Zorua is coming to Pokemon Go today – Here’s how to catch it
In this week, Pokemon Go teased a Halloween-related event with found footage-style videos, suspiciously reminiscent of trailer for Hisuian Zorua in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. As it turns out, Zorua is actually coming to Pokemon Go for the first time this Halloween – here’s how you can catch it.
Trailers posted by Pokemon Go include videos and screenshots of large numbers of Pokemon like Noibat, Magikarp, and Pikachu spawning on the map, including references to Shuppet’s Highlights Hour. Now, Niantic has revealed that Zorua is the Pokemon behind these mysterious spawns, which is related to the buddy Pokemon the Trainer has been with them.
If you want to catch Zorua in Pokemon Go, you’ll have to have your friend on the map during tonight’s Shuppet Spotlight Hour, which runs October 25 from 6pm to 7pm player local time.
During the first five minutes of Highlight Hour, multiple clones of your buddy Pokemon will appear on the map, even if it’s a Legendary or other rare Pokemon. When you touch these Pokemon, you will encounter the tricking Pokemon Zorua.
Niantic has reported that the event will occur in both the first and last 5 minutes of Spotlight Time, however early reports from players in New Zealand suggested that the event did not appear a second time late in the hour. It’s not clear if this is a bug that will be fixed for other regions or players may only encounter a single instance of this event – but you should make sure to sign in to start Spotlight Hour just to be safe.
The second part of Pokemon Go’s Halloween event will start this week on October 27th, check it out All the details are here.
