Welcome to our ‘Pokémon Go: Hoopa Confined & Hoopa Unbound?’ guide. If you’re curious about how to find Hoopa Confined & Hoopa Unbound within Pokemon Go, we’ve got you covered.
This “Season of Mischief” is over, and Trainers who remained using Pokemon Go through it got a new Hoopa form. Yes, Hoopa Unbound has officially launched!
Hoopa Unbound also will modify its typing, so it’s a great excuse to include it to your collections. Getting it in the wilderness isn’t as easy as it seems. Find out how to access Hoopa Unbound, the cost of shifting forms, and the difference between Hoopa Confined & Hoopa Unbound.
How to acquire both of them?
Trainers have only been able to obtain Hoopa in Pokemon Go by completing the first 3 steps of the “Misunderstood Mischief Special Research” which indeed was part of the Season of Mischief in 2021.
There’s no way to access Hoopa right now if you skipped out on claiming the Special Research tale. Hoopa is temporarily unavailable until Niantic gets it back for something like a possible event.
You can free your Hoopa Confined by investing 50 Candy & 10,000 Stardust. It works like evolution: click on Hoopa & select ‘Change Form’. If you like, you can turn Hoopa Unbound again into Hoopa Confined for 10 Candy plus 2,000 Stardust, or a sixth of the initial cost.
Then finish the second mission in the newest “Mischief Unbound Special Research” narrative to catch a Hoopa Confined. If you don’t finish the Misunderstood Mischief tale in time, you can buy a ticket worth $4.99 via in-game Shop.
What makes Hoopa Unbound different from Hoopa Unbound Confined?
The Hoopa Confined, is a Psychic/Ghost type, however, in Hoopa Unbound, it is a Psychic/Dark type, which alters his resistances and vulnerabilities.
Hoopa Unbound’s stats will be distinct from Confined’s. Below is a comparison of both the form’s stats:
Attack – 261
Defense – 187
Stamina – 173
Max CP – 3793
Attack – 311
Defense – 191
Stamina – 173
Max CP – 4530
As shown in the list above, Hoopa Unbound’s Attack now outranks Mewtwo, but its Defense gets a tiny raise and its max CP increases.
Only its Stamina stat remains unchanged at 173. This is important since both Hoopa forms are considered glass cannons in warfare.
