Whismur is proving elusive for Pokemon Go players in the latest update.
The powerful pokemon is the first in a family of three evolutions capable of causing earthquakes with their voice.
Whismur can evolve into Loudred and Exploud.
Express.co.uk explains how to catch and evolve Whismur into Loudred and Exploud.
What are Whismur, Loudred and Exploud?
Whismur is the 293 Pokemon to be added to Pokemon Go.
The creature is available in the Hoenn region and is a normal-type Pokemon.
The Pokedex describes Whismur: “Normally, Whismur’s voice is very quiet – it is barely audible if one is paying close attention. However, if this Pokemon senses danger, it starts crying at an earsplitting volume.”
The evolutions for Whismur are Loudred and Exploud.
The Pokedex says of Loudred: “Loudred’s bellowing can completely decimate a wood-frame house. It uses its voice to punish its foes. This Pokémon’s round ears serve as loudspeakers.”
And it describes Exploud as: “Exploud triggers earthquakes with the tremors it creates by bellowing. If this Pokémon violently inhales from the ports on its body, it’s a sign that it is preparing to let loose a huge bellow.”
How do you catch and evolve Whismur on Pokemon Go?
As usual, you will need to catch multiple Pokemon to secure candies evolve Whismur into its next stages in the family.
To get Loudred, you will need to collect 12 candies.
This evolution will produce the second tier in a powerful earthquake-creating family of Pokemon.
To evolve Loudred to Exploud, you will need 50 candies.
Whismur has a fairly rare respawn rate, meaning you will have to work hard to get enough candies to secure the powerful Exploud.
Whismur has a 50 percent capture rate and a 20 percent flee rate, according to the Pokemon Go Wiki.
Whismur is only available in the wild.
The Pokemon has a resistance to 51 percent of damage from Ghost-type and is weak to 140 percent of damage from Fighting-type Pokemon.
