Did you know that Hoopa Pokémon Go can be found for players in Pokémon Go but if you want to know how, then read on. Hoopa first made an appearance in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. This Pokémon is rare but there’s a lot to be said for players that try hard and catch one!
Hoopa is a mythical Psychic and Ghost Type Pokémon in Pokémon Go. Its best moves are Confusion and Shadow Ball. So, it takes on two different forms however, there’s only one form available in Pokémon Go, the Confined form which is both a Psychic and Ghost-type Pokémon. You can encounter this mythical Pokémon early in the series, but you’ll need to complete various tasks to find it. It’s a really strong Pokémon that has a high attack statistic. It’s only got middling defensive numbers and stamina numbers making it great for offense but it’s not that highly rated for raids or Go Battle League matches.
The newest task series in Pokémon Go where you can encounter Hoopa is called Misunderstood Mischief and there are lots of things you need to complete first. To get to Hoopa, you’ll have to reach step 3, here’s what you’ll need to do:
To complete this task, you’ll have to use a single incense, take three photographs of Psychic Pokémon, and perform ten “nice” throws. When you complete these tasks, you’ll be rewarded with the following:
For this task you’ll be rewarded with:
For this step, you’ll need to perform 5 “Curveball” throws and collect ten different Pokémon species. Additionally, you’ll need to earn 5,000 Stardust. Once you’ve completed those tasks, you’ll gain rewards that include the following:
The next step is using a Confined Hoopa. A Confined Hoopa is only weak to Ghost and Dark-Type Moves. It’s also able to prevent damage through Psychic, Normal, Fighting and Poison moves. You can’t change Hoopa from its Confined form to its Unbound Form, neither can you change Hoopa from its Unbound Form to its Confined Form. At this stage, your Confined Hoopa is only able to learn two fast moves. They are Confusion to Psychic and Astonish to Ghost.
In Charge Move, they’re Psybeam to Psychic, Shadow Ball to Ghost and Psychic to Psychic. There’s not much variety so if you want your Hoopa to perform to the optimum, your Hoopa needs to understand Confusion in order to perform its Fast Move and Shadow Ball for its Charge move. If you want to know how your Hoopa can learn them, it’s taught really easily through TMs and using this, none of the moves are locked behind events.
This is a large Pokémon Go Hoopa that has six arms and is light blue in color with purple fur and hair. It is a Psychic Pokémon that delivers really big hits and adds a Dark Type, whereas Hoopa Confined is a Ghost-Type Pokémon. To unlock this type of Pokémon, you need to befriend Hoopa by completing Misunderstood Mischief. You must get Hoopa Confined first before you move onto the Unbound character.
To do so, be prepared to spend 50 Hoopa Candy and 10,000 Stardust. You can also move your Hoopa Unbound back to Confined (this only costs 10 Hoopa Candy and 2,000 Stardust).
When you complete your Misunderstood Mischief Special Research Story, you’ll be able to release Hoopa from its Confined form to a Hoopa Unbound but to do so, you need to use a special item called the Prison Bottle. To do so, you have to encounter a Hoopa and befriend it. Once you’ve finished the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research Story (which is a season-long), you will unlock Hoopa Unbound.
