Hoopa Confined is a light-purple Pokémon that resembles a person. It has green eyes with yellow sclerae, a yellow ring on its forehead, a little, pink dot beneath each eye, and dark pink hair wrapped back in a ponytail. A dark gray horn curls slightly upward on each side of its skull. A dark pink, V-shaped pattern on its breast and a short, golden spike on each shoulder distinguish it. Its limbs are not linked to its body and instead float beside it; each arm is adorned with a little golden spike identical to those on its shoulders. It features dark pink bands around each wrist and mitten-like hands. It has a wispy tail instead of legs. Hoopa wears three gold rings: one enormous one around its lower torso and one on each of its horns.

Hoopa Unbound is a bipedal Pokémon that has six limbs. It is mostly light blue in color, with purple fur and hair. Its ponytail is longer and bushier, and it is secured in place by two golden rings. Its hair now covers its chin and the back of its neck, forming a pointed beard. The horns have spiky purple hair around the bases and are less curled. Each horn has three gold rings: two around the base and one in the center. It features yellow eyes with white sclerae, a pointed dark gray nose, a tiny hole within the ring on its forehead, and large fangs in the rear of its lower jaw. Its limbs are unattached and float next to its body, similar to Hoopa Confined. Instead of a little gold spike, the arms now feature enormous, dark gray spikes that protrude from holes along their sides. Each arm features three clawed fingers, a gold ring around the wrist, and a gold ring around the base. A gold ring encircles a hole in the middle of its breast, and many tufts of purple fur surround its body. Another enormous gold ring encircles its waist, and little tufts of fur protrude from underneath it. Each leg has a purple stripe that expands at the knee and two gold rings around the ankle. Its feet have gold points that curve upward. This variant also features a tail with a purple stripe along the top and an arrow-shaped tip. Hoopa Unbound shares the title of tallest Dark-type with Mega Gyarados.

Hoopa’s body rings can twist space and transfer anything by passing them through its hoop. Hoopa Unbound is considered to be Hoopa’s actual form, with the ability to bend dimensions. This gives it the ability to grab everything in the globe. As shown in the anime, Hoopa Unbound can move between its rings in any shape, and he has the capacity to control and summon strong Legendary Pokémon.
