Pro tip by Professor WillowIf you are unable to get Sliggoo with its best moveset, we recommend to use Water Gun/Dragon Pulse. You will lose around 0% DPS and TDO, which makes these moves a viable alternative to Sliggoo's strongest moveset (Tackle/Dragon Pulse).

These do not stack with each other. Additionally, High and Max Level Mega-Evolved Pokémon grant an increased chance to obtain Candy XL when catching a Pokémon that shares a type with it.

      Note on Primal Kyogre and Groudon
      • Primal Kyogre boosts Water-, Electric- and Bug-type attacks and Pokémon.
      • Primal Groudon boosts Fire-, Grass- and Ground-type attacks and Pokémon.

              Catch probability with multiple throws

              In order to help Trainers understand their overall odds when catching Sliggoo, we enable the functionality to showing the total chance to catch it depending on the number of available throws. We calculate this chance as if you repeated the same throw N-number of times.

              To activate this functionality, change the number of Number of throws to a value greater than 1. The Number of throws option is available in the configuration options above the chart

              Catch rate formula

              Pokémon GO catch rate formula can be expressed as follows:

              • CATCH_MULTIPLIERS = ball * curve * berry * throwType * (type1Medal + type2Medal / 2)
              • CATCH_RATE = 1 - Math.pow(1 - baseCatchRate / (2 * cpm), CATCH_MULTIPLIERS)

              There are different multipliers that come into play when calculating catch rate.

              Curved throws are more effective than regular throws, stronger types of Poké Ball have a higher catch rate, and using a Razz Berry or a Golden Razz Berry also improves your chances.

              X, Omega RubyIt drives away opponents by excreting a sticky liquid that can dissolve anything. Its eyes devolved, so it can’t see anything.
              Y, Alpha SapphireIts four horns are a high-performance radar system. It uses them to sense sounds and smells, rather than using ears or a nose.
              SunIt has trouble drawing a line between friends and food. It will calmly try to melt and eat even those it gets along well with.
              MoonThis Pokémon’s mucous can dissolve anything. Toothless, it sprays mucous on its prey. Once they’re nicely dissolved, it slurps them up.
              Ultra SunIt crawls along sluggishly. The swirly protrusion on its back is filled with its brain and other organs.
              Ultra MoonIts entire body is covered with gooey mucus that can dissolve anything. Be sure to put gloves on if you’re going to touch it.
              SwordAlthough this Pokémon isn’t very strong, its body is coated in a caustic slime that can melt through anything, so predators steer clear of it.
              ShieldThe lump on its back contains its tiny brain. It thinks only of food and escaping its enemies.
