Unlocking the Secrets of Buneary and Lopunny in Pokémon Go
Attention, Pokémon Go enthusiasts! Everyone's favorite rabbit Pokémon, Buneary, is on show. Though it might not be Easter, it's raining Bunearys and you definitely don't want to miss out. Bunearys are swarming the virtual landscape and this event offers trainers a perfect opportunity to catch a 100% perfect IV Buneary. And if catching Bunearys isn't your cup of tea, the double evolution XP bonus during this special hour makes it worthwhile to crack a Lucky Egg and go on a fast-paced adventure.
Buneary 100% Perfect IV Stats
For seasoned players, pursuing perfection is as thrilling as the hunt itself, and in the world of Pokémon Go, it means capturing Pokémon with perfect stats. This involves netting creatures with maxed-out 100% IV versions, which roughly translates to 15/15/15 stats specifically needed in your 4* Pokédex, raids, and Master League. Though the IV stats of a Pokémon are hidden until you catch it, trained eyes can spot a perfect Buneary based on the CP alone. For Trainers at Level 30 or above, the following are the ideal CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Buneary:
Combat Prowess of Lopunny
Despite its adorable appearance, Lopunny sadly doesn't pack much punch in combat scenarios. It lacks the necessary firepower to be worthy of inclusion in raid teams, and its generally low attack stats mean it won't bag you many wins in battles. However, it does shine in the Great League, securing wins against formidable opponents such as Registeel, Lickitung, Shadow Gligar, Galarian Stunfisk, and Lanturn. On the flip side, it falls short against Medicham, Alolan Ninetales, Venusaur, Swampert, and regular Gligar. In the Ultra League, replacing Focus Blast with Fire Punch enhances its abilities to take down Trevenant, Escavalier, Giratina, Venusaur, and Greedent.
Seasons of Adventurous Fun Play
The Season of Adventures Abound has introduced Party Play, Pokémon Go's multiplayer feature, and the Welcome Party quest. The Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest and the Go Battle League also provide challenging tasks for trainers. The use of Daily Adventure Incense provides players a chance to encounter rare Pokémon like Galarian Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and many more.
Glimmering Shiny Buneary and Lopunny
Buneary and its evolution, Lopunny, come in shiny versions as well. Though these were first introduced in April 2019 during the annual Eggstravaganza event, they are still coveted by passionate trainers. However, it's important to remember that the shiny rate isn't boosted during Spotlight Hours. This means your best shot at getting a shiny Buneary is to fully utilize this special hour. Both Buneary and Lopunny appear pink in their shiny form, adding another layer of endearing cuteness to these already adorable creatures.
