Rhyhorn 100% perfect IV stats, shiny Rhyhorn preview in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is all about Rhyhorn, the Spike Pokémon, which…does it work? It’s more of an armored pokemon. Or even the rhino Pokemon would have worked. Still, this is a great opportunity to search for a perfect Rhyhorn in Pokémon Go.

Rhyhorn is a great choice for Spotlight Hour, not because of its use in competitive play, but because its final evolution is an excellent raid attacker in Pokémon Go, which means you’ll almost always have a use for Rhyhorn Candy.

With that in mind, you’ll be pleased to know that this week’s Featured Hour due to the double candy catch bonus running in conjunction with the event – putting in the effort here could pay off in raids for years to come.

Rhyhorn 100% Perfect IV Stats in Pokemon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Rhyhorn with perfect IV stats.


“Perfect” means two things in Pokémon Go, depending on how you plan to use a given Pokémon. First, there’s the max build, 100% IV, which is the 15/15/15 you’re looking for for your Pokédex 4*, raids, and Master League. However, because of how CP is calculated using three stats, a perfect Pokemon IV is usually just the best version of itself in Master League.

Of course, you can’t see a Pokemon’s IV without catching it first, but with a bit of research beforehand, you can quickly spot a perfect Rhyhorn based solely on CP.

If you’re at level 30 (or higher), you’ll ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Rhyhorn:

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 1415 CP
  • Level 35 (Max Wild CP Weather Boosted) – 1533 CP
  • The wild CP value aligns with your trainer level until you reach level 30, and since the majority of the player base is now above this level, we’ve kept these values ​​for the sake of simplicity. However, these values ​​will be different if you are currently below level 30.

    Is Rhyperior good at PvP?

    No. Unfortunately, it’s pretty horrible: as a Ground/Rock Pokémon, it has dual weaknesses to both Grass and Water. This pretty much rules him out of the Big League and Ultra League, right off the bat. The irony of this Pokémon knowing Surf is not lost on us, but it is what it is, and what it is is bad.


    Rhyperior runs Mud Slap (Fast), Rock Wrecker (Charged), and Surf (Charged) in all three leagues. Mud Slap hits pretty hard, Rock Wrecker is the reason you have a Rhyperior, and Surf is there to cover you.

    This seems like the perfect time to mention that a Rhyperior with Rock Wrecker is great in raids, and if you get a decent Rhyhorn, you should consider using an Elite Charged TM to teach it this legacy move once you’re fully evolved. Since you’re unlikely to use it in Go Battle League, you can skip adding a second charged move.

    In Great League this means wins against Registeel, Bastiodon, Skarmory, Dunsparce, and Noctowl. Meanwhile, losses will come from the meta-relevant Medicham, Sableye, Lanturn, Galarian Stunfisk, and Umbreon.

    The Ultra League is equally poor. You can beat Alolan Muk, Talonflame, Pidgeot, Charizard, and Sylveon. You’ll lose quickly to Cresselia, Swampert, and Walrein, and lose a bit slower to Cobalion and Giratina.

    In an odd twist for the Spotlight Hour, Master League is the only viable league for Rhyperior, thanks to worse Water-type threats being less of a problem. no way is excellent here, but it’s not terrible, which is to look for our friend who shoots with his hands. Expect to beat Dialga, Togekiss, Zacian, Excadrill, and Giratina. The casualties, meanwhile, will come from Groudon, Garchomp, Lugia, Metagross and Mewtwo.

    The second day of Go Fest Global sees the global release of Mega Rayquaza! Be sure to complete the Sky High Special Research mission to earn a meteor for this mega evolution. If you haven’t already, you can also complete the Fascinating Facets quest to catch Diancie. Elsewhere in Hidden Gem Season we’ve seen the release of Routes, Zygarde, and a new season of Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, use Daily Adventure Incense for a chance to run into Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. This incense can also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

    Is there a shiny Rhyhorn in Pokémon Go?

    Yes, as with all Kanton Pokémon, there is a Shiny Rhyhorn in Pokémon Go. In this case, the shiny Rhyhorn joined the game in February 2020 as part of their Community Day event!

    What does the shiny Rhyhorn look like?

    As you can see below, the shiny Rhyhorn is the answer to the question everyone was asking: what if instead of Mud Slap, Rhyhorn used a mud bath?

    Ok, no one was asking that, but that’s what we’re dealing with here: an oddly tan mud, as opposed to the normally slate-gray armor that adorns Rhyhorn.

    Meanwhile, Shiny Rhydon is quite disappointing, as he changes his usual colors to a yellowish-green. Gen 1 made its dirt Pokemon with plenty of glitters, especially those that dive into the green side of the color palette. Shiny Rhyperior follows a similar body color to Shiny Rhydon, but swaps out his orange plates for a sandy yellow color. This is all quite disappointing, considering the brilliant color that Rhyhorn brings.

    Other tips for this hour of attention

    In addition to trying to catch a Shiny Rhyhorn in Pokémon Go, there are a couple more good reasons to participate in this week’s Featured Hour:

    • The best reason is of course the double catch candy bonus that runs for the whole hour. This gives you a chance to collect candy twice as fast as usual, and each Rhyhorn caught will give up to 13 candy if you use a Pinap/Silver Berry with a Mega Evolved Pokemon of the same type, instead of the basic three.
    • This bonus also extends to research rewards. Remember, you don’t need to catch these Pokémon when you complete the task; if you run away, you can “stack up” up to 200 Pokemon for times like this, or whenever you want to max out a Star Piece or Lucky Egg bonus.
    • If you’re a newcomer, this Featured Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Rhyhorn Candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and add its evolution to your Pokédex.
    • Since Rhyhorn is a Ground/Rock-type, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medals.

    Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week’s featured hour shows Yungoos bringing back the Candy double transfer bonus. Be sure to start tagging which Pokémon you want to transfer now!

    Good luck finding a perfect Rhyhorn!
