Niantic Labs, The Pokémon Company

For the second part of the Winter Holiday event in Pokémon GO, Hisuian Avalugg will be making their debut in the game.

Pokémon GO Hisuian Avalugg: How to Catch

In its debut for Pokémon GO Hisuian Avalugg will appear more frequently in Three-Star Raids. On Dec. 24 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, trainers can attempt to catch Hisuian Avalugg. If they are lucky enough they might even come across a Shiny Hisuian Avalugg.

Featured events, raids, and spotlight hours are the best opportunities to target a specific Pokémon. Being that Hisuian Avalugg is showing up in Three-Star Raids makes it a bit easier to catch rather than those more challenging Five-Star or Mega-Raid Pokémon. Players can also earn up to five additional daily Raid Passes by spinning Gym Photo Discs so there is no better time to nab the new Hisuian Avalugg.

This is just one part of the Winter Holiday event set to close out 2022 in Pokémon GO. More festivities are planned up until Dec. 31 so be on the lookout for other winter-themed activities.
