It’s not doable to acquire Hisuian forms in Pokémon Sword🥺. These unique forms are introduced in the game “Pokémon Legends: Arceus” and aren’t programmed into Pokémon Sword & Shield.

Nevertheless, you can obtain Hisuian forms in “Pokémon Legends: Arceus😄.”

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Hisuian forms represent regional variations of specific Pokémon that have adapted to the distinct environments of the Hisui region.

Here are some instances of how to obtain Hisuian forms in Pokémon Legends: Arceus🔥:

  1. Hisuian Growlithe: Find Hisuian Growlithe in the Veilstone Cape area of the Cobalt Coastlands. To evolve it into Hisuian Arcanine, use a Fire Stone, available for purchase at the Trading Post or found while mining rocks.
  2. Hisuian Voltorb: Capture Hisuian Voltorb in the Sacred Plaza area of the Coronet Highlands. You can evolve it into a Hisuian Electrode using a Leaf Stone.
  3. Hisuian Typhlosion: If you select Cyndaquil as your starting Pokémon, it evolves into Hisuian Typhlosion at level 36 through battles and interactions. Alternatively, catch it in a Space-Time Distortion after completing the story.
  4. Hisuian Lilligant: Capture Petilil in the Cottonsedge Prairie or Holm of Trials areas of the Crimson Mirelands and evolve it using a Sun Stone.
  5. Hisuian Zoroark: Obtain Hisuian Zoroark by looking in the ice caves found on the Bonechill Wastes area in the Alabaster Icelands and catch the Hisuian Zorua. Evolve it at level 30 through battles and interactions.

Keep in mind that whether Hisuian forms will be in other games, such as Pokémon Sword & Shield, depends on whether the game developers release future updates or new versions.

Currently, you can’t bring Hisuian Pokémon, including shiny versions, to games like Pokémon Sword that were released before Legends Arceus😭.

This is because these older games don’t have the code for Hisuian forms. However, it looks like you’ll be able to transfer Hisuian forms into the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games.
