Another Hisuian Pokémon is joining the Pokédex in Pokémon GO! This time it’s Hisuian Avalugg and it’s mimicking the debut of Hisuian Braviary. That’s right, it’s a Raid Day event. Thankfully, the Raid Day bonus staple of getting five additional free, in-person daily Raid Passes will be active. That means more chances for a Shiny Hisuian Avalugg!

Get all the details for this special three-hour-long Hisuian Avalugg Raid Day event happening this Saturday in Pokémon GO with our guide below:


Pokémon GO’s Season of Mythical Wishes – Hisuian Avalugg Raid Day

Begins: Saturday, December 24th, 2022 at 2 p.m. your local time.

Ends: Saturday, December 24th, 2022 at 5 p.m. your local time.


Featured Pokémon – Hisuian Avalugg



Hisuian Avalugg* debuts in Pokémon GO! Thanks to the addition of Shiny Bergmite earlier this month (via the Winter Holiday Part 1 event), there’s also a chance you’ll encounter a Shiny Hisuian Avalugg.

You’ll find Hisuian Avalugg* in 3-Star Raids. Like previous Raid Day events, you’ll get additional, free in-person daily Raid Passes (up to five and you can get this by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms).


Note: Pokémon marked with an * means that “If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!”


Event Bonuses

  • Hisuian Avalugg will appear more frequently in 3-Star Raids.
  • Earn up to five (5) additional daily Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs.
  • Enjoy an increased chance of encountering Shiny Hisuian Avalugg.


This event overlaps with the Winter Holiday Part 2 event, so the following bonuses will also be in effect:

  • Trainers can store up to 40 Gifts until the end of the event
  • Winter/snowy overlay on overworld screen and during Pokémon catch encounters.
  • Various bonuses depending on which Winter Wishes Timed Research route is picked (pick one):
    • Hatch Distance Bonus: 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event period
    • XP Bonus: 2× XP for catching Pokémon
    • Stardust Bonus: 2× Stardust for catching Pokémon


Bonuses from the Winter Wonderland will also be in effect. They are:

  • One (1) extra special trade per day
  • Daily Adventure Incense activated during the event will last for 30 minutes (instead of the standard 15 minutes)
