In contrast to being able to obtain Shinies without a PokéRadar, an Albino Radar is required for Albino Hunting. It can be obtained by purchasing it for 750,000 Interaction Points on the Albino Hunting page or by obtaining it from another user, as it is possible to buy and trade multiple Albino Radars. Albino Radars are activated by Interaction Points, but only until server reset at midnight, wherefore it will be necessary to use Interaction Points to activate it again the following day. Albino Hunting does not require a Hypermode account.
The Albino Radar boosts the chance of finding an Albino Pokémon. It is powered by Interaction Points and the intensity of the boost depends both on spent Interaction Points and on the current level of the Albino Radar. The level of the Albino Radar can be raised once a day, by spending at least the number of Interaction Points needed to level up. This Level Up happens at server reset and the new level applies for the boost of the next day. But it is also possible to lose a level by not powering the Albino Radar for a day, this can be avoided by paying at least the minimum amount of 100 Interaction Points each day.
The maximal level is 7, which gives a maximum boost of 16,284.0% when paying the maximum amount of Interaction Points which is 100,000.
Albino Radar Level
The Albino Radar is uncharged and does not have a level when it is first purchased. Since the minimum charge in the Albino Radar is 100 IP, which is the amount of IP required for the first level, it is not possible to have a level 0 Albino Radar.
|Level||IP to next level|
The most important boost is provided by the Albino Radar, but the Übercharm also doubles the chance of hatching an Albino. Presently, the only other known way of boosting Albino chances are by using Z-Crystals matching the desired Pokemon's type, obtained in the monthly Type Race.
Albino Radar Boost
Following table shows the boost that the Albino Radar provides depending on its level and the Interaction Points that get invested. The minimum amount is 100 Interaction Points and the maximum amount is 100,000. The level up boost is the minimum amount of Interaction Points that need to be paid to level up from the level before to the shown level.
|Level||Boost for paying|
|100 IP||Level up IP||100,000 IP|
Z-Crystals are obtained from the Type Race. When used, they boost Albino chances of the corresponding Type by 33% for the rest of that day. This stacks with the Albino Radar, thus it is advisable to only use Z-Crystals when the radar is at its max level.
