Evolution Event / Raid Day Announced

Trainers! Niantic has announced a new event AND a new Raid Day! Evolution Event will run from Thursday, December 5th, 2019 at 1:00 PM PST through Thursday, December 12th at 1:00 PM PST (GMT -8).

This event will feature Pokémon who require unique or special ways to evolve. As an added bonus, shiny Burmy AND all its evolutions will be available to catch/evolve!

Trainers,

Perhaps one of the greatest lessons we learn from Pokémon is that it’s possible to evolve into a surprising and cool being—sometimes we just need a little boost or help! Let’s celebrate how much your Pokémon (and you) have grown this year with the first-ever Evolution Event and an accompanying Raid Day. Pokémon Evolution can depend on whether a Pokémon is a certain gender or has spent time as a Buddy Pokémon. Sometimes Evolution occurs because of particular items, times of day, or Lure Modules. During this event, you’ll be able to explore all these unique ways Pokémon evolve!
