Pokémon Go's Battle Showdown: Here's Everything You Need To Know About The New Event
Here are all the Pokemon, bonuses and more you can collect from Pokemon Go's latest event.
Pokémon Go's latest event is here: Battle Showdown.
From now until May 14, 2018, you'll have better chances of snagging a Fighting-type Pokémon, such as Machop and Makuhita. But that's not all.
There's also double XP points from Gym and Raid Battles, too, with a bonus - and guaranteed! - 3,000 stardust for participating. Win, however, and you'll secure "at least" one Rare Candy.
"Several actions at Gyms will yield bonuses, including a 2× Badge multiplier, so you can receive even more benefits at a Gym you visit frequently," explains Niantic, who make the games. "Just stopping by? Spinning the Photo Disc at Gyms will also yield more items!"
Don't forget that Professor Willow is teaming up with Trainers to help them grab new activities and challenges for bonus in-game rewards, including "unique storylines" that reveal the mystery behind the Mythical Pokémon, Mew. Right now a brand-new set Flying- and Electric-Type Pokémon Field Research tasks have been released, including "skill-based tasks that will challenge your abilities as a Trainer".
"If you’re able to earn enough stamps for your Research Breakthrough, you’ll have the opportunity to catch the Legendary Electric- and Flying-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region—Zapdos!" adds Niantic. "So, get out there and conduct some electrifying research this month. Stay safe, and happy exploring!"
