Pokémon Go Hisuian Pokémon forms list

How to add the Hisui variants to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.

Hisuian Pokémon, such as Hisuian Voltorb and Hisuian Electrode, can now be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.

Hisuian Pokémon includes both Hisui variants for Pokémon from past generations and new evolutions for Pokémon like Scyther and Stantler.

Hisuian Voltorb was the first Hisui variant to be added into Pokémon Go, with its debut being part of the in-game celebration for the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch.

Hisuian Pokémon in Pokémon Go explained

Hisuian Pokémon, like Alolan and Galarian Pokémon, are regional variants of Pokémon from past generations. This means they differ both physically and statistically, including different types, from their original counterparts.

Hisuian Pokémon made their first appearance in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, where the player explores the Hisui region which, hundreds of years later, would be known as the Sinnoh region.

In Legends: Arceus, some of the Hisuian Pokémon can only be obtained by meeting a special requirement with a Pokémon from a past generation and then evolving it, such as evolving Stantler into Wyrdeer. Since only two Hisuain Pokémon have been released into Pokémon Go at the time of writing, we don't know how these special requirements will translate to the mobile game.

In Pokémon Go, Hisuian Pokémon are a type of Pokémon Forme, just like how Burmy has a different appearance depending on the location you encounter it in.

Thankfully, Hisuian Pokémon share the same candy as their traditional counterparts. This means that, if you have enough candy to evolve a Kanto Voltorb into an Electrode, you can do the same with a Hisuian Voltorb.

Here are some of the Hisuian Pokémon which have been released in the game so far:

If you’re missing a Hisuian Pokémon from your collection, keep an eye on the seasonal or event spawns, along with the 7km egg pool, to see if they’ve been included.


The Season of Go has arrived! You can use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. This season has also seen the lowering of the requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego, along with new Prime Gaming rewards every fortnight.
