- Purchasing from the Delibird Presents shop for 20,000 Poke Dollars after defeating at least six gyms.
- Completing four-star or higher Tera Raids
- Buying from Porto Marinada Auctions
- Participating in the Academy Ace Tournament

You’ll find a yellow “Hyper Training” text box above his head, indicating that he’s the person to speak to. The Hyper Trainer lets you improve any Pokemon level 50 or higher by raising one of their IVs – HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Attack, Sp. Defense and Speed. Furthermore, a Gold Bottle Cap will increase each stat in one go. You can use one Gold Bottle Cap or six Silver Bottle Caps to bring a Pokemon to its highest potential.
