Hisuian Pokémon, such as Hisuian Voltorb and Hisuian Electrode, can now be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.
Hisuian Pokémon includes both Hisui variants for Pokémon from past generations and new evolutions for Pokémon like Scyther and Stantler.
Hisuian Voltorb was the first Hisui variant to be added into Pokémon Go, with its debut being part of the in-game celebration for the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch.

Hisuian Pokémon in Pokémon Go explained
Hisuian Pokémon, like Alolan and Galarian Pokémon, are regional variants of Pokémon from past generations. This means they differ both physically and statistically, including different types, from their original counterparts.
Hisuian Pokémon made their first appearance in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, where the player explores the Hisui region which, hundreds of years later, would be known as the Sinnoh region.
In Legends: Arceus, some of the Hisuian Pokémon can only be obtained by meeting a special requirement with a Pokémon from a past generation and then evolving it, such as evolving Stantler into Wyrdeer. Since only two Hisuain Pokémon have been released into Pokémon Go at the time of writing, we don't know how these special requirements will translate to the mobile game.
In Pokémon Go, Hisuian Pokémon are a type of Pokémon Forme, just like how Burmy has a different appearance depending on the location you encounter it in.
Thankfully, Hisuian Pokémon share the same candy as their traditional counterparts. This means that, if you have enough candy to evolve a Kanto Voltorb into an Electrode, you can do the same with a Hisuian Voltorb.
Here are some of the Hisuian Pokémon which have been released in the game so far:
- Hisuian Voltorb as part of the Voltorb from the Hisui region?! event in January 2022.
- Hisuian Electrode as part of the Go Tour Poké Ball Prep Rally event in February 2022.
- During the Hisuian Discoveries event of July 2022, the following Pokémon were released:
