Pokemon GO

A few new events are coming to Pokemon GO starting today. Beginning at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, “unique Field Research will be available with some exciting rewards, including a Raid Battle appearance by Pokemon such as Aerodactyl.”

Also, throughout the celebration, Rock-type Pokemon like Geodude, Lileep, and Nosepass will appear more frequently in the wild. Buddy Pokemon will earn Candy four times faster throughout the event, and you’ll receive extra XP for spinning the Photo Discs at PokeStops or Gyms. That’s up to 10 times the usual amount if this is your first time encountering a unique PokeStop or Gym.

Pokemon GO Adventure Week ends on June 5.


Niantic has started to outline the next Pokemon GO Community Day. For the June 2018 event, Larvitar is getting the spotlight.

Larvitar will come with a currently-unspecified exclusive move. Niantic is also planning 3x catch XP and 3-hour lures.

The next Pokemon GO Community Day will take place on June 16.


Pokemon GO will soon be introducing a new wave of Pokemon. Niantic announced today that some special Pokemon from the tropical Alola region, originally from Kanto, will be added to the game.

A specific date has not yet been announced. Niantic says the new Pokemon will be appearing “in the coming weeks.”


Niatic is bringing back a Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO. Starting today, players will be able to encounter Ho-Oh once again in Raid Battles. Ho-Oh will appear in Gyms across the globe alongside Latias and Latios, which will remain in their designated regions.

Ho-Oh will be in Pokemon GO until June 7. If you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Ho-Oh…
