The Hisui Archduke Raid Day event in Pokémon Go introduced Pokémon Legends Starter: Arceus to the mobile game, and fans showed off their impressive catches.
The Archduke of Hisui Raid Day event in Pokémon Go completed the trio of Hisui Starters on February 11, 2024, following both Typhlosion and Clamiral.
Like previous Raid Day events, Archduke of Hisui’s moment in the spotlight only lasted three hours, meaning fans had a very tight window to capture this Grass/Fighting type.
However, this brief time frame hasn’t stopped some fans from making some truly spectacular captures, which have left many in the community in awe.
Pokémon Go fans dazzled by Archduke of Hisui’s catches
Posts across Pokémon Go-centric social media spaces poured in on Sunday, February 11, 2024, as trainers showed off the fruits of their labor during Hisui Archduke Raid Day.
Some trainers have used the internet to ask for luck from others and show theirs in return.
One fan asked how many shiny others had managed to obtain and revealed that he had managed to obtain two out of at least nine attempts.
Unfortunately, many trainers have reported that they were unable to catch a shiny despite their best efforts. While many fans have had their luck tested, some have even managed to surpass the original poster in the number of shinys found.
A few lucky trainers even managed to catch Hisui Shundo Archduke during the event.
“First Shundo, really excited,” one trainer shared and claimed he won “Superb Owl Sunday” thanks to the event coinciding with the 2024 Super Bowl Championship.
Another player shared that he also managed to obtain an Archduke of Hisui Shundo, saying that he finally got the iconic Pokémon after 87,000 captures.
Unfortunately for those who missed their chance to participate in the Hisui Archduke Raid Day event, it’s unclear when this Pokémon will be regularly featured in regular Pokémon Go content.
Hopefully those who missed their own Shiny or Hundo capture won’t have to wait too long to see Archduke of Hisui reappear.
