How to Catch Hisuian Sneasel in Pokemon Go
The only way to get Hisuian Sneasel in Pokemon Go is hatch from a 7 km long egg during the Hisuian Discoverys event run by July 27 at 10 a.m. to August 3 at 8 p.m local time.
You can get 7km Eggs by opening gifts from friends as long as you have room for one. Keep in mind that there are multiple Pokemon in 7km Eggs, so you’re never guaranteed to hatch a Hisuian Sneasel.
It’s unknown if Hisuian Sneasel will stay in the 7km egg pool after this event ends or if he will disappear until a future event, so it’s a good idea to get one now while you can!
Pokemon Go How to evolve Hisuian Sneasel into Sneasler
Hisuian Sneasel can evolve into Sneasler during the day with 100 Candy. You must also set it as your buddy and walk 7 km before it can evolve, making this a pretty tricky evolutionary process.
If you’re having trouble collecting enough candies, you can set Hisuian Sneasel as your sidekick and play with him, feed him berries, and walk with him to find candies while you’re out.
Keep in mind that Hisuian Sneasel and regular Sneasel have the same candies, so you might already have saved some. It also means you can just focus on catching normal Sneasel to earn this candy.
Can Hisuian Sneasel be shiny in Pokemon Go?
This is the bad news Shiny Hisuian Sneasel is currently unavailable in Pokemon Go, which means Shiny Sneasler is also unavailable. We’ll just have to wait for them to debut in a future event.
