- Hisuian Typhlosion, a new Fire and Ghost-type Pokemon, will debut in Pokemon GO on January 14 in a three-star raid event.
- Players must work together to defeat Hisuian Typhlosion and capture it during the limited event.
- A number of event bonuses will be active, including additional free Raid Passes, an increased chance to encounter a shiny Hisuian Typhlosion, and limited-time bonuses available with an event ticket.
Hisuian Typhlosion from Pokemon Legends: Arceus will make its debut in Pokemon GO in an upcoming Raid Day event on January 14. During the event, Hisuian Typhlosion will appear in three-star raids, and Pokemon GO players may earn additional rewards alongside the successful capture of the Ghost Flame Pokemon.
Typhlosion made its Pokemon GO debut in 2017, and fans eagerly awaited its Hisuian counterpart after the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus for Nintendo Switch in 2022. Unlike the original Fire-type Typhlosion from the Johto region, the Hisuian Typhlosion is a Fire and Ghost-type Pokemon believed to eat and purify lost spirits. As a result, it’s often referred to as a Ghost Flame Pokemon in lore from the ancient Hisui region. Nearly two years after the release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Pokemon GO players will finally be able to add the Hisuian Typhlosion to their collection.

Trainers have one more Pokemon to collect as Dusk Form Lycanroc makes its debuts in Pokemon GO during the Lustrous Odyssey event.
Niantic’s latest blog post for Pokemon GO confirms that the Hisuian Typhlosion Raid Day event will be held on January 14 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time. Similarly to Pokemon GO Community Day events, Hisuian Typhlosion will only be available for a short duration. Players must work together and defeat Hisuian Typhlosion in three-star raids in order to capture the Pokemon. A number of event bonuses will be active, including up to five additional free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs and an increased chance to encounter a shiny Hisuian Typhlosion.
Pokemon GO Hisuian Typhlosion Raid Day Event
- Sunday, January 14, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time
Moreover, the Remote Raid limit in Pokemon GO will be temporarily increased to 20 from Saturday, January 13, 2024, at 4:00 PM PST to Sunday, January 14, 2024, at 7:00 PM PST. Raid Day event tickets will be available for $5.00 in the in-game shop, granting Pokemon GO players additional bonuses on January 14 from 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM local time. These limited-time bonuses include an increased drop rate for Rare Candy XL, 50% more XP, and double Stardust drops from Hisuian Typhlosion raid battles. It’s worth noting that the event ticket will only be available during the Raid Day event from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, despite the bonuses being active until 10:00 PM.
January 2024 appears to be a big month for Niantic’s popular game since various Raid events will be held in Pokemon GO soon. However, Niantic teases that “only time will tell” when Hisuian Typhlosion will return in Pokemon GO, so players may want to prepare for the event and ensure they’re ready to defeat and catch the Pokemon.
After a test run via an April Fools’ joke on Google Maps, Pokemon GO was released to the public in the summer of 2016. The AR mobile app saw unparalleled success and continues to be one of the largest mobile games in the world, pulling in billions for developer Niantic.
