Here’s everything you need to know about the Hisuian Samurott Raid Day event in Pokemon GO!

The Hisuian version of Samurott is finally coming to Pokemon GO, and the game is holding a Raid Day to celebrate!

Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to battle Hisuian Samurott in 3-Star Raids during this event. Plus, there are also some great in-game bonuses for all players and a ticket to take your Raid Day experience to the next level!

Hisuian Samurott Raid Day Date & Time

The Hisuian Samurott Raid Day event is taking place from 2 PM to 5 PM local time on Sunday, December 3, 2023.

This gives players just 3 hours to battle, defeat, and catch Hisuian Samurott.

After this event, it is not known when Hisuian Samurott will next be in 3-Star Raids. Therefore, we suggest you catch one while you can!

The following bonuses will be active throughout the whole of the Hisuian Samurott Raid Day event:

  • Receive up to five additional free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs
  • The Remote Raid limit will be increased to 20
  • Increased chance to encounter Shiny Hisuian Samurott
  • Hisuian Samurott will appear more frequently in Raids

Can You Catch Shiny Hisuian Samurott on Raid Day?

Yes, you can catch the shiny version of Hisuian Samurott on the December 3 Raid Day.

After winning a Hisuian Samurott Raid, there is a low chance that the Hisuian Samurott you encounter will be the shiny version. The shiny Hisuian Samurott has a white and grey head and details on its body instead of the standard version’s dark purple and red.

Niantic has not disclosed the odds of Hisuian Samurott being shiny, but we do know that they will be boosted during the Raid Day. This means that you’re more likely to encounter a shiny Hisuian Samurott than at any other time!
