Water Festival Beach Week Spotlight Hour Pokémon perfect stats in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a little different than usual. In honor of spring turning into summer in the Northern Hemisphere, the Water Festival event is back! But does it bring the new debut Pokémon, Sandygast? No, of course not, but bring a record five Pokémon from Spotlight Hour to try your luck in Pokémon Go!

This Spotlight Hour event is also unique in that the special bonus is more like those seen during a Pokémon Go Community Day event. This is the first time we’ve seen a triple-catch XP bonus for Spotlight Hour, so if you’re looking to rack up XP fast, crack a lucky egg and get good at some great curveball pitches.

Which Pokémon are in the Water Festival Pokémon Spotlight Hour in Pokémon Go?

For once, there are five Pokémon to catch during this week’s featured hour: Krabby, Kabuto, Corphish, Clauncher, and Crabrawler, meaning it’s a great opportunity to target multiple Pokémon 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 Pokémon based on CP alone.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1338 CP
  • Level 35 (maximum wild CP boosted by weather) – 1449 CP
  • 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
  • If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect Corphish 15/15/15:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1055 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP) – 1143 CP
  • If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Clauncher:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 932 CP
  • Level 35 (maximum wild CP boosted by weather) – 1010 CP
  • If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Crabrawler:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1168 CP
  • Level 35 (maximum wild CP boosted by weather) – 1265 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.

    Are Water Festival Pokémon good in PvP?

    No, unfortunately not. Of the five Pokémon here, the most interesting for Go Battle League is Corphish, thanks to its Crawdaunt evolution. Kabutops is a fan favorite, thanks to the fact that it comes from the Kanto Fossil Pokemon, making it exceptionally sought after in the original games, but it lacks the bulk to make it worth running in PvP.


    Kingler is fantastic in raids thanks to his high attack stat, but this comes at the cost of low volume, which is often the death knell for competitive play.

    If you’re desperate to use it, you can run Mud Shot, Crabhammer, and X-Scissor, although Mud Shot is a legacy move so you’ll have to waste an Elite TM on it.

    And it’s really a waste because it’s not a good Pokémon in Go Battle League.

    Be sure to catch a decent Krabby and turn it into Kingler if you’re lacking powerful Water-type attackers, but don’t bother with PvP.

    Next up is Clawitzer, which runs Water Gun, Crabhammer, and Ice Beam or Dark Pulse.

    Ice Beam is preferable for Great League and Dark Pulse for Master League, but the point is moot as its attack stat makes it woefully bad in PvP, as it increases CP without bulking up. His moves are good, he just can’t go claw to claw in anything stronger than a strong breeze.


    Rounding out the list is Crabominable, a Fighting/Ice type that evolves from a mono-Fighting type. It’s a remarkably strange choice for a Water Festival, but who are we to say when Niantic does something strange…?

    Fast forward, this Pokémon is simply terrible in PvP, for the same reasons as above and more. By running Bubble, Ice Punch, and Crabhammer, you lose to pretty much anything that counts.

    He performs best in the Great League, where he beats Nidoqueen and nothing more relevant.

    With no less than six weaknesses and a single STAB move, it will be difficult to win anything with this Crabominable Pokémon.

    Are there shiny Water Festival Pokémon in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, with the exception of Crabrawler, all of these Pokémon can be shiny!

    However, it is important to remember that the odds of shining do not increase during this event, meaning they have the same chance of shining as any other time of day on an average Tuesday.

    Shiny Krabby is a cool gold color, while shiny Kingler takes on a dark green hue.

    Shiny Kabuto and Shiny Kabutops turn a lime green color.

    Shiny Corphish is an amazing purple, while Shiny Crawdaunt is a disappointing orange.

    Finally, the shiny Clauncher makes its Pokémon Go debut at this event, meaning you can catch one for the first time in Pokémon Go.

    Somewhat awkwardly, both the shiny Clauncher and Clawitzer simply change the color they would take if you cooked them, taking on the color of cooked lobster!

    Shiny Clauncher also changes his yellows to blues and his blacks to whites. Shiny Clawitzer swaps these surroundings, with his blacks turning blue and his yellows turning white. They look great, as you can see below.

    Other tips for this hour of attention

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

    • The best reason is, of course, the triple catch XP bonus that runs throughout the hour. This applies to all Pokémon caught and stacked with a Lucky Egg, so do your best to be good at excellent Curve Ball casts to rack up XP quickly! Remember, with a lucky egg, that’s 6,000 XP for a great curveball throw!
    • If you’re a newcomer, this Featured Hour is the perfect time to collect enough candy to fully evolve these Pokémon and enter their evolution in the Pokédex.
    • Since these Pokémon are mostly Water-types, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medal. You can also increase your Fight medal with Crabrawler and Rock with Kabuto.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Come back next week for an introduction to Binacle with its double candy catch bonus!

    Good luck finding the perfect thing you need during this spotlight hour!
