Hippopotas Evolution Pokémon Go will allow you to add a powerful Ground-Type Pokémon to your team. Here's how to evolve Hippopotas in Pokémon Go, and even how to get a Shiny one.

Hippopotas Evolution Pokemon Go

Hippopotas evolves into Hippowdon with 25 candies. Hippowdon is a pure Ground-Type Pokémon that can learn all of the elemental fang moves: Fire Fang, Thunder Fang and Ice Fang. Fire Fang is typically considered to be the best of the three, as it is boosted by sunlight and clear skies. Hippowdon becomes significantly weaker in rain and snow, so players will want to avoid encounters with unfavorable weather conditions.

Hippopotas has a different coloration based on its gender. A male will have a yellow body with brown spots, and a female will have a brown body with yellow spots. A Shiny male has gray spots instead of brown, and a Shiny female will be gray with yellow spots. Shiny Pokémon are designated by a small sparkle effect.

Players have the chance to hatch a Shiny Hippopotas from 7km eggs during the Sinnoh Region Celebration event. This event will run 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 7 to 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10 in your local time.
