Event Date and time
Hisuian Discoveries Event Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. to Tuesday, August 2, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. local time


Being one of the mud bois, Whiscash is an excellent mon for the Great League and is also viable in the Ultra League.

Whiscash can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1120 – 1186 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1401 – 1482 CP at Level 25 with Rainy or Sunny weather boost

Being a Water and Ground type, it has only one weakness: Grass. However, it is a 2x weakness.  

High-level trainers can easily solo Whiscash, while trainers of a lower level might need 2-3 trainers to take down Whiscash.
