Hisuian Sneasel and his evolution Sneasler make their highly anticipated Pokemon Go debut, but how do you evolve them? And can they be Shiny? Let’s find out.
The brand new Hisuian Discoveries event introduces even more Hisuain forms in Pokemon Go, including the Poison/Fighting-type Hisuian Sneasler and his evolution Sneasler.
There’s a specific method you need to follow to catch a Hisuian Sneasel, and an even more time-consuming method for evolving him into Sneasler, so we’ve got all the details you need below.
How to get Hisuian Sneasel in Pokemon Go
The only way to get Hisuian Sneasel in Pokemon Go is by: hatch it from a 7km egg during the Hisuian Discoveries event, which runs from July 27 at 10 a.m. to August 3 at 8 p.m. local time.
You can get 7 km of eggs by opening Gifts from Friends, as long as you have room for them. Remember that there are multiple Pokemon in 7km Eggs, so you are never guaranteed to hatch a Hisuian Sneasel.
It’s unknown if Hisuian Sneasel will remain in the 7km Egg Pool when this event ends, or if it will disappear until a future event, so it’s a good idea to get one now while you still can!
How to evolve Hisuian Sneasel into Sneasler in Pokemon Go
Hisuian Sneasel can evolve into Sneasler during the day with 100 Candy. You also need to set it as your Buddy and walk 7km before it can evolve, making this a pretty tricky evolutionary process.
If you’re struggling to collect enough candy, you can set up Hisuian Sneasel as your buddy and play with it, feed him Berries and walk with it so he can find Candy while you explore.
Remember that Hisuian Sneasel and regular Sneasel share the same Candy, so you may have some savings already. This also means you can just focus on catching regular Sneasel to earn that Candy.
Can Hisuian Sneasel be shiny in Pokemon Go?
The bad news is that Shiny Hisuian Sneasel is currently unavailable in Pokemon Go, which means Shiny Sneasler is also unavailable. We’ll just have to wait for them to debut in a future event.
