Pokémon GO: Start of the solstice event - with Shiny Regigigas

Pokémon GO

Niantic announces a solstice event: The in-game event is about to start. The activation will take place on June 17th, at 10 a.m., as the developers announced in a current blog entry. You will then have until June 20, 8 p.m., to take part in the event - and to secure the rewards. Regigigas will appear in the raid battles of level 5 until July 1, 2021. With a little luck, you will even encounter the shiny form of the pocket monster. During the period mentioned, you will also receive field research tasks related to raid battles from PokéStops.

You should also keep an eye out for Pokémon such as Lunastones, Sunstones and Seemops in the wild - Relaxo apparently also appears. In our latitudes you can also see Yanma, Panflam and Sesokitz in their summer form. You can also meet a Shimmering Yanma at the Solstice event in Pokémon Go. If you are on the other hand in the southern hemisphere, you will discover Schneppke, Shnebedeck and Sesokitz in winter form - and with luck a Shiny Schneppke. Alola-Knogga, Yanma and Lilminip can be found in raid battles in this country, while Lapras, Keifel and Schneppke are found in the southern hemisphere.

Pokémon GO: Start of the new season - this is new in the adventure from today

In Pokémon Go, not only new events are waiting for you in June 2021. With the start of the new month, a new season also begins. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1374049,1373543,1373214,1373094'; Worldwide, however, Pokémon such as Lunastein, Sonnfel and Klikk are available in raid battles. "In event field research tasks you can encounter Pokémon like Yanma in the northern hemisphere and Pokémon like Schneppke in the southern hemisphere. If you're lucky, you might even get Silver Sanana Berries as a reward," writes Niantic when announcing the new event in Pokémon Go. Additional bonuses are also available. This is how wild lunastones and sunstones appear all over the world. After that, Lunastone can only be found in the Eastern Hemisphere and Sonnfel only in the Western Hemisphere. Your buddy Pokémon, in turn, provides more Poké Balls and other items at the solstice. In addition, you only have to give him half as much as usual to earn hearts.

Pokemon Go's Shadow Ho-Oh Starts Today

Pokemon Go's newest Legendary Shadow Pokemon is rolling out around the world. Team Go Rocket has corrupted another Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go, this time targeting the Legendary Pokemon Ho-Oh. From now until August 31st, players around the world can challenge Giovanni for a chance to capture Shadow Ho-Oh. While Shadow Ho-Oh has stronger than normal attacks thanks to its corrupted form, Shadow Ho-Oh still has a double weakness against Rock-type Pokemon. Pokemon like Tyranitar, Golem, or Rhyperior should be able to beat Ho-Oh in a one-on-one battle, especially if you've already forced Giovanni to burn through one or more shields.

Players can only encounter Giovanni if they have a Super Rocket Radar, but Pokemon Go is making it a bit easier to encounter the villainous leader with the help of the new 'A Seven-Colored Shadow' Special Research. By completing the tasks in this special research, players can obtain a Super Rocket Radar to quickly face Giovanni and earn a Shadow Ho-Oh encounter. Each part of the Special Research can be seen below:
