Nature & Nifflers & Poachers, oh my!


This Harry Potter: Wizards Unite guide is focused on the one-off event called Nature & Nifflers! The event will have all kinds of spawns for the Magizoology Family in the form of a new Oddity mechanic called the Poacher (explained below).

I have also included a video guide from my YouTube channel in case you are unable to read through all the tasks, or if you prefer video format!

How the Poacher Plays

The Poacher (see image below) is a new Confoundable known for trafficking creatures in order to gain something from it. It’s up to you to rescue the creatures contained by the Poacher by battling them. Look out for Oddity traces on your map. (They do not have a colorful flare).

Once you encounter and defeat a Poacher, the Poacher will then “drop” the items and Foundables they are carrying with them. After exiting your one-on-one duel, look around the map for Magizoology Foundables! The Poacher has dropped them in his haste and left behind rewards for you to reap! These are the Foundables you can rescue from the map after the Poacher leaves:

  • Niffler
  • Mooncalf
  • Billywig
  • Young Graphorn
  • Baby Niffler
  • Occamy Eggs (!)
  • Unicorn (!!)
  • Newt Scamander (!!!)

Keep in mind that there are a few of the above Foundables that are extra tricky to return! Try to stock up on Dawdle Draughts and Exstimulo Potions as much as possible before facing a difficult Confoundable! Another note: returning Traces the Poacher has left behind can also reward you rare Potion Ingredients, Tonic for Trace Detection, Gold, or Silver Keys alongside the Foundable fragment you returned!

Why is the poacher only leaving Doxy fragments? That wasn’t even one of the list of possible fragments the poacher might leave behind.

That’s not what the poacher is leaving behind. The poacher is a reskinned Doxy. You’ll see Magizoology foundables show up after you catch each poacher.

I thought the event was a lot of fun! But it was annoying that the Poacher took 2-3 spells to defeat.
