banette, opts for an inky blue, which looks great with the gold zipper it has as a mouth. Both glosses look great!

    Thanks to YouTube user RazZi for the handy comparison.

    Meanwhile, the shiny Mega Banette takes on a color between the two, as she unzips her hands and legs, revealing both pink limbs.

    Other tips for this hour of attention

    354 is Banette’s number in the National Pokédex.

    Besides trying to catch a perfect Shiny Shuppet 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 Shuppet Candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and record its evolution, Banette, in your Pokédex.
    • Thanks to Shuppet being a Ghost-type Pokémon, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your Ghost-type catch bonus medal.

    Remember: Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm (local time).

    As mentioned, Zorua, which appeared today during Australia and New Zealand Spotlight, will likely not appear in other regions today.
