How Misunderstood Mischief works and how to catch Hoopa in Pokémon Go, including release dates

Misunderstood Mischief is the first special research quest to launch throughout a season, the Season of Mischief, in Pokémon Go. This means that to fully complete the quest, you need to make sure you play regularly and attend in-game events so that you can collect and complete new challenge sets as they become available.

Currently, we only have the September dates for new challenge sets:

  • Sunday, September 5: Hoopa Arrival
  • Wednesday, September 8 – Psychic Spectacular
  • Tuesday, September 21 – Fashion Week

The official Pokémon Go blog, however, suggests that two sets of challenges will be released in October and two in November.

Misunderstood Mischief release schedule from the official Pokémon Go blog on Wednesday, September 1.

This post on the official Pokémon Go blog also indicates that we can meet Confined Hoopa by completing the tasks that will be unlocked starting Sunday, September 5. It is still unknown if completing this specific set of tasks will result in an encounter with Confined Hoopa or if we are simply being put on the path to this reward.

It’s a good idea to keep up with Misunderstood Shenanigans, making sure to complete new challenges as they appear, because, if you fully complete the special research mission at the end of the season (the exact date has not yet been released), you will be able to Get access to a special Hoopa-themed event.

The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball mission and compete in Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to encounter Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

How to get Hoopa in Pokémon Go

Hoopa Confined.

Hoopa has been up to mischief in Pokémon Go since Go Fest 2021, where his story began with the Strange Rings special research quest. This quest not only introduced Hoopa, but also used the Mythical Pokémon to explain why so many Legendary Pokémon appeared in one day.

Hoopa then reappeared for the Ultra Unlock 2021: Sword and Shield event, as it opened a portal to the Galar region, allowing several Gen 8 Pokémon to appear in Pokémon Go.

Hoopa unleashed.

Now, with the Season of Mischief upon us, we can finally catch them, with Hoopa Confined available upon completing Step 3 of the quest.

Hoopa itself is a Gen 6 Mythical Pokémon inspired by djinn mythology and has two forms: Hoopa Confined and Hoopa Unbound. In its Confined form, Hoopa is a Psychic and Ghost-type Pokémon, but in its Unleashed form, Hoopa is a Psychic and Dark-type Pokémon.

So far, Hoopa has only appeared in his confined form in Pokémon Go, but you never know, maybe at the end of the Season of Mischief we’ll unleash Hoopa Unbound!

Good luck completing the Misunderstood Mischief quest!
