More Hisuian Pokémon are making their debut in Pokémon Go during this week’s Hisuian Discoveries event, running from 10am on the 27th July through to 8pm on the 2nd August. Hisuian Growlithe, Qwilfish and Sneasel will join the previously released Hisuian Voltorb in 7km eggs, while Hisuian Braviary will debut in Raids during a special Raid Day this Sunday.

Running from 11am to 2pm local time on the 31st July, Hisuian Braviary, as well as it’s Shiny form, will be appearing in raids for the first time. Additional bonuses during the event include an increased chance to receive Rare Candy XL from in-person Raid battles, 50% more XP for winning Raid battles and up to 5 free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs both during the event and up to two hours afterwards.
