For those who are working their way through the history of the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research in Pokémon Go, starting September 5, there will be a step for players to complete where they can catch Hoopa in its confined form. The Pokémon will be available to all players working through the Misunderstood Mischief Special Research, which began at the start of Season of Evil. So, since Hoopa is a guaranteed encounter for this special research task, will you be able to catch a brilliant Confined Hoopa?



Like other new Pokémon arriving in Pokémon Go, the glossy form of Hoopa Confined will not be available. Instead, if a shiny form appears for those Mythical Pokémon, it will happen during a special event and the event will be centered around releasing a shiny Hoopa.

However, as Season of Evil focuses on the arrival of Hoopa, players will have the opportunity to catch this Pokémon and add it to their collection. Therefore, we can look forward to another opportunity in the future to grasp its brilliant form. When we mean further into the future, we are talking about several years. Mew, for example, only recently received its bright form earlier this year after the Tour celebration: Kanto, and Mew had been in Pokémon Go since 2018.

We don't know when we can expect the brilliant form of Hoopa to become available, but players can expect to complete a special research project to access it when it does. Catching Mythical Pokémon is never an easy task.
