The Pokemon GO World Championships competition will end on August 15, 2023, a Tuesday. Trainers can expect an increase in spawns from a selection of Pokemon that come from various places during the festivities. Along with Chinchou, Wooper, Sableye, Meditite, Wooloo, Bunnelby, Drilbur, Scraggy, Onix, and Lickitung, the Fighting-type Pokemon Machop will show up in the wild more regularly. Spheal, a dual-type Pokemon from the Hoenn area, will also show up more frequently.
During this event, many players will have the chance to catch a ton of Spheal, and it appears that some trainers have been trying to look up information on this Pokemon as well as its evolutions, Sealeo and Walrein. We’ll go over how to catch Spheal, how to evolve it, and the optimal movesets for the evolutionary line.
What is Spheal?
Spheal made his anime debut as a generation three Pokemon in the episode “The Spheal of Approval” from the Ruby and Sapphire season. Spheal is frequently chosen as the preferred Pokemon of a supporting character, hence it got a good amount of screen time. At level 32, Spheal becomes Sealeo, and at level 44, Walrein. The Spheal’s epithet is explained by the fact that, according to the Pokedex, they clap when they are happy.
|First appearance in anime||Pokemon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire The Spheal of Approval|
|First appearance in game||Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire|
|Evolution||Base evolution of Walrein, evolves into Sealeo|
|1st Evo level||32|
|2nd Evo level||44|
|Pokedex Entry||Spheal is much faster rolling than walking to get around. When groups of this Pokémon eat, they all clap at once to show their pleasure. Because of this, their mealtimes are noisy.|
Spheal Base Stats
Ways for Getting Spheal and Turning It into Sealeo
Spheal will have a higher spawn rate up until 8 p.m. local time on August 15. After the event is over, users will have to look for Spheal in Pokemon GO near water or while it’s raining or snowing.
Pokemon Go players must gather 25 Candies in order for Spheal to evolve into Sealeo. This can be done by giving the professor multiple Spheals in exchange, by utilizing Pinap berries in battle, or by designating Spheal as their Buddy Pokemon and walking about with it.
Evolving Sealeo into Walrein
Finally, trainers must give Sealeo 100 Candy in order for it to evolve into Walrein.
The Best Move-set for Walrein in Pokemon Go
In Pokemon Go, Powder Snow, Earthquake, and Icicle Spear are the greatest movements for Walrein. Powder Snow is a Fast Move.
Before the January Community Day, Walrein had a very poor assortment of fast moves, none of which were capable of producing adequate energy. It can finally create enough energy now that Powder Snow is a part of its move pool to make it somewhat competitive in the Go Battle League.
You certainly want Earthquake if you’re looking for Walrein’s finest Charged Moves. It has a low energy cost, causes a ton of damage, and provides incredibly good defense against the two sorts of opponents that Walrein is most vulnerable to: Rock and Electric.
All of the Pokemon Go moves Walrein can do
The three potential Fast Moves and four potential Charged Moves that Walrein can learn range from Ice to Water to Ground. Below is a list of each one:
Walrein Fast Moves
- Frost Breath (Ice)
- Powder Snow (Ice)
- Waterfall (Water)
Walrein Charged Moves
- Blizzard (Ice)
- Earthquake (Ground)
- Icicle Spear (Ice)
- Water Pulse (Water)
What are the Spheal Line’s Best Moves?
The following is a list of the top suggestions for the Water/Ice type line, Spheal, Sealeo, and Walrein:
- Fast Attack: Water Beam
- Charged Attack: Aurora Beam
- Fast Attack: Water Gun
- Charged Attack: Body Slam, Aurora Beam, Return
- Fast Attack: Waterfall
- Charged Attack: Blizzard
Weaknesses of Spheal, Sealeo, and Walrein
These elemental kinds will deal more damage to the three Hoenn region Ice/Water-types:
The three Pokemon are also immune to attacks of the Ice and Water types.
The following are some of the strongest (non-legendary) countermeasures to use in battle against Walrein (as well as Sealeo and Spheal):
How effective is the Icicle Spear in Pokemon Go?
Icicle Spear appears actually to be a really good addition to Walrein’s moveset. In the Go Battle League, it’s a useful move for baiting shields because it’s a low-cost Charged Move that provides a respectable amount of STAB damage.
We should note that a Walrein with Icicle Spear will only be effective if it also has Powder Snow as a Fast Move because it actually needs a high-energy-generating attack to have rapid enough access to Icicle Spear in the first place.
As the Pokemon GO World Championships draw to a close on August 15, 2023, trainers are in for an exciting treat with increased spawns of various Pokemon, including the adorable Spheal. Hailing from the Hoenn region, Spheal rolls into the spotlight, captivating players with its joyful claps when happy. Its evolution journey involves transforming into Sealeo at level 32, and then maturing into the mighty Walrein at level 44. During this event, trainers have the opportunity to catch plenty of Spheal and explore its evolutions, Sealeo and Walrein. These Water/Ice types come alive with moves like Waterfall and Blizzard, engaging in epic battles against their weaknesses while charming fans with their unique abilities. As the festivities come to an end, the memories of clapping Spheal will linger on, a joyful testament to the unity and spirit of the Pokemon GO community.
