Attention, trainers! Starting 5/24, you won’t want to miss the chance to link your Pokémon HOME account with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, as it will give you access to some unique Mystery Gifts. These gifts include the Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly, all with Hidden Abilities. But what are Hidden Abilities, and why are they so valuable? Read on to find out all the details about these special Pokémon.
In the Pokémon world, Hidden Abilities are special abilities that Pokémon can have, in addition to their usual abilities. Unlike regular abilities, Hidden Abilities cannot be found in the game – they are only available through special means like breeding or events like this. Each Pokémon has only one Hidden Ability, which makes them highly sought-after by trainers who want to create the perfect team.
The Sprigatito, one of the Mystery Gifts available in this event, is a Normal/Fairy-type Pokémon with the Hidden Ability Pixilate. This ability turns all Normal-type moves into Fairy-type moves, giving Sprigatito a unique edge in battles. Its evolution, Florvio, is an adorable flower fairy that will surely charm any trainer.
Fuecoco, another Mystery Gift, is a Fire-type Pokémon with the Hidden Ability Flash Fire. This ability grants immunity to Fire-type moves and increases the Pokémon’s power when hit by a Fire-type move. Its evolved form, Incineroar, is a popular choice for competitive play, so adding a Fuecoco with a Hidden Ability to your collection will surely impress your opponents.
The third Mystery Gift, Quaxly, is a Water-type Pokémon with the Hidden Ability Swift Swim. This ability doubles the Pokémon’s speed in rainy weather, making Quaxly a valuable asset in any rainy-day battles. Its evolved form, Swelto, is a graceful swan-like Pokémon with Water/Flying typing that looks impressive both in battles and contests.
To claim these Mystery Gifts, you’ll need to link your Pokémon HOME account with either Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet between May 24th and June 30th. Once you’ve done that, you’ll receive a notification in your mobile device version of Pokémon HOME that you can claim your gifts. You’ll receive all three Pokémon at once, so make sure you have enough space in your party or Box to accommodate them.
Whether you’re a casual player or a competitive trainer, the special Pokémon available in Pokémon HOME’s latest event are worth the effort. The Hidden Abilities of Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly can give you a competitive edge and make your team stand out. Don’t miss the chance to claim these unique Pokémon before the event ends – link your accounts now and add them to your collection!
