Incense Day and More Found in Latest Data Mine

DATA MINE OF NEW TEXT ITEMS ADDED TO POKÉMON GO CODE

Howdy Trainers! In their latest data mine, Pokeminers have found new text updates in the code for remote raid passes, Incense Day, a new Buddy event and new features, Abra CD details, and more! Let’s take a look at all that has been found.

Please keep in mind, NONE of this information has been confirmed by Niantic, any and all events and Pokémon reported in this data mine can be changed and/or completely removed at any time. Take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement about them is made.

NEW BADGES

Pokémon GO Safari Zone - Liverpool header

New Badges were found for the Liverpool and Philadelphia Safari Zone events, more specifically referring to the City Explorer Pass. 

Note that these events have been postponed, but Trainers with a ticket can still enjoy gameplay in their local area during the SZ time window.

ABRA CD DETAILS

Abra Community Day Header

More text updates referring to Abra Community Day were found, and they look exciting! Like leaked before, it now seems certain Alakazam’s exclusive move will be Counter

Our eye dropped on something else though… Elite TM’s in the Community Box?! If this will be the case, Niantic sure found a way to make their CD sale boxes more exciting! 

Elite TM’s are special TM’s that were announced as a GBL Season 1 reward at the end of the season for Trainers reaching Rank 7. With these Elite TM’s, Trainers can change the fast and charge moves of a Pokémon to a move of their own choice (out of the Pokémon’s move pool). With the currently available TM’s, this move change process is random.

VOLBEAT & ILLUMISE

Looks like Volbeat and Illumise will break out of their regions, and start appearing globally! Niantic has done the same with Plusle and Minun in the past, so this doesn’t look too weird.

INCENSE DAY

It seems like a new type of event is on its way. By the looks of it, Incense Day will feature a specific Pokémon (like Sentret, as was found in the code), and Incense will last for 3 hours during this event. There will also be an Incense bundle in the Shop, but it’s uncertain whether this will be different from the current ones available.

It also looks like there will be specific types spawning when an Incense is activated during the event, with potential type shuffles during the event time. We’ll have to see what the future brings!

BUDDY EVENT AND MORE

Pokémon GO Buddy Run Header

In addition to the code on Buddy gifts that was found earlier, new text updates were found! It seems that some sort of Buddy event will take place, which will come with some exciting features. 

From your Buddy bringing you Poké Balls every 30 minutes, to getting your Buddy excited faster, these features would be perfect to enhance gameplay in the current times of COVID-19.

REMOTE RAID PASSES

Additional code text was found on remote raid passes, like item descriptions and bundle descriptions. It’s still not clear whether these remote raid passes will only be available through the in-game Shop, or that Trainers get one free remote raid pass each day. Only time will tell!

TODAY VIEW

We assume this means future Spotlight Hours will be shown in the in-game Today View. Handy!

WHAT'S NEXT?!

A lot of exciting stuff was found once again! When and if these findings can be seen in Pokémon GO remains unsure, but it doesn’t hurt to be a bit excited, does it? What are you looking forward to, Trainers? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!

Niantic keeps busy enhancing the Pokémon GO experience during these uncertain times, and we can’t be more grateful. Stay safe and healthy, y’all!
