The _water] and Dark type Pokémon, Hisuian Samurott, will make their debut in three-star raids! It has an unusual white shiny, and gains the Dark typing that the Unovan Samurott doesn’t have. Hisuian Samurott made their debut in Pokémon Legends: Arceus on the Nintendo Switch. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus Oshawott could evolve into Dewott, and then into Hisuian Samurott, but in GO at present Hisuian Samurott will only be available from the raids.
Their Legends Arceus Pokédex entry reads:
‘Hard of heart and deft of blade, this rare form of Samurott is a product of the Pokémon’s evolution in the region of Hisui. Its turbulent blows crash into foes like ceaseless pounding waves.’
