While the introduction of Legendary Raids have been loads of fun, it’s been a while since we’ve had a Pokemon Go event. Well the wait is over as Pokemon Go plans to kick off the coming equinox! The weather’s getting cooler up North and a little warmer down South, which means both are in the perfect temperature range for some walking. And as long as we’re walking, we might as well make the most of it with some awesomely egg-citing perks!
When: 1pm PDT Friday, September 22nd till Monday, October 2nd
- X2 Stardust for catching, hatching – and most likely feeding
- Special 2km Eggs that hatch Chansey, Lavitar and Mareep
- X3 EXP for New Pokemon Bonus
- Special Boxes (In-Game Store) that give Lucky Eggs, Lures & SUPER INCUBATORS!
Now Super Incubators were an item that was found in the coding a few weeks ago in late August, and as we suspected, Super Incubators will reduce the hatch time of eggs, making hatching 1.5 times faster! Though most notably in that update was also the coding for more Shiny Effects and 3rd Generation Pokemon. Does that mean Pokemon Go plans to roll out Gen 3 ahead of schedule in the coming weeks? Time will tell, but for now let’s focus on the Event at hand!
Additionally with the Equinox Event, the New Pokemon Bonus will come in handy as Mewtwo Raids are slowly becoming more open to players. Though beyond that, the special 2km Eggs will help players acquire the super rare Ampharos (Mareep’s final evolution) and Blissey (Chansey’s even bulkier evolution). Though the biggest draw will happen at the tail end of this event as after September 30th, the Legendary Dogs/ Beasts will switch locations giving players a chance to catch something completely new to their region!
So stock up on your incubators and get your walking shoes out because it’s about to be a fun week and a half!
