Skorupi 100% perfect IV stats, shiny Skorupi in Pokémon Go

This week’s Spotlight is all about the Scorpion Pokémon, which actually makes sense: this Spotlight is the perfect opportunity to catch a perfect Skorupi in Pokémon Go.

Skorupi’s evolution, Drapion, is a pretty decent Pokémon in Pokémon Go and an interesting option in Go Battle League, but it is by no means a top-tier Pokémon in any of the PvP Raids.

If you’re not a scorpion fan, the other draw of this week’s Spotlight Hour is the special bonus running alongside the event: the Double Evolution XP Bonus.

Skorupi 100% Perfect IV Stats in Pokémon Go

This week’s Featured Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Skorupi 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 4* Pokédex, Raids, and Master League. However, because of how CP is calculated using three stats, a perfect Pokémon IV is usually just the best version of itself in the Master League.

Of course, you can’t see a Pokémon’s IV without catching it first, but with a little research beforehand, you can quickly spot a perfect Skorupi based on CP alone.

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

  • Level 30 (Max Wild CP) – 865 CP
  • Level 35 (Weather Boosted Wild Max CP: 937 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 Drapion good at PvP?


    Drapion is a bit of a left option in the Pokemon Go Go Battle League.

    Drapion, which runs Poison Sting, Crunch, and Aqua Tail, is the highest-rated Poison-type Pokémon in Great League. It has a flexible, spammy moveset, thanks in large part to Poison Sting’s charge speed. He also applies decent shield pressure with Aqua Tail and occasionally has an enemy defense debuff with Crunch. All in all, it’s a decent moveset.

    In league matchups, the Great League offers a chance to beat Trevenant, Froslass, Lanturn, Sableye, and Noctowl. Meanwhile, losses will come from Swampert, Azumarill, Galarian Stunfisk, Medicham, and Alolan Ninetails.

    Ultra League is a completely different story. While he executes the same moves, the competition has changed greatly and he is no longer in the top five in writing poison. It’s still decent; There are simply better options. The matchups look like this: victories against Jellicent, Cresselia, Trevenant, Giratina and Alolan Muk; defeats against Swampert, Walrein, Obstagoon, Charizard and Tapu Fini.

    Finally, we have the Master League. Do not do it; His CP is capped at 2773.

    The Season of Adventure Abundance is here! He has brought the Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest, which offers you the chance to win another Master Ball. There’s also a new season of Go Battle League to participate in. 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.

    Is there a shiny Skorupi in Pokémon Go?

    There’s a shiny Skorupi in Pokémon Go! The shiny was released in March 2020, as part of the Team Go Rocket Global Takeover event.

    However, since Spotlight Hours does not have an enhanced shine rate, the chances of finding a shine are the same as finding one in the wild. You simply have a better chance of finding one because of the number it generates.

    What does the shiny Skorupi look like?

    Shiny Skorupi and Drapion are bright flashy, but very simple in the grand scheme of things. They both selectively take the blue slider and turn it down.

    Shiny Skorupi takes his purples and swaps them for reds. His eyes and claws are still the same color: blue and white, respectively. Shiny Drapion does the same: the eyes, eyebrows, and claws stay the same, but otherwise trades in their deep purples for a burgundy/magenta shade. Of the two, the brilliant Skorupi is definitely the best!

    Other tips for this hour of attention

    Besides trying to catch a perfect shiny Skorupi in Pokémon Go, there are a couple of other good reasons to participate in this week’s Spotlight. The vast majority of players who show up for this Featured Hour will undoubtedly do so to enjoy the special one-hour bonus below:

    • The best reason is, of course, the double evolution XP bonus that runs throughout the hour. This gives you the opportunity to accumulate a lot of XP very quickly, so you can increase your trainer level. The best way to do this is to have two tags in your Pokémon storage dedicated to this time. The first is the things you want to evolve and keep (usually strong Pokémon and Pokémon you need to evolve to update your Pokédex) and the things you want to evolve and transfer. This second box should contain all of the 12 candy Pokémon. The search string to quickly find all of these rated less than 3* is: 0*,1*,2*&10,13,16,265,293,519&!shiny
    • If you’re a newcomer, this Featured Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Skorupi candy to fully evolve this Pokémon and record its evolution, Drapion, in your Pokédex.
    • Thanks to Skorupi being a Poison/Bug-type Pokémon, catching a bunch during this Featured Hour will add progress to your respective catch bonus medals.

    Remember: Spotlight Hour events only last one hour: from 6 pm to 7 pm (local time). Next week’s Featured Hour is all about Houndour and the accompanying double-capture Stardust bonus.

    Good luck finding a perfect Skorupi!
