Zorua made it's Pokémon GO debut during the October 25th, 2022's Shuppet Spotlight Hour but unfortunately the event was bugged and all Zorua caught retained the stats such as the height, CP, and attacks of the Pokémon it originally took on the form of. The Zorua surprise will not occur for time zones after GMT+13.
Zorua Surprise Bugged for October 25th, 2022's Shuppet Spotlight Hour
Trainers, we are aware of a bug where Zorua, a Pokémon with a planned surprise encounter during October 25th’s Shuppet Spotlight Hour, retains stats such as the height, CP, and attacks of the Pokémon it originally took on the form of.
The Zorua surprise that occurred in time zones including and prior to GMT+13 will not occur in time zones after while we fix this. Shuppet Spotlight Hour will still occur.
Zorua already caught by Trainers will not be able to be Traded, sent to Pokémon HOME, or allowed in GO Battle League until this issue is resolved. Please stay tuned for further details. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
